Publisher's Summary

Deepak Chopra, Debbie Ford, and Marianne Williamson - New York Times best-selling authors and internationally acclaimed teachers - have joined together to share their knowledge on one of the most crucial obstacles to happiness we face: the shadow. These three luminaries, each with a signature approach, bring to light the parts of ourselves we deny but that still direct our life. For it is only when we embrace our shadow that we discover the gifts of our authentic nature.

The shadow exists within all of us. It is a part of us and yet we spend most of our life running from it. But far from being scary, our dark side holds the promise of a better, more fulfilling life. Our shadow makes itself known every day. It is the reason we get furious over a friend showing up 10 minutes late, yell at our parents or kids when they have done nothing wrong, and sabotage our own success at the worst possible time. Until we are able to embrace our dualistic nature, we will continue to hurt ourselves and those closest to us and fall short of our potential.

Combining the wisdom of three experts, The Shadow Effect is a practical and profound guide to discovering the gifts of our shadow. These three authors powerfully pierce the veil of our unclaimed self, releasing us from the past and propelling us on a journey to wholeness. No longer living a half life, we are capable of achieving our dreams and reclaiming the happiness that is our birthright.

    "Strange Partners"

    I found Deepak's portion great... enlightening and rewarding. The remainder would be well-received by a teenage girl having problems in school. I found it narrow and tough to get through.

    "Disappointed!"

    Deepak Chopra's half of the book was just okay, Other half does NOT deliver in my opinion. I Have almost all of Chopra's books, this one ranks low amongst them.

    "pretty useless"

    i was compelled to write my first review after attempting to listen to this book as i felt i should warn those who, like me, may be looking for a book that will help them to understand, accept and utilize their shadow side; this is probably not the book for you. deepak has quite a few enlightened concepts and gives a list at the end of his section that can actually be applied to ones life so this is where the one star comes in but i would give it a half if i could. however williamson seems to see all of us as having dirty little secrets and repeats this concept so many times over and over without ever giving any useful advise that i had to skip to the next writer. ford, how should i put this: very simplistic, childish, archaic, apocalyptic rhetoric about god and love with a speaking voice that is so painfully overwrought with anguish that i could barely get through the first chapter (i found i was actually embarrassed for her). i managed to get through a few more chapters wanting to see if she had something useful to share but found only the thoughts of some one who is clearly terribly frightened by the dark side of human nature and can think of no other way to deal with it than to admonish everyone for not trying hard enough to be loving. yikes!!!

    "Monotonus Reading"

    You will need to get pass the first reader... Is a great turn off to have such a good contend yet the author reading devoid of emotions makes the listening hard..

    "Too many liberal jabs"

    The author is obviously a professor and his liberal views unnecessarily came thru in this book. I only made about 1/3 of the way thru and just got sick of it. There are so many things that one could use to make points which aren't of controversial nature such as, global warming & the Iraq war. I'm not saying that it was a politically oriented book, but instead there were just these unnecessary statements that some may or may not agree with that were mentioned as if they are facts. I don't know...its just bothered me.

    "Mixed authors -- Mixed impressions"
    What did you like best about The Shadow Effect? What did you like least?

    Marianne's part was best for me, then Debbie's.


    Would you recommend The Shadow Effect to your friends? Why or why not?

    Only if they know they already like all three authors or if they want to use it as an introduction to theses authors.


    What three words best describe the narrators’s performance?

    Mixed.


    Could you see The Shadow Effect being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Did the sample include all three authors?

    "Yikes!"

    The first narrator was SO bad I couldn't believe it. The gentleman is better but seems to keep making the same point over and over...and over. I cannot bring myself to listen anymore.
