5.0 out of 5 starsPuts Course language in an easy-to-understand guidebook
Reviewed in the United States on September 2, 2019
Writing a book for both beginning and more advanced students of A Course In Miracles is a daunting task. But Dr. Rosenthal succeeds admirably. With Ever-Mind as Spirit or God and Never-Mind as the ego, Dr. Bob takes us through an easy-to-understand description of each with its unique characteristics. Full of everyday examples and illustrative stories, the narrative moves right along describing life according to Course principles as OS1 (Operating System 1) and the ego's tricks and problems as OS2. Numerous real world stories and personal anecdotes from his psychotherapy practice of over thirty years reveal a pathway to happiness by switching from the trials and strife of ego domination to a love and peace filled existence that the Course promotes.
5.0 out of 5 starsTaking ACIMfrom the Head to the Heart
Reviewed in the United States on April 22, 2019
I have been a student of A Course In Miracles since 2003. I have enjoyed many of the teachers of ACIM and have benefited from them all to one degree or another. This book though really took The Course from my head, and put it in my heart. With the insights from this book, I find I can more easily live The Course in daily life. I am now entering a deeper relationship with ACIM. Thank You!!

I really enjoy reading Roberts books, but this one is an exception. I have actually experienced a shift in perception reading it. It holds your interest, and it holds truth. If you want to apply and understand the course, this is a must read.

One may wonder what a new book about the "Course in Miracles" would add. There are many such books, but this one stands in a category apart. It is wisdom distilled, teachings clarified, step by step, without the reader even realizing that he has indeed traveled that long and far. It reminds of that famous Zen story when a Master was asked to explain enlightenment. He said: it's like walking in the fog. After a while, without noticing, you realize that your robe has become wet! Its captivating style combines with its engaging storytelling to offer a unique transformative experience. I believe it will soon become a spiritual classic of lasting value, on its own right. We can only rejoice in knowing that there are more volumes to come!
Learning and practising A Course in Miracles has been described as a journey from mindlessness to mindfulness or, as in the title of this book, from never-mind to ever-mind.
Dr Robert Rosenthal uses his experience both as a psyquiatrist and psychotherapist and as a long time student of ACIM, to offer the reader very practical ways to the transformation of the self into something real and alive. Regardless of whether you've never heard of ACIM or you've been studying it for decades, you'll find this book quite helpful in your spiritual path. And a very entertaining reading too!
Dr. Bob offers many ways of seeing the same principals in a fun nostalgic kind of way. I loved his first book based on ACIM and I am looking forward to reading his upcoming books in this 5-part series. Easy to read and offering clarity. Love it! Thank you Bob!
Bob Rosenthal hat ein wirklich tolles Buch geschrieben! Es erklärt den Kurs auf sehr einfache Art und Weise, ohne ihn zu verändern oder zu verbiegen, was ja doch bei einigen Autoren der Fall ist. Der Kurs soll uns ja aus unserem Traum aufwecken und ihn nicht verschönern! Sehr empfehlenswert - auch für Nicht-Kursschüler!
