In her latest book, The Universe Has Your Back, New York Times best-selling author Gabrielle Bernstein teaches listeners how to transform their fear into faith in order to live a divinely guided life. Each story and lesson in the book guides listeners to release the blocks to what they most long for: happiness, security, and clear direction. The lessons help listeners relinquish the need to control so they can relax into a sense of certainty and freedom.

Here goes my honest review.

I listened to this book after a youtube recommendation.
This book is only for those who are deep into esoterics. For me there's too much: "spirit", "feelings", "energy", "universe", "love". Which in itself might not be a bad thing, but it might be too much for even those who enjoyed listening to "The Secret: Law of Attraction". It really feels like listening to a person who is out of touch with reality. And the style is not witty either (that would have made the message more palatable). Mostly it's just listening to tedious sobbing stories of how this woman fears everything, goes through emotional roller coasters and then meditates and "feels a spiritual connection with the universe" and "cosmic love". The book starts with a story of an emotional meltdown she experienced in 2015...and how she's been better since, now that she has unlocked the "wisdom of meditation." But can you really trust advice that comes from such recent experience? To me this is refund material, because the style and the story are incredibly boring, and although the author gives recipes for prayer and meditation, they didn't speak to me so I got no practical takeaway.

Would not recommend to anyone I know.
