Worst book i Tried to listen to in a long time

Would you try another book from Isabel Clarke and/or Scott Douglas Wilson?

No. The book is simultaneously overly abstract, speculative and selective in its references. Some of the chapters borderline pseudo scientific, and remind me of Depack Copra. At one point there is an attempt to find commonalities between old religious texts and quantum mechanic (man has body and soul, and quantum physics shows that matter is both wave and particle, maybe there's something to the old writings!!). This to me, is nonsense, and completely useless posturing. This book is obviously written by someone that espouse a religious kind of spirituality, and as such, is heavily biased.

Has Psychosis and Spirituality turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Yes, the style was very slow for me, and only served to cement my impression of the book as Ivory tower, disconnected-from-reality, rambling.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.

Any additional comments?

I was not even able to return it.

Very helpful

I wish I had read it before!
There are example cases, exercises, first person experiences, be patient with the first chapters being theory heavy. Maybe the constant author references were a bit much, but the book was worth it.
