Publisher's Summary

The publication of Power vs. Force by Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., reveals to the general public secret information heretofore only shared by the author with certain Nobelists and world leaders.

Analyzing the basic nature of human thought and consciousness itself, the author makes available to everyone the key to penetrating the last barrier to the advancement of civilization and science and resolving the most crucial of all human dilemmas: how to instantly determine the truth or falsehood of any statement or supposed fact.

All human endeavors have the common goal of understanding or influencing human experience. To this end, man has developed numerous descriptive and analytical disciplines: morality, philosophy, psychology, and so on. Regardless of what branch of inquiry one starts from (philosophy, political theory, theology) all avenues of investigation eventually converge at a common meeting point: the quest for an organized understanding of the nature of pure consciousness.

To explain that which is simple can be difficult indeed. Much of this book is devoted to the process of making the simple obvious. If we can understand even one simple thing in depth, we will have greatly expanded our capacity for comprehending the nature of the universe and life itself.

    "Great content but boring narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would recommend this book a friend as the content is fantastic. A lot of research went into this book and I wish I had known about it many years ago already.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration is the weak point in my opinion. The reading is monotonous. A narrator like Peter Lownds would blow this audiobook out of the water and drives sales up.
    The author is an excellent researcher but not the born narrator. His voice makes me fall asleep and oftentimes it's hard to understand.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Bring out a version with Peter Lownds as narrator as an option.

    "Life changing amazing content !"

    Please overlook the monotone reading, this is an amazing book. it lays out a plan in which you can know what does true and what is false. I've tried it and it works.

    "Why Give Up Your True Power by Using Force?"
    Would you listen to Power vs. Force again? Why?

    Yes, in fact I need to. It is so full of profound concepts that I had to back it up frequently to get a second bite at the delicious apple. I know that I wasn't able to absorb everything of value in the book the first time through, and know for sure that even though I backed up a lot, I just couldn't absorb it all.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Using FORCE not only invites resistance and opposition, but especially with men, it demands it. Relying on your innate POWER, while respecting the autonomy of those around you, invites collaboration and cooperation.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It brought up visions of a lot of my tragic failures when I though I could get what I wanted from others by trying to force them. That part of the experience was valuable, but not very pleasant.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Power vs. Force?

    I will try to increase the effectiveness of my true Power by inviting others to collaborate in coming up with shared solutions into which they will be able to provide input.


    Any additional comments?

    This book provides life altering insight.

    "Great content, difficult listen"
    Any additional comments?

    I usually prefer the writer to read the book, but not in this case. His voice is monotone and monotonous. This audio book would be better used to help you fall asleep instead of comprehend the material. I would rather read this book or have a more interesting voice read it.
