The concepts aren't new, but Wilde's approach is always interesting, pithy, usually helpful, and readable.

If maintaining a grip on positive attitude and a positive frame of mind is a daily struggle for you (like all the rest of us), Wilde's little book of affirmations can come to your rescue like an emotional first aid kit. It is the absolute BEST of its kind. Don't expect depth here, it is targeted and focused on all the specifics we need help with. It is concentrated for power and punch and does not disappoint. Traveling? You will want to take your aspirin (or Tylenol), your Immodium, and your TUMS, but most of all don't forget to take Wilde's book. No matter what your goals, in this little gem, Wilde will take you to higher ground.

Format: Paperback
I found this book in a quaint little shop by the beach at a low point in my life. It changed my life by opening my mind from the "tick tock" thinking which had my life in a rut. I started taking responsibility for my future and adopted an empowered, positive attitude. I enjoyed Stuart's sense of humor and his ideas had a big impact on me. I ended up reading all of his books, and found most of the others to have empowering ideas, too. The only downside to his books is their lack of a spiritual feeling. For that, I'd recommend reading Yogananda's "Where There Is Light," my favorite spiritual book, which is very easy to understand, gives lots practical advice about real life situations and includes references to biblical passages where appropriate.

Format: Paperback
This book is subtitled: How to expand your personal power and take back control of your life. And it does so mostly on the wilder side of metaphysics. The affirmations are printed in script and interspersed with the highly entertaining normal text - part autobiography, part good advice, part esoteric insights, all of it very uplifting. There are in-deph discussions of affirmations (the different types and how to use them) plus fascinating ideas on the life force and universal law. His descriptions of his astral travels "up the tube" still fascinate me and I love the Ayn Rand reference. Similar books that are equally engrossing: The Greatest Power In The Universe by U.S. Andersen and Cosmic Trigger Vol. I by Robert Anton Wilson.

This is the first book I've read by Stuart Wilde, and I can definitely understand why he is considered "a real character" in the human potential movement - it shows in his use of controversial, yet humorous tones within which his insights are encased.

The main theme of this book seems to be that in order for people to find & use their personal power, they must first take personal responsibility for EVERYTHING in their lives - realizing that their energy "fingerprint" is what is drawing all of their experiences to them. Another aspect of this book has to do with affirmations. Mr. Wilde discusses 3 types of affirmations (thought, feeling, & action), describing what they entail & how to use them to create that which you truly want.

Although I found this book to be quite insightful, I would have preferred a bit less emphasis on the author's political beliefs/views & a little more spiritual depth - but I would still highly recommend it to anyone looking to take personal responsibility on their road to change.

Format: Paperback
Writing a 150 page book about affirmations would be a daunting task for most people. Even though the power of daily affirmations is well established as a means of freeing ones self from negative habits of thinking and is used with great success by groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, the process is usually relatively simple and straightforward. The process and techniques could easily be contained in a folded pamphlet.

Stuart Wilde expanded the entire concept of affirmations in this book. He carries it into a wide-ranging field of metaphysics, manipulation and, probably, magic. The concepts aren't new, but Wilde's approach is always interesting, pithy, usually helpful, and readable.

I have mixed feelings about Stuart Wilde, and similarly mixed feelings about this book. It's good, it's effective and it delivers what is offered on the cover. A means of taking back control of your life.

On the downside, I suppose I'd have preferred to see a stronger division between manipulative energy and merely self-improvement. The distinction is there inside the book, but I'd have liked to see it repeated a few more times.

I recommend this book for anybody who is... searching. And you know who you are. It's like being enlightened. It's the spark you've been looking for, the spark you knew you already had all this time. A small book, to help you realize your potential and your power !

I did not care for book and put it in the pile to donate to the library. The book wasn't what I expected and in reading the first few chapters, it seemed to me that the author of the book was rather a pessimist and I wondered why he was writing a book on affirmations, at the time I was reading the book. Perhaps it was the author's sense of humor that is difficult to read when you can't see body language. Whatever the case, the book was not my cup of tea.
