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.
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 was very disappointed in this book. He says the book "is not to give you nice words to say to yourself..." So why call the book "Affirmations"? Very misleading. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Marie Michaels
