Great book! However, this CD audio version is less than helpful because it has no chapter headings! The book itself is a combination of text and meditations. If you are like most people, you listen to this on the commute... how do you find the meditations again later? <sigh!>

Wow was this book a disappointment. I read through the first chapter and started feeling really bad about purchasing it after being mudsucked by all the 5 star reviews. This book was extremely simple minded and filled with pseudoscience analogies about energy and matter. Why do non-technical people have to act like everything they do fits into some sort of common scientific basis? Just talk about what you know and try to avoid using physics, when it's clear that you don't know anything about physics, or science, etc...

Magical thinking has a lot of fans because, it's...well..magical. Imagine what you want and you'll get it. The universe will give It to you because thoughts are atoms and electrons and physical things that can manifest whatever you want if you just think about it. It's quantum science ---- and that's the big lie. It's not science; not even close. It's a fairytale that co-opts science with all it's sciency sounding jargon. It's the stuff cults are made of. It's pure conjured up jibberish that can be placed under the "law of attraction" umbrella most recently popularized by the charlatanistic book, "The Secret". Unfortunately, this is becoming a sort of religion for its gullible adherents. Positive visualization can be beneficial, but the hocus pocus of this book can be dangerous to naive people who are easily duped. People would be better served to learn cognitive behavioral therapy techniques which is scientifically proven to be beneficial.

This book is written with the authors own personal political worldview of even wealth distribution. There is nothing wrong with that except that within the context of this book it violates two principles of the law of attraction:
1. It is a false belief that it is somehow inherently 'wrong' for me to desire wealth for myself.
2. I cannot impose my own will on others.

...it's almost not even a book! It's "reddi-whip!" If you want whipped cream in a can for the mind this is your book. If you want to get what you want start with "The Powermind System" -- it's a compendium of some of the best and most utilized self-help techniques. This Shakti Gawain is for lightweights only.

this book appeals to people without the requisite skills to succeed, and appeals to their wishful thinking.
