I bought the book when it barely came out, being a huge Hawkins reader, (I have read all of his books and plan on attending a lecture in the future) and once again he taught me something new that I never realized before. I actually read the weight loss chapter first before any of the other ones, and it has helped me TREMENDOUSLY!! After doing the weight loss technique, which only took about roughly an hour and a half of work, I've lost an ADDITIONAL 20 pounds and have gone down another pants size! (And I'm still losing weight) The weight loss technique literally got rid of any addiction I had to food. But to be honest, there was a downside, I did feel slightly depressed afterward since I no longer had food as a way to "feel good".
But after that I've gotten to love food more than before! Best of all, I can do it without overeating. Now I eat way less and don't feel controlled by hunger. And this is just the chapter on weight loss! The rest of the book is just as insightful and powerful as his weight loss chapter, particularly his chapter on sexuality, which is almost poetic. He discusses all the illnesses he personally had to overcome, and through simple changes in his belief systems ("We are subject to what we hold in mind"), how he came to heal them.Read more ›

Practical and straight-forward - Thank you Dr. David Hawkins.
The book is easy to read and I suggest that people keep sticky tags handy so they can mark information that is relevant.
The book reminds us of our inherent innocence and how our beliefs are the cause of our experiences & .suggests techniques on how to transcend them.
Very enjoyable & inspiring read.
After reading the chapter on weight loss, I set a goal to lose 10 pounds in 7 days.
I lost 14 pounds in 7 days and I have kept it off.
239 to 225.
He also stresses how much unconcious guilt most people have and how it causes so many of the illnesses that we have. I highly recommend this book for ANY body. I did buy it mainly for the Alcoholism section.
He mostly just touts AA. But in spite of not getting all I may have hoped for on alcoholism specifically it is well worth reading.
