If you actually use this book and experiment with the exercises, I believe it can have a real impact on your life and help you access an aspect of your own mind.

I've read a fair amount in this genre and this book is one of the best.

Laura Day's work has been extremely important to me. I've exchanged a couple of emails with her over the years, attended a couple of her free workshops in New York City, but don't know her beyond that. Her books on intuition have been of great value to me, so much so that I rushed out to get her new book as soon as it was available and devoured it in one marathon reading session. It did not disappoint. And yet I am a little uncomfortable about posting a review here. Intuition is "woo-hoo" stuff right? I mean, it defies logic and the materialistic mindset a lot of us are raised with. I don't want to come off as gullible.

I am an empiricist, meaning I believe in evidence and science. I was initially attracted to reading Laura Day because a great scientist, James Watson, the co-discovered of DNA, praised her. I tried the exercises in her first book on developing intuition. I was astonished that I could do some of the stuff Ms. Day insists we all can do.

There was a moment after reading Laura Day's first book when my view of what was possible shifted. I wrote the name of an elderly aunt who lived in a distant state and who I had not seen for many years, on a piece of paper, folded it and at lunch gave it to a co-worker. I asked the co-worker to tell me something about the unknown person. I had not discussed my aunt at all at work--I was thinking about her only because I had just heard some bad news about her health. I had always had a distant but okay relationship with her, though I was uncomfortable about how stingy she had always been. Pathologically stingy in my view. That was my one issue with her. I carried some anger about her once, in her stinginess, doing something hurtful to my mother.

I was excited for this book because of Laura Day's popularity. I'm a 22 year old artist. I'm not trying to control the minds of my business associates, as Laura Day generously "explains" how to do. I LOVE honing my intuition and psychic abilities-- that's what I expected and didn't receive from this book. It seems to me that she intends her audience to be completely uneducated in the subject matter, and at the same time, she gives no solid explanation of how to gain/practice the skills she outlines. She just praises what these skills can do for you. It's "lots of chatter, no substance" as another reviewer said. She didn't tell me anything that I didn't already know/ believe. I will definitely be selling my copy. I strongly recommend Sonia Choquette, whose books on psychic abilities have greatly enriched me.

This book covers a full range of intuitive practices: Mediumship, Telepathy, Body Heat Telepathy,Remote Viewing,Precognition, and my favorite chapter: Healing. If you were only going to have one book on developing intuition, I would say This Is It. For two main reasons:
1. the instruction is so thorough, without being overwhelming (this is a blessedly organized teacher/author) that you actually get to practice the skills instead of just reading interesting stuff. Motivating!.
2. the real jewel of the book: you get Day's illuminated thinking process. Her experience as a teacher and focused writer really shows here, she holds the students hand page after page and gives solid, invaluable thinking to approaching intuitive work and life.

Like somebody said: knowing the question to ask is more important the answer. Ultimately this is a life guidebook as well as an intuition tutorial. She really covers the 'what if's' and gets you onto safe ground to know your own system and carry forward on your own, I can't say I have really felt this supported reading ...um...anything!
.
Some of the great stuff in the book:
~A top ten "ways we get in our way" list . My two faves there are: not applying the exercise to real goals in your life, and looking for immediate feedback/validation on the readings you do.
~ Bedtime/Sleep Telepathy: Day points out that we are all getting and receiving messages whether or not we realize it, and addresses it
~the Healing Chapter -it's what you would think plus: how to reclaim lost parts of yourself, bringing harmony to body, life, relationship, or a company

Each skill has an extensive and enlightening list of applications.

Although my skills at using my intuition are already pretty sharp, I felt I could use a boost and bought How to Rule the World from Your Couch, by Laura Day. I was already familiar with Day from another book and a workshop I took several years ago and have always been very impressed with her work.

For those of you not familiar with the concept of intuition, you are in for a treat! When you learn how to act on your intuition, you learn to trust yourself. Living your life using your intuition is both empowering and liberating! Intuition is the "sixth sense."

This book did not disappoint. I enjoy her writing style very much--she's concise, articulate, funny and friendly.

Day begins the book: "How to Rule the World from Your Couch is meant to inspire you to be fully aware, conscious, active, dynamic and alive in every single moment of your life."

She urges the reader to become their own expert...that enough experts can change the world.

Day writes: "Everything you learn in this book will make your decisions better, your relationships stronger, your actions more effective, and your life easier."

I read the book quickly, but not so fast that I missed how wonderful and on the mark it is. Jammed packed with great exercises to improve ones intuition, I will be re-reading it shortly to do the exercises.

I like that the book provides a systematic method to help develop intuition. Anyone following the advice in the book should find it pretty easy to improve one's power of intuition.

Highly recommend!
