Maybe, maybe not

If you can't do the test "properly," then you won't know whether it's working. How do you know if you are skewing the results? You don't. If you were to get the chance to "test your thymus" with the author, then maybe you could find out. I'm left wondering if his idea is bogus or whether my test subject and I were just doing it wrong.
The author tells way too many stories. There is less substance and more "Look, I'm telling you it worked for these people. Just listen to these stories, and you'll see." Only, I don't take testimonials as anything more than hearsay. I'll believe it if it works for me.
If you're not a bible lover, then you might be offended by this book. The author quotes scriptures throughout the book. (See page 34 for an example.) Cherry picking at its finest. He seems to insult the Egyptians also, despite that the Christians borrowed from the Egyptians who borrowed from the Pagans.
I read the first 3 chapters then gave up on the book, as it seemed to require my 'faith' in his procedures since I couldn't tell if I was doing it right or wrong.
The one thing I did take away from the book is that emotions affect health. I didn't really need a book to tell me that, but it helped to hear it from someone else. He relates heart diseases with anger. Lots of anger translates to heart attacks. That seems to make sense. If anyone knows someone with heart trouble who doesn't have anger problems, that would be interesting to hear.
