More About the Author

Iris Lynch was born and raised in Brooklyn, N. Y. Now, nearly 80 years young, she maneuvered through those decades, raising children, engaging in a variety of careers and businesses, which included self employment as a Marriage and Family Counselor in Scottsdale, AZ.

Most of all, Iris observed people. In every job, every encounter, every friendship, she observed and learned about people and their little peculiarities, but best of all, how they achieved happiness. She read and learned and realized that individuals who relied on themselves, physically, psychologically and intuitively, were overall a well adjusted group. They were happier than most and seemed to be better spirited in most every way possible. Iris recognized these folks as Power Over Self people. She started research trying to locate more information about these individuals and their resonance in our world and was surprised to find that any book on self power simply did not exist. Power books were all about how to usurp the power of other individuals.

Finally, Iris put together the book The Miracle of Self Power. In it, you will learn how to better understand your own self and others better than ever before..and it is a fun and interesting read.

This is one of the few books that a person could ever actually consider life changing. This book has helped me to discover just who I am and what things really are important in a persons life. I have a much more positive and definitely a new and self em-powered out look on life. It it common knowledge that you can't change another person or force them to see things your way.... the concepts in this book have had a pro-found effect on my outlook towards others in every facet of my life. This is not one of those "self help" type books; this is an easy to understand concept that promotes self awareness and examination that leads one to discover what is truly important in life.
This book should be required reading in every school - this is what the so called 'smart people' don't want you to know about yourself.

My Dear Avid Reader, I am commenting on your review because you sound like you want answers and I may have some for you.
[1] To answer your query statement and I quote, "'The very first two words on the dedication page made mt [oops! mt is not in the English dictionary] eye twitch due to the lack of the space bar between 'I' and 'dedicate.'" [Sorry, have to comment on this first: quotation marks go outside the period not on the inside of the period as you have demonstrated in your review. That is the rule; it might even be Rule #1 in the old book of proper (and, you do like proper) English when using quotation marks with punctuation marks.] Okay, back to the space issue that concerns you. There is absolutely no way a space "bar" would make a sentence correct: the space "bar" is used to make spaces and cannot show up in the middle of a sentence where you suggest.] To continue with your question: "Really? How do you miss that on the FIRST sentence?" [Please note placement of the quotation mark with punctuation mark.] The answer to your question is this: The reason the spacing in this entire book is, what we might call erratic is because when the print style of choice is to use the block-style formatting, sometimes a wider space is required in order to stretch the sentence across the page to make it fit the block-style format. If, however, the print style was not in block-style format, then the spacing would automatically and naturally fall into its correct place and in the format you are comfortable with viewing. I do hope this is clear to you because you obviously needed to have an answer to this incorrect error you found, which was also an incorrect observation.

The Miracle of Self Power by Iris Lynch is a book long overdue. The author explains the desire in many of us to have Power Over Others (POO) rather than being satisfied with Power Over Self (POS). She describes a variety of real life situations that demonstrate what she calls the "Victim-Rescuer-Persecutor cycle" and how in following this cycle many people immerse themselves in psychological games. Ms. Lynch holds that "Happiness is knowing that you don't need to play."

Ms. Lynch encourages parents to stress, promote and strengthen self-reliance in children and to help them develop their power within. "Give children a way to exercise self-power." This is not to say that parents don't guide and discipline their children when appropriate. It has more to do with our responses to children and our approach to showing them that they have choices that can make them more self-reliant. For example, instead of complaining about the 7 year old throwing his dirty clothes on the floor (and picking up after him), the mother can wait until he asks why he doesn't have clean clothes. The parent can then indicate that the dirty clothes weren't where they should have been and ask the child what he is going to do about that.

The book emphasizes that life is about choices. We can choose to become victims or we can free ourselves from this mentality. As common sense as this seems, the book helps to make us aware of our habit of POO and encourages us to control our own feelings; to learn, grow and become stronger through our experiences and to choose POS while eschewing POO.

Don't stop at a single reading of this book. When you go back and read it again, you will gain additional valuable insights.

A friend told me about this book and I bought it, got it a few days ago and I am blown away. I have never heard self power presented in a clear and understandable way that provides the reader the ability to apply it in their life immediately and feel empowered. Appling what I've learned and seeing results is addictive and life changing for me. I am very pleased with my new found study and I would recommend this book to everyone.

By the way, "Avid reader" who wrote the review titling it "The miracle of POO" has an obvious insecurity indicating a massive lack of self power. I would suggest this individual really needs to read the WHOLE book! This person has a personal vendetta against the Author or is offended by it's content. In their own words "I guess I should read the whole book, and give it a real review" Sums it up!
