The story of the Cube is a very interesting mental exercise. For that, I rate it 5 stars. As for the book, I rate it only 2 stars. Too much fluff on the part of the authors. The exercise presented to you by the story of the Cube is for your interpretation and benefit.

Now for a little "secret" not found in the book. You don't need the book! The story of the Cube and related information can be found several places on the web for free.

P.S. I did buy the book first only to find out I didn't need all of the authors' commentary.

Format: Paperback
You know those stupid psychological tests/games that you get via e-mail? arent those so stupid? and totally inaccurate? Well the CUBE was so frighteningly dead-on and intelligently deep that it puts all those to shame. You can psychoanalyze yourself in 5 questions that are really fun--or you can take a 200-question-long Kinsey Personality Test. Which is more sociable and enjoyable? I highly recommend this book as an ice-breaker and slumber parties and "bonding" activities of that sort. The only problem IMHO is that once you've played the Cube, that's it. Fini. The End. It's a one-time-use-only thing. It's of no logic to take a personality test twice unless you're schizophrenic. I found the book very entertaining and amazingly accurate on the first read, but after that it's useless. Buy this book if you have LOTS of friends, because no one can play it twice. (well you can play it twice but it's not fun the 2nd time; it's just completely redundant). Right now it's collecting dust so I am going to give it to my younger sister, who will have screaming fun with her sorority sisters over it. But again, once they've played the "Cube", no more. Just read it once and pass it on.

Format: Paperback
You know those movies that you can't really describe to a friend without giving the whole story away? Well this book is sort of like that. But here's my attempt at a "no spoiler" review.
The Cube is a little visualization/meditation "game" that you can play by yourself or with any other number of people. It only takes a minute or two to play, and once you learn it you can play it with others without referring to the book. The book has quite a few pages, but that's mostly because it's written rather poetically, with only a paragraph or so on each page. It's divided into 5 main sections: an introduction, the "game" (this part is widely spaced over about 15 pages), reflections on the game (this makes up the bulk of the book, and helps you interpret your results of the game), some interviews from a wide range of celebrities who played the game, and an appendix that can optionally help you along in your discovery.
I suggest giving yourself at least a half hour alone to play the game and start reading the main section. When you're done, sit down with your close friends, s.o., or family and play it. You're guarenteed to learn something about each other. Despite the fact that "you can only play it once", I still think the book is worth buying, and I flip through it on occasion.

It seems superfulous to add another glowing review tothe others that have already been written. The Cube was amazing. I suggest playing it by yourself rather than in a group. What you find out might upset your friends. Thats as much as a will give away. I have been desperate to find another self-discovery book that was as accurate but ot no avail. The Kology books were a big dissapoinment when compared to the accuracy of the Cube. There is absolutely nothing like it. I wish I could forget the secrets and play again to find how my perceptions have changed, but once you know the secret that it. So, don't give into the temptation to read ahead in the book!

Well, this is a fun game to play with friends and such, but there's not much to it once you finish the main "exercise." One of my friends said "This is like one of those quizzes you get on email," and I have to agree. Still, I won't give the "big secret" away...this would probably make a great gift for a teen or just a good friend, and there are worse ways to spend the money.

If you enjoy self-discovery, but don't take yourself too seriously, then you would like this book. I've been playing "The Cube" with people for the past several years.Of probably more than a hundred people, only four people didn't like the game. This book can just be a lot of fun, or you can really get a lot of great truths from it.
This is great for getting to know people or just having fun. I've used it for small parties, campfire conversation, and first dates. Kids can even play it. I can't go into more detail without giving it away, but it is worth more than the jacket price. I've enjoyed this book so much that I have given them as Christmas presents several times.

I loved The Cube not only because it helped me understand myself a bit more, but because it pushed me to take an active part in interpreting the results. Though lots of aids and examples are given to help you make sense of your results, you really are encouraged to decide what they mean to you.

This helped my husband and I think a lot about where we are in our marriage and in relation to each other. It's a wonderful book and I look forward to cubing my friends and coworkers! :)
