more of the same garbage, November 1, 2007 By Victor Allen "thinking in Idaho" (Idaho Falls, ID United States) - (REAL NAME) Why does Amazon remove all negative reviews of this book. I have reviewed it four times (always with a one star rating) and every time, my review is removed. Likewise, every other one star rating (and there have been a lot of them) are removed. Amazon dishonesty on open display, just like Joe Vitale's.
Dear Samantha, While I appreciate and understand the fact that you extracted NOTHING positive from Joe Vitale's book The Key, and I do respect your right to your opinion.. However don't you think its a bit harsh considering the number of people he does help.
I would invite you and all the other fine people who have posted slanderous comments on the web about the Key to understand that Our "outer" world is merely a reflection of the "inner".
When we start easing up a bit on the judgements and begin to look at things from the more optimistic angle like, what CAN I get out of this book rather than call it a rip-off, I guarantee you that you will get some value for your money.
Gypsy I love the way you handled this post! It makes me sick when I come on here and see all the negative comments that trash authors on here, so very negative!!!! Everyone has the right to make comments about the books they read but to verbally attack the authors???? When did people become so rude???? Whatever happened to posivity? My question is this to the ones who have chosen to trash authors on here, do you know these people personally,did they do something to tick you off , what????? There is enough negativity in this world without finding it on here. Kindness gets you further than being nasty anyday.
Hey everyone! Lighten up! Joe's stuff really works...that is if you get up off your lazy behind and put forth the effort. There is no magic pill. People are broke, fat, lazy and depressed because they want to be otherwise, they would be fit, healthy, rich and fulfilled. You want something? Then go get it! Stay healthy America! www.lessonsinhealth.com Coming soon! Marco in Dallas!
It is one thing to give an honest, open, helpful review of a book and its author. It is totally something else to compare someone to Hitler. Everyone has a right to their opinion but let's try and use the Golden rule here.
Why do people think it is alright to say such harsh things about someone else? Would they like it if it was done to them? I would venture to say no they would not.
Quite frankly these harsh reviews say more about the person leaving them, then who or what they are reviewing. In many cases, those that do such things are unhappy with where they are in their life and jealous of those that have made something of their life. In other cases, people are just mean and vindictive for no other reason that to be mean and vindictive. Either way, that is truly no way to go through life.
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying Joe Vitale is a saint and can do no wrong. I am saying however that we all should take time to really think about what we are saying, writing or posting and how it will not only effect the person it is directed to but what does it say about us.
Hi Casey, We are sorry, we forgive you and we love you! Also Adolf Hitler spread hatred, such as you are doing, Joe Vitale spreads love and positive thinking. Hmmm However, we all know that if a person is not open to the positive way of life you can not make them open, so once again Casey We are sorry, we forgive you and we love you!
Casey, your observations "are worthless and ineffective" because your mindset comes from many years sitting on your shoulders...come out and smell the roses instead of the stench of your backwards thinking...it smells MUCH better...I love you, I'm sorry, please forgive me and thank you for giving me the opportunity to set you straight!
After having studied most of the material put out by those involved with the masters of the secret I realized, they made it all up. While I get the idea that positive thinking is beneficial the models employed by this group are weak at best. There are 2 things that come to mind when adopting these stories. If you adopt this story you live it, and all the parameters involved. The next observation is if you buy into this story it seriously limits your ability to actually think for yourself. So having said that I wouldn't rate it either positive or negative. Its simply a story, a childhood fantasy.
