Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In a style reminiscent to Conversations with God, Gaulden, founder and director of the Sedona Intensive, offers spiritual guidance in this revised version of his 2006 book. The material is familiar, from "love being the answer" to communications with the "High Self" that lives in each of us (Gaulden's High Self is named Paul). The author maintains reader interest with gratifying anecdotes and a progressive structure (eight chapters from "Converting the Ego" to "The Love Chapter") that make a full-circle journey of loving, recovering and revering the self. Gaulden takes some odd directions (proposing that we are all essentially both man and woman, sharing a letter asking forgiveness from his deceased mother) that, rather than seeming gratuitous, complement the larger theme of finding one's true identity. Though heavily steeped in recovery vernacular, Gaulden is a witty and appealing guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! January 6, 2009
Format:Hardcover
I received this book as a Christmas gift and being a pragmatic, black or white type of individual, I was a bit suspicious of the giver's intention. This book seemed the antithesis of what I would want to spend my time reading. I put the book aside in my `when I get around to it pile'. Surprisingly I got around to it very quickly when I was battling a very aggressive cold and could not tolerate one more moment of daytime TV. I have to admit I was intrigued after the first few pages, and by the third chapter, I was hooked. This book is truly enlightening and what I appreciated the most was the lack of sugarcoated touchy-feely nonsense that most books of this type profess. This book has substance and an attitude. I finally understand that I have the power to make friends with my ego instead of letting my ego run my life how it sees fit. This book has perpetuity and I have already re-read and marked passages in it - something I have never done in any book. I knew I was an Albert Clayton Gaulden convert when I started spouting a passage or two on regaining our internal footing and personal power to a friend. The best part is that there were no pronounced eye rolls from her - she listened! I would recommend giving this book a space on the top of your `must read' pile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Self-Improvement January 2, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Albert Clayton Gaulden is widely known for the Sedona Intensive program where he helps people take a good, hard look at themselves and change those behaviors that distract them from living the lives they imagine. Now in his third book, You're Not Who You Think You Are, Albert takes readers on a journey to uncover their true selves. Part memoir, part self-help guide, Albert's newest book inspires us to look at ourselves in an honest way and gives us clear steps on how to find true purpose in our lives. After reading Chopra, Dyer, Ford, Katie and all of the the other spiritual teachers for so many years, I am thrilled to find an author who challenges me to wake up and get real with myself.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not glowing December 19, 2009
Format:Hardcover
How to understand all these glowing reviews? Unless its the first self-help book these reviewers have ever read, or they are friends with the author. I found the book tedious beyond belief. For someone who's supposedly shed his ego, it's all about him, down to name-dropping and reprinting thank-you notes he's gotten. His view of karma is not very far from that of Original Sin, and his view of humankind (without his intervention) dim. I bet if you added up positive words versus negative words, you'd find the book reeks of negativity. At least with the Abraham-Hicks philosophy, change can happen without getting down on ourselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Taking The Gloves Off December 14, 2008
Format:Hardcover
It's about time the gloves come off--and this book gently but firmly removes them as well as the sunglasses. You're Not Who You Think You Are was a "sit down and read it all in one go" book--once I started, I had to read on. Through personal anecdotes and Gaulden's inner and outer guidance we are urged to give ourselves a long, hard look--now! What do we see and is that really who we are? What is standing in our way to the peace and love and acceptance and joy we all want to experience? Love and service are the ways in which we change Karmic debt. When the blaming and naming stop, when we see the Ego and our struggles and stubborness for what they really are--roadblocks to all that we truly want--what is there? Us as we really are and a fabulous chance to see through the veils of illusion and truly know our God nature. This couldn't be more timely reading. Gaulden is Golden. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars TIRED OF PRETENDING TO BE SOMEONE YOU'RE NOT? December 12, 2008
Format:Hardcover
With honesty and compassion, Albert Gaulden has shared with us the key to the mystery of personal enlightenment. You're Not Who You Think You Are is a powerful guide for cleaning up and reconstructing one's life. In this book, you will discover who you really are, why you have been pretending to be someone you are not, how to be who you really are and stay the course as your authentic self. By sharing his own personal journey, Albert encourages us to go within to find the answers to all of our questions and solve the problems that we face. As a grateful graduate of The Sedona Intensive, I can testify to Albert's own authenticity. He is an extraordinary teacher with great insight into the human condition. Albert is probably one of few who practices what he preaches and loves what he practices. What a gift!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finding yourself - cutting to the chase December 22, 2008
Format:Hardcover
Albert Gaulden's newest book, You Are Not Who You Think You Are, is a breath of fresh air in the crowded spiritual self-help market. His no nonsense approach to teaching us how to corral our trouble-making ego is practical and exceptionally useful in combatting debilitating addictions and overcoming destructive behaviors and obsessions. By sharing gritty details of his own past addictions, readers readily relate to Albert and this compelling book. Included is a functional roadmap to battle your own demons enabling you to peel away layers of old, embedded behaviors and emerge as the person you were always meant to be. This book is bound to become a self-help classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening reading, sure to inspire and motivate March 13, 2009

One's true self is usually buried under piles of masks and falsehoods to make oneself more appealing to society as a whole. "You're Not Who You Think You Are: A Breakthrough Guide to Discovering the Authentic You" is a guide to breaking through the falsehoods so one may best understand who they truly are. Spiritual and poignant, "You're Not Who You Think You Are" says the best path to peace is total honesty with oneself, and to stop lying to the world and therefore lying to the self. "You're Not Who You Think You Are" is enlightening reading, sure to inspire and motivate.
