If it wasn't so over the top, maybe I'd appreciate it more,
This review is from: Glynis Has Your Number: Discover What Life Has in Store for You Through the Power of Numerology! (Hardcover)
I have studied gematria and numerology for over a decade. And I must admit, McCants does a good job at explaining in plain English exactly what numerology is and how to use it. But it PAINS me, I mean deep in my gut intenstines knotting pains me, to see such a powerful tool treated like a deck of tarot cards in the hands of an angst ridden teenager. McCants sells the book as if numerology is the ultimate problem solver. All you need to do is figure out your "path" number and you can do anything! Ummm, sorry, no. Numerology is simply a guide, not the super-fix-it McCants pretends it is. Sadly, the good information she does provide is lost in the quick-fix mentality presented through the book. Instead of offering readers a guide through which to further examine their inner selves, McCants encourages readers to use numerology as a problem-solver for external issues. If you are able to pull the facts from the hype, this book can serve as a good starting point for understanding the roll of numbers in our lives. If you don't want to deal with the the over the top hype, pick up a copy of Morris C Goodman's "Modern Numerology." Originally written in 1945, you can get the same information without the hard sell.

obviously this person did not read the book with an open mind. I am a skeptic, and I was changed forever by the wisdom in it.

I think he did read with an open mind, but he wasnt gullible to belive that Numerology is the ultimate problem solver. Mccants presents numerology in this way in the book. Tarot is a great tool for unlocking whats in the subconscious, where things are in your life and where they may be heading, but it dosent solve your problems-its simply a guide, a tool. readers should know this about numerology

Um, actually. I read the book. I have also heard McCants on the radio. I specifically heard her on the radio state that Numerology is a guide. A tool for your life. She never once stated it was going to give you the answer to every question in your life. But it will provide guidance.

I have heard Glynis on the radio and she is quite spiritual, and very much NOT assuming numbers solve everything.What she IS talking about tho is alignment. Which DOES the 'work' before we do the 'other' work. And that is how life works no matter what our viewpoints are, knowing 'numbers' or not. :)
