This review is from: The Shadow Effect: Illuminating the Hidden Power of Your True Self (Kindle Edition)
I loved this book. It was very interesting to read between the three authors, who all are saying the same thing, yet you can choose which speaks to you personally. It's a great jumping off point to realizing that we are all flawed but there is hope. Carl Jung first gave the Shadow a name, and as Deepak Chopra points out, the Shadow is something we all share not only individually, but with each other as if there is a giant pool we're all swimming, and sometimes drowning in together.

Certainly this book doesn't give a lot of in-depth solutions. Our Shadow is too complicated to fix in just the short space each author is given in this book, but it's easy to see what speaks to us and to research further where we want to go from here.

The point of this book is to show us that our fears, and insecurities are shared and that there is a concrete reason for those fears. Pointing out the Shadow starts us to looking into why we mess up our lives with such regularity, and can be the beginning of our search for freedom. Not that it's not our fault that we make bad choices, but that there is a way to change things, that there's a way towards the light if we can just look at ourselves without illusion.

This book can mean the difference between living the life you want, and continuing to play the old-worn out tapes of the past that sabotage our happiness and from living the life we chose for ourselves. I believe that Shadow-work is so important and this is the kind of book that can set us on the way towards the life we really want to live.
