This is the Gregg Braden I've Come to Know and Love (through his writing),
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Turning Point: Creating Resilience in a Time of Extremes (Kindle Edition)
I couldn't get into Fractal Time (and his other book written since FT). Even though this book touches upon some of FT book's concepts, this book is vastly different. The Turning Point is a marker in time that is more personal in nature. I love it when Gregg incorporates his personal stories to illustrate points, and this book does just that. Turning Point: Resilience in a Time of Extremes is a comfort manual full of practical wisdom. It's a life-changing survival guide. This guide teaches us (or reinforces) the art of critical thinking by asking questions. It also offers us techniques to get us in a better state of heart coherence to those familiar with Heartmath.
This book could be scary for some - those stuck in past, reminiscing on how things used to be. This book can be slightly jarring. The world has changed, and there is no turning back. This book is a wakeup call. Yet, as scary as that message is, Gregg Braden offers hope, a silver lining.
I've had the opportunity to meet Mr. Braden and he's very authentic, someone you genuinely want to know more about, to soak in his wisdom.
***Note: the book gets a little repetitive from his previous works and a lot of 2012 literature, but it's definitely worth sticking it out.

Thanks for your review. You say this work is a little repetitive, which is true if you have read his other works. But what about someone like me who is just now coming to Gregg Braden? Can I start here with "Turning Point", and skip "Deep Truth" and "Divine Matrix"? Or do you recommend, starting from his early works first?

I think it should be okay (from going off of memory of the book; it's been at least ten books ago). Just glancing briefly at your review history, you should understand his concepts. Although, some of them could be a little far out there for someone with a traditional science background (although I might be confusing this with "Fractal Time").
Anyway, I skipped Deep Truth myself. I enjoyed "Divine Matrix". Off the top of my head, I don't remember any science in that one, but I could be wrong (that was years ago), but I'm not a science person and thoroughly enjoyed it. I tend to just speed read through any science. With Amazon you can "try it for free for seven days" for Kindle books, and return within 30 days for physical books. Happy reading!
