One thing that most books like this (I dislike putting things into categories but I will go ahead and say it anyway--'new agey') disappoint me in is that by their very intention of putting such information into factual little boxes they contradict the true nature of such information, which is fluidity and self-discovery. I guess, in other words, by trying to look directly at the star it fades from sight
for example, phrases like "work with yourself to develop playfulness"
maybe it's just me, but i experience these types of sayings as contraindications. Nevertheless, a book that tries to say what can't be said (which 99.99 percent of self-help books do) will by their nature be full of paradoxes. So is it fair to judge this book only against other books, or against what I would wish to read?
That said, I suppose it will depend on the reader
--So, I had originally given this book a 3 star rating, but upon reflection this seems a bit unfair, because in the category of books that it falls into it should probably be a 4 to a 5. I think I have just been expecting something that is unlikely to come along, which is probably a book written by someone like-minded. Anyway, looking at it as something written for people who are just getting introduced to these ideas, it is actually a fabulous book, because she is a very sensitive writer who is good with clarity. Her passion and wisdom on the subject shine through, and she is neither imposing nor boring on anything. I had originally thought it deserved a lower rating because every now and then one of the ideas she presents has flawed or incomplete reasoning behind it, but hey, what book doesn't nowadays? I guess it's just up to the reader to do proper research.
However, recipes were unclear with their instructions and do not necessarily take into account the "novice cooks" abilities. It is easier the second time around; however, other recipe books I have tried are a lot clearer to have you get it the first time. Additionally, the ingredients are hard to substitute (if you have a deadly food allergy like I do, there are a lot of recipes that have nuts in them. But what do I know. I might have a weak solar plexus). Also, recipe measurements use 1/8th of a cup instead of TBSPs which is more likely what I would use.
For how little I use the book I probably would not buy it but get it from a rental source such as a library instead.
I feel badly for my 2 star review and am upping it to 4. The print is small for my liking but that shouldn't be a reason for 2 stars. If you are interested in chakra's then this is a cool book to review- in regards to how one eats. Is there even anything else on the market that touches on this subject? For that alone this is something to be read and reviewed. My apologies to the author, for the initial low review.
simply - reading this book will definitely change your approach to the "process of eating" itself...it will change your opinion about the food completely....you will finally understand, that food is something, that is not just the way, how to receive the energy, but also one of the ways, how to HEAL yourself.....
YOU REALLY NEED TO HAVE THIS BOOK IN YOUR LIBRARY!!!!!!:):):):):):)
