The point of the book is to find ways to experience God. In particular to see where God is working, and to be involved in His work. Overall, I thought that the principles that Blackaby presents for doing this are pretty solid. Nothing comes to mind that made me really wary when came down to his basic principles of how to experience God.
There were two things that I did dislike about the book though. First, it suffers from appearing to be a bit prideful. I don't know Henry Blackaby so I have no idea what he is really like, but the writing style of the book just smacks of arrogance sometimes. Even in trying to be humble at one point he says that God had to look high and low for someone as ordinary as me. Not to mention constantly referring to some conference where he tells how somebody's life was changed by reading his book. Not that it isn't good to have testimonials, but the frequency of such examples, with few examples that don't involve the book or Blackaby himself, started to rub me the wrong way.
The second problem I had with the book, was that it gave a lopsided view of how God may speak to you. Many of Blackaby's examples are amazing. It is about how he and his wife were called to Canada to pastor a small church and all the amazing things that were done there or how people were called to serve God in amazing circumstances and amazing outcomes. These examples naturally led me to ask is this how God speaks to everybody? What about God speaking to people in the everyday, in our communities, in things that are not "full-time ministry." I think there has to be balance here; we need to be challenged that we are not just settling for the comfort we have where we are, but I do not believe that God calls everyone the same way. We are not all meant to be Paul or Moses at least in terms of our accomplishments. So while I thought it was solid on its principles, the tone of the book and the examples it gave slightly diminished its value in my eyes.
There are two major methods Christians serve God: (1) Wait on the Lord for confirmation, then proceed or (2) proceed, asking God to stop you if it is not His will (a.k.a. asking God to bless your plans). Many have made the mistake of using method #2, whether on their own initiative or bad advice from others. Others have been blessed by using method #1. I have experienced both and realize the need to seek out God's will by watching to see what God is doing around me. Henry Blackaby does a good job of breaking it down to 7 principals or steps.
This book is good for many types of readers. You can read only one chapter, all the chapters or some number in between. You can skim parts of however many chapters you want. Many good insights in this book. Sometimes God does call you to do something outside of your primary gifts.
May the Lord bless you as you grow in knowing and doing the will of God.

It is not filled with religious dogma, and even though it is written by Christian ministers and references biblical christian theology, it should appeal to all who are curious about discovering and pursuing God's guidance for their lives.
