About the Author
Affectionately called the “father of motivation” by his fans, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer was an internationally renowned author, speaker, and pioneer in the field of self-development. Over the four decades of his career, he wrote more than 40 books (21 of which became New York Times bestsellers), created numerous audio programs and videos, and appeared on thousands of television and radio shows. His books Manifest Your Destiny, Wisdom of the Ages, There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem, and the New York Times bestsellers 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace, The Power of Intention, Inspiration, Change Your Thoughts—Change Your Life, Excuses Begone!, Wishes Fulfilled, and I Can See Clearly Now were all featured as National Public Television specials.
Wayne held a doctorate in educational counseling from Wayne State University, had been an associate professor at St. John’s University in New York, and honored a lifetime commitment to learning and finding the Higher Self. In 2015, he left his body, returning to Infinite Source to embark on his next adventure.

I agree in theory with many of the concepts presented in this book. Yet I found contradictions that didn't make sense. For example, in his 12-step program to simplicity in Chapter 8, step 9 says "Do everything you can to eschew debt" and step 10 says to "Forget about the Cash Value". Not only do these seem contradictory, but they really don't work for most people unless they are largely financially independent.
At the end of each chapter he has a section called "Some Suggestions for Putting the Ideas in this Chapter to Work for You". I found his suggestions to be rather bland and theoretical, without much more practical application than the chapters he applied them to.
I really wanted to love this book but to be honest, I would have to say it is rather generic. He quotes so many others throughout the book, and some of the quotes are great, but he lacks inspiring quotes of his own (no pun intended).
I try to finish any book I start but found myself eager to get through with this one. It just didn't have that special something that would make it unique and great. It seemed mostly to be a recital of the author's lifestyle, preferences, good deeds and celebrity connections. In addition, I found the tone of writing to be a bit condescending.
This book is good but not special. The parts I enjoyed most were the numerous quotes from other authors or thinkers, not the words of the author himself.
Much more inspiring, I believe, are Conversations With God : An Uncommon Dialogue (Book 2),Happier Than God: Turn Ordinary Life into an Extraordinary Experience or The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment.
I listen to it in the car all the time and the more I listen the more I get
out of it.
I highly recommend it to anyone that needs to understand the value of life,
get out of the rut of the negative world we sometimes live in and truly
Little bummed the second disc has to be inserted a couple times to play, but once it
does read it is fine. I thought it was my player but it has no problem with other
disc's so probably just this cd has a blurb in it? Didn't want to deal with return
and wait for a new one so just dealing with it. This is the one problem you have
when buying on line.
My life has totally changed for the better, once I realized it is all what you have inside that determines happiness. All of Wayne Dyers books have helped me see that. Amazons "used" books option is a wonderful way to fill my library at less cost-and these books are all in great condition!
I work at a day treatment program for ajudicated youth in Detroit and I couldn't wait to play the section of the cd when Dr. Dyer talked about his family struggles while his mother maintained unwavering inner-peace of which inspired him to have no justification to give and share the lessons of her unselfish heart.
Just the thought of this cd brings a smile to my face and a flood of happiness throught my body.
