(the version I'm reviewing here is read by the author,
who doesn't have a professional speaking voice).
The content is good.
I especially like the way to "allow it," by reducing doubt
by prefacing your affirmations with "I'm in the processing of..." or "I've decided to..."
There's no science in here whatsoever.
50 or a hundred years ago you could put the word "science" in your title and get away with it,
and just talk about case studies, remarkable anecdotes, and people you know who've tried something.
Nowadays science isn't such a cheap word. It means controlled studies (which you COULD conduct on the LoA...
but there's a miraculous dearth of any studies on the LoA even though we've known about it since the early 1900's, as the author says).
And no, NLP is not a science. It's considered by scientists, even social scientists, to be pseudoscience.
It has all the hallmarks of pseudoscience, and it has been studied many times, for 4 decades, and has been found
ineffective or less effective than other therapies.
Another reason it doesn't get 4 stars, but only 3, is that I'm fairly certain the author
has paid people on Fiverr.com to post 5 star reviews for his book on Amazon.
If you go to other sites, his book is not reviewed this highly.
And most of the 5 star reviews are written by "one-review accounts."
For fairness, I SHOULD rate this book one star just to cancel out
one of the fake reviews.
I wanted to love it.
I finished the book in under fifteen minutes because of all the useless fluff. The writer uses almost every trick in the book to stretch it out: strange type-sets, oversized diagrams with minimal information, random page breaks, noncontributory worksheets, and pages of self-lauditory praises.
This whole book can be summed up in three points:
1. Figure out what you want.
2. Focus on it.
3. Allow it to happen.
I wouldn't be so bitter if there was substance--there wasn't.
Instead, the book prevents dangerous pseudoscience--ideas like "don't figure out things, allow the law of attraction to solve it for you." "Allow your friend to pay your tab so that you can increase in abundance."
No insight. No life-changing anything. Just another excuse to kill trees. Oh, and if you look closely on page 5, he acknowledges that he's ripping off of Jerry and Esther Hicks.
Instead, I'd recommend Dale Carnegie's classic "How to win friends and influence people." It's vastly better in all respects.
You're welcome to disagree with me. However, I recommend that you borrow both this book and Carnegie's from the library before buying. I almost guarantee that you'll keep Carnegie's.
ps. I usually keep my books, but I'll be selling this one right away.
