In the book The Untethered Soul, Michael A. Singer takes you step-by-step through the process of Gyana, the yoga of the Intellect, to the Source. Moreover, he does it with elegant simplicity. Read this book carefully, and you will get more than a glimpse of eternity.”
Deepak Chopra, author of Life After Death: The Burden of Proof
In lucid, unadorned prose, Michael A. Singer delivers the essence of the great spiritual teachings of the Ages. Each chapter of The Untethered Soul is an instructive meditation on the binds of the human condition and how each and every knot can be gracefully untied so that our souls may fly. The accuracy and simplicity of this work is a measure of its pure mastery.”
James O’Dea, past president of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS)
Jean Houston, philosopher, psychologist, and author of A Mythic Life and Passion for the Possible
Deep spirituality is within your reach in this book. In it you will find the mirror to see your unconditional, holy self. If you look for practical spirituality not encumbered by credo and ritual, read this book.”
Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, coauthor of Jewish with Feeling and From Age-ing to Sage-ing
Michael A. Singer has opened my mind to an entirely new dimension of thought. Through The Untethered Soul, I have been challenged both psychologically and intellectually in a new and exciting way. It may take more than one reading and many hours of introspection, but The Untethered Soul is a must-read for anyone in search of greater understanding of themselves and of the truth.”
Louis Chiavacci, senior vice-president of Merrill Lynch, ranked in Barron’s top fifteen US Investment Advisors
Fr. Paul Wierichs, CP, director of the Passionist Monastery and Spiritual Center of Our Lady of Florida
The Untethered Soul is a brilliant treatment of the path of spiritual consciousness. It is clearly and powerfully written. Michael A. Singer provides a firm step for those on a spiritual journey.”
Abdul Aziz Said, professor of peace studies and chair of Islamic Peace at American University
This publication has released boundless joy for the hungry souls of the world.”
Ma Yoga Shakti Saraswati, founder of Yogashakti International Mission and recipient of Hinduism Today’s Hindu of the Year 2000 award
“East is East and West is West, but Michael A. Singer bridges these two great traditions in a radiant treatise on how to succeed in life from our spiritual quest to our everyday tribulations. Freud said that life was composed of love and work. With great eloquence, wit, and compelling logic, Singer’s brilliant book completes this thought by showing them to be two poles of the same selfless devotion.”
—Ray Kurzweil, National Medal of Technology recipient and author of The Singularity Is Near
“This is a seminal book that quite frankly is in a class by itself. In a simple, yet paradoxically profound way, Michael A. Singer takes the reader on a journey that begins with consciousness tethered to the ego and ends having taken us beyond our myopic, contained self-image to a state of inner freedom and liberation. Michael A. Singer’s book is a priceless gift to all who have futilely searched and yearned for a richer, more meaningful, creative life.”
—Yogi Amrit Desai, internationally recognized pioneer of modern yoga

Unfortunately, everything after that is similar to explaining what a shadow looks like to a blind person. He will tell you about some pretty amazing stuff but he won't tell you how to get there. You should buy his book, it will give you one of the best explanations as to why you should meditate, but it won't tell you how to meditate or attain it's benefits.
I would recommend reading Mindfulness in plain English after reading this book. It will give you basic instructions on what to do next. As a warning though, it has some brief supernatural references, please just ignore them if they offend you, it really does contain a great instruction on how to meditate and loose the bonds that shackle you to anger, anxiety, depression and whatever else you are suffering from. Best of all.....You will do it by yourself.
Most human beings are completely unaware that most of the thoughts in our mind are complete untrue. YET, we believe them, follow them, become emotionally entangled in them, allow them to change our mood, allow them to change our behavior.
This book was also freeing in the sense that I let go of needing others to behave in a certain way in order for me to be OK. The reason I was't OK had nothing to do with anyone outside myself. It was a miraculous shift within me (to say the very least), when I realized I was trying to manipulate outside circumstances for me to feel OK in life.
When I realized the shift needed to be made within ME for me to be OK in life, total game changer! I let everyone off the hook and stepped into unconditional peace and unconditional joy! Have you ANY idea what life is like when your own peace/joy is totally UNCONDITIONAL? It means you don't need anyone to change or be different for you to be happy. It means no-one outside yourself controls how you FEEL. It means you're no longer an emotional puppet on the string of everyone else's behavior, attitudes, decisions, choices, etc. YOU feel inner joy/peace no matter what. Hello?! Total game changer!
I LOVED the audio version of the book because the person who read it was perfect for the content. Not to mention the ability to hit replay a million times on the parts that were SO transformative.
This was a unique book. I've read TONS of other books on similar topics but the way Michael conveyed the material was unique and different and I really GOT IT! Thank you Michael Singer for the growth, expansion, and transformations you inspired within my very soul. My soul now largely "untethered" from the constant (and mostly irrelevant) chatter of the mind. :) I am a new person as a result of this book (and a few other audios I purchased from Michael's website which expanded upon what he taught in the book).

This is a great book and comes close to touching other teachings from great people, there is no science here, just a path which I believe is the way and only way to follow, you can try many other things, medication etc and keep searching for that cure, but the cure is to stop searching! listen to what Michael says and you will see a difference.
Be patient, it will take time, weeks, months, years but you will all of a sudden find yourself in a powerful place of positivity and confidence.
As an avid spiritual learner I bought this from recommendation from my Dad and couldn't put it down. It incapsulates the way we should live our life perfectly, logically and with such ease.
I often find when I read books of this genre it initially sticks in my head but then fades with time, but there is something about Michael Stingers words that really resonates in my mind like magical words to refer to.
He goes through the journey of battling with ones inner dialogue, transcending to the power of energy and cultivating these skills to refine yourself and realising how simple life can be.
With these skills you can finally free yourself of your mind.
"You are the passenger of your body"
Thank you for writing this beautiful book. I've read it three times now. :)
As someone who has to manage my anxiety constantly, I have found this a godsend. It's just a very simple message that I want to burn into my brain - it's a textbook really. I will be reading it over and over again till the knowledge is close to my heart.
I've been reading self help books for over ten years now, all written by widely acclaimed authors, for me this one tops the lot.
What I really love is it's written in a way that brings out knowledge that I can dare to believe I already knew, a knowledge we are probably all born with, but have forgotten because of our childhoods, upbringing, piers, educational and religious re-wiring, mass media circus, setbacks, traumas, let downs etc.
This book reminds me why we are really here, it helps me to get back on the path of life, a truer more meaningful brighter life.
Life is all about perception, and this book helps me to realise that more and more.
I've ordered copies for my yoga teachers, family, friends and I've started reading it again:-))
Pace & Length: 3/5
Overall Rating: 4/5
This is not a novel but a story of you; a story of who you actually are, and how to find yourself. If you've ever questioned 'who am I' or given a thought to 'Know thyself' - This is a must read as it will open perspectives you may have either never come across or never thought of. The book is not meant to be rushed through like a novel but to be savored slowly, digesting the concepts and perspectives presented to you and practicing them in your daily life at work, home and in relationships.
Although the book has a good number of analogies and great content, there are places you tend to fall asleep or lose a little interest for the repetitive nature of the concepts, making the pace of the book somewhat slow.
By the end of the book, one understands his/her feelings, emotions, pains, happiness, etc. better and one feels more confident dealing with life, with yourself, with others around you, with the world, the sun, the moon, and the stars. Spiritual or not, this discourse will provide you with lots of concepts to think about along with practical examples; you have a lifetime to practice!
This is not a book for advanced spiritualists however I’d like me you’ve always found this a bit new-age / hippy, this book actually makes a huge amount of sense and I can feel that I have benefitted.
I spent most of the book thinking “but I’m already pretty good at doing that” and at times it felt a little repetitive but the last few chapters really helped tie it all together and pack a punch and I really felt rewarded for reading it. I want to leave it a few months and read it again as a refresher - I think that you’ll get more from a second or maybe even third read.
The writing style is natural and easy going. A little American at times but not too badly. Religion or belief in god is not required to benefit from this book. Religion is acknowledged but the writing here is excellent at neither mandating nor denying any belief so no one will be offended.
I’ve loaned my copy to a friend and bought another as a gift.
