I read the whole thing, and the last chapter (which is now freshest in memory) was especially objectionable. It was on Forgiveness. He starts by harping on the usual stuff: you shouldn't judge others even when they wrong you, the very idea of forgiveness involves judgment by supposing there is something to forgive, you need to "take responsibility" instead of blaming others, if you hold on to anger it only hurts yourself and not the person you blame, blah blah blah. He REALLY harps on it, going on for pages saying the same thing in different words over and over. (Actually the entire book is like that.)
He says you shouldn't sue anyone, apparently implying that if, for example, a doctor practices negligently and causes you a lifelong costly injury, you should NOT seek compensation from the doctor's insurance to pay the medical bills you'll have for the rest of your life, and instead you should "take responsibility." He later reveals he was once sued and it made him angry, so I can't help thinking his advice about the evils of lawsuits is a bit biased. Try telling it to someone who NEEDS to be "made whole" (to use legal terminology) to get through the rest of their life.
And try telling the child victim of rape that the rape needed to happen and everything is as it should be and they need to examine who they may have caused this traumatic event.
And keep saying over and over why it's important to forgive for one's own health. Yeah, we know. Tell us HOW. It's not easy, you know. After pages and pages of lectures on why you shouldn't blame others for anything, he barely even acknowledges the importance of knowing HOW to forgive.
And the entire time I was reading his chapter on not blaming and judging others, I couldn't help thinking of an anecdote from earlier in the book about how he blamed a lawn care worker for not being able and willing to answer his questions about the business's services, and deciding not to hire them because of this one employee's attitude. The guy probably just didn't know what to tell him and wanted to get on with his work, and it was clear he thought Wayne could contact the business's office for the information he needed. He didn't seem particularly rude -- curt maybe, but not hostile certainly. The moral of the story was the employee's attitude was bad for business but the telling reeked of judgment toward the employee. You know what Wayne could have done to show that he was nonjudgmental? He could have hired the landscaping company anyway. But he didn't, apparently seeking to punish them for having an employee who was unable or unwilling to take time out from his work to give a sales pitch to a stranger on the sidewalk.
Aside from issues of judgment and forgiveness, I found the book on the whole boring, repetitive, and really lacking in much that would be useful or insightful to someone who isn't new to the sort of "new-age" philosophy that Wayne and people like him tend to espouse. It was more like a primer. I was looking for more substance and guidance on how to put manifestation into practice. What I got was a small handful of platitudes and a lot of fluff written around them to expand the book to a few hundred pages.
One more thing. I can't not say this. I found it obnoxious when he referred to wet dreams as "the dance of life." Last time I checked, creating life requires a female.
