I rec'd this book for review an embarrassingly long time ago. I've struggled with what to write because I really, really wanted to like this book....but it just didn't resonate. I thought that maybe if I put it down for a bit, and then started again, that I'd be able to warm up to it. Nope.
What I loved: sadly, nothing. :(
What I left: I found Michael's writing style to be a little too "sales-pitchy" - my grandfather used to refer to 'snake-oil salesman' - and that's the description that came to mind as I read. I read a lot (no, really - a LOT) of self-improvement titles, and I work to put into practice the techniques and principles that feel right. This book is clear from the beginning that it won't offer tools - "There are no techniques anywhere in this book - there's nothing for you to learn, remember, practice, or do. I'm simply going to point us toward some fundamental truths about life and we'll see what we can see." I guess that's a little too vague for me.
I rec'd a copy of this book from Hay House for the purposes of this review. Opinions expressed are my own, and no other compensation was rec'd.
