Jamie Smart informs us that Innate Thinking®, which he apparently credits himself for discovering, is a "new paradigm" in the Kuhnian sense that will revolutionize everything in psychology. In fact he compares it to be as important and as true as the theory of gravity and germ theory. Such is the self-righteous drivel scattered about his book.

He also refers to THOUGHT in capital letters every time he mentions it, as well as CONSCIOUSNESS and MIND. Oh, and Innate Thinking® isn't the only term he made up which he feels compelled to include a registered symbol or a trademark (TM) after.

At the end of every chapter is a plea to go online and comment on different pages on his website.

The material's alright, even though Jamie is completely arrogant (he calls everything else in self-help a delusion, while praising his own approach on basically every page), he seems to be entirely oblivious to the fact that most, if not all of the principles he divulges in 'Clarity' have been understood for centuries. A lot of what he describes is simply understood by people practicing mindfulness, for example, or Buddhists, or so many other people. It's been around in more recent forms according to a previous reviewer as being "The Three Principles, first described by Sydney Banks and developed by Jack Pransky, added some concepts of his own, registered his 'Innate Thinking' as a trade mark and packaged it up as a corporate and professional development tool. It will probably make him a lot of money and good luck to him".

So what is Innate Thinking®?

Basically, it's the most wishy-washy definition you can imagine.

It's hard to put his enormously vague definition of Innate Thinking® (is that registered symbol annoying you yet?

Jamie Smart does little for his credibility by claiming his book presents a 'genuninely new paradigm'. The ideas discussed in this book have been around for centuries - and many previous authors have written a lot more eloquently on the subject. I also found this book very repetitive and the tone rather patronising. I also did not like the heavy marketing throughout: at the end of every chapter, you are invited to 'keep learning, sharing, exploring...' soo patronising and so obviously an attempt to draw visitors to his own website - it made my skin crawl.

My main gripe is that I'm not getting what I paid for. The book seems to rely on links to video clips on the website - but you have to 'like' the website links in order to release the second video for each section. I want to be able to read books like this without broadcasting the fact to the world. I want what I've paid for with no strings attached.

The book jacket - and the Amazon page - are full of gushing praise for this book, so I thought I must be missing something. However if you look behind the pen-names you can find most of the reviewers are life-coaches, consultants or Jamie's happy customers. Very few business references.
My opinion? A lot of words to dress up an interesting observation, however almost no recommendations for how to apply this observation. I tried hard, and got 2/3 of the way through waiting for the moment of clarity before finally realising that the book was not going to tell me anything of practical use.
I finally reached the conclusion that the whole purpose of the book is to flog Jamie's consulting service.

Format: Paperback
I felt while reading this book that the author had read 'The power of now' and thought how can I rewrite and remarket these ideas to create a bestseller. The presentation is all very slick and the metaphors very current (as Simin Cowell would say) but the whole thing just smacked of a cynical self help business marketing campaign. The author has trademarked the phrase Inate Thinking and everytime that expression is used in the book it has a little TM above it. Christ almighty!.... periodically you are invited to pause for a moment and chat to your friends on the internet about what you have just read. .... please.!

Although it attempted to repackage some wise concepts it fails to convey them because you just couldnt take the author seriously. Like many of these books it keeps promising to reveal something to you but fails to ever deliver it.

A book written by someone who I imagine is an expert at powerpoint and remembering little tips like...tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them, and tell em what you told em. But ultimately lacking any depth or genuinely useful, practical ideas that can help people in their life.

Definitely not the real deal in my opinion.

This book should be called Confusion rather than Clarity - full of confusing ideas, confusing metaphors, confusing claims, confusing testimonials. Which planet is the author on? ... and maybe he needs to change his name from Jamie Smart!

Just two examples from the book. Firstly, "It is my assertion that what this book endeavours to describe is a genuinely new paradigm, in the Khunian sense. Ironically, it may not meet the scientific criteria for a paradigm as they are currently defined". Dead right about the last bit Jamie. Your book consists mainly of hijacking the work of others and not even doing that well (not to mention not acknowledging their work). And secondly, even the few bits in the book that are cohesive and understandable have much more clarity in their original form e.g. The Power of Now, Mindfulness and even The Three Principles (which itself seems remarkably similar to Mindfulness) which is not exactly a new paradigm Jamie, it being at least a few thousand years old.

This is a truly dreadful mess of a book; can I have my money back please Mr Smart. Also I will not be rushing to take up your associated website offer of becoming a 'Certified Clarity Practitioner' (£8,500).
