I was given a copy of this book by someone who felt I 'needed' it. Humff! Then the title triggered all my prejudices, but I felt I owed the person who gave it to me, that I at least read the back cover... so I did.. and against all my resistance, it clicked with something in me. I started reading it. I'm on my second, or maybe third, read through. It is by my bed, and I dip into it everyday, to remind me of how to 'do it'. It's surprising how difficult simple things are to do!
I've read most all such books, and as much as I love some of them, and feel the truth of those, I'm often left with the feeling of "that's all very well and good, and it would be great to be that evolved, but... I'm only human". Whereas, this book really talks you through it, in a 'do-able' way, accepting ones human fallibility.
It's very 'american' (even using the word 'gal' for a woman), as all to many of these books can be, but it's not too much, and if you can manage to overlook the odd 'gal', it's definitely worth persevering.
I can't say my life has made any dramatic shifts, but I'm able to really see my own bad habits, and if it is some of these aspects of myself that have been keeping me in a place I'm not happy in (which makes a good sense that they could) what have i got to lose by trying to work on liberating myself of them and living a happier life, day-to-day, whether I 'attract' my better life to me or not?
I'm reviewing it now because I've bought two copies on Amazon, for people I think could benefit from it.. neither of whom, as I write, have even opened their copies. One has to be ready for what we may be helped by, I suppose, and I just received my copy at just the moment I was ready to read this book.Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting: The Astonishing Power of Feelings
