4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting addition to Buzan's catalogue. 4 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Tony Buzan has produced this apparently as a follow-up to his recent title "Head First" and will presumably be producing matching volumes on the other 9 Intelligences he details in that title. This book contains some interesting ideas and suggestions on improving your spiritual awareness, but the "10 Graces" format is a little off-putting and the fact that so much of the content is duplicated material from "Head First" was a bit annoying - it might have been better if that had been made clear on the cover. It would have been more useful as extension of the ideas from the other book rather than mostly repetition. If you already have "Head First" think twice about buying this - if not there is certainly a lot of interesting stuff in here.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Power of Spiritual Intelligence 5 Feb 2004
Format:Paperback
This is an interesting publication by Dr. Tony Buzan. The book has an introduction, 10 chapters along with some related mind maps. Tony Buzan has given a comprehensive treatise on Spiritual Intelligence and a 10-way strategy to tap into its genius. From his writing I can come up, just like any other spiritual-being, with my own insight. I could in fact rerarrange the wealth, yet concise, information there and reach my own conclusion stating that "spiritual awareness is the key to spiritual connectedness. The side effect of such a connectedness will be an intelligence that certainly benefits those who are connected including the spirited self."
Being spiritually intelligent, himself, Tony was impartial in quoting historic spiritual leaders. In particular, he quotes Muhammed, the Prophet of Islam, a great spiritual leader whose teachings have been, purposefully, either distorted and/or ignored. Tony has risen above religious "partialism" and discrimination and in fact this is the essence of spirituality. It is above every religion for we are all spirits from the same spiritual source, regardless of our own after-born make ups.

The book has been written in a way that confuses people with emotional-intelligence literacy. Tony should have written a chapter about emotional intelligence to draw a demarcation line between the two species of intelligence. In my opinion, and based on my deep evaluation to Buzan's book, emotional effectiveness (EE) is only a human tool to facilitate, promote and achieve spiritual intelligence. EE is the second most important way, after spiritual awareness and getting the big picture, to tap into spirtual intelligence. Hopefully, this can be the addition to his new edition, if any.

1.0 out of 5 stars Superficial and patronising 5 Dec 2013
By fcdw
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really wanted to like this book as the Tony Buzan works I have come across before usually have interesting things to say but there are a number of things about it that I found very off-putting. One is the patronising tone, for example being told that I am going to be 'introduced' to John Donne before Buzan quotes one of the most famous pieces of writing in literary history. Someone could argue that not everyone would know this quote but while this may be true this over-simplification and dumbing down pervades the whole book. It has the feeling of being cobbled together and gimmicky. The multiple choice questions on whether or not you're likely to have a heart attack are ridiculous too. Apparently if a waiter drops ice cold water in your lap you are supposed to laugh heartily and that makes you better person? You could be drunk and just not give a monkeys - which is the only situation I could imagine laughing heartily being the initial response in most people - even really caring ones.
The crux of it is that the emphasis seems to be on 'doing things' that spiritual people do and that is how you become spiritual, but if those actions aren't prompted by an initial understanding which comes from within they are just 'tricks'. Buzan describes compassion as a feeling of sympathy and concern for others, but the whole point of compassion is not (even in my meagre understanding of it) that you feel sorry 'for' others you feel their suffering as though it were your own. A subtle distinction but an important one because it is an act of unity.

If you want some genuine insight into these matters you can't go far wrong with either: "Ancient Wisdom Modern World" by the Dalai Lama or "Everyday Enlightenment" by His Holiness The Gyalwang Drukpa. Both clear,accessible and practical but also profound and beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A smart book for Muggles 22 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
I read a lot in the area of mind, body, spirit and enjoy researching both the esoteric and exoteric. The issue with many books I read is that they can be inaccessible if not taken in the right context - often this means in metaphor.

What Tony Buzan has done with this book is to make the spiritual both accessible and comprehensible. His common sense approach will suit the spiritually aware, the intrigued, the agnostic, the atheist and even the fundamentalist.

Tbank you for sharing with such grace and wisdom ...

3.0 out of 5 stars Basically good.....not for the advanced! 27 Mar 2010
By Damien Faughnan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very basic book. If you are on any kind of a spiritual path, you'll find it pretty elementary. If you are curious about spirituality, this is a good starter book.

1.0 out of 5 stars The author could be the Archbishop of the Church Of Superficiality ...... 29 May 2012
By MovieMusic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This author is a very superficial man who got lucky by trademarking two words (Mind, Maps) that fascinate most people who start thinking about how their minds work. But when you start thinking deeply about mind maps, you will realize that they are like doodles - meaningless scribbles to get your pen working. No matter how many times you look at a mind-doodle, it will give you nothing, because insight has no connection to doodling.

The theme of this book is denial of reality as a pathway to peace of mind. But denial is un-ending hard work for no return other than greater superficiality. The only way to make your life better is to face your unpleasant realities head-on. It is not fun, but it is the only action that will work to take away their power over your life. Burying them underneath "spiritual intelligence" only serves to guide them into silent, hidden destruction of your health. You will end up like the author, singing, "I am a miraculous work of art and design" (P. 20), while crying in some hidden place deep inside for the lack of meaning and purpose in your life.

On page 42 he says, " ... Tiger Woods attributed his meteoric rise in the world of golf to one of his prime personal goals - learning from every experience." Is that what also caused his meteoric fall?
The author's advice to everyone? "Be like Tiger."

Is that still his advice to Tiger's ex-wife Elin, who had to endure Tiger's controlling personality, only to ultimately be publicly humiliated by seemingly endless reports of his cheating on her?
