Book Description

Oct 1996
Laura Day has tutored Deepak Chopra, George Soros, Demi Moore, and hundreds of others to make use of their own intuitive powers. It's a power we all have, a power that anyone can use--some call it "gut instinct," others the "sixth sense."

With Practical Intuition, Laura Day teaches you how to harness this remarkable hidden ability. Through exercises, first-person accounts, and real-life examples, she shows you how to make intuitive decisions about everything from stock-market picks to your love life--consciously and to your benefit.

Backed by the support of her world-famous clients, students, and admirers, Practical Intuition is sure to become one of the biggest self-help debuts in recent history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paid for itself a thousand times over 31 July 2001
By J. A. Storey VINE VOICE
This book is my foundation work on intuition. It has rewarded my investment more than a thousand times over in money alone, and the insight and practical advice I have received through these intuitive exercises in other areas of my life have been worth as much again. This book differs markedly from many other books about intuition by simplifying and demystifying the whole subject. While so many other books will have you carrying out lengthy efforts of "tuning in" and receiving impressions to no particular purpose, this book gets you started right away dealing with issues of practical importance in your own life. After a couple of short introductory chapters, explaining how it works and what you will need, the exercises begin almost immediately. As the book progresses, you will formulate three burning questions of your own and carry out a series of exercises to refine and provide insight into them. The book contains 26 such exercises in all, every one different, and all carried out "blind", that is to say without knowing which question you are answering. Some of the author's own questions are thrown in, so you really never can guess the question you are dealing with. This is not the kind of book you can simply dip into or read for interest alone. You are forced to carry out the exercises as you reach each one before moving on in the text. This may be off-putting to some, but following the rules will reward you with much practical experience by the end of the book, and most likely some genuinely useful answers to a few of your own questions. Added to this, the book is full of examples from the author's students, so you get plenty of insight and encouragement from the efforts of other novices. If you are serious about putting intuition to practical use in your life, then this is the book to get. In fact, it may be the only book you will ever need on the subject.

the author "over eggs the pudding" with strong hints about her own and others pyschic abilities. However, the exercises included in the book are interesting explorations of how the human mind works and I believe the author probably has an unusual/greater intuitive understanding of this than most. Although her perspective is more practical & new age, than scientific or medical. She has recognised that most of us living in the modern world routinely suppress or ignore our intuitive feelings - and her recognition that this is almost always a mistake might be profound. The basic principle of the book is that we should learn to trust and develop our intuition. Her explanation that intuition is our body's way of expressing a sort of subconscious summary of many inputs from our senses, of which there are too many for us to process consciously, rings true. Don't dismiss this book out of hand, it provides some interesting & perhaps unique insights & ideas. Although the exercise-based format become a little tedious after a while, it does provide a practical demonstration of what the author has written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful book that builds intuition skills 23 Jun 2010
By Minerva
Having bought this book on the strength of reviews, I was initially disappointed by the first exercises it contained as to my mind ` that's not going to be intuitive'. Fortunately I stayed with it and by the time I got to the exercise where I had to pick a winning horse in a race without even seeing the list of runners (can't tell you how amazing it was when I did it!) I realised this book was rather special. It simply leads you very gently from very basic steps to what I would call `real intuition'. If you decide to pick and choose through the exercises (tempting at the start) you will miss out on some great confidence boosters which will stand you in good stead when you get to the really challenging stuff. I have continued to build my intuitive skills after reading this book and agree with other reviewers on how good it is. Only minor quibbles, that rather severe cover and the inevitable but credibility threatening Hollywood endorsement. Having subsequently bought more of the author's work I would conclude that this is head and shoulders above the others.

My main motivation to write this review is to balance the very unfair other reviews posted about this book here at the time of writing these words.

A reviewer did not like Laura Day's "grimmacing" picture on the book: what does that have to do with the content or how useful would the book be? I have no idea. Two reviewers thought that the exercises were "dull"; with all due respect, how many millions of people think [all] exercies, including aerobics, are "dull", or a "chore", or whatever else? Calling exercises dull is evidently based on a personal [feeling], and as the exercises are only a fraction of the content of this book, I feel that it is outrageously unfair to take one or two stars off one's rating just because one did not "feel" very good about the exercises. Also notice something else about any reviewers who said that they found other books about the subject more engaging or interesting: the reviewers never said anything about also benefitting more from those other books. So are they picking books about this subject to be entertained, or to learn a difficult skill & forgotten talent?

With that out of the way, the people who would benefit from this book are those who are already open to the idea of the sixth sense, the gut feeling, or those who trust their feelings about things--at least every once in a while. This is a [practical] book, not a piece of fiction or humorous account, and it is right there in the title, Practical Intuition. So yes, it will require concentration and effort on your part to try to grasp someone who is much more knowledgeable about this very elusive and intangible subject, intuition. Imagine yourself trying to teach someone else intuition, or trying to explain it; how easy would it be?
