5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! 22 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I first read this when I had just completed a Landmark Forum training in London. It's the nearest revisit you could ever find on paper. Although it describes a fly on the wall view of the original EST training which was two weekends long, it is like going back and doing it all over again. I would recommend it to any Landmark graduate wanting to revisit their Distinctions! It's a must have that I now have in paper and on my Kindle.

4.0 out of 5 stars They would never get away with this stuff today! 20 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having endured the E.S.T. training in London back in 1979, I decided to re-visit same today, by buying the only genuine book on this controversial workshop, written by the famous novelist Luke Rhinehart, who had taken this training also.
The focus of the book is to take you through the actual workshop, step by step, over the 4 days, which were spread over two weekends.
Grueling! And that's putting it mildly.
Don't get the wrong impression here, this book is very well written, with meticulous attention to detail.
It's just that I cannot help feeling that E.S.T used a lump hammer to nail a drawing pin!
Perhaps that kind of gross technology was needed during the 70's decade?
I doubt it, though. It's still a good read. Enjoy your journey!

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective, entertaining, enlightening 15 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can't recommend this book highly enough. It makes complete sense. I am behaving and experiencing life differently since reading it. Jo Vitale's claim that it is "The greatest self help book of all time" may just be spot on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Page turner 25 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A recreation of the est experience. This book is a dramatisation, like the training you don't get insight into the thinking behind the form and content of the training. There are other writing where this does happen. I have re read this book 3/4 times and it is theraputic and enlivening in a way probably only participants can enjoy.

I did the est training in 1979 after reading this book. Would make the same decision now. Tag line was "This book will change your life" and it did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, I couldn't put it down 13 Dec 2013

I absolutely loved this book. It really made me think that I was there in the audience and it taught me a valuable lesson. 'Life isn't as you see it' Learn to see it differently.

I would recommend this book to anyone who has issues and needs to take a closer look at the problem.
