5.0 out of 5 stars It's up for grabs! 3 May 2007
Well, I had this book on my shelf for a couple of years before I settled into reading it. That in itself must say something about synchronicity. David Ricoh, in his usual style, provided the reader with a map of the journey if you should care to embark. At the end of each chapter there were activities to do. I think this is what put me off before as you do need to do the practices to really get what this book is offering. It was a catalyst for changing my world, enhancing what was good and, well, just letting go of the stuff that was holding me back. If you want to have synchronicity, then this book is for you but it does require effort in the beginning

It would be redundent to say i found this book at a time that was syncrhonisitic! Beyond that --there is so much plain, useful, loving guidance in it that it must be kept and re-read for further growth and digestion. I found many gems that pertain to me , NOW , and i know if i keep it around i will unearth many more as i grow, partly as a result of having read the book. It woun't be for everyone of course, but if you find yourself on the brink of self-discovery not quite sure which way to go or how to find out, this book will be a treasure chest of joy and knowledge for you.

The best book I've ever come across written on synchronicity. A well of information. After reading this book, I can't help but notice synchronicity in action.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing very unexpected or miraculous here 7 Nov 2000
By Mark Edward Bachmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Maybe I've read too many books covering this same territory, but this one doesn't seem to me to have very much new to offer. There's a great deal of wisdom here, but all of it's cribbed directly from well-known sources and, while well enough written, the work is compiled without much original contribution by Dr. Richo. The underlying ideas are a blend of classic Eastern philosophy, Jungian psychology, Christian and Buddhist ethics, and Joseph Campbell's mystical anthropology, all packaged into a kind of pop New Age format complete with "practice" exercises and an advertisement on the last page for Dr. Richo's tapes and workshops. None of this is to say that the book isn't thought-provoking, but only to suggest that readers who are familiar with the source material may find Unexpected Miracles derivative and a little dull. The most useful purpose the book could serve perhaps is to stimulate people who haven't read the originals to experience the rich rewards of doing so.

3.0 out of 5 stars This was no gift. 26 Oct 2000
By Linda J. Barrett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
David Richo is obviously intelligent and armed with a stunning vocabulary. However, this said, he never manages to get beyond the academic and esoteric when discussing synchronicity. Although he is quite informative when speaking about different religions and metaphysics in general, he is unable to explain clearly how we as individuals should go about understanding, creating and applying synchronicity in our daily lives. There are "lessons" at the end of each chapter, but these seem almost an after thought. I was very anxious to get my copy of this book, but was more than just slightly disappointed when I finally was able to read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars At The Right Time 7 July 2000
By J. E. Cantrell - Published on Amazon.com
I found this book to be wonderful for those seeking to understand the concept of synchronicity and how it affects their life. The author gives exercises throughout the book that relate to the chapters. I finished it last night, and it is already loaned to a friend! A practical guide that brings the varied aspects of high-brow concepts down to earth at a workable level.

4.0 out of 5 stars disturbing synchronicity 5 Jan 2002
By aubyn - Published on Amazon.com
I have believed that alot of this stuff is hocus-pocus. And yes I have read some of the other "originals" mentioned in another review. However I picked up this book and found that one of David Richo's favorite Shakespearean quotes has long been mine also - from the Merchant of Venice. I thought that interestingly weird! Since then I have thoroughly enjoyed his books and am making friends with the idea that perhaps this cynic can learn something. I didn't give it five stars as I'd like David Richo to write another book that goes more deeply into this subject! I DO think, however, that the reader would benefit from buying and reading this book.
