5.0 out of 5 stars True positivity, 2 Dec 2008
The important thing for me about this wonderful book is that every page felt really alive, as though I was being spoken to by a genuine friend, who has my best interests at heart.
The breadth of learning, across many different religions and cultures, and the examples from Mr Dyer's own life and that of his readers, were often illuminating and thought-provoking.
I preferred the first part, and particularly the discussion of Patanjali's yoga aphorisms in the second chapter, but would recommend this to anyone who is willing to approach their attitude to life's problems and cares with an open mind and heart.

Comparsa, like all the Deep Forest albums, combines the timeless traditional melodies of non-Western societies (on this occasion, mainly from Central America and Madagascar) with the modern conventions of electronic dance and ambient music. Comparsa is another exceptional contribution from Deep Forest. What makes Comparsa so worthwhile are the vocal performances, imbued with deep warmth and compassion,… Read more
