I've never read a book that's so badly written. There are some interesting bits of information in here and the theme of the book is sound, but it's just such a bad read!

The book is patronising and repetitive - you can almost see the scribbles from the editor saying 'more here please James, flesh this out a bit'. But Borg's idea is to repeat the message he's just given you like he's introducing new material. I was getting tired of this by the end of chapter 4, 'the stressed mind set', when I read chapter 5, 'anxiety' - practically the same chapter all over again.

I was expecting more from this author. His book 'the art of influencing people' is listed by the HR department at my client (a global banking group) as one of it's top reads on communication. I'm tempted to pay the money just to see if it's as bad as 'Mind Power'.

In short, this reads like an American infomercial - page after page of ongoing build-up and very little substance. Eckhart Tolle's 'The Power of Now' deals with this subject in a much better way, albeit from a more spiritual point of view.

I didn't like this book.

It reminded me of The Secret, that book in which if you only *wish* for stuff strongly enough you're supposed to get it. This book similarly proposes that if you simply think a positive way, you will be able to change your life. It didn't work for me and I felt compelled to write this review to warn others off it.
