I have re-written my review after realising that some of it has been helpful. I think that some of the first half of the book is very simplistic and a bit tired, and I couldn't take it in properly. Having now thought about and used some of the techniques featured, I have realised that it is worthwhile reading this and adding it to your current practises in using the Law of Attraction. I do not recommend coming to this book as a newcomer though - start with The Secret first!

To read the back cover of this,you'd think that the author had just discovered the secret of the universe.In reality,she picks one of the most well known ways to change which is -wait for it!-to change your emotions! From all the great teachings down the ages this is a common theme.In more recent times Carl Jung,Psychosynthesis and NLP all use this as a means of seeing the world in a different light.All she has done is write about this,complete with what is supposedly an original idea of drawing a light switch to show how when you feel stuck in a negative emotion,just switch to a more positive one.By far the most irritating feature is the unashamed nepotism.Apparently,Bob Proctor was responsible for several of the author's"epiphanies" so guess who writes a rave review? yes- Bob Proctor.Same with Caroline Myss and other self-help authors.This is now a standard way of getting something published-have a huge marketng machine which relies on the author's friends reviewing the book,writing recommendations and forewords.What it actually is is sleight of hand , duping the public by subliminal positive association making them pre-disposed to buy.

Negative emotions are our prison and this book is like a key to unlock your emotional cell door. To know isn't enough, you need deeper understanding than that at the level of replacing negative emotions with positive ones and Peggy offers a way to do this.
In the first part, Peggy explains the power of emotions - both positive and negative. In the second part, we get into understanding the relationship between negative and positive emotions. In part three she discusses the concept of "Destiny Switch" and she provides helpful solutions to make the switch in our emotions. In the final part, she helps to put it all together with Destiny Planner - a helpful tool to plan your emotional transformation.
"The Destiny Switch" is a great book for anyone wanting to turn negative emotions into positive ones. A great companion book "Nexus: A Neo Novel" covers the emotional transformation of Logan Andrews from depression and despair to joy and hope. It's really helpful to journey with Logan and experience his transformation and apply lessons learned in "Nexus" to your own life.
