2.0 out of 5 stars Abit dissapointed after good reviews.., 21 Sep 2008
This review is from: Prometheus Rising (Paperback)
This is a book about how you can make the most out of your brain. The author is clearly very intelligent and knows the subject very well but alot of the book is very hard to understand because its written in so much jargon. I think the book would have been so much better if it were made simpler and easier to read. You do learn why we behave the way we do and how first imprints from when we are young effect us the rest of our life. The book also comes with some exercises which you do to exercise your mind. The best exercise is the coin trick which putting it simply means and teaches you that whatever you focus on in your life you get more out of. Alot of the exercises are outrageous and you have to think is this author on crack when he wrote it ? he even encourages you to smoke weed, so if its a book about making the most out of your mind why would he encourage you to do this, weed is known to damage the brain severely. There are exercises like pretend to be a nazi for 33 minutes and imagine planning taking over the world, study lions at a zoo, find other ways of pleasuring yourself. Some proper weird exercises. Basically it is a self help book and i give it 3 stars because i think there are other books out there which will benefit you much much more than this. Get Paul McKennas books ' instant confidence ' and ' change your life in 7 days' believe me these are worth investing in and i promise you they work and so easy to read. The author in this book is almost trying to show off his intelligence by making it harder to read than necessary with so much geek jargon.

This review is terrible - you recommend Paul McKenna's books in lieu of this, and one called "Instant Confidence" at that....

Also, anybody who thinks "bookreader"'s (nice name!) review is written just a little too simple and childish will have no problem understanding this book, since it's written in clear, plain English of an adult level. For people who thought this review was JUST RIGHT, this book is not for you. No, there is no "jargon" (oh how I hate that word, it describes nothing but itself), but the concepts might be hard for slower people to grasp, or they will endlessly moralise each thought-experiment or idea and arrange it into some sort of linear and sensical narrative, as our dear "bookreader" has.
