Irritating writing style obscures underlying message,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Take Me to the Truth: Undoing the Ego (Paperback)
I couldn't get through more than a few chapters of this - the irritating writing style just made it a real chore to read.
Italics used for emphasis in seemingly every other sentence; capitalized terms used in every other paragraph to express emphasis again - but for no obvious reason.
Too many short sentences - probably intended to be profound and to stick in the mind - break up the flow and make reading disjointed, bitty and difficult to form a coherent picture of the ideas trying to be conveyed.
Endless references to "A Course in Miracles" serve as textual adverts and further distract the reader from what is trying to be expressed.
Judging by all the positive reviews for the book - it's just me.
But for me, it's a text that could be better written and in a far more flowing and engaging style.

I too found it a chore to read and gave up after a couple of half read chapters.

If you are interested in what A Course in Miracles is about, try Disappearance of the Universe by Gary Renard. It presents the metaphysics of ACIM in a very readable and entertaining style. The focus is on forgiveness. This is how I came to ACIM. I think if I read Undoing the Ego first I would have given up on it as well.

I would like to recommend readers to two far more readable publications:
The Holographic Universe: The Holographic Universe
The Holotropic Mind: The Holotropic Mind: Three Levels of Human Consciousness and How They Shape Our Lives
