2.0 out of 5 stars So far? Intensely irritating and spiritually suspect?, 24 Dec. 2013
This review is from: E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This review is based on my reading just under half of the book and the first three experiments so far.

As others have commented on here, the writing style is a little too kooky/conversational/functional for my tastes. But, y'know, that could be forgiven if the 'experiments' were life-changing or revelatory in some way. And I am prepared to accept that they might be life-changing for some. (Especially, perhaps, for those who have never had profound, spiritual, life-changing, perspective-shifting experiences before!)

But the first experiment just felt like a petulant ultimatum to the Universe/God/All That Is/etc! You've got 48hrs to prove to me your existence... or else! If I were the Universe/God/All That Is/etc, I think I'd be tempted to keep incredibly quiet and incredibly still for those 48hrs, just to be awkward and to prove a point about patience being a virtue, the off-putting nature of ultimatums and providing a lesson in not being so damn pushy!

I really dislike the sense of entitlement that more and more people seem to have in life generally these days and I dislike this author's promotion of this sense of entitlement in spiritual matters too!

The second experiment just felt trite and spiritually insignificant and seemed to have logical holes in it big enough to drive a whole fleet of sunset-beige Humvees through !

The third experiment was dowsing for beginners... even though the word 'dowsing' was never used!

It is feasible that the rest of this book and its experiments will take a quantum leap in quality and spiritual profundity. And as and when I plough through them, I may well update this review and eat my sceptic's hat. But, somehow, I have a hunch that what I'm going to encounter is even more ego-driven, selfish and materialistic so-called 'spirituality'.
