1.0 out of 5 stars Confusion, not Clarity!, 29 Jun 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Clarity: Clear Mind, Better Performance, Bigger Results (Paperback)
This book should be called Confusion rather than Clarity - full of confusing ideas, confusing metaphors, confusing claims, confusing testimonials. Which planet is the author on? ... and maybe he needs to change his name from Jamie Smart!

Just two examples from the book. Firstly, "It is my assertion that what this book endeavours to describe is a genuinely new paradigm, in the Khunian sense. Ironically, it may not meet the scientific criteria for a paradigm as they are currently defined". Dead right about the last bit Jamie. Your book consists mainly of hijacking the work of others and not even doing that well (not to mention not acknowledging their work). And secondly, even the few bits in the book that are cohesive and understandable have much more clarity in their original form e.g. The Power of Now, Mindfulness and even The Three Principles (which itself seems remarkably similar to Mindfulness) which is not exactly a new paradigm Jamie, it being at least a few thousand years old.

This is a truly dreadful mess of a book; can I have my money back please Mr Smart. Also I will not be rushing to take up your associated website offer of becoming a 'Certified Clarity Practitioner' (£8,500).
