This review is from: Money and the Law of Attraction: Learning To Attract Wealth, Health And Happiness (Paperback)
"Law of Attraction", much written about, much maligned. Maybe because of heavily marketed, slightly crass books such as "The Secret". However there are books that are more rigorous in their treatment of the subject. Having read four or five of Abraham's books, I would say they do & if you're interested in this subject, you will find them enormously helpful.
The idea is "that which is like unto itself is drawn" & is ancient, it appears in the philosophies that are now called Hinduism (Sanatana Dharma) which are man's oldest. In brief - it is said that you get the essence of what you predominantly think & feel about.
"Law of Attraction & Money" is precisely what is says on the tin. A book about manifesting finances more in line with what you think you want. Even if you have read Abraham's books before I would still say buy this one because it deals exclusively with a very important issue, an issue around which many of us have, shall we say less than beneficial beliefs & feelings. It's good to have everything Abraham says about this subject under one cover, that does mean of course that there is some repetition from previous books & because it is stand alone, the idea itself has to be explained again for newcomers.
For me the law of attraction has been a fascination for the past 5 or so years although I first heard the idea a decade before that. Over this period I've gone through the same trials & doubts as I guess, most people who've given it a go have. It can be frustrating, worrying, confusing & at times you question your sanity, but then you think there just might be something in it.
Criticisms seem to be: it's nothing new, it's not provable, life doesn't work that way, etc. It is nothing new and we've heard it before, maybe there's a clue there. It's not provable - nothing is, science works on falsification, so as such we only ever have a model that works, it does not mean that model is the way it is. Life doesn't work that way - you need good qualifications & a strong work ethic, etc. Okay that is one way but haven't we all seen it another way, perhaps someone you know who doesn't have either & is doing very nicely. I've worked for myself for six years, worked 18 hours a day & have good qualifications so I've tried it that way & now I'm trying it another.
I guess the big question is - Does it work? Well, there is always an alternative explanation or interpretation you can place on any occurrence so to claim it works or not is false. That said, through this book & CD I finally came to understand something I didn't before, and strangely enough as the book said the next day things changed, an opportunity, in fact an exception opportunity came my way.

Wonderfully summed up!

i wouldn't question your sanity but the person who wrote this book isn't channeling, would you trust a person who has to have her truths come from God in order for you to believe them.
in other words, she doesn't tell you this based on her own research, but says this very easy to understand and straightforward stuff (whether you believe it or not it isnt complex as an idea at least) comes from some entity that is all the teacher of mankind put together. why would that be necessary? cause you'd throw it in the trashcan if it wasn't
i would recommend think and grow rich if u want law of attraction stuff
but then napoleon hill also talks about hard work and isn't trying to make a cult out of his teachings, and he actually researched it, and talked to some of the top people in the world in his day. It's that versus, jesus told it to her in a dream.. which would you believe?
and she also stole all of this from napoleon hill and other authors, for a channeled material, all of the law of attraction stuff isnt very original
