This book is on par with that of Eckhart Tolle's "Power of Now" and I am surprised not many know of it. A must read for everyone, even if you don't understand it, go through it, for when you reach a point in life where everything around you is crumbling, you will think of this book and when you read it again, you will understand everything that the author wishes to convey.
The two keys and the four maps is a system that has the ability to destroy itself which is of utmost importance if one has to die as a caterpillar and take birth as a butterfly. The book shows you the path to dissolve yourself or attain unity consciousness and for that everything that you stand for has to melt into nothingness just as the awareness of the sun's rays melt the snow, and the flowing water is turned into vapour where it becomes formless and merges with the universe.
The questions that the author asks you to ask yourself are very thought provoking and help you uncover your true self. He puts it very nicely "Myths and folk tales often tell the same story. A knight clad in armour - the ego - rides deep in the dark forest - the unconscious. His task is to vanquish dragons and demons - his guilt, his fears, his conflicts. On setting foot in the castle, he removes his armour and embraces the Sleeping Beauty lying in a glass coffin who instantly wakes up. This scene represents the union with your true nature."
To put things in perspective a human goes through four phases - kama (sensual), artha (wealth), dharma (righteousness), and sanyasa (enlightenment). This book will be well understood by those who have crossed the Artha phase. The author is aware of this and says "No matter your position in life, economic stability is an invaluable base if you wish to have enough time to learn about yourself."

This is the ultimate handbook that will give us the tools and techniques necessary to make these life enhancing changes. The teaching of The Four D’s is brilliant and the self-discovery questions that the author challenges us to answer will help us find our own answers. These offerings have been researched and time-tested so credibility is not a concern.
The design of the book along with the content, the research, and practicality of the presentation leads me to give it five stars!
I highly recommend this book to anybody that has struggled to find happiness and fulfillment in their life, people that struggle with their well-being, and to people that are looking to make a drastic, lasting change in their life.
I love that it uses techniques and principles from other religions and schools of thought to make this a very trustworthy body of work. This book is definitely going to be shared with every person I know. By just practicing mindfulness and allowing your mind to grow, amazing things can take place, as this book did that for me. Compared to other books in the genre, How to Get Out of This World Alive clearly stands apart as one of the most researched, thoughtful, and user-friendly in the genre.
We have been conditioned to believe one of two things (or both); exploring the spiritual side of our being is hippy dippy, or exploring the nature of spirituality is blasphemous. Both are incredibly wrong. To quote Teilhard de Chardin's The Phenomenon of Man, "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience." Each one of our journeys is incredibly individual, but at the same time a shared experience. To not truly plumb the depths of what our soul is, is to cheat ourselves of the full measure of our design and purpose. Doing so allows us to live a more meaningful life and connect more deeply with those around us. Alain gently explores this topic in a way that is non-offensive and non-denominational; no simple task to be sure.
If you are ready to take stock and truly examine your spirituality and full potential, then Alain Forget's "How to Get Out of This World Alive," is a wonderful guide for you.
The author uses a vivid and vibrant writing style that draws you into the complex world of knowing oneself and the psychology behind who we are and what we do. He provides a fantastically in depth guide to improving ourselves and our lives with tools, techniques and advice that walk the line between "psychology, philosophy, mysticism and metaphysics" in a carefully balanced way. It's well written with a casual but informative writing style that is straightforward and incredibly honest in its approach.
Overall, this turned out to be an insightful book that expanded my mind, allowing me to embrace living my life to the fullest and truly taking the reins of life in my own hands and making it what I want it to be, rather than what it has unintentionally become. I would definitely recommend the book to those who want to gain valuable insight into changing their lives for the better.
