From the author of the No.1 New York Times bestseller
The Untethered Soul comes the astonishing true-life story about what happens when you just let go.
A thriving spiritual community on more than six hundred acres of pristine
forest and meadows in Florida, a cutting-edge software package that transformed the medical practice management industry, a billion-dollar public company whose achievements are archived in the Smithsonian Institution, a book that became a New York Times bestseller and an Oprah favourite, and a massive raid by the FBI that would lead to unfounded accusations by the U.S. government - how could all of this spring from a man who had decided to live alone in the middle of the woods, let go of himself, and embrace a life of solitude? But this man had made a radical decision - one that would unwittingly lead him to both the pinnacle of success and the brink of disaster.
Michael A. Singer, author of The Untethered Soul, tells the extraordinary story of what happened when, after a deep spiritual awakening, he decided to let go of his personal preferences and simply let life call the shots.
As Singer takes you on this great experiment and journey into life's perfection, the events that transpire will both challenge your deepest assumptions about life and inspire you to look at your own life in
a radically different way.

Ever since I have begun on this journey which I now understand came at precisely the time it needed for me, I have struggled with the concept of 'just make a list of your wishes, visualise, be specific, set a time line, etc etc etc'. I sat in so-called law of attraction type seminars with the main theme being 'what is it you really want', listen to accounts of people who had their plans clearly mapped out, who seemed to visualise like mad and seemed so convinced that 'this is what they wanted'; while I sat there thinking 'what the hell is wrong with me that I sort of know what I want but that I am actually not quite sure'....
Well, fast forward to now, I know now that this is a journey that I was meant to be on. This book is for anyone who has arrived at reading Eckhart Tolle's 'A New Earth', felt a huge wave of peace and relief, felt an even bigger relief and peace when reading Marianne Williamson's 'A Return to Love', began to study and read the Course in Miracles and finally understands the concept of 'asking life what it wants from me'.
I always thought that unless I make it happen for me, nothing ever gets done; I always thought that in a certain way life was a bit of a struggle, that I need to go out there and take the bull by the horn. That unless you have a clear plan mapped out towards your goal, you won't get there. That people will take advantage of you if you don't watch out for yourself, that you need to compete in this world etc etc - all the things that years of working in the financial industry in both New York and London effectively teach you....
Reading this book will bring such a huge relief to anyone who finally wants to understand what can happen when you just let go (anyone who knows me will know that for me to 'let go' is the antithesis of how I used to operate in my daily life...), when you just surrender yourself to the stream of life, when you detach yourself from your thoughts, your likes and dislikes, and just go with what life presents you. Reading this book and listening now to The Untethered Soul as an audiobook also makes A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle more comprehensible (to me Eckhart Tolle is my spiritual teacher bar none but his language is tougher to understand sometimes).
I hope this review will help those like me who have come full circle and finally understand what life is all about. What the next years will bring, I don't know - but I am excited to find out what my own 'surrender experiment' will bring!
Great book and thank you so very much to Michael Singer for writing this!
Great book! Will read it again.
Hoping Michael will write a follow up. He barely mentions his wife and daughter and I longed to hear more about this side of his life but perhaps he deliberately kept that private.
An extraordinary book which I will recommend to everyone.
Loved it and didn't want to put it down!
