I am working my way slowly through this book, underlining points that resonate with me. I have never read a book like it. It is helping me to understand the nature of what could be reality. It deals with the "ego-self" which needs to be understood before the true self can begin to emerge. For anyone wanting a framework for living authentically this book may well offer it. I hadn't come across some of the terminology before but I'm not put off by it. The concepts being dealt with cannot adequately be put into words but they need to be called by some names. The key to me is, "Will this book help me to discover the person I wish to be?" So far the answer is "Yes." I still have a lot more of the book to read but even if I take out of it what I've been learning in the first 64 pages it's been worth every penny.

As a "nut and bolt" man one of my criticisms of the genre is that most spiritual books tend to be ethereal.
"Aye" that is all very well I would think "but how do we bring it into practice?"
One way which I discovered from the experience after a major loss in my life, was through PROCESSES.

Discovering the "Grief Process" and appreciating how it related to my circumstances was a major source of help in accepting the loss.
Then in The Enneagram, which is part of the processes Take Me To The Truth embraces, I found a process for first self discovery and then development. My spiritual searching also brought to my attention "The Forgiveness Process Model" as defined by The International Forgiveness Institute. I found that all of these Processes provide a vocabularly that enables down to earth communication with others of important spiritual matters.

However one set of spiritual ideas that I found very hard to get a grip with are contained in A Course of Miracles, (especially Forgivess as ACIM presents it) and it was through my interest in this that I came across Take Me To The Truth.

For me anything that could demystify ACIM was worth reading, particularly as it promised me, a process fan, to do so by setting out spiritual development as a series of processes that life constantly presents at our door.

In that respect TMTTT more than hits the mark. It actually embraces, under one overreaching TMTTT process, which is itself set out in stages, a parallel series of processes that anyone can relate to their own life and spiritual experience, either as a result of passing through them or even being stuck in them.

At least that was my own experience as I read each chapter. "Wow, that reflects my own (spiritual development) experience" was a thought that came to me constantly as I read TMTTT.

So to any one trying to make sense of it all, trying to establish what Life is actually telling you about life (which HAS to be the only truth) I thoroughly recommend Take Me To The Truth.

It will get you thinking about what you think and why. It will make you question WHO is actually doing the thinking and will introduce you to (or confirm) ideas which, although they will turn how you see everything on its head, will nevertheless leave you more firmly at one with real Love than before you discovered what the Truth in Take Me To The Truth is.

Book: Take me to Truth
Reviewer: Reader from England

I came to the book via Gary Renard's website having just read Disappearance of the Universe and really wondered whether it could match that - it has and more. For anyone interested in Course in Miracles and getting to grips with 'how' one releases guilt and forgives at a 'Quantum' level - this book is for you. A genuine 'how to' book addressing the most difficult area of 'undoing the ego', beautifully written and delivering the goods. Superb. Can't recommend it enough.

An interesting take on the subject. There are many books and hundreds of spiritual teachers who deal with this, it has been explained for thousands of years. Understanding the ego and moving to a point of stillness, the point in meditation where thoughts cease is not difficult when one understands the technique, then it is possible to transcend ego and not be the mind created concepts, the I that we imagine ourselves to be.

Take Me to the Truth: Undoing the Ego
This book is exceptional, through your reading of the content it will enable you to understand your own behaviour and behaviours of us. This will be achieved by identifying and understanding the EGO. I've found since reading this I am not offended so much by peoples behaviour, due to it not being personal, but more a way of self defence.
It's also inspired me to look at my own behaviour, and how I can make positive changes within myself, so I'm not constantly getting into difficult situations by challenging negative behaviour of defending egos.
If your wanting to understand yourself, and others this is a good book to read.

Loved this book! The ego is totally exposed and decomposed into its constituent parts, parts that are shown ultimately to have a completely illusory nature. Just a series of habits and old thought-patterns, nothing substantial at all. Well written, if a tiny bit repetitive in places.

if you don't have, and want to have enlightening and empowering relationships, then you must find a new way of being. This book will offer you a different way... and a practical way that has worked for the authors and apparently countless other couples and singles. The only thing that stands in your way is your own Ego! So hold on tight, it's well worth the read!

For more on Take Me To Truth you can listen to my interview with the authors, Nouk Sanchez and Tomas Veira on Feed your mind change your life, online on My Spirit Radio

I couldn't get through more than a few chapters of this - the irritating writing style just made it a real chore to read.

Italics used for emphasis in seemingly every other sentence; capitalized terms used in every other paragraph to express emphasis again - but for no obvious reason.

Too many short sentences - probably intended to be profound and to stick in the mind - break up the flow and make reading disjointed, bitty and difficult to form a coherent picture of the ideas trying to be conveyed.

Endless references to "A Course in Miracles" serve as textual adverts and further distract the reader from what is trying to be expressed.

Judging by all the positive reviews for the book - it's just me.

But for me, it's a text that could be better written and in a far more flowing and engaging style.

I have already bought several more copies for friends. Persevere with this, and it will improve your life by 50%, then (somehow) get your partner to absorb it as well, and your lives will improve 100%! If the whole world read this book, it would be a very different place indeed....
