Mostly Neville quotes, read him instead...
on 10 August 2017
This is my first Wayne Dyer book and I have to admit, it did not live up to expectations at all considering he was recommended as one of the greatest in this genre.
The only bits of the book that were good or of use was the parts he had lifted word for word from Neville's book 'The power of awareness'. Nearly every page would say 'as in Neville's books' and then go on to quote sections of it or other authors works. For this reason and others, it was very rambling, like someone had published their notes and musings, not a real book. you would do better to read Neville himself.
There was also a lot of tangents that had not a lot to do with the subject matter, such as those blurry light spots on photographs and that whole previous life manuscript, what was that?! Seriously, I have no idea what that was even supposed to be about! And that's not even to mention the photograph surgery, that's right, surgery performed in different countries through a photo of Wayne dressed in white. That last part of the book really had nothing to do with the subject matter and seemed more like a vanity project thrown in at the end.
I didn't care for that whole John of God part, and felt it had no merit for the topic at hand. I'm not convinced the man isn't unethical, so felt he shouldn't have been brought up.
Another thing that annoyed me was he would continue to push his previous books throughout this book, or his friends books about her near death experience. It felt as if the book were produced to drive up sales of these other books.
