Well written but with a complete absense of originality or substance...

I normally wouldn't write a review about something I'm disappointed in because such things are so personal - what doesn't resonate with me may work for you, after all. However in this case I have to say how totally disappointed I was in this book. I admit it was only a couple of £s on Kindle, but these couple of £s add up and if you're like me you want the book you buy to at least give you (a) value for your money and (b) what it promises. This little book gave me neither. This experience may be entirely different for you, but I can only give you my personal review and you can go with your own instincts. It is, after all, only a couple of £ and sometimes we just need just 3 basic tips to tip us over the edge into the fabulous world of astral travel - or so this book tells me.
Ok. Plus points. The three ideas it comes up with will work for some. They are direct, simple and easy to follow. And they may work for you. If they do they will save you even the most basic time trawling the internet trying to find something to help you have your first OBE. The book is succinct, well written and gets to the point (a rare quality). So many OOB books are long-winded and give you so many instructions, anyone would think you were about to take over the control panel of a military jet rather than your own astral body. So this was a plus point for me. The author's own personal experiences are kept interesting and brief - another rarity.
However, the author's 'point' is so brief, it is over almost before it has begun. The 3 ideas (including the special 'secret' one) you can easily find for free after a few minutes Googling online. I was quite overwhelmed with the anticlimax and disappointment. I reached the end of the book within 25 minutes realising there was not one single new or original word written about OBEs. What I really find most disappointing is that, in my own long search to find a way to leave my own body, the book gives you such hope and yet in my opinion does not in any way deliver what it promises.
The only caveat to this would be if you are completely new to the world of astral travel, have not researched any other OOB methods yet and want to save yourself 5 minutes of time on Google. Otherwise I really can't see what the point of this book was about except to make some money for the author.
All in all, it may work for some and it may well be just what you're looking for. But I am left feeling like a dog who's had a Bonio waved at her and then snatched away at the last minute. As much as I would love to end on something positive for a Kindle author who writes refreshingly well, that sadly was my experience of reading this book.
Thank you so much for reading x
