Anodea's writings are easy to understand as well as incredibly detailed. The reading was enjoyable and insightful. I was fascinated with her psychological point of view and found it to be very accurate.
I attended Anodea's training recently in Pennsylvania. She is delightful. The material in the book was put into workable situations so that processing and healing can be accomplished. Her "mystical, magical" way keeps you interested... no time for falling asleep.
Highly recommend this book as well as Sevenfold Journey for anyone interested in gaining a greater understanding of the Chakra system. Sevenfold Journey helps with the clearing and balancing process. Excellent adjunct reading!
While the writing is easy to follow, I found this book to be rather annoying. I realize she is writing for people who may not have any knowledge of the chakra system. However, I found that her writing style was verbose, of the school "why say in a paragraph what you can say in six?" Despite that, I felt the book was lacking information. If you want to know more you are encouraged to buy yet another of her books, the workbook. And so, you are left rather hanging. I've encountered other such books where you need to buy additional books, and it is a real turn off, and this is the primary reason for only two stars. Go borrow it from the library. A better book for an east-west discussion of chakras and psychology is Carolyn Myss's Anatomy of Spirit.
