This is one of the most fascinating and inspiring books I have ever encountered! I haven't read the previous books written by Dyer but it seems that this is his best because it presents all of his most important principles, teachings and guidelines for peaceful, balanced and positive mindset that will allow our core qualities and powers to manifest in our thinking and behavior.
I would like to applaud the author for having the courage and determination to write the book from the first page till the last one as he felt it without compromising with anything just to please somebody. I think that the greatest piece of wisdom in his book is to become as detached as possible because there are so many things beyond our control that it is a waste of time and efforts to start a doomed fight in attempt to change them. Wayne Dyer will teach you how to live in peace with yourself and the world as a whole. I think that this is especially valuable for people dealing with a lot of stress on a daily basis.
I support the author for focusing mostly on inspiring you instead of motivating you. There are plenty of books that teach you step-by-step what and how to do in order to achieve your goals. Actually, inspiration and motivation are the two sides of one coin. "Inspiration" will show you the best, most valuable, and time tested ways to be inspired on a daily basis. On the other side I liked very much the inspiration and motivation throughout Alan Ritz' bestseller "Scientifically guaranteed multiple orgasms and ultimate sex" as well. Enjoy your reading.
Well, upon opening this book I knew nothing about the author but, as soon as he identified himself as the reincarnation of Saint Francis of Assisi I knew I was in for a ride. Unfortunately, the ride was like a long bus trip across the desert. Granted, this is a pleasant, upbeat book and relaxing enough to read and, unlike many guru-writers, Dyer seems harmless. There are a few interesting observations but not enough to fill 252 pages. For the most part, it's a book of rather shallow simplicities ("Generosity is a way to be more God-like" and "We deserve to feel joy.") That's all nice, but leaves the reader with little that hasn't been said over and over since the Sixties. More to the point, Dyer points out money flows to him because 'he is money.' No doubt--while he points out in Chapter 16 that "becoming inspired isn't achieved by attending workshops," it's amusing to note that he offers plenty of them--as well as CD's, "Inner Peace Card Decks," and a nifty "Power of Intention Flip Calendar." All for a hefty price, of course.
Vibrational thinking aside, this book's rambling, droning style and constant use of "I" and "me" might make a good relaxation tape. If you're looking for something beyond gushy "feel-good," however, find a Bible, Torah or Gita.
