I first picked this book up about 20 years ago just to see what kind of a silly book would have a title like that, but after reading just a couple of pages I realized that it actually contained some wisdom. After reading a few more pages I decided to buy it, and I can honestly say that it's been the single most helpful book I've ever read in my life. I've probably read it a dozen times since then and it's the one book that's actually changed my life. For anyone willing to make the effort, these methods truly do work, and you can start feeling the benefits almost immediately.
One thing that may put off some readers is that it contains a few leftover 60's words like "groovy," but, if one can overlook that, the underlying message is valuable beyond words. Ken Keyes draws somewhat on Buddhist ideas and other philosophies (as he notes in the introduction), but only a genius could organize them into such a practical and usable system.

This is a great book. Not a lot of new info but all the good stuff that we all forget, written in a quick wonderful little story. Especially love the summaries of important points at the end of each chapter. I read the book on a plane, closed it and wrote down a plan to start making some life changes and have followed through on at […]

This is not your typical book on martial arts philosophy in that it contains neither ambiguous one-liners of wisdom nor zen riddles. What it does contain is a wealth of deeply pondered wisdom that is relevant to all warriors and aspiring warriors. If you're someone who understands that being a warrior means far more than […]
Bible Myths And Their Paralells In Other Religions

This thoroughly researched book was written by T.W. Doane in 1882 although (except for things like “Part First” instead of “Part One”) you would hardly say so when you read it.
In this book the "word of god" is clearly presented as being a work of men, altered through time and influenced by […]
Barbara Marciniak – Bringers of the Dawn: Teachings From The Pleiadians
Created on Sunday, 29 March 2009 10:51
I first read this book five years ago, and was totally captivated by it. I had never been exposed to information from channeled sources, so there was an element of newness for me, along with the quality of the content.
I reached a point after a few months where I began to feel that some of the content wasn't accurate, that […]
