I found this book in a laundromat. It immediately struck me as something I wouldn't read, and then I started reading it anyway. Then I brought it home and kept reading it. Hmmm.

I've finished this book, and I think that I can take a lot from it. And I'll probably read it again. For most of the book, I'm with Dyer and I'm into what he's saying, and then every once in a while I start thinking he's a wack job. And then I'm with him again. It's quite confusing, actually.

El genero de este libro es sin duda la espiritualidad, así que, si no eres una persona religiosa, o con cierto interés por lo trascendente, no disfrutarás de él.

Tras pasar la última página y cerrar el libro, me quedo con la sensación de que me queda mucho que aprehender de esta obra, con la primera lectura solo alcanzo a ver la superficie, pero me gusta lo que veo: somos seres espirituales antes que seres físicos, y a través de nuestro interior, podemos conectar con una inteligencia superior que

I could barely read through the first 50 pages of this book without stopping as it was discussing so many things and topics that myself and a co-worker and been discussing and debating recently, notably about religion and the creation of the universe. What I like about this book is how it talks about spirituality without delving into the dogma of a particular religion and instead borrows from many. These books in general are good "feel good" books as they encourage you to just be yourself and fo ...more

This is a wonderful guide to believing in yourself! Thank you again, Dr. Dyer!

I think it's very nice that you dedicated it to MJ & Deepak. I respect that you still recognize Michael as "A transcendent being, who had not only tremendous talent, but a heart as big as the sky" ~Wayne Dyer

This book gives one so many tools to overcome any obstacle and work the miracles she/he is here to accomplish.

I will read again to keep the concepts fresh in my mind.

“This book was written with the express purpose of showing you the way to create what you may have previously thought to be impossible in your life.”

“When I gave up the pursuit of money, more of it flowed into my life than I had ever known before. Why? Because I was living my purpose and surrendering to the universe to provide for my needs.”

“If you want to experience prosperity at a miraculous level, you must leave behind your old ways of thinking and develop a new way of imagining what is poss

don't like it so much as some other kind of "metaphisics" books.

with a lot of cool phrases of some cool authors, but with a lot of stupidities about the perspective of the psiche, that can harm the mind, thought.

Libro con metafísica, auto ayuda y sobre todo programación mental. Tiene datos positivos, todo lo basa en la meditación, auto conocerse y dar. Simple, repetitivo al estilo norteamericano.

This was one of my favourite books and I recommended it to others for at least 15 years after I first read it. Overall I read it 6 times. Even today it's still worth the read.

Actually one of my favorite Dyer books. A bit outdated, but the concepts are still valid.

"La gente siempre le echa la culpa a sus circunstancias por lo que ellos son. Yo no creo en las circunstancias. La gente a la que le va bien en la vida es la gente que va en busca de las circunstancias que quieren y si no las encuentran, se las hacen, se las fabrican."

Not at all my favorite. I think I might of liked it better if he didn't dedicate the book to Michael Jackson. I judged him instantly (although not fair) as someone I didn't want to take spiritual advice from. I really didn't love the book... It was a bit to out there for me, however I also can't say I disagreed with anything he said either. I think it's a great book for anyone who doesn't have any specific beliefs to start understanding there is a higher power. If you do have stronger spiritual ...more

Recommends it for: Those who liked The Secret
This book is excellent! It's subtitle tells it all: Creating Miracles in Everyday Life. As anyone who has watched Oprah can tell you. It's all about what's going on inside of us. But it's not always easy to change our thoughts, or even to catch ourself thinking them.

Wayner Dyer provides great tips in an easy to read book that helps us to change our thinking.

In one line: Think of this book as the 'how-to' for the book The Secret. (Note: this book was originally copyrighted in 1992)

thinking about this...
This is the first book Wayne Dyer wrote as he really started to go off the deep end into New Age mysticism and "manifesting miracles". As always with Wayne, the writing and anecdotes are good, and the message is positive. Worth reading, but take some things with a grain of salt.

One of the first books I read on my journey. A gentle, wise, & easy to relate to book. Don't judge a book by its cover (dislike the new cover). The contents inside are warming & reassuring. A wonderful read!

Another great Wayne Dyer book. It's not about "magic" like tricks and spells. It's more of a metaphor for creating beautiful things in your own life. Creating a magical life for yourself and those around you!

Took me a while before what I read "stuck" so I read much of the beginning of book multiple times before it began to click. Enjoyed the book once I got on a roll.

Slow read...great subject of being spiritual and how to control your life. Also how what one thinks affects the entire around. The thought is what it is.
