Bought this book 3 days ago and just finished it. If there is a key to happiness, life, goals, etc. it is in this book. The subconscious is a powerful friend that I feel everyone should read about. :)
The author forewarns that most of the book contents are copies of other persons material. I did find that MANY pages could have been eliminated; each lesson ends with a lengthy description (what one should perhaps read)of what to suggest/tell your subconscious mind whilst in the Alpha state. I didn't like treating the subconscious as a "person"...thanking it, praising it, etc. I did like the fact that I didn't have to read the last was on prayer.

I was able to pick up a few ideas and

One of the best books I read on subconscious mind and its abilities. This book extends the ideas presented by Maxwell Maltz in his book Psycho-Cybernetics.

Best book I've read in the whole "The Secret" genre.

The Genie Within is a book with a great concept if you go in with an open mind. Not everyone is going to appreciate some of the things in the book or how they are presented, for example, prayer. The author also puts a lot of emphasis on hypnosis. Not only is it mentioned in many of the examples to back up his claims but he also gives self hypnosis passages for you to use yourself. Overall, the concepts covered are beneficial and if practiced will improve your life, your well being and your healt ...more

This is an interactive book that requires a small time commitment to do the exercises. While I did find some real benefits and deep truths, there was also a fair amount of what I considered wishful thinking. Maybe I'm just not doing it right ... Anyway, despite that, I did like this book very much.

For the most part I am on board with the author's premise, but I think how he presents the material, sometimes made it hard to take it all seriously. I listened to the audiobook and the narrator didn't help by any means, it was obnoxious to have to hear the narrator try to use a hypnotist voice and carry on with "relax... you are feeling very relaxed... your toes are relaxed, oh so relaxed, you just love how relaxed your toes feel, oh soooo reeeelaaxed, oh it feels sooooo good to have the toes f ...more

Might look and sound cheesy but it was very well done. I liked reading because the author has had a lifelong passion for understanding his field. He seems to have a knack at presenting the information in a way that promotes retention-go figure. He often sounded like an excited kid which might be lame to some but came across as endearing to me.

This book one of the few books that you can't put it on the shelf and forget about it. I read it 3 times and I will read it again and again.

Nice writing, good exercises, but promises over the edge capabilities that never fulfills (perhaps needs some Tuting with an instructor).
