Written in 1975, this is a New Age classic and a truly awful book. Normally I just ignore awful books, but I have some things to say about exactly why the worldview presented by Keyes is toxic.

The post-colon half of this book's title is "The Science of Happiness," which points to two ways this book is false: first, it teaches that spirituality is a science (it is not, it is an art). Second, it teaches that the goal of spiritual development is personal happiness (and it's not -- personal happines...more

This is the most profoundly practical book to clean up your unhappiness act and choose a happy way of life. It's neuroscience reprogramming before its time. (It sold a million copies in the 1970's. I just reread it and am amazed how much working with it had bettered my life. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

A sloppy book in my opinion; yet if you can use his model without sticking to the book I'd expect great success. A nice book to get started on a positive path in life.
While reading one of my older books by Iyanla Vanzant, I came across the name of this book which she credited as one of the books that helped her in her spiritual journey. I couldn’t find this book online or at my library but luckily, after googling the author’s name, I found a PDF copy of the book online available for download – for free!
If I hadn’t read Eckhart Tolle’s “Power of Now”, I admit that this book would have made no sense to me. Even so, I feel that I will need to read this again and...more

This book helped me to recognise how to change things that I did not know how to change about myself.For someone who did not possess the skills needed to begin making changes in my life, this guided me in a gentle,practical way.I still use some of it daily.It helps you to begin the internal dialog needed to begin healing a cycle of wrong thinking.If you know someone who is struggling with trying to do better but they honestly do not know how, suggest this book to them or make sure they get a cop...more
I choose to read this book, because it was mentioned in 'the Conversations with God' books and so it didn't really provide me with any new information about the benefits of sprituality. But what I liked about this book is the "how to" explanations, the steps to grow towards a higher conciousness. I'm looking forward to using them! They are simple and easy to understand even though the discriptions of the different paths are quite lenghty and therefore a little difficult to learn by heart. Overal...more
Five semi-ironic, semi-insincere stars for Ken Keyes Junior. The functioning of my biocomputer has reached the Cornucopia Level.
Genius book. So many modern self-help books probably rip this one off. Seriously. Wayne Dyer wrote a preface for one edition, yet Ken's far more profound. His focus on a system for happiness is great. Even his hippy attitude is tolerable in mod times. Eliminating addictions is key with him, which is spot-on. However, the book organization is not the best.
Just reading this book made me feel calmer. It offers great advice, and can truly help you to see life in a more mature, healthier way. A bit repetitive at times, but overall, definitely worth a read if you are looking for tools to handle everything in life in a more balanced, positive way.
Wow. Everyone should read this book. Defining the "obvious." Teaching how to operate from higher consciousness, and what that means, instead of animalistic-automatic-emotion-backed-responses. Great stuff. Life changing in an internal way... reprogramming.

i read this after i got my degree in astrology at 13 from sylvia sherman's school in west orange nj - when i got this book they dude at the store said " you're the youngest person to have ever bought this book"
old old old
and forever young
I can't believe I missed this book along the way.

This book is from 1975. Ideas presented predate and are incorporated by Anthony Robbins in Awaken the Giant Within and Eckart Tolle in his books. A precursor for sure.

This book breaks down in a step by step manner how to let go of programming that does not serve you and how to replace it with bliss. Great workbook that greatly influenced my life.
Apr 08, 2007 Margie rated it 5 of 5 stars Recommends it for: Everyone
This book laid the groundwork for a lifetime of spiritual achievement. Revisited many times over the years, and each visit brings new insights.
All Us Living Love Always. This is a beautiful message. Read it with an open heart and mind, and, it will change your life.
I read this book at age 15. I can still say that it is one of the most influential books I ever read.
The best and easiest formula for reprogramming the mental operating system!
