I felt this was an important book in helping me wake up to a surprising insight. Yvonne Oswald offers a quiz to help you see how positive or negative your perspective tends to be. I was confident (as was a good friend of hers) that I would score well as an optimist. However, her talented, gentle way of asking key questions, helped me reveal hidden undercurrents of negativity.

يستاهل الكتاب 5 نجوم لكن بسبب الكلام الكثير الذي لم اجد له داعي في بعض

I keep this book close by, and when I have a few minutes, I flip open the book to a random page and let it speak to me. The exercises are thought provoking, and I get something new out of it every time, even when the page is one I have already viewed.

Abstract of this book : Mind your words because it shape your life.

Lot of tips & exercise to switch your words, thoughts, life.

Nice book to have at home for reference ever.

Every Word Has Power clearly explains why words are powerful and how they influence our beliefs thoughts and actions. The instructions are useful.
if you work with youth...there are some good exercises here to teach them the power of language and thought and the connection between them....
great book. every chapter is an eye opener. anyone that reads this book should be able to take something away from it
This is on my re-read list. It's amazing how language shapes our lives and we're not even aware of it.

loved the book! I borrowed it from the library but ordered my own copy after I realized how great it was!
This is a great book! Wonderful unique exercises. A book I'll reference often.
