Yes, please. I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this book, I've listened to similar type books and were left less than satisfied. My writing was stalled before reading this. After reading this, the flood gates opened. Ms. Gilbert hit every nail on the head with humor and thoughtfulness. I didn't agree with everything she said, but a lot of it did resonate with me.
Although it is geared toward writers, anyone who is in the creative fields can benefit from reading this....more

He seems to be a proponent for working hard, making money, get the house/car and then you will be happy. Hang out with people that will benefit you and forget the rest. I have some friends who are not on the super successful track, but it doesn't make them bad people or people that have no worth. Everyone has worth.
I really did want to like this book, but for the most part, I didn't. Tracy has some good ideas but they are wrapped in a lot of out-dated ones. I found myself saying, yes, yes that is good, but mostly I was saying -- that won't work for me. This isn't negative thinking, it is fact. For example, the coming in early/work late scenario will not work in my field. Our OT is monitored. My job does not add to the bottom line of the massive company. I did like the advice about constantly learning and upgrading your skills. I am doing this because I want to do something else. I had to laugh when we said that playing the lottery is dishonest because you are trying to get something for nothing. I'm all for honesty, but really? So I didn't get too much out of this, it actually annoyed me. Too many cliché’s and obsolete. I mean...a Rolodex...really? ...more

This is an exceptional memoir and it has exceeded my expectations.
Dr. Dyer takes us through all the stages of his life. Not only do we travel through his physical life from childhood until recent times, but we travel through his spiritual growth. He expounds on how each stage of his life brought him to new insights and new ways of looking at the world. Each pivotal point has made him the person he is today.
There are things in this book that his fans would know; however, there are some stories that I had not known and now I have a greater appreciation for him. I did not know much about his formal education and how the paths he decided to take, led him to where he is today.
Dr. Dyer has written many books throughout his life and he is generous with his information and knowledge. This book is both entertaining and inspirational.
Although this is a memoir, his writing style is still soothing and uplifting. A lot of memoirs I’ve read have either been braggadocios or depressing, this one is neither. Every sentence was well thought out and well crafted.
I have recommended this book to many of my friends. FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product. ...more
