I only wish it wasn't so far into the end of the book. But the report giving 17 options for releasing unwanted thoughts and feelings was the gold at the end of the rainbow for me. It was worth enduring the entire book.
I understand that in Joe's personal and career-oriented transformations, amazing things happened to this man and that he obviously has wisdom to share with us all; however, to consistently name drop and repetitively mention his talks and seminars and TV appearances in every dang chapter really gets monotonous and to me...is just a weak filler of text to make a book thicker. It's unnecessary and comes off as very egoistic. ...more

She believed in something, she wrote it, she made you believe in it enough to buy it, and viola! The Law of Attraction at work. Reason most people hate it? - they refuse to believe enough to apply it to their lives. And so it doesn't work. And then they cry hogwash in fits of hootenanny. It's okay though. :) The book, for me, was a bit of a repeat of what was said in the movie, but I expected to gain a little more insight and some additional informational wealth, and that I did, even if very little. I love the concept, and though I felt the book could have been better constructed, I support and embrace myself in "The Law" and firmly believe that if you've gained even one little piece of knowledge, clarity, understanding or help from a piece of literature, it was well worth your time and financial investments. ...more

Whether you are Christian, Buddhist, or anything in between...everyone will benefit from putting into practice the agreements Miguel teaches us through a deeper understanding of human psychology. I find this book to be deeply spiritual and inspirational. The reality he points out in a gentle manner really paints a more clear picture of what is going on behind the hearts and minds of people in our present-day society.
The most important thing I received from this reading was the simple reminder that we often times create our own "hell" and our own suffering. Only we have the power to change our thoughts, even so to the point of being able to look at other suffering individuals in a new light. A light that does not allow their abuse or hatred to penetrate the "dream" we are trying to create for ourselves through a world of inner peace and self-acceptance. I will read certain chapters of this small little gift over and over and over throughout my life! This makes for an amazing gift to share with a loved one who may be in need of some love and light in their lives! 5 stars all the way!...more
