And, he patented ...or what ever they call it... the phrase "The Healing Codes." So, be very careful and only use the word in quotations.
Yes, pages 4 and 5 discuss how he received this "God-given blueprint."
After his arrogant claim, it's about 200 pages of how great he is and testimonials until he actually gets to the code. The book slyly disses yoga, but then one part of 'the code' is breath of fire, taken directly from Kundalini yoga.
The author calls it "Power Breathing." He didn't pay to keep that phrase.
When the book FINALLY gets to the code, after 200 pages of ...oh boy, this will work, God gave this to me... it's a lo-fi version of EFT mixed with slight EMDR and a ultra lo-fi pass of prana techniques.
Bypass this book and go directly to something like "Code of Joy" or others that explain the new research of cellular healing and how it has been here all along and the amazing results you can find from tapping.
If God gave this to Alexander, he was punishing him for not doing the research already all around us and is probably very shocked that Alexander pulled a book deal out of it.
Well, the right platform can get most people published, and God is good platform. I'm surprised God didn't blurb the book.
Yes, I had to read the whole book because after page 5 it turned into an excellent parody of an actual self-help book. It's worth the read if you use that as the context. (less)

I haven't finished the book, but it's good stuff. Mindfulness. Meditation. It's very important for us right now....more important than ever in this land of what I like to call GENERATION MARSHMALLOW.
If anyone else uses that term, tell them it's from me....more essays on these drones who play video games and can't stand a moment of time in a line or driving without telling four square where they are or posting photos on FB about how great their lives are....we're entering GENERATION MARSHMALLOW.
I'm studying this for the piece, but I believe The Dalia Lama blurbs more books than Larry David. In fact, it's so bad that if you get a Dalia Lama blurb, it's not even on the cover, as this book chose Eric Schmidt, exec. chairman of Google OVER a Dalia Lama blurb.
In Buddhism, isn't he a reincarnation of Buddha? Buddha got a back seat to a corporation?
Beyond blurbs....this is a lo-fi version of Matthieu Ricard's book HAPPINESS....and Tan quotes Ricard here and there.
So far it's a great intro into meditation and the power you can attain just through breathing. Indulge. Live life to the fullest. And Dalia Lama, my next book is coming your way. We'll have tea in Tibet. Would love a blurb. Front cover for you. (less)

I remember my parents buying the 'comedy is not pretty' record and how I even used the line, 'do you mind if i fart?' after people asked if they minded if they smoked, making all my friends laugh, but i'm sure the older smokers were just rolling their eyes.
Martin still seems to hide a bit, like he's careful, no he is extremely careful and not as candid as I would like, especially from a comedian who is usually a neurotic wreck.
He discusses having panic attacks for two decades (I relate), but only describes one of them and goes no further.
I don't think he really even knows himself and even though seems content now, still has dad issues, which were also too neatly tidy by the end of the memoir.
The wild and crazy guy is a genius. I'd wait for paperback or get the book from the library.
Of course I read this when I should be reading the writer I'm interviewing on Wednesday...I'm always good at procrastinating.(less)

which was hard, b/c i was really into the book, so my natural response is to take things slow.
i'm not sure if there have been comparisons to Elizabeth Wurtzel, and if there have, i want to say sonnenberg is the decaffeinated wurtzel, but with more emotional attachment.
this is a memoir and it happens early in the book i believe, so not much of a spoiler, but susy's mother is a sexxed up drug addict and constant liar....at eight years old her mother showed her how to masturbate, how crazy is that?
as the story progresses, susy finally kicks into high gear with her sexuality, a little later in life that one would think and ....no, i'll stop there and leave the surprises for you.
yes, worth reading, i can't wait to meet her tomorrow.
