Like many such self-help philosophy books contains a core of good ideas but is surrounded by confusions and exaggerations. I have been to some of Alain Forget’s lectures where he performs well especially at addressing some of the bizarre questions the generic lost acolytes put to him yet he seems a bit lost himself in the book. Alain has a broad well-read knowledge of world philosophies which he is using to make money praying on the confused masses in this world. He creates science-mystical type ...more

I have read many books on Law of Attraction/Awakening and I found this book to be very helpful on putting the principles to use. It was easy to get motivated reading other books, only to have that initial excitement wear off once my old habits resurfaced. Some of the content of this book has been told by many inspiring authors and teachers, which is going to happen of course because they are universal truths. What sets this book a part from the others is that it gives an easy to follow method to ...more

This is very heavy reading.

The basic method is laid out in the first third of the book. It is a set of exercises that require constant practice.

The next third consists of questions and answers about the approach which just reinforces what was laid out in the first third.

The third part of the book provides brief biographies of the various spiritual teachers from all religions who have taught the unity of the universe as the path to spiritual enlightenment.

Overall, I really enjoyed the content of this book. It's a good idea, a simple plan, and the reasoning is well explained. When I began reading it, I thought the 3 Ds were all actions, but now I think they're intended to be stages of your development. If you start the book reading it that way, I think it'll make more sense.

My primary concern with the book is that it's written like a philosophy book. To be fair, I suppose this *is* a philosophy text. The writing uses uncommon or unnecessarily big

The empowerment I felt from reading "How to Get Out of This World Alive" is hard to describe. It was like I was seeing my true self for the first time. It was radically different from the image I had been projecting for so much of my adult life. I felt the author, Alain Forget, tap into my subconscious while reading and allow all these new truths to reveal themselves.

I love that it uses techniques and principles from other religions and schools of thought to make this a very trustworthy body of

This book is written in a very unique and powerful way, as an open discussion. It has a process for clearing your mind of the endless chatter that may be keeping you from reaching your higher self.

Picasso said that the purpose of art is 'Washing the dust of daily life off our souls'. My work as a philosopher is washing away the subconscious losing choices that we make every day by creating a level of awareness that gives us the chance to make conscious winning choices and to evolve.
