The Power of the Unseen

When you finally depart this existence for what comes next, how would you like to be remembered? For Marcel Borgi, the answer was one that would change his life forever. Lacking the funds to leave a large inheritance or the free time to volunteer, Borgi soon became fixated on one particular goal: he would be the guy who spent every moment of every day happy-all the time an ...more

I received this book for free through a goodreads giveaway. I think the biggest message I got from reading the book was to go through life with a positive attitude.

An interesting book, which I won in the Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

It is hard to imagine being happy all day, every day, but having read this book, I am going to try and give it a go. If Marcel can do it, so can I. This is a must read for anyone who has faced tough times, as well as those who are just interested. Recommended.

Unexpectedly this book is very Christian. As an atheist, this book does contain some useful information which makes it a pretty useful self help book. I also read the part about the spiritual world, and it provokes some thinking.
I received a free copy of this book through the Goodreads First Reads program. Thanks for sending me this book. I enjoyed reading it.

‘A book for believers or non-believers- and one that definitely targets those who believe that there is something more to life, or whatever goes beyond.’ ~ Marie-Christine Tayah

I’m not one to read books that focus on religion or spirituality, they’re just not my cup of tea, but I was drawn to this book because of a line in the synopsis. ‘-he woul

I won this book from a Goodreads giveaway. The book recounts the author's journey to a more positive, happy and faith-filled life. It is a motivating and uplifting book with many examples of how he has become happier and what we can all do in our everyday lives in order to be happier and make others happy as well as feel more fulfilled. He gives some great tips such as the "Ask, believe, receive" idea and how to break undesirable bahaviours. It's an overall enjoyable read about doing good and th ...more

This is designed to be a self-help book, using the experiences of the author who decided that he would like to achieve the goal of being happy in his life and leave a legacy of happiness. He wishes to share his journey so that others may benefit and try similar techniques as he has used and found helpful in achieving his goal. It is written from a Christian perspective and he proposes that if one “asks and believes” then one will “receive” and he encourages people to embrace peace and positivity ...more

As a Muslim, I read a lot of self enriching books and most of them were for Norman Vincent Peale who happens to be my best Author... Norman used to be a Christian pastor but in his books he focused on life lessons and the messages that he wanted to deliver to the reader, he mentioned Christianity but not for whole chapters about it.
In this book for some reason, I felt uncomfortable reading some of the chapters and I lost my interest because my intention was to see the point of view, the legacy

I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway - I wouldn't usually choose to read a self help book and I admit that this took me a long time - I started and stopped quite a few times! At first I thought it would be 'ask and you shall be given' - a little like the cosmic ordering recommended by Noel Edmonds but in fact it turns out to be much more give thanks for the blessings you have. It does advocate prayer quite strongly which would not appeal to those who feel there is no deity to listen to p ...more

This book started off with some strong points and I really thought it was going to be a great but as the book continued it was soon revealed that to be happy all you need to do is put your trust in God. While I have religious beliefs I've found books like "The Secret" that Borgi dismisses have been much more helpful in serving as a life guide. This is Borgi's biography and anything else he has to say can be found any Sunday morning in church. I'd pass.

This is a self help book that touches briefly on a number of different and helpful topics.

However, the author lost me completely with the use of direct quotes - some several pages long - from other authors. These quotations were always cited and set off in italics.

I won this on Goodreads Giveaways.

This is definitely the first self-help book that I have read and I was curious about the content because I am very much an optimist. I resonated with a lot of the material and believe that if readers need to find a new positive perspective on life then this book is a good place to start.

Yay, a Goodreads giveaway book!!!
Firstly, I suppose I should tell you that I'm an atheist and I don't like preachy, self-help books (before you start going "well why did you get this book, then", let me remind you that I got this in a giveaway, and there was no blurb there to warn me). Atheists shouldn't read this book. Agnostics, maybe, but really not atheists. So if this review makes you want to call me a cynic, a non-believer, feel free to ignore this review and read this book anyway, because

I struggled with whether or not to write this review. The book was written in all sorts of good faith to help others find the contentment and happiness Marcel Borgi has achieved. Truly feel how much he wants all readers to succeed and be happy.

I am the wrong audience. I found the personal stories fell flat and seemed mostly self congratulatory. The narrative for me was all over the place, not organized in a way that encouraged me to keep reading. Like a conversation with a friend that is interru

Some usable ideas. I gained a few insights in part one of the book and I have used them daily since. The rest of the book was reiterating and reinforcing the first part of the book. So many quotes from other books that the publisher should have said it was written by Marcel Borgi et al.
