When faced with challenges and difficulties, it's easy to feel trapped--by our circumstances, our personal history and conditioning, and our daily struggle to change. But what if we could escape these trappings? With The Possibility Principle, Mel Schwartz emerges as one of the first psychotherapists to distill the basic premises of quantum theory into an empowering and pr ...more

I was fortunate enough to get an advanced copy of this book. I love to read books that open my eyes to a new way of thinking. This did more than that!

This book has enabled me to completely re-envision my relationship with myself and with others. As I take in the author's suggestions, I find my self-worth increasing as well as my confidence. I'm also able to communicate consciously and powerfully.

The Possibility Principle suggests that most of our problems come from how we view reality. That may

Sorry, I thought this was an interesting read, based on the topic, but it felt pretty much like a revision of things I already knew (science and psychology).

Thank you to the publishers for providing an ARC of this book through NetGalley.

A couple of weeks ago while browsing on NetGalley I came across The Possibility Principle: How Quantum Physics Can Improve the Way You Think, Live, and Love by Mel Schwartz.

I became intrigued by this title. Is there a relevance between quantum mechanics and psychotherapy? And how quantum mechanics can help us reach our full potential? I felt there was something interesting there. I asked for it and I spend the next two days reading it. It totally surprised me.

After a panic attack the psychothera

Full disclosure: I'm a sucker for self-improvement books. This amazing thesis on interconnectedness, quantum theory, and overcoming the stagnant habitual mind is the perfect manual for living.

At first I was concerned that the "science" part of this book would be a reach for me. It was no problem and very accessible. This book offers so much that I haven't read anywhere else. I can't begin to speak off all the benefits I've derived. Most important for me though was learning to get past fear and anxiety and pave a new path in my life. I'm on my way!

I received an e-copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I initially requested this book because the description intrigued me. The author's writing style is thoughtful, eloquent, and intellectual. I appreciate the use of metaphors, such as when he refers to wave collapses and how a person can make use of that moment for personal growth. This book is not about Law of Attraction teachings but rather focuses on our ability to change our views and release attachments to the s

I won this book in a giveaway. The title intrigued me so I tried to win it. I've read many non-fiction books on this topic so some of the advice and suggestions were not new. Having never studied any type of physics but being a geek, I wondered about the quantum physics connection. I enjoyed learning about quantum physics in the book. It is a geeky subject but presented in a way that is easy to understand. I always take notes when I read a non-fiction and there weren't too many ideas that were n ...more

I enjoyed the premise of this book. We haven't made the big leaps in many areas of our lives in line with the revelations quantum theories have provided over the last hundred years. The book didn't build on the premise for me. I understand the author is a therapist, but the constant referencing to his experiences with clients doesn't take this book forwards and could have been eliminated. I didn't feel the author built on the premise. I was left wanting more and it felt more like a 'how to be go ...more

I received an ARC from Goodreads to review. This author is very eloquent in his explanations as to the relationships between scientific theory and the failure of this system to overcome despair and anxiety. However, it was not new information to me. A mechanistic view of life is the problem with the healthcare system, and finding ways to relax and enjoy life varies for everyone. Some people enjoy going to a football game with 100,000 other people, and some people relax by playing video games, an ...more

I read the kindle addition. Then felt I needed the hard copy to allow me to find my highlights easier. I have been on a spree of learning about the mind, quantum physics, and relationships. This was complimentary to all the other books I have been reading and absorbing.

He has many fantastic, practical tips in the book. Not just case examples, but explanations to help you apply the techniques or consider your own head space. I am enjoying the hard copy so I can take extra notes on it.

An entirely new perspective on how to think. This book demands your full attention but the outcome makes the reader to re-evaluate his or her relationships. By welcoming uncertainty, we can overcome our fears and anxiety.

"Depression" is just a word. We've allowed this word to embody what it means when someone is "depressed." He or she is not "depressed" - rather - he or she exhibits behaviors that we now culturally identify as "depressed."

Highly recommend!

An amazingly thought provoking book that has helped me immensely, drawing together many threads of thinking that I have been circling for some time. Much to chew on, much to learn from. Highly recommended!!
