I love Louise Hay so much but I think this book was my least favourite of her work that I've read so far. Maybe it's because I've been reading what she has to say for a long period of time and simply I felt like this book had nothing new to offer me. Still, it can be a good start for the beginners.

I love this book. This is my favorite book ever. I am a huge fan of all of Louise Hay's thoughts and philosophies. But this book in particular was the most influential, as it describes all phases of life. It includes insight about health, relationships, love, work life, aging, death and many other things. Views about all these are really great and makes you think about them differently (only positively, of course!).

This a good follow up book after You Can Heal Your Life.
I will cherish this book

This book is one written in her later years and reflects a life well lived. Near the beginning Louise tells about her difficult early life and how she learned to overcome the past. Much of the book is affirmations grouped together around a topic. One I particularly liked was: Each problem has a solution. All experiences are opportunities for me to learn and grow; I am safe. Louise Hay is a wise woman with a positive message.

Inspirational, I have kept this book as it is great to refer back to. I photocopied particularly relevant pieces to keep next to my bed and typed up the affirmations to show my students and refer to in my lessons.
This is a great follow on from her book 'You can heal your life' which I read first and I do believe was instrumental in changing my life.

This is a nice mix...not my favorite from Louise. But in my heart she can do no wrong.

الممتع هو بساطة اسلوب الكتابة للويز هاي
لكن الكتاب كان مختصر للكتب التي قراتها لها من قبل
