Bought this book 3 days ago and just finished it. If there is a key to happiness, life, goals, etc. it is in this book. The subconscious is a powerful friend that I feel everyone should read about. :)

One of the best books I read on subconscious mind and its abilities. This book extends the ideas presented by Maxwell Maltz in his book Psycho-Cybernetics.
The author forewarns that most of the book contents are copies of other persons material. I did find that MANY pages could have been eliminated; each lesson ends with a lengthy description (what one should perhaps read)of what to suggest/tell your subconscious mind whilst in the Alpha state. I didn't like treating the subconscious as a "person"...thanking it, praising it, etc. I did like the fact that I didn't have to read the last was on prayer.

I was able to pick up a few ideas and
Best book I've read in the whole "The Secret" genre. ...more

One of the best explained books on how subconscious mind works. Very interesting and very true. I was quite surprised by results after trying some of the exercises.

This is one of those rare books which delivers what the title is saying: this book is about the subconscious and how you can use it. I think it's very humble of him to say all the information in the book is not new and that's probably true but he delivers it in such a way I still found a few nuggets. The chapters are easy to read and you will probably finish the book faster than expected. For those who read books like the secret and other popular LOA books, this one continues on what a lot of ot ...more

I like how they made it so affordable so a lot of people can read it, and it is made short so it’ll not be overwhelming to readers’ minds (because the contents and ideas are). The key to living the life you want is in this book, but reading and knowing the ideas of this book is not enough, you have to dig in and take action. You have to know what to do, make practices and plans, change habits etc.
Might look and sound cheesy but it was very well done. I liked reading because the author has had a lifelong passion for understanding his field. He seems to have a knack at presenting the information in a way that promotes retention-go figure. He often sounded like an excited kid which might be lame to some but came across as endearing to me.

This is an interactive book that requires a small time commitment to do the exercises. While I did find some real benefits and deep truths, there was also a fair amount of what I considered wishful thinking. Maybe I'm just not doing it right ... Anyway, despite that, I did like this book very much. ...more

Everything it said it would do

I am reading several of these law of attraction books at one time but this is the first one I started and by far the most informative of the bunch I am still working through. I have started using these laws and I have made major positive changes in my life. I highly recommend this book. I will revisit my notes often, I am sure.

A Wealth of Valuable Information

Loved this little book. It demonstrated the incredible powers of the subconscious mind and how to tap into those powers. Easy to comprehend, I have already started applying the many techniques in the book to my life.

Best book to exist

Most helpful and best book i’ve ever read, and will ever read. There’s no fluff, just straight up information written in a very clear and easy to read and apply fashion. Information to revolutionize your life. If you only ever read 1 book in life, this should be it.
Absolutely Gem of a Book

The writing style is very simple and easy to follow for the average joe like me. The concepts presented are very relatable, especially when compared to anecdotal experiences ; everything makes sense. Highly recommended if you want to have a better understanding and unlock the potential of your mind.

Very helpful.... Triggers are simply amazing. Would definitely recommend to all those seeking better harmony with their minds

The chapters are well organized to take you step by step on how to use the practices. Thanks to the Author for such an amazing guide

Very well presented information about how the mind works and what we can do to improve communication with ourselves and improve our lives. I recommend purchasing the mp3 recordings to make the process a bit easier on yourself.

Simple and easy to understand. I love reading books about this topic, this one does a really
good job explaining how the subconscious mind works. And not only that, but
it teaches you how to "work with it". Very interesting.

Truly life-changing text. Believe me when I say this stuff is real. Of course, nothing I say can convince you. It’s just something you have to experience for yourself.

Amazing summary

You could study all the magic books in the world or you can summarize all of them with this one book! This book is amazing and I thank you. LPM

The Genie Within is a book with a great concept if you go in with an open mind. Not everyone is going to appreciate some of the things in the book or how they are presented, for example, prayer. The author also puts a lot of emphasis on hypnosis. Not only is it mentioned in many of the examples to back up his claims but he also gives self hypnosis passages for you to use yourself. Overall, the concepts covered are beneficial and if practiced will improve your life, your well being and your healt ...more

For the most part I am on board with the author's premise, but I think how he presents the material, sometimes made it hard to take it all seriously. I listened to the audiobook and the narrator didn't help by any means, it was obnoxious to have to hear the narrator try to use a hypnotist voice and carry on with "relax... you are feeling very relaxed... your toes are relaxed, oh so relaxed, you just love how relaxed your toes feel, oh soooo reeeelaaxed, oh it feels sooooo good to have the toes f ...more
The genie grants you wishes when 1) you are aware of its existence 2) you take the time to learn how it functions 3) you invest in improving your communication with it. // Two stars for the writing style which kills me inside. Also the “self talk prep talks” at the end of the chapters were WAY WAY too much for me. I’ll get back to it in a month or so to reread the key points and monitor my progress on self-discovery.
