Recommended for: no one

Complete drivel. There is benefit in positive thinking, but this book encourages "magical thinking." If you want and plan for a desired object or outcome, the forces of the universe will align to make that happen for you.

The logic offered as to why you don't always get what you hope for is that subconsciously you feared you would not get that thing, therefore undermined the power of earth's forces to bring you what you want. In otherwords, if things don't work well for you, it is your own fault AND the earth's forces probably wanted the poor outcome for you. So, you can never plan for a rainy day, because planning is asking for the rainy day.

Don't waste your time. My husband says "It's no secret that this book was not very good or helpful."

Mongol Well put - Magical Thinking. A lot of reviewers can't seem to make the distinction.
