Imagination is a core aspect of being human. Our imagination allows us to fully experience ourselves in relation to the world and reality. Since the 17th century, however, imagination has been sidelined and dismissed as "make believe". Four centuries ago, a new way of knowing the world and ourselves emerged in the west and has gone on to dominate human life: science. Imagination has been marginalized - depicted as a way of escaping reality, rather than coming to grips with it - and its significance to our humanity has been downplayed.

Great thesis of thought

More than food for thought. Validity of arguements on why we have imagination and the effect of its current lack of use. The reader sounds a little robotic at first...bear with...the content of the book is worth hanging into there!

What would you do if you were sitting quietly in your living room when a mysterious couple suddenly appeared from out of nowhere, and then told you they were "ascended masters" who had come to reveal some shocking secrects of existence and teach you the miraculous power of advanced forgiveness? Would you call the cops? Call a psychiatrist? Call out for pizza?

Unusual book since it comes from an ordinary man who would be fun to hang out with. No guru stuff. Simple, honest, revelatory.

It takes courage to listen to this book, because there is no gloss or spin on who and what you think you are or the life you lead. Time to know,understand and act on your responsibilities...This book makes you wake/grow up by courageous choice...a choice which has always been yours alone.

With his infectious energy and charisma, Gok Wan has an incredible gift of making women feel more confident within themselves - but it’s not until you read his own inspirational story that you find out where he got that gift from. Gok grew up on a Leicester housing estate, with a loving family who ran a Chinese restaurant. For his parents, food meant love – and Gok was so well loved that by the time he was a teenager he weighed 21 stone. Being Asian and gay as well, Gok felt lonely and out of place.

'Through Thick and Thin' by Gok Wan

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 15-01-11

I was a bit sceptical at first despite loving his show 'Fashion Fix'. But Gok comes across as very warm, genuine and moving. Worth every penny and would definately recommend.
