I can't give this 1 star

I bought this book after listening to Dr. Dispenza do an interview about meditation practices. I REALLY liked the way he described changing the present you and taking control of your thoughts to create the life you envision. I've heard many different people tackle this idea, and in that interview he nailed it for me. Additionally, the audio quality and reading of this book are great. That being said, I couldn't make it through more than the first hour of this book. I wish that Dr Dispenza didn't try to "prove" everything by claiming it is scientific and related to the quantum realm. The world's leading scientists in quantum mechanics all seem to agree that we barely understand anything about it, and yet Dr Dispenza writes as though he has mastery over it, and that we can learn how to master it too. It seems to be an argument from ignorance, whereby he has taken the correlation of certain outcomes and their connection with people believing they can influence the quantum realm, and decided this is evidence enough that the quantum realm caused these outcomes. Correlation does not imply causation. With millions of people following his teachings, I can see how it would be easy to find a few cases that align by chance, thereby supporting his theory, and ignore the much larger majority that don't fit the narrative. I can't give this book one star, because I truly believe that many of the principles and ideals of this book can be life changing, and that the overall story being told is incredibly useful. However, I wish he didn't feel the need to package everything up using quantum science - it is like he has searched for something that we cannot yet explain or understand, and used it as if it were unequivocal evidence of the ideas he champions. Of course we can't prove him wrong - we don't fully understand it either - but I wish he would be transparent enough to admit that he doesn't either. The teachings in his books are enough on their own, they would still be just as fantastic without their quantum science explanation. If you read this review and completely disagree with me, then this book will likely be great for you, and I think you will love it. If however, like me, you like the central themes of changing yourself and becoming a better version of yourself, but don't buy into the quantum science explanation, then this book is definitely not for you, and will be a wasted purchase.

Incredible Book that will change your life

This book helped me to become aware of automatic patterns of behaviour and negative thoughts that were holding me back. I was then able to reprogram my mind and instead focus on how I want my life to be in the future. You must be open minded and believe in the law of attraction / meditation / energy & Focus etc for this book to really impact you and change your life for the better. Dr Joe is an expert in the field.

I found it boring and tedious.

If you want to know how the brain works then it’s fine. But this book is tedious and takes hours to get to the point.

Wonderfully laid out

This book is something else, wonderfully and logically laid out going into the science of quantum mechanics, to the science of the body and chemistry of the mind and how the environment, body and mind all exist in relation to eachother. Stringing together this information in this way will help you become the true self you've always known yourself to be.

very disappointed with the Narrator

I was looking forward to this book. but even five minutes and I knew I couldn't enjoy it because of the person reading it. I am so very disappointed. I love dr. Joe dispenza and all of his work but I just can't abide this

Building on the works off Dr. Bruce Lipton, and others in the space

Overall, if you have been in this space and are familiar with self growth, there is nothing new and it’s packaged with his variations that you could probably pick up on YouTube as well. Little bit longer than is necessary and some chapters but someone new, it may be more enjoyable.

Life Changing

After listening to the entire book and practicing Dr. Joe’s meditation, I noticed a difference in my thoughts and behaviors after the first meditation. There are several events that happened in my life which seem miraculous that I now understand I brought them to fruition through my thoughts and unwavering belief in what the outcome would be.

Good info but author is long winded

This book could benefit from at least 100 pages removed which would probably make the audio book 2-3 hours less. The author is busy showing off his knowledge and this causes the reader(listener) to have to SWIM through the information to find the needed text to actually help you break the habit of being yourself. I found it beneficial to get a copy of the book verses listening only.

Missing the guided meditations from the book

I bought this after reading the book so I could have an audio version of the step by step, guided meditations included in the appendix of the book. These were not included! How could they have left out that part?! Also, the narrator was not my style. Slow talker and had a bit of a snarky tone.

Helpful

A friend recommended this book to me and I’m so glad I read it! It’s insightful on how we do have control Over our thoughts. I recommend it to anyone on a self discovery journey or just trying to be a better human. The only thing I wish was different is if I could see all the diagrams he refers to as he’s reading.

terrible

Mixing Quantum Mechanics with self help books is sketchy, still, I thought I'd give it a try. I couldn't get through chapter one even. Implying that a randomized trial about the effect of prayer gave a nonstatistical improved results in sepsis is a powerful result is where I just couldn't take it any more.

A doorway into a new life

Dr. Dispenza has a great gift for the open minded. A way out of the rat race that modern life has become, a way out of the frustration and dissatisfaction suffered by people from all walks of life, from young to old, from poor to rich. And his method is supported by science, so he brings an objective side to the ancient abstract methods. If you want to improve anything in your life you have to give this book a try.
