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.

Sounded iffy from the off

If you’re looking for cod mysticism wrapped up in pseudoscientific gibberish, this is the book for you. Teeth started itching during the horribly overlong intro (apparently aimed at the level of a small but credulous child), but when he uses wave particle duality as evidence the we can master our futures and shape them exactly as we’d like, well, “that’s all folks” as they used to say on Looney Toons…

Amazing

I have read loads of book on the law of attraction this by far is the best. If you struggle with abstract concepts and putting them into action this book will help. Truly life changing.

Quantum nonsense

There's a few good ideas for meditation practices, somewhere in there, but so much of this book is fluff and nonsense. That's just not how "quantum" or genes work.

If you got it, skip directly to section 3, and go fast

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.

The book is fantastic but it’s read by a robot

I’m pissed off with this book because the content is fabulous but the narrating voice is so off putting and monotone , it sounds like a robot from the 1990s. A waste of money I’m going to buy this on kindle and read it because the audio is shocking.
