Must read ... Don't read further reviews just buy it and if u had seen Sadhguru all video in YouTube , I suggest u not to buy ... It's all copy from his speeches but I like his speeches so much that I can't resist myself buying this Beautiful book... I read it again n again. --ByJOYon 12 September 2017
I thought engineering is only related to physical world bcoz I an automobile engineer, but Sadhguru revealed another dimension so that engineering can be applied to our own body, i feel proud to be an Indian bcoz this inner engineering technology has been born here since ages, Sdhguru he himself is a reminder for us to go back and re-engineer ourselves. Excellent book. --ByAmazon Customer on 4 August 2017 --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

For me many things were understood.
I'm mentioning just a few here.
The book is in two parts, the first is more of theory about Sadhguru himself, what well-being is, what responsibility is and what it is not, and what yoga is. Through these chapters many concepts are broken down and redefined for me. This part of the book sets the foundation for the second half of the book - the more practical aspect.
In the second half, Sadhguru explains the body, mind, our energy in fair amount of detail, but in a simple and witty manner, I was just flowing with it!
What struck me most was how we as humans have focused so much on our discerning intellect (which divide, categorizes, and dissects), that it's expression is found in the way we as a society discriminate, divide, and dissect almost everything; the most painful one according to me being the division of people into various groups which are then discriminated against.
In this second half, Sadhguru gives us many Sadhanas (or tools or practices) that we can do. Even if we choose one of these and practise in a consistent manner, it will be very beneficial for one's well-being.
Finally, the line which summarizes Sadhguru's message, according to me is this: "Yoga is not about being superhuman; it's about realizing that being human is super". This beautiful sentence encapsulates the message what we as healers do our best to spread among all that we come across.
I highly recommend this book to you all, it is a very good primer to start your journey of going within.
If this make any change in you. Vote "Helpful" & I may come with another reviews.
5/5 rating for Amazon delivery and the page print quality...
Sadhguru talks about three important things which controls our thoughts and emotions in life... Those are *Body, *Mind, & *Energy...
*Body : Sadhguru says...
Body is the only thing that is visible and can easily controlled... Every human being has 5 senses i.e., 1) Touch, 2) Sight, 3) hearing, 4) Taste, and 5) Smell... If these 5 senses stops working then it is hard for one to realize actually what and who you are... So, these 5 senses plays a important role in life... and hence one should maintain them very well...
one must gain focus & control over these senses or else it will impact on one's Mind and Energy...
*Mind : Sadhguru says...
(Sadhguru) Shares and very interesting and funny story of A man wants to acquire Supernatural powers from a Spiritual guru... (pl. read the book for the story)
What ever you input to your brain the same output it gives... if you input positive thoughts only positive will be outcome... and vice versa...
*Energy : Sadhguru says...
If one uses energy in right direction it gives benefit and if one uses it in wrong direction one will suffer... Here Sadhguru treated Energy as Karma... and said If one do good to others the same will return to him/her... and vice versa...
The best part of the book is in Sadhana : A small exercise which helps one to do meditation... and there are bunch of sadhanas shared in this book...
My thoughts : If you are a follower of Sadhguru, then you like this book, If you are not, then I don't recommend this book to you... (Now this is totally subjective), Because at the last chapter Sadhguru talks about occult powers which I personally Didn't like, apart from that, this book is OK and pl. don't buy this book with full expectations... you may get disappointed).
I don't recommend this book to every one but only to sadhguru followers... and do recommend following books to read...
* Life's Amazing secrets - Gaur Gopal Das
* The power of Now - Eckhart Tolle
* Think and grow rich - Napoleon Hill
* The power of subconscious mind - Joseph Murphy
* Jonathan Livingston seagull - Richard Bach
This is the book which you might have to read again and again to understand it more profoundly. This is the book that will stay with you.
- When I started reading thought will finish it within a week but it actually took me almost a month as it has enriched knowledge.
- It's written in a simple and understandable way.
- I really enjoyed the sense of humour which makes reading enjoyable.
- At the end the most important part is the "Sadhana" ( It's actually life changing if one impliment it)

Also, lol at that guy Andrew who is totally trolling the 1 star section. Most of the replies on his 1 star review is him writing essays to himself or others on how much he hates the book, over and over again. He REALLY hates Sadhguru.
It’s an enlightening read. I don’t want to say too much about this book, except that’s it’s well worthy of a read...
Anyone can read it as everything is explained in detail, with powerful metaphors at times, and you never feel lost.
