To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This book states common sense perspectives that we have read in other places by other authors. It's pretty common sense but does require some written work. Be prepared for that if you have never done the written work before to garner your own insight.
the item I received did not look like this. It was an older version of this book. I'm keeping it because it's still the book but I was unhappy to see the publish date of 1990. What I've read of the book so far has been amazingly good though.
Louise Hay's writing has been around for a very long time. So long that some New Agers repeat things that she said 30 years ago as if it is some proven truth - one example is the idea that you choose your own parents before you come to this life. That's not a fact, people. That's an idea that people latched onto because it makes them feel better. Another is that anyone can heal themselves and that all illness comes from your thoughts. I'm sure the five-year-olds dying of leukemia, etc did not cause their own illness from their thoughts. Yet because she was saying this back in the day, it has evolved into a tenet in New Age thinking. Louise had cancer and spontanteously recovered. Because this happened for her, she has made a lot of money telling other people that they can do the same. Maybe some of them can, and if you know nothing about how your thoughts affect your physical body, this book might give you some insight. Just remember that what she says is her opinion, not fact.
