review 1: I agree with previous reviewers who said (paraphrased)--"Yes, but the point is that someone who is emotionally stuck doesn't know how to do what this author suggests." I did get that vibe from this book more than once and it was one of the reasons it made it to my "didn't finish wall of shame" list. Yet that doesn't make the content unusable. The author is a practicing psychiatrist who, from my reading, knows that what she's describing takes time and is a lifelong process. Sometimes the best value of a book is as a primer. It may not change drastically change my life right away, but as it marinates in the back of my mind... Maybe that's where all the magic happens anyway--in the background where I don't THINK. (smiles) If today is mostly better than yesterday, I call... more that A Win.PS Added 12/6/2012: The early section on dreaming and especially "how to sleep well," were very well done. She gave sleep a flavor and it is delicious!
review 2: I thought this book was a great resource for dealing with negative energy in your own life and those around you. She's very insightful! However I did find it difficult to get through all her long personal stories on each issue...to which there were many! I found myself skipping to the more important points. All in all I enjoyed it but would have enjoyed it more if it was half the size. Cut the crap! less

Waste of money in my opinion. I am sick of New Age crap. Been there it didn't help at all.
Good idea, but the author is so long-winded!
It basically tells you to meditate.
