    Propaganda!!! Why is this book littered with the scare tactics we're warned against? The propaganda we're told to look out for? C'mon!

    Okay, if you haven't already figured out that fear is the cause of so many of our problems, and the hows and whys of this, you might get something out of this book. If you're a Christian, depending on what brand of Christian you are, you might find this book anywhere from annoying to offensive. Also annoying would be the vast majority of the footnotes, especially in the Nook Book version. A bad move, in my opinion. The "these economic times" tagline has been done to death. Let it die already!

    I should state that this is the first book I've read by Hill. As for the theories or perspective presented in the book, it's rather sloppy. However, this might be an amazing read if you haven't already come to the realizations made here. It's the sort of book I would recommend to lots of people, if it didn't come off as being completely crazy. I was honestly captured in the beginning as one who could somewhat relate to author's accounts of his "other self", but not in a padded room sort of way. As it got to the conversation with the "Devil", I found this book to be a difficult read. I didn't appreciate the repetition, for one.

    It became so bad that I started reading Letcher's footnotes. While this is an interesting read, it also classifies as WEIRD so be prepared. Don't read this as a self-help book, whatever you do. Don't read it expecting *it* to change your life. SAM333 should have left an email address so people could cash in on his guarantee! Read it with an open and objective mind, and a critical eye. Many might find this book very helpful if read in the right way. I give it 4 stars because I think it was a good reminder of somethings I already knew. As well, it made me stop to think about a few things. Apart from being annoyed by the repetition, it's a book that you want to keep reading. It leaves you curious about what point will be presented next. It's one of those books that you should read more than once to get the most out of it. While it's interesting to me, I only know 2 people who might also find it interesting.
