This book featuring Debbie Ford, Deepak Chopra and Marianne Williamson evolved out of the movie "The Shadow Effect: Illuminating the Hidden Power of Your True Self" that recently brought the three of them together. While the movie serves as an introduction to the concepts of the shadow and how it limits us as human beings, The Shadow Effect book is a deep exploration of that which most of us have hidden and tried to contain within ourselves. Of the three authors, Ford contributes the most clarity and definition to what the shadow is and how it shows up in our lives. But all share equally valuable information and insightes from their unique perspectives, offering a depth of experience and wisdom on this most vital of topics. Reading this book is both challenging and enlightening. It can be depressing as we learn the truth of who we are, yet hopeful as we discover the power that the comes from healing and integrating the Shadow. This is a must read for anyone committed to supporting a shift in consciousness on the planet.

The premise for this book is so short and simple the author's found they needed to expound on every tiny concept ad nauseum to justify the $12.99 price tag. I tried to read it from the beginning but could not get through the Deepak Chopra part due to its lack of substance so I skipped to the Debbie Ford chapter thinking that I might actually get to some "meat",if you will, since she is the one who "officially" developed and lectures on the Shadow Effect. Unfortunately every time she came up with some "new" premise about the Shadow she was so repetitive it was hard not to feel bored.

There may in fact be some good ideas here, I, unfortunatley could not find any reason to scour through every repetitive concept to get to it. Also, the use of The Shadow over and over and over also felt very schticky, like there was some monster lurking ready devour our spirit any second.
