Overview

For many years, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s fans have wondered when he would write a memoir. Well, after four decades as a teacher of self-empowerment and the best-selling author of more than 40 books, Wayne has finally done just that! However, he has written it in a way that only he can—with a remarkable take-home message for his longtime followers and new readers alike—and the result is an exciting new twist on the old format. Rather than a plain old memoir, Wayne has gathered together quantum-moment recollections.

In this revealing and engaging book, Wayne shares dozens of events from his life, from the time he was a little boy in Detroit up to present day. In unflinching detail, he relates his vivid impressions of encountering many forks in the road, taking readers with him into these formative experiences. Yet then he views the events from his current perspective, noting what lessons he ultimately learned, as well as how he has made the resulting wisdom available to millions via his lifelong dedication to service.

As a reader, you will feel as if you are right there with Wayne, perusing his personal photo album and hearing about his family, his time in the service, how he writes his best-selling books, and so much more. In the process, you’ll be inspired to look back at your own life to see how everything you have experienced has led you to where you are right now.

Wayne has discovered that there are no accidents. Although we may not be aware of who or what is “moving the checkers,” life has a purpose, and each step of our journey has something to teach us. As he says, “I wasn’t aware of all of the future implications that these early experiences were to offer me. Now, from a position of being able to see much more clearly, I know that every single encounter, every challenge, and every situation are all spectacular threads in the tapestry that represents and defines my life, and I am deeply grateful for all of it.”

I Can See Clearly Now is an intimate look at an amazing teacher, but it also holds the key for seekers on a personal path of enlightenment. Wayne offers up his own life as an example of how we can all recognize the hand of the Divine steering our individual courses, helping us accomplish the mission we came here to fulfill.

A self-help guru's reflections on how he became who he is. Self-empowerment is one key to success in life, and nowhere is this more evident than in Dyer's (21 Days to Master Success and Inner Peace, 2012, etc.) rich unfolding of his life stories. From some of his earliest childhood memories in the early 1940s to the present, Dyer takes readers on a nearly year-by-year trip through the events in his life that led him to write more than 40 books and undertake other projects related to self-development. Each action, he writes, often directed by a divine force, put him one step further on the path of becoming the man he knew he was meant to become. For years, he questioned the people and books influencing him, but he continued to follow an inner knowledge that connected him spiritually and emotionally to the world around him. Dyer writes, "It no longer takes years for me to have this insight--everything and everyone are connected to each other and to the Tao or the universal one mind from which all things originate and return." Dyer addresses the fears and setbacks that he encountered along the way, including the need to find his absentee father, whose abandonment filled Dyer with anger for years. Only at his gravesite was the author able to forgive the man and "[cleanse his] soul of the toxicity that living with internal rage brings." Every emotional experience was another pivot point for Dyer, and from them, he produced his best-selling books, audiotapes and lectures. The author's reflections on the twists and turns of his authentic life reveal the power inherent in each of us to have the same joyful existence, though many of his pronouncements may be too far out there for many readers--e.g., "There is no time; 1968 and 2018 are all one, even though our body-mind sees them as separated by 50 years." For devotees of both Dyer and self-help books, an inspirational account of the essence of the man behind Your Erroneous Zones and other self-help titles.

    A Treat for Fans, Insightful, Enjoyable

    As a died-in-the-wool materialist and agnostic I sit at odds with Dyer on the most fundamental level yet he has been a guilty pleasure of mine for some thirty years. Never once – really – have I read his words, heard him speak, or seen him interviewed when I didn’t come away with fresh insights about how to live a higher life, a more authentic life, and a life of deep questioning. This sense – for me – of his ability to transcend barriers and labels with his wisdom is the highest testament I can offer. He comes across, always, as someone who believes more in you than you have ever believed in yourself.

    I first met Dyer years ago while exploring my Erroneous Zones. Once over the disappointment of learning that I had misread the title of his little book – I was a college kid looking for insights into those other kinds of ‘zones’ – I kept reading. I remember little about it except for a brief comment on sleep and waking up early. How, Dyer asked, have we come to see waking early as a label of success and worth and drive? Why in the world would we measure a human being by what time they rise from bed? I still think about it. And these few paragraphs in a now classic book capture the essential Dyer: he never gives an answer. I’m not sure if he is even interested in answers. He simply asks that you think and that you live a life based on your own investigation rather than following what has been laid out for you as important. This is by far the most important and enduring life lesson that I’ve learned from Dyer.

    In I Can See Clearly Now Dyer offers up a biography of his experiences. Many readers will be interested to read about his health and illness issues and his relationships and he lightly dissects them here. He is self-effacing and I sense no care whatsoever to maintain a guru’s image. The book focuses primarily on his earlier years – maybe health and divorce are of less interest to him? Whereas it’s common for people who write biographies to spend their last days wrestling with the whys and hows of their past Dyer does little of that. He’s done the mental heavy lifting all along and leaves much of it out and I think the book lacks something for it. I would be interested to see more of the mental and spiritual machinations that lead him to where he has settled today. For those interested, though, much of that thinking is worked out in his other books. The prose is just what you would expect: very readable, very accessible, and very heavily spiced with spirit. There is a strong sense that Dyer has discovered something and he is unabashedly happy to share it with anyone who will sit and talk. He makes no arguments and I don’t expect the book will make any converts to his way of thinking. But for anyone who has read and followed this wise man over the years to book will provide hours of insights and enjoyment.

    I am a longtime fan of Dr. Dyer. I really enjoyed this memoir. It’s written in an unconventional style – not only presenting the facts of life changing moments in his life, but adding the wisdom and reflection of present day analysis. It is extremely well written and a joy to read.

    Must Read

    I had seen the show on PBS but reading the book is Amazing. I had always thought I was the only one who believed that being nice or caring regardless of bad or good treatment or situation made me weird and vulnerable but I can clearly see now it was Divine strength to take me on a deeper relationship with people and myself. I'm not alone! Love Dr. W. W. Dyer, write on!!!

    First I would like to say that I am a big Wayne Dyer fan and have seen him in person and read most of his books and seen him on public TV. That said, this book reads like it was written by a person with a different persona than the Wayne Dyer as I have known him. I am halfway through the book but I am seeing consistent troubling issues with it.

    Perhaps Wayne Dyer's primary teaching in recent years has been to get out of the control of the ego. Well in this book, Wayne portrays himself as heroic in every aspect of his life, including his actions as a one or two year old. Everything Wayne tells us he did is of a virtuous nature in every chapter. While portraying himself that way, he is sure to subtly criticize others who have a different viewpoint and gives a very obvious perception that he feels himself superior to those who conform to societal norms.

    Another frequent teaching of Dr. Dyer is that when faced with a choice of being right or being kind, always choose kindness. He didn't live up to that in this book. For example, in his chapters on his years as a professor he tells us he co-authored some textbooks with another professor. He then identifies that co-author by name, disparages his failure to work on one text, and then publicly identifies that professor as a heavy drinker. Dr. Dyer, how is that coming out of position of kindness? I as a reader do not need to know this man you portray as an alcoholic by name. Simply saying his co-author did not do his part on that textbook would have sufficed, and if Dr. Dyer felt the need to give his assumed reason for his co-author's failures (an assumption by Dr. Dyer, not necessarily a fact), he certainly did not have to shame him and any family he might have by naming him.

    Another issue I have with Dr. Dyer is his somewhat critical comments on people such as Napoleon Hill and Dr. Norman Vincent Peale. Dr. Dyer (like many authors) has "borrowed" heavily from these self-help pioneers. To treat them with a condescending attitude like Dr. Dyer does in this book is not appropriate. Clearly Dr. Dyer owes a debt of gratitude for these and other "new thought" authors.

    Finally, I do recommend the book as it is an interesting read. However, the kind, gentle, loving Wayne Dyer I have come to know from his other books and TV appearances did not seem to write this book. There is way too much ego in this book and every chapter seems to be about proving Dr. Dyer's moral superiority over many other people in his life who had a different philosophy or lifestyle. I have to ask, is the Wayne Dyer in this book the real Wayne Dyer? Or is the real Wayne Dyer the man who would always choose kindness over being right?

    Excellent

    This is a life review that resonates strongly. Dr. Dyer puts together the pieces of his life with mature hindsight. This allows others to do the same, and helps with spiritual growth. He encourages his readers to do the same, and I will. He is always an inspiring writer, and what I appreciate so much is the quality of his writing, as well as the content. I look forward to his next book.
