    A true gift to mankind

    This book was the foundation of my own spiritual awakening and development. The CORRECT application of Dr. Hawkins¿ consciousness research technique provides the humble reader with a remarkably sound method of discerning truth from falsehood, such as separating the fallacious teachers (regardless of their appeal, glamorization or even ¿celebrity status¿) from those that truly provide spiritual guidance with the utmost integrity, love and compassion. Furthermore, readers (that are earnestly) seeking truth realize an expanded level of consciousness and a significant leap in spiritual development, as well as a greater understanding of ordinary yet often confusing human behavior. However, readers that are absorbed in narcissism and therefore trapped within the confines of their own egos will probably become irritated at their own inability to accurately use consciousness research. It is not for everyone, as not everyone is earnestly seeking truth. The spiritual devotee awakens upon reading Power vs. Force. This is a tremendous opportunity in learning to assess the truth of anything, and Dr. Hawkins clearly explains the simple technique and why it works.

    A life changing read

    David Hawkins has poured a lifetime of learning into this book. Although I needed a dictionary, and referred to it 3 and sometimes 4 times a page while I was reading, I closed the book with the knowledge that I had learned something which would change my life. This book is a must for 'spiritual seekers'. It has given me a sense of direction and now I'm afraid that the next book I read will be a disappointment!! Congratulations and many thanks to Mr. Hawkins.

    Cannot recommend

    His approach is interesting. His levels of emotions are helpful. He makes basic assumptions for his testing to work. If a result does not fit his assumptions then he disregards the results which skews the true value. While his theory is interesting his approach lacks integrity.

    One of those books like "Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking" & "The Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science" in that I will always keep a copy handy.

    If you are drawn to this book and have experience discerning the various patterns inherent in non-linear dynamics', it will change everything. If you areba tool, then you will see pseudo science and snake oil. One must Fool the Emperor to cross the Ocean. (36 strategems)

    This book certainely influenced the way that I look at life. Dr. Hawkin's also wrote many books to follow, which take an open mind and some serious reflection. I enjoyed and learned something of value from them all.

    Garbage

    The book attempts to justify its contents on the basis of a non-science of called applied kinesiology. Well I tested in at 1000 thus I must be correct. Garbage! The man is a huckster that would make even PT Barnum cringe.
