An exceptional spiritual book empowering and you experience a learning curve when you read this book. Enlightenment, psychology, human behaviour and life in general. This book touches on everything, and that by raising our level of consciousness our thoughts and influences add to our life power. It you want to know and learn about self this this is the book for you.

Do you want to know the truth? Not the supposed truth but a real to goodness TRUTH. The book explains it and tells how to use it for your own enlightened life.

The concepts were interesting but I ended up scanning through many pages until something looked interesting. If I want to read something this heavy I'll go back to college and get a masters in philosophy.

I loved the book, and used it as a book of answers to questions I had on business, the quantitative nature of enlightenment, and how that can correlate with where we are as an individual. The only issue that I had, which is why I gave it 4 stars, is that there were some issues I had on the calibration component and its measurement. I think it might be possible to test someone's level of enlightenment by touch, but the way that it was presented, it was not completely convincing. Generally though, I believe that it was a fantastic book with great insight, and the ability to move you to a higher level of consciousness about the world around you and how you are interacting with it.

Amazing book. Amazing minds that can write it or read it. Plow through the first part and once that foundation is laid, you will resist setting down the book. It changed my life. Changed my thinking. I read it for the first time 10 years ago and am rereading it on my nook.
