I wish I read more reviews before purchasing this, rather than just looking at the overall high rating. I made it about halfway through this book and could not continue on. The author is oblivious about many real life things, one of them being depression. She wrote, “If you’re depressed, just act like someone who isn’t depressed.” How would a depressed person know what that is like? Depression is a real illness, like cancer. It is like saying, “If you are chronically ill, just act like someone who isn’t chronically ill”.Depression is something to be taken very seriously. Some people battle it their whole lives while others have to deal with it long-term, and some seasonally, but it is not the same as feeling sad for a bit. It concerns me even more deeply that this is a best selling book and people who read this may begin to believe that depression is an act or a choice or a ‘story’ as the author would call it. Our society truly does not understand this condition or support people who are suffering with it.There are over 50,000+ books on Amazon helping people who have depression. This is not one of them. I absolutely do not recommend reading this book if you struggle with depression. I also do not recommend it in general as I gleaned nothing useful from the first half of the book. I’d return this if I could.
I was really excited about this book. I’ve read my share of witty, in your face, self help books before but this one does it all WRONG. The author’s perspective is incredibly privileged and there’s a point about mid way through where she says “if you’re depressed, just act like someone who isn’t depressed”. While I do think the idea of manifesting what you want through positive thinking is great, this book isn’t the first to suggest it. Overall the author seems out of touch, the books is potentially triggering, and I would not recommend it.
I have to commend Jen Sincero for putting her on spin on the whole LOA thing and making some money off it, or at least making some money off me. Because no one forced me to buy this book. Everything in this book, I PROMISE YOU, can be found for free on the internet, just without the sassy, pseudo punk-rocky demeanor that is really the selling point of this thing. Following one of the main points of this book, I take full responsibility for wasting time and money on reading this pile of hoo-hah.
Hard to read. Writer has a condescending tone throughout. Tried to read book from different chapters and just could not read it. Have read dozens of self-help books during my life, but this one is not recommended.
I felt a little silly reading about “Source Energy” and what the Universe wants for me, but that is not why I gave this book such a low rating. To dismiss depression as “lame-o realities” or “self-sabotaging stories” and to suggest that there are benefits to being depressed made me very angry.Here is the exact quote from Chapter 18 (please excuse any minor errors, as I was transcribing from an audiobook): “Become aware of what you are gaining from your stories. We pretty much don’t ever do anything that we don’t benefit from in some way… If you are perpetuating something dismal in your life because of some dopey story, there is definitely something about it that you are getting off on. Let’s say, for example, that your story is that you’re depressed. Chances are pretty good that even though it feels awful, when you feel awful you don’t have to work hard, or do the laundry, or go to the gym. It also feels very familiar and cozy and comfortable. It gets you attention. People come in and check on you and sometimes bring food. It gives you something to talk about. It allows you to not try too hard or move forward and face possible failure. It lets you drink beer for breakfast.”I disagreed with a lot of Ms. Sincero’s ideas in the book, but I pretty much live my life by the “to each, his own” philosophy. I could have even overlooked the advice to go into debt to manifest your reality, but I could not in good conscience, let this go without trying to make others aware. Depression is a serious issue and to treat it otherwise is irresponsible and dangerous.
10/10 recommend. Loved this book.One year ago I read this book and it helped change my life. Who knew all I had to do was change my thoughts and everything would fall into place!It made me kick my healthy lifestyle and I’ve lost 85 pounds in one year.
Anyone who has read other self-help books from authors likes, Louise Hay, Wayne Walter Deep Chopra, Echart Tolle, etc. and read the book Secret, you would feel many parts of the book content are almost literally copied from other self-help books.
I love everything about this book. I’ve had my self doubt, depressed days, anxiety, struggled with obesity, lived paycheck to paycheck, and also had a time in my life I was just content and happy. It slipped away because I thought I had it all figured out. I didn’t, not really. This entire book tells the truth, you may not like it but it’s the real deal. I laughed, and nodded my head in agreement on many pages and can’t wait to buy and read it again. I gave my first copy to my mom when I was done. Words to live by…valuable for a husband, friend, sibling, anyone who is ready and eager to live a happy, fulfilling life.
Shocked to discover this book has frequent references to Christian beliefs as part of its recommendation. Would never have bought the book had I known. Should be made clear in description
I was sceptical as to whether a young business woman could really speak to me but having read some reviews from “more mature” ladies thought I’d give it a go. I’m not looking to turn my life around by starting a business and becoming super rich. I don’t want to set the world on fire, I want my little bit of the world to be good place. I sort of feel that with the right mindset you can take what you have, improve it a bit, make life happier for yourself. This is the type of book I want…something to positively help. This isn’t it. World takeover? Buy this book.World a bit better and looking at things from a different perspective? Forget it.
I have tried to read this book on and off over the past few weeks, however I cannot get into it, despite being on Chapter 7. For me, it just feels like a long list of affirmations, with minimal logic or application. It’s not an interesting read and I find it quite a task to even read the book.I bought this book as recommended on a few pinterest boards as ‘essential for all 20 somethings to read’… I’m still not clear on why or how it is essential.Maybe I will attempt to read it again in the future, but for now this book is not for me.
Just a painful lot of emphasis on spiritualism (just a mix of all sorts). She makes some good point, but you do need to work your way through loads of vague spiritual stuff and unnecessary swearing
If you’re looking for something thought provoking and based on actual science, skip this book. It’s a rah-rah, you can do it, type of book based on some really basic psychology. There’s not much new here. It’s certainly a positive book but full of bad advice like “use affirmations” (Science says these don’t work unless you REALLY believe them) and “bash the heck out of a pillow” if you’re angry (Science says this actually makes us angrier) but this is a book that will appeal to the masses. There are better, more researched self-help books than this one.
