THE RECORD-BREAKING, #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER – OVER 35 MILLION COPIES SOLD
The first book by Wayne Dyer, author of the multimillion-copy bestseller Pulling Your Own Strings and national bestsellers There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem and Wisdom of the Ages, a positive and practical guide to breaking free from the trap of negative thinking and enjoying life to the fullest.
If you're plagued by guilt or worry and find yourself unwittingly falling into the same old self-destructive patterns, then you have "erroneous zones" – whole facets of your approach to life that act as barriers to your success and happiness.
Perhaps you believe that you have no control over your feelings and reactions – Dyer shows how you can take charge of yourself and manage how much you will let difficult times and people affect you. Or maybe you spend more time worrying what others think than working on what you want and need – Dyer points the way to true self-reliance. From self-image problems to over-dependence on others, Dyer gives you the tools you need to break free from negative thinking and enjoy life to the fullest.

I came across this book by reference and had to read it. And it was obvious in just the first few pages why it has been such a longstanding sensation. It’s uplifting without the cotton fluff sometimes found in books of the genre. It’s very reassuring, but he certainly pulls no punches. His is brass knuckle realism all the way.
The book is a primer on living in the moment and the importance of choice. It’s all about choosing your way out of regret, worry, and self-abasement. While it’s good advice even today, it had to be well ahead of its time in 1976.
He promises a lot. I’m not sure that I can think my way to turning the sound of the dentist’s drill into the “most orgiastic moment of your life,” but I certainly accept the underlying premise. And he makes some very insightful points about learning, noting, for example, that the average test results among school children are not far off the best test results from a couple of grades back, suggesting that the knowledge gained at school is a function of time rather than innate talent. It makes sense.
It does seem that the “in the moment” movement is getting somewhat displaced by the concept of understanding who you are in the larger context of your greater purpose in the self-development genre, but the idea has not been discredited for sure. I just think that comments such as, “There is no such thing as human nature,” while true in a figurative sense, perhaps, might raise some objection from contemporary evolutionary biologists and others in the field of science and psychology.
The people who live in the moment clearly have a very transparent and absolute perspective on the world. “Justice is a simply a concept that has almost no applicability, particularly as it pertains to your own choices about fulfillment and happiness.” Again, true at some conceptual level, but not the way most of us would choose to live today. We tend to be less absolute and more relative in our values, largely because of the increasing complexity of life in an age of technology, even though that relativity introduces some conflict in our lives.
All told, it’s a very quick and easy read and you will learn a lot. I particularly enjoyed his thoughts on parenting, which all of us who have attempted it know we got wrong—or at least not completely right.
Also, the man who gave me this book was one of the wisest men I have ever met, so, consider the source. He knew I needed it.
Friends are Spiritual Family, so, in order to deal with them, you have to clean up relationships in your mind and heart, and in your own family as well. Besides, as you grow older, you begin to realize that you are much less friend-oriented, and many that you keep, you do so because you know them, but love them anyway.
And, even if you are, pardon the word, “normal”, you certainly will have family and friends who are so neurotic that they are intensely aware of all their own pains, but oblivious to yours…time to start realizing your realizations.
The only other important thing is that, by age 40 or so, you can divide people into two categories: Those who love to learn and are excited to grow, and the rest who : “learn nothing and forget nothing.” No book, and no Master, and no Messiah can help the stubborn 2nd group. Most all of them, even if they are brought to the door of Death, and then somehow miraculously released at the last moment to live more life—they still won’t get it. No change: no livin’~~!!! No matter what therapy or what ceremony or what system you use for therapy, if you the patient don’t do the work, you won’t live smart. You either do the work on yourself, and co-operate with those that are helping you in the process, or, you die stupid. Take your choice. Start with this book. It helps.
