4.0 out of 5 stars Dead Simple, June 4 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was thinking this might be another self indulgent book by a financial wizard who spends as much time obfuscating (don't try this at home with your much smaller brain!) as he spends claiming unique and unprecedented insight. Everything in this book is rather straightforward and is clear. The author says that with a lot of analysis tools or skills or advisors you would come to the same conclusions, but I think he's being a bit circumspect, which is also refreshing.

The Purple Chips system is remarkably simple and at least twice during the reading of the book I was tempted to bash myself in the forehead and say, "Duh!"...I should have seen how obvious this is.

An interesting and enjoyable read and a definite primer on how to reduce risk, stress and anxiety and work within what is known and knowable in your stock investments. I will be watching this author in the years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars After just one day, Dec 7 2010
After releasing hundreds of recordings
and a few best selling books, Jerry
and Esther Hicks have released a powerful
new tool.

The premise is simple.

By getting in tune with your inner self
each day, you anchor your day in the Vortex.
In the Vortex your desires manifest...the
things that were on their way to you but
that you had not yet allowed start to
pop into your life. And each day will
have more stamina and more spontaneity.

This is what is promised. Intuitively
it feels right.

Today I listened to the first fifteen
minute recording about general well
being. It was easy to listen and
breathe. I was not yet able to coordinate
my breathing to the rhythm of the
music. (Why do "New Age" recordings
ALWAYS have spacey synth pads?)

Abraham says it will come and not
to try. And not to listen too hard
to the words they are saying. Just
breathe and relax.

Today I noticed more direction,
more action, more ease. I have a
very good feeling about this.

A quietly good feeling.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Social Crusader is Born, Oct. 19 2010
This review is from: Sara Rose, Kid Lawyer (Paperback)
It seemed like an innocuous little book.

I thought my daughter would like it because she's
11 years old and says wants to study law
at Harvard.

I enjoyed the story and the spirit and pluck of
Sara Rose. When it came to the end, I was deeply
moved. I cried, which surprised me.

It's an excellent story about the difference
one person can make when they are passionate
and when they are willing to try.
