A WARNING: If you are religious, you may be offended by the author’s form of spirituality which openly intermixes with the paranormal. She also openly categorises all religions under the same heading. If you are not religious, you may be similarly offended: By the author’s frequent use of the word and concept of “spirituality”. I would recommend the reading of this book only by those with a very open mind and the raw determination to read through consistently unproven claims, whether you are religious, or otherwise.

As for me, I could not bring myself to waste the time to complete the book: After reading until the end of the second chapter and reading from the last chapter (seventeenth) till the end of the book (just to be sure), the fact is that this book and its author raise question after question and claim after claim with little to no proof. For example, the author frequently uses famous quotes almost as if she believes these were in and of themselves proof of something, while quotes are simply opinions by a particular famous person.

Further, although the online description states: “Includes bibliographical references (p. [251]-257) …” this is inaccurate: The contents of the corresponding chapter suggest the more appropriate name of ’Further Reading’, in my opinion, and the resources listed are not the same as bibliographical references. The research in to this book and the proof for its claims are simply not listed.

Lastly, look under the Quotes section to the right of this Comments section for a further illustration of just how hard it can be to swallow this book and its claims.

From page 28, just below the middle of the page: "We are hooked into life by the mystery of love, as we ourselves are love, our very atoms formed of love, and why should it be otherwise when our very thoughts would merge in love?" This quote comes from out of nowhere and no explanation is offered for its meaning whatsoever.
