I bought this book on the recommendation of a friend. My friend has long believed and espoused (and keeps trying to) what Dr. Hamilton said over and over in this book.
This book provides scientific evidence to what I think we've always thought---that our thoughts have the power to alter ourselves, other people, the world around us. That we are all connected.
I have not finished this book yet but I find myself thinking more and more about how I want to live out the rest of my life. I want to make it count. And I want to do better for me, so that doing that will have a good effect on the people around me. I intend to give my parents a copy of this book because the things/lessons in this book are what they've been teaching me all my life. Of course when I was a kid I hated being told what to do and didn't think my parents knew any better. But having gone through the experiences I've had, I don't doubt their effect and how it's shaped me to be the person I am now, and what Dr. Hamilton says in this book reinforces what I've long thought of but found difficult to believe.
If you want to give a gift to anybody, I suggest giving them a copy of this book.
