This book did change my thoughts and my life in one simple sentence Dyer wrote: "Relax, let go, and allow." So simple, yet those words affected my life in a profoundly positive way. I need to keep rereading this book (or listen to the audio), but every time I do, I find my thoughts changing. I feel less self-hatred and less anger. That is worth ten times the price of the book.

I would really recommend this book. I found it extremely enlightening, and an enjoyable read. I've read a very limited number of books in this genre. But I was so impressed I have now bought 3 hard copies of this book and I am giving them as gifts.

This book continues the thoughtful work of Dyer. In this text he reads and then comments upon the work of Tau Te Ching, "The Great Way". It is helpful that he reads a passage and relates the reading to everyday life and thinking. At the end of each section Dyer offers concrete ways to practice what has been taught. The book is well read, but the listener will benefit most if (s)he listens away from distraction. Dyer is helpful to those who agree with him and those who do not. There is just good insight here.

This book is just awesome. It brings all the wisdom of ancient times to our reality. I like the fact that Dr. Dyer makes it applicable to all walks of life and is non-denominational. You don't have to be a Buddhist, Muslim or Christian to understand that this teachings apply to all of us. The world would be a better place if we would all practice the wisdom of the Tao.

This book is a great way to get to know the Dao De Jing or tao te ching, however it's spelled. I have listened to several of Dr. Dyer's works, and I think that this is up there with the best. It's a great real world explanation of the Dao for folks that are looking for a little different perspective on life. I think he does a good job of bringing the "Eastern" philosophy to the "Western" mind. Some of his suggestions may seem a bit pollyanna, but that is his nature.

For anyone who has followed the career of Wayne Dyer, this introduction and exploration of the Tao is as compelling for appreciating his own spiritual growth as it is for the insights and lessons offered. If you are part of the global groundswell of growing spiritual enlightenment, this book will deepen your understanding of our universal connection and offer practical advice for living within the space of silence and compassion. The more you listen, the more is revealed. Thank you, Wayne, for inviting us along while you explore!

This was pretty good, but not up there with his best work. I am a fan of Dr. Dyer and I think this could have been better. One drawback is his soothing voice narrating this book. His voice tended to drone me to sleep if I were in bed. I had to listen several times to hear the book due to this. As far as content...
The book is deep, "very" deep. It may be too deep for some and I think I fall into that category. It went so deep that he lost me at times. This is why I give it a 3 star rating instead of 4 or 5 stars. Deep, but not so deep that you lose the point would have been better.
I think his unabridged version of "The Power of Intention" was far better.

I have been a fan of Wayne Dyer for many years and own several of his books. This book I do NOT recommend. The Tao Te Ching is a beautiful spiritual book and in Dr. Dyer's interpretation the beauty and essence is lost. Less is more Dr. Dyer. If you want to listen to a pure and inspiring version of the Tao, I highly recommend Steven Mitchell's book. The title is "Tao Te Ching: A New English Version". When I listen and reflect on Steven Mitchell's version I feel a lump in my throat as I do when I hear any pure wisdom. This is a gauge for me that what I am listening to is connecting with my higher self. When I listen to Wayne Dyer's version, I feel my mind becoming cluttered and confused. I hope this book does not spoil the Tao for those who are hearing it for the first time. Don't stop here. This is not the purest form of interpretation. Seek out the Tao in other interpretations and when you connect you will know and when you know you will be enriched with its essence. Only then will you BE one with the Tao.

This weekend audio session took what I understood of his works 'Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life' and 'the Shift' and added far more detail and understanding to the message. I highly recommend this as an integral part of making that Shift of higher conscious in everyday life. The quality of the presentation is excellent. Money well spent!

This work is so profound as of someone would grab the Tao te ching he would mostly not understand it or wouldn't be able to apply the content to his daily modern life. Wayne did an fantastic job in making this ancient knowledge accessible to everyone. I have to admit it opened me up to another level of understanding. As Goethe's Faust confesses I have the beginning of Faust: knowledge accumulation ends everybody up with confusion. But it's the incorporating of natural wisdom of the Tao or the natural laws and flow of life - these principles which lead to universal understanding. Same as the choral "Wird dein Anliegen auf den Herrn" - self-created disturbances by your thought slowly start to evaporate and I can feel my long lost universal trust. Thank you Wayne ❤️
