Publisher's Summary

The publication of Power vs. Force by Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., reveals to the general public secret information heretofore only shared by the author with certain Nobelists and world leaders. Analyzing the basic nature of human thought and consciousness itself, the author makes available to everyone the key to penetrating the last barrier to the advancement of civilization and science and resolving the most crucial of all human dilemmas: how to instantly determine the truth or falsehood of any statement or supposed fact.
All human endeavors have the common goal of understanding or influencing human experience. To this end, man has developed numerous descriptive and analytical disciplines: morality, philosophy, psychology, and so on. Regardless of what branch of inquiry one starts from (philosophy, political theory, theology) all avenues of investigation eventually converge at a common meeting point: the quest for an organized understanding of the nature of pure consciousness.
To explain that which is simple can be difficult indeed. Much of this book is devoted to the process of making the simple obvious. If we can understand even one simple thing in depth, we will have greatly expanded our capacity for comprehending the nature of the universe and life itself.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Great book, poorly read.

There is no doubt as a book, Power vs. Force is
brilliant. Sadly the author reads it with the most
boring monotone mumble. My advice - get the book, not
the audio book.

Great insights but inaccessible to the masses

I typically prefer it if the author is the narrator of their audiobook. In this case I make an exception. Given that I am not enlightened and that I do not possess absolute mental discipline, my mind still gets distracted from listening.

The drone of Hawkins voice doesn't help to keep my mind engaged in the book and so I was left to use will power to keep my mind from wandering. A professional voice actor with a more colourful delivery would have solved this problem and perhaps made the book more acceptable to more people.

I titled this review inaccessible to the masses because of the intellectual complexity with which it is written.

I expect readers of this book will have the same complaints as they do about Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra..... too intellectual.

Surely a spirital teacher who wanted to make the greatest impact would appeal to the lowest common denominator to ensure that readers of all reading and intelligence levels would be able to benefit from the material? That's not what's happening here.

I can imagine many people who started reading this book up did not finish because the material was too heavy. The ideas are not complex but the delivery, I feel, is.
