Power vs Force – The Hidden Determinants of Human Behaviour David R. Hawkins


Power vs Force

This is an extraordinary book that I have recommended to many of my friends.  Here are some of the excerpts and comments:

Imagine- what if you had access to a simple yes-or-no answer to any question you wished to ask?  A demonstrably true answer.  Any question….Think about it. — from the Foreword.

Man thinks he lives by virtue of the forces he can control, but in fact he is governed by power from unrevealed sources, power over which he has no control. — from the Introduction.

“…particularly timely…a significant contribution to understanding and dealing with the problems we face  today” — Lee Iacocca

“I especially appreciate [the] research and presentation on the attractor patterns of business… — Sam Walton

“[A] beautiful gift of writing…[You] spread joy, love and compassion through what you write.  The fruit of these three is peace, as you know….”— Mother Theresa

“Overwhelming! A masterpiece! A lifetime work!” –Sheldon Deal, president, International College of Applied Kinesiology
