The Secret of Letting Go Book Review
by Steve M Nash
I bought Guy Finley's The Secret of Letting Go because I wanted to let go of a romantic relationship that had ended, but I discovered a much more powerful (and spiritual) form of 'letting go' - one that could literally transform my life. Whilst Guy's words are compelling, they are troubling too... This inspirational book is highly recommended!

MY BOOK REVIEW of The Secret of Letting Go
I read Guy Finley's The Secret of Letting Go in summer 2008, when I was trying to 'let go' of (yet another) failed romantic relationship. I was in a lot of pain, and I just wanted to get over this relationship as wisely as possible. Little did I know that Guy's book is about far more than letting go of failed relationships...
In fact, The Secret of Letting Go is about letting go of 'egoic pain', for want of a better expression.
In fact, Guy's book - all of Guy Finley's teachings, actually (he writes books, gives talks, produces audio ebooks, DVDs - all as part of his not-for-profit Life of Learning Foundation) - is much more than a self-help book, it's a spiritual guide to living life fearlessly AND in the NOW.
Yes, I think of Guy Finley as a kind of 'practical' Eckart Tolle - they both talk about the same 'truth', but just use different language.
And, personally speaking, as much as I appreciate and enjoy reading Eckhart Tolle, Guy Finley's teachings seem to be more usable - to me, anyway.
So what's in the book? Profound wisdom and 'truth', approached from many different angles that will force you to take a long, hard (and forgiving) look at yourself and who you blame for the troubles you've experienced in your life.
If you've read or listened to anything by Guy Finley then you'll know what to expect from this life-changing book. And if not, then I highly recommend you buy The Secret of Letting Go as it's a great introduction to the teachings of Guy Finley.
(1) I am not and never will be a fan of gurus per se, but I am a fan of 'Truth' - and Guy shows you a great glimpse of it, in his teachings and self help books, DVDs etc.
(2) I've just finished The Essential Laws of Fearless Living by Guy Finley and, again, I found this book to be truly inspirational!
