The entire book came, paper back and all. But the pages were all ripped on the right side instead of being a straight cut edge as if someone photocopied the entire book, glued it into the cover but the pages didn't fit on the right side and took scissors and cut til the entire thing was "sort of" lined up. Can't say I'm furious because to me it's just a book, but it's definitely NOT what I was expecting. I'd send it back for a new one if I had the time or energy to do so, but I bought a book and a book is what I got. Just a heads up to the people to come on what you're buying prior to doing so.

Aside the crappy feeling of pages, this book is a great book that has a lot to offer people who are trying to improve their life. Dyer doesn't tell you what to think and repeatedly states that this is written from his point of view which I can respect. He simply explains the different passages from these great minds and does so in a way where it opens your eyes (if you let it) to see things from a different point of view. Doesn't mean you have to agree but it helps you look further than where you may have settled on somethings before. I'm half way done with the book and can't wait to finish. (PS I have never finished a book from front to back in my life, I'm 26, and I hate reading)

I love the book and when I'm done I'll probably read it a few more times before putting it on a shelf.

This is an excellent book. That more people aren't familiar with it is a mystery to me. 60 essays covering the spectrum of thought and philosophy, each entry easily read in one sitting. I've purchased more of these as gifts than any other book. The messages are timeless, and the content can speak to us differently depending upon life's season.

Being an avid advocate of ancient wisdom, I immediately felt a connection with Wayne Dyer. I first saw his videos on Public Television. His relaxed manner and deep wise voice immediately had my attention. When I heard about his new book: Wisdom of the Ages, I knew this was a book I would want to own.

Ancient wisdom is fascinating to me. It can teach us as much as it taught our ancestors so long ago. When I find a quote or a poem I feel a connection to, I collect it like a treasure. You know that you are learning something wise, something which is lost in the hurried twenty-first century.

Wayne Dyer has captured the wisdom from sixty great teachers. They come from various backgrounds, cultures and religions, yet their writings hold truth. These are the writings of highly imaginative, productive and perceptive individuals. If you appreciate poetry, quotes, and prose selections which inspire; you will thrive for sixty days as your soul grows in a new garden of awareness.

The words from our ancestral scholars hold keys to our own spiritual advancement. Wayne takes each portion of writing and unfolds the cocoon for us. He sets the butterflies of truth free to circle in our minds as we gaze on their beauty. He puts each piece of wisdom in the context of our lives today and gives a practical application.

These short essays will speak to your heart. Each section begins with a selection and the explanation follows. Wayne Dyer is a natural teacher who so effortlessly draws on his own collected wisdom and the experiences in his life that most fully represent his new lesson. He challenges the reader to make his book a two-month project in which you read one section a day and try to apply the principles you have absorbed.

As you read this great work, you will feel as though you have entered a unity of consciousness with the writers. Their world suddenly becomes yours, their lessons become a gift of enlightenment. Can pain in our lives help us to accent to a higher plane of acceptance? Can someone really make you unhappy without your consent? Can we turn anger over a situation in life into a peaceful and fulfilling solution? What are the six mistakes we all make?

Here you will learn how to stop giving your precious energy to things you don't believe in, how to find a quite place, or how to become more aware of that feeling of peace you so desire. While I don't believe I am God, I do believe God can show his love through us and his son can live in us. The voices I heard through the words of the sixty writers did not conflict with my own beliefs. They reinforced some of the wisdom I knew to be truth and taught me more about who I want to be. I have just taken the first few steps in the long journey into eternity.

If enlightenment means an immersion in and a surrounding of peace, you might just find it by applying the principles in this book.

A Sample Poem included in Wisdom of the Ages:

Lives of great men all remind us

We can make our lives sublime,

And, departing, leave behind us

Footprints on the sands of time.

I have read most of Wayne Dyer's books over the course of the past few years. This is because find him to be more than an extraordinarily gifted writer, but rather a truly inspiring example of how one can not only change ones own life - but also dramatically affect the lives of others for the better. This book is one of his best works; I have bought several copies and given them as gifts to friend and family. It is an anthology of short dissertations on sixty of the world's most gifted religious figures, philosophers, poets and writers. He starts with some of the earliest writers of known history and progresses to our present day. It includes both eastern and western writings, and teachings - and in reading them one cannot help but see that all of these people had a special connection to the universal intelligence that is within all of us. One truly pleasant feature of this book is that one can go to any chapter virtually at random, and find an inspirational thought to meditate on or practice for the day. This is especially convenient because each section is only one or two pages so that even if I have only a few minutes with nothing to do - I can always pick it up and read a section or two.

While the subtitle to this book "60 days to Enlightenment" might be a tad over-stated, reading and putting Wayne's thoughts and suggestions into practice is definitely a very good start in that direction. I can attest that this book and two others of Wayne's have been significant factors in changing at least a few lives that I know of - dramatically for the better. Keep up your wonderful work Wayne.
