Author: Dr Rohan Weerasinghe
Publisher: Ecademy Press, 2011
Reviewer: Carol Singleton, Queen’s Nurse, clinical project manager end of life care, North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust
What was it like?
This is a book designed and written to help you identify that you have reached a “turning point” in your life and to take your through the “Six Step Change Process” using the practical tools so that you can “discover the recipe for creating lifelong fun and passionate relationships”.
There is a “recommended” reading list of books written by people who have inspired the author of this book in the world of business, spiritual and personal development, and a short section describing books, CDs, DVDs and seminars produced by Dr Weerasinghe but no index.
What were the highlights?
The book is divided into four sections of 13 chapters, the first section covers “clearing the obstacles on the path”, the second “the six-step change process”, the third “the three pillars for life balance” and the fourth “where the rubber meets the road”. There are exercises and suggestions of how to make changes to various areas of your life including financial, relationships, diet and exercise.
Strengths & weaknesses:
There are examples of people helped by Dr Weerasinghe’s work throughout the book, which helps to describe situations that readers may have also experienced and then there are explanations of what was happening to the person and how things could be done differently.
The section of the book, which describes detoxing and “cleansing: top down – bottom up” may put off some readers from following Dr Weerasinghe’s ideas as it suggests regular colonic irrigations as part of the plan but it is not compulsory and the rest of his ideas make good sense.
Who should read it?
This book will appeal to anybody who has reached a “turning point” in their life whether this relates to health, finances, career or relationships or a combination of these elements. It is the sort of book that can be dipped into and out of without needing to read it cover to cover but is so interesting that it is quite difficult to skip sections.
