David R. Hawkins details how anyone may resolve the most crucial of all human dilemmas: how to instantly determine the truth or falsehood of any statement or supposed fact. Dr. Hawkins, who worked as a "healing psychiatrist" during his long and distinguished career, uses theoretical concepts from particle physics, nonlinear dynamics, and chaos theory to support his study of human behavior. This is a fascinating work that will intrigue readers from all walks of life!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Truth or Consequences Hawkins recounts research on reactions of muscles to questions, concluding that this proves there is a universal consciousness. A more believable conclusion: muscles are controlled by the subconscious mind which is reading body language, attitudes, inflections of voice, etc., or even perhaps muscles are influenced by the inner you (the soul) which is wiser due to wisdom gained through reincarnations. Hawkins' description of himself comes across as more enlightened than the Buddha, except that blissful states are not enlightenment, and enlightened people understand the relative nature (and ultimate meaninglessness of) true and false, and right and wrong. For instance, what is right in one culture is wrong in another and truth is dependent on how one perceives reality. Should I ask my muscles about Hawkins? He deserves 2 stars for effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Empower your life through kinesthetic testing Hawkins promotes kinesthetic testing as verifiable and true when properly used. However, his application of points to the many qualities of the human mind, such as anger, compassion etc. reflects a scientific method to the roots of vice and virtue. Hawkins is a co-founder of Orthomolecular Medicine. His scientific training is reflected in how he endorses kinesthetic testing/training to demonstrate where our human qualities are in terms of the positive/negative valuation scale. Overall, though, Power vs. Force is useful in evaluating the truth about a particular theory, topic or person. The science behind Power vs Force is competent. Its application in real life may require kinesthetic training, and is worth it.
