Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye opening read I loved this book. A slower read as I often stopped to reflect on what he was saying, and how it related to my current situation. I learned a lot about the way that I currently treat my worries and fears! 100% recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend I received this book last week, and I've already finished it. Anyone looking for true inner peace, how to be completely aware of ones consciousness, and to learn how to just let go; I recommend this book. I could not put it down. Absolutely loved it. So much so, that I am buying another book from Singer - The Surrender Experiment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing book This book completely changed my life. I started reading it with the intention of wanting more space from compulsive thoughts. It has allowed me to grow so much and realize that my thoughts are just that, thoughts. Untethered soul gave me more space and freedom and I will be forever grateful for that. I have suggested this book to a few friends to read and they have also really loved it. It stimulated quite the conversation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Required Reading Michael Singer's writings underscore everything that I have studied from the Spiritual Teachers I have read so far. The one difference that I can see is that figuratively, he speaks about the process of watching disturbing incidents or feelings that play in our mind by stepping back and observing. By allowing them to flow through us, blocks are not created. By stepping back, we actually ascend to a higher spiritual plane in the realisaton that neither circumstances or negative emotions are not us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Read I found this book quite a deep read, but I enjoyed the time spent reading each chapter twice & letting it all sink it. It's a modern day masterpiece for the soul.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver for Me! This book was exactly what I needed to get out of the turmoil I was in regarding something in my life. I absolutely LOVE this book & would highly recommend it to anyone. There's a reason Oprah loved it so much & then bought thousands of copies to gift. She said she ran out of people to give it to & went on to tell people about it in one of her Super Soul Sunday podcasts. I now want to purchase more of Mr. Singers books and this book I will read again and again throughout my life. Thank you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little repetitive I really did want to like this book. But I found the insight quite repetitive and lacking depth. I didn't even finish the book. There's definitely a lot of self help books out there with a similar topic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awe-Struck This is definitely a good surprising read. As if we need more self-help books, this one is more inspirational, and helps you understand the way we work, as opposed to it telling you how to change. Definitely a wonderful read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to! I just re-read this book for the second time, and even then it offered profound insight. This is one of the best books I read on explaining the workings of our mind in everyday language that is easy to understand. Helped me understand why I struggle with my thoughts and emotions, as well as illuminating a way to clarity and peace. It goes much deeper to examine our connection to the universe if you are ready for that. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book, changed my thinking! My friend recommended this book, from page one I was hooked. Really changed the way I put things in perspective. The little voice in my head is talking less and less and the annoying things people do are starting not to bug me. Everyday I become more at peace. If you have anxiety, depression, loneliness and you ACTUALLY want to change buy this book and do yourself a favour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer!!! This book changed everything for me. While wordy and thick throughout the words resonated with me in every way. I found myself nodding as I read with agreement and even laughing at how well it seemed to describe me. I've heard the saying "if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change". That was always easier said than done until I read this book. Worth every word.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing This book was one of the most influential tools I've used to overcome chronic anxiety. So much of anxiety is fear of the future, and this book taught me to let go of my attachments and live in the present moment. I've recommended this book many times to friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Changed me for the better I recently got out of a relationship because I had too many negative feelings, like jealousy and anxiety. I bought this book soon after. I believe this book has changed a lot about me. Since reading the first chapter, I instantly felt more free. I literally feel my heart changing, and I'm so much more happier and willing to experience life moment to moment. The only thing I was not expecting is the last chapter. It speaks about God. I'm not a religious person, and up until that point I did not see this book going in that direction. I don't mind, it's still nice to see the relation to religion. This book saved me.

Editorial Reviews

In the book The Untethered Soul, Michael A. Singer takes you step-by-step through the process of Gyana, the yoga of the Intellect, to the Source. Moreover, he does it with elegant simplicity. Read this book carefully, and you will get more than a glimpse of eternity." - Deepak Chopra, author of Life After Death: The Burden of Proof "In lucid, unadorned prose, Michael A. Singer delivers the essence of the great spiritual teachings of the Ages. Each chapter of The Untethered Soul is an instructive meditation on the binds of the human condition and how each and every knot can be gracefully untied so that our souls may fly. The accuracy and simplicity of this work is a measure of its pure mastery." - James O'Dea, past president of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) " The Untethered Soul is indeed one of the finest treatments of the nature and practice of the conscious use of consciousness that I have ever read? . It is the clearest statement I know of who we are and what we face in our emerging humanity." - Jean Houston, philosopher, psychologist, and author of A Mythic Life and Passion for the Possible "Deep spirituality is within your reach in this book. In it you will find the mirror to see your unconditional, holy self. If you look for practical spirituality not encumbered by credo and ritual, read this book." - Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, coauthor of Jewish with Feeling and From Age-ing to Sage-ing "Michael A. Singer has opened my mind to an entirely new dimension of thought. Through The Untethered Soul, I have been challenged both psychologically and intellectually in a new and exciting way. It may take more than one reading and many hours of introspection, but The Untethered Soul is a must-read for anyone in search of greater understanding of themselves and of the truth." - Louis Chiavacci, senior vice-president of Merrill Lynch, ranked in Barron's top fifteen US Investment Advisors "Psalm 42:8 says, 'Deep calls unto deep.' Within each human soul there is a longing for more, and the thirst can be quenched only by God. In The Untethered Soul, Michael A. Singer helps the modern person who is seeking this experience to come to a better understanding of the action in their soul. I highly recommend this reflection of one soul to another on the journey." - Fr. Paul Wierichs, CP, director of the Passionist Monastery and Spiritual Center of Our Lady of Florida " The Untethered Soul is a brilliant treatment of the path of spiritual consciousness. It is clearly and powerfully written. Michael A. Singer provides a firm step for those on a spiritual journey." - Abdul Aziz Said, professor of peace studies and chair of Islamic Peace at American University "This publication has released boundless joy for the hungry souls of the world." - Ma Yoga Shakti Saraswati,founder of Yogashakti International Mission and recipient of Hinduism Today's Hindu of the Year 2000 award "East is East and West is West, but Michael A. Singer bridges these two great traditions in a radiant treatise on how to succeed in life from our spiritual quest to our everyday tribulations. Freud said that life was composed of love and work. With great eloquence, wit, and compelling logic, Singer's brilliant book completes this thought by showing them to be two poles of the same selfless devotion." - Ray Kurzweil , National Medal of Technology recipient and author of The Singularity Is Near "This is a seminal book that quite frankly is in a class by itself. In a simple, yet paradoxically profound way, Michael A. Singer takes the reader on a journey that begins with consciousness tethered to the ego and ends having taken us beyond our myopic, contained self-image to a state of inner freedom and liberation. Michael A. Singer's book is a priceless gift to all who have futilely searched and yearned for a richer, more meaningful, creative life." - Yogi Amrit Desai , internationally recognized pioneer of modern yoga"
