I had the opportunity to receive this book for free, in exchange for my honest review, and am quite grateful for the author for the opportunity — it had already landed on my radar before I came across the offer. Living on Earth ~ A Book Review   With that said, here’s my review from Goodreads:

 

3.5 stars, overall.

The book has a rather interesting format, in that it covers a plethora of topics, albeit in little bite-sized chapters, each complete with at least two other books that the author has read over the past 25 years, and strongly recommends. Like Ms. Segarra, I’ve done lots of reading on many of these subjects, myself, so it’s nice to have some new reading recommendations on certain topics I might not’ve yet read.

Among others, the book covers the field of consciousness, reincarnation, the life between lives/pre-life planning states, soul evolution, the laws of karma, attraction, and creation, goal setting, manifesting, affirmations, taking action & responsibility, the human energy field, various possibilities for causes of disease according to several well-known, worldwide methods of deduction, conventional and alternative medicine practices (eg Reiki, aromatherapy, reflexology), and on to diets, weight loss, and exercise, and finishes with chapters on difficult relationships and soul healing. This is a LOT of topics for a 200-page book.

So, as stated with the reading recommendations, this book is an extremely good jumping-off point for a number of topics. Lots of quotes, her writing style is light, and it’s an easy read, easy to pick up anytime and read a small chapter. That said, for the cons, some of the chapter choices seem odd — I barely even skimmed the chapters on dieting, weight loss and exercise, as they seemed out of place — and some of them were far too short for my area of interest. Just when it was getting good, it was time for a new chapter and I need to go find another book on the topic.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, and am grateful to the author for this opportunity.
