Radical Enlightenment: My Guy on the 9th Floor by Kevin Russell is a self-help book that guides readers on leading a happy, fulfilled, and conscious life through enlightenment. Achieving this enlightenment involves going through and understanding concepts like radical honesty, radical energy, radical acceptance, radical empathy, and radical balance. We are also introduced to different dimensions and frequencies of life and how we can apply this knowledge on our journey to becoming the best versions of ourselves, which the author refers to as "the energetic-you."

The first things I like about Radical Enlightenment are the author's understanding of the different ways readers may perceive the book and the fact that he does not dismiss any of the concerns discussed. Instead, he encourages readers that may have some resistance to reading through the text, and he clearly points out how helpful the information in the book can be.

Considering that Kevin Russell discusses a topic as complex as achieving consciousness and enlightenment, I am in awe of the simplicity and clarity of the message in the book. The author employs relatable examples to help readers fully grasp his lessons. A couple of times, a driver and a car are used to explain the different dimensions in life, showing us why it is important to aspire to become drivers in control when viewing our three-dimensional lives as observers. He also makes comparisons between a personal journey and a first-person video game.

Readers will also get glimpses into the author's personal life and how he achieved radical enlightenment. He maintains that it is a continuous process and may be different for each person, however. The importance of improving the quality of the body through adequate sleep, dieting, exercise, and breathing is also reiterated. I also liked that illustrations were included strategically to paint clear pictures of what the author discussed at certain points.

Furthermore, the science behind how we are all connected, how our vibrational frequencies affect our emotions, and how our energies affect everything around us are discussed. The author includes the work done by various physicists, like Hal Puthoff and Anton Zeilinger, in this area. The book is well researched and well-referenced, and there is a link to workbooks that apply to the lessons and additional reading material. I found just two errors while reading, and this convinced me that the book was well edited.

Overall, Radical Enlightenment is a well written, informative guide. While there is some information in the book that I have learned about previously, such as the use of affirmations, there were a lot of new lessons I picked up while reading. I was also introduced to healing tools, like "PSYCH-K®" and the "Emotion Code/Body Code," which help with balancing energies and emotions. There was nothing I disliked about the book, and therefore, it deserves the maximum rating of 4 out of 4 stars. I would recommend Radical Enlightenment to people that are interested in improving their quality of life. People that are looking to achieve a higher level of consciousness will also benefit from this book.

When I read the title and the cover page of the book, it caught my attention. When I looked at the front of the cover of this book and the title, I immediately thought it was going to be a great book and guidance for someone or in my life. I read this book before; it wasn't my kind of book that I would read, but I would say it was okay.

I agree, the title gives a completely different idea than what the book actually is. Great review though

I'm curious to know why the defining goal is to bring the 'the energetic you', while at the same time the author indicated that there entire improvement is a continuous process. I was thinking there needn't be a state that'd limit the process.

Interesting topic to try to cover in a book. I would love to find the "energetic me!" ...she has been missing for quite a while now :lol2:

My greatest accomplishment is that I raised two daughters that love to read.

I love most of the ideas discussed in the book except the vibrational frequencies bit and the whole concept of how our energy affects things that surround us, but maybe this book will clarify that better.
