Living in Light, Love & Truth: Change Your Life Positively is an inspiring book written by Kasi Kaye Iliopoulos.

The purpose of the book is to provide insight on how to balance the spiritual and physical aspects of an individual and the life he lives in. It presents ways on how to stay clear of fear-based energies that inhibits a person to be a beacon of life. It is an interactive book where the reader can actually participate in recommended exercises at the end of each chapter.

The book has fifteen chapters including the Conclusion and About the Author. Chapters 1 to 12 are concluded with reflective quotes to ponder on, exercises the reader can participate in and affirmations of the reader’s conviction regarding the topic discussed. The author also provides diagrams to further illustrate the subject.

This is a wonderful book apparently written with passion, dedication and sincere desire of the author to help other people by sharing her views and personal experiences. She writes from the heart and every word and every phrase are heartfelt. She is very cautious especially in expressing her beliefs careful not to impose herself on others. She makes her personal beliefs very clear by designating one short chapter just for them.

However, though the book is, without a doubt, a very good one, I find some parts too subjective, the explanation a bit ambiguous and the use of specific terminologies with the author's personal definitions (vibration, blueprint, etc.) somehow makes for a difficult reading experience. Moreover, though the diagrams are obviously well thought out, I find their inclusion irrelevant. Furthermore, though the list of crystals and their uses is very interesting and informative, I find it out of place in this book. I would love to read about it in a separate book meant only for crystals and other mystical stones. In addition, despite the explanations and accounts of personal experiences to emphasize a point, there are still some parts of the book I did not get like: what light and truth is the author referring to? Does light refer to wisdom, hope, faith, and is the truth about yourself, about other people, or about life in general?

Finally, though the book is well written (except for a few noticeable errors like jealously instead of jealousy and your learning's) helpful and encouraging, for someone like myself who has watched the video presentation The Secret and has read numerous non-fiction, self-help and inspirational books including The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren, there is nothing new about this book. Everything in this book, except for the part about the crystals, like life’s purpose and being grateful for what you have among other topics, I already read somewhere else. Nevertheless, I enjoyed reading the book and I find it helpful and I believe that other readers may find it helpful, too.

I, therefore, rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. It is inspiring and encouraging and I recommend it to readers who enjoy inspirational reading materials.

I don't think this book is for me. It sounds a little too uncertain and out there for me. Thanks for the review, though. I enjoy your reviews.

I like the fact this book has exercises and is interactive. I think the interactive part is really awesome for a self-help book. It's a shame that the author is not clear or thorough on certain concepts though. I feel that is especially needed with this kind of book. Great review!

Kasi Kaye Iliopoulos' book is evidently a motivational/self-help resource. I like books in this genre. I also like that fact that you find the material inspiring and encouraging. Nice review!

So this is some kind of New Age style book from what I gathered from your review. I do enjoy them, but eventually, they all seem repetitive, because there is not really much new about them. Btw, I loved The Secret!

I honestly don't know what 'New Age style book' is :) but yes, there is not really much new about this book. Thank you for the comment :)
