The way you wrote demonstrated that you were touched by the story. One who gives views about spirituality based on experiences witnessed in their lives is one I love listening to as there is realism in the facts presented. I also love such stories since it goes to show that every soul has a path way to God if there is true sincerity in an individual's salutations.

I am intrigued at how the writer combines Christianity, meditation techniques, health, and Japanese culture in one book. I do hope it is as interesting as it sounds. I identify as a christian but I also love practicing other beliefs and traditions.

Things that make you go hmm... I'm interested to see what's in the book that is worth a ponder. I like reading about others' spiritual insights and viewpoints. Doesn't mean I have to agree with them, it just interests me how people think. Each to their own, I'd say.

I want to read this book based on the title and cover. After reading your review, I definitely want to read The Unbound Soul. Haight sharing his dream from Jesus surprised me. I say this because my mom had an experience with Jesus when she 21 years old; no one believed her except me. I plan on reading this book next. Thank you for the thorough review.

The review has made me curious enough to want to read this book. I would like to see what the author has to say about spirituality and compare it to my own belief.

Thank you for the helpful review. I am usually not much of self-help book person, however it sounds like this is an excellent one and maybe worth reading. I think that having an introduction to the author will help me appreciate that book more since it sets up a personal narrative right from the start instead of just advice.

I've never read a self help book before, and I don't intend to read one, but you have definitely intrigued me. Your review is in-depth, and the effort you have put into researching the author's personal life journey shows how much you enjoyed this read. What I like most about your review is how you've been considerate of other people's religions, indicating what might be readily accepted and what won't, but shown the degrees to which it might still be helpful-- such as the diet changes and meditation you have undertaken yourself. You have provided a balanced and honest review, and I enjoyed reading it.

Thank you. :)

This is a great review! I appreciate the detail. These kinds of books are often very hit-or-miss for me. I am not immediately grabbed to read it and may find it redundant when taken with some other books I have read, but who am I to begrudge this specific individual telling his story?

I probably will read it because it is going to be the BotM. Thanks for helping me know what to expect!

Religion has always been an emotional spot in my life which I find difficult to talk about so I genuinely commend the author for visiting that part of his personal space and inspiring lives with it. Thanks for the review, it was very detailed.

It intrigues me to learn about other people's spiritual journey. Even if I don't completely agree on some points but I find it refreshing to learn different perspective on certain topics especially when it comes to beliefs. Not to mention, it is a very sensitive topic. I have had added this book to my 'want to read' list a while ago and would like to read it soon. Thank you for the review.
