I am not really into Eastern Medicine. I am also afraid some of the ideas the author presents may not be consistent with my beliefs. However, thank you for the thorough and enlightening review.

Latest Review: A Kingdom Forgotten by Charles W. McDonald Jr.

Post by Jlprince26 » 06 Jun 2019, 07:53

I can't say that this would be a book I would sit down and read. Although some of it sounds interesting, it's not my cup of tea. I could probably get into the medicinal part where it talks about other methods aside from modern medicine and it's failure to actually heal but only temporary relieve. I however would not be interested in reading about the awful stuff they used to do, it makes me sad to even think about it. Great job on your review!

:x I agree with your rating. Though interesting, due to its diverse sources (and resources), the poor proofreading really put me off from the word go.

The author probably had to do a lot of research in order to put this book together. This seems like a very interesting book to read with information from such varied backgrounds. Thank you for the honest review.

The grammar errors and syntax problems that you mention in your review stopped me reading the Amazon sample after just a couple of pages. Not for me.

Awaken you wonderful we: How do we create heaven on earth? The secret of one page table reveal all the real causes of all phe by Van Duy Dao sounds like one of those books a reader can not overlook especially the fact that the book tackles the most popular health problems, causes, symptoms, and recommendations. I will love to read it. Great review.

Filled with well-researched theories of the world about how we learn and develop, today's BOTD is a thought-provoking, complex read. It has the potential to challenge our own thoughts and "truths" about what we think are determining factors in many of the health and development issues that exist today. By informing ourselves of the many ideas presented here, we can gain a better understanding of how to live a happier, healthier life, while helping others do the same. :-)

Thank you for your awesome review! I have downloaded my free copy, and while I may not be quite ready to tackle it all at once, I do plan to read it over time. I'm not (at all) sure of this, but perhaps the errors within are translation issues...maybe English is not the author's first language. Just a guess...please forgive me if I am wrong! :-) I'm a language teacher, and from what I have read so far, it apprears that the writing contains errors commonly seen among those whose native language is not English. Again...just a guess. Either way, this seems to be filled with useful information, and I hope the author is able to find an editor to help make this book easier for all to absorb. I appreciate you reading this and providing us with your review - great job!! Keep it up! :-)

This book seem to have solutions that can better our lives. When I read the name I thought it is religious focused, but now now I understand that it's not, I would love to learn much and get insight in the methods of healing.

This book sound like one for open minded and mature heart. From the preview, I see the author explain the causes of sicknesses (problems) and alternative solutions that have over the time being proven. Great book to read and nice review.

Sounds like an interesting book for people exploring more of a holistic approach to their health. I think we have a long way to go before we rely solely on alternative forms of medicine. Thanks for the insightful review!

Eastern teachings and philosophy have never held much interest for me, so I would certainly hesitate before reading this book. I did appreciate your thoughtful review, however, especially your comments about the pros and cons of this author’s religious ideas. Well done for tackling this so commendably.
