I loved this book. Bought it back in 1990 when it first came out, while going through a period of depression. I felt the book helped me recognize the depression as something to honor in myself rather than to resist. Beautiful and affirming for women to learn of the goddess within.

This is a recent textbook (2008). It's 5th edition. Students are using the 6th edition in Fall 2011. Cost $120 new, but unfortunately it was a special format for University of Maryland and couldn't be resold. Would be perfect for someone who wants to get current on criminology in America without having to purchase an expensive textbook.

During my reading of this book, my consciousness took a huge leap forward. It had sat on my bookshelf for a couple years before I was ready for it, but once I was, wow! It's like Tolle's book--either you're ready for it and it makes a lot of sense to you, or it doesn't and you're not.

I loved this book. I would give anything to be able to see the world the way Jan Frazier sees it. This is written almost like a diary as she tests out her new consciousness minus fear. I know this sort of thing can happen, but I think for most people, we get glimpses at times when consciousness expands. Just having those occasional glimpses gives me hope and assurance that life is so much more than the three dimensional, silly ego fearful world we live pretty much full time. Jan shows that it doesn't have to be that way. This other way, other world without fear is available to us right at this very moment. I love the way she describes it like a tall wall and that we simply must fully drop our worries and cares and lean into that wall and suddenly it can fall away. I like that image. You don't have to be perfect, or go to church, or be a good person, or follow a guru; you just must surrender and let it go. I read this book last winter during the height of the economic meltdown and it carried me through with a sense that things would be okay no matter. Highly recommended, especially if you've had glimpses, but want to know what life full time in an awakened state is like.
