Nine Insights for a Happy and Successful Life, By: Mitchell Earl Gibson, MD

July 08, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 154

If thoughts were analogous to light energy, then the clarity of logic and reason presented in this book would have a prismatic effect, like crystals of truth; resulting in human behavior being categorized like a rainbow of colorful deductions. It is this cognitive filter in which Dr. Mitchell Earl Gibson has articulated and created in his book titled, Nine Insights for a Happy and Successful Life.

Dr. Gibson has compiled these fundamental characteristics by having seen people during his thousands of professional encounters engulfing a vast spectrum of clients. In a terse, fast reading assembly of his "Nine Insights," he states his insight then follows by exemplifying it in a fascinating way; having well-known examples from history, culture, and his own personal experiences providing his quod erat demonstrandum (QED).

From the onset of the book, Dr. Gibson postures his conclusions with humility and respect for the readers' intelligence. By doing this, he is neither preaching to his readers nor pontificating his own values; he is simply explaining what he has seen and what he believes. This makes Nine Insightsan inviting and intriguing book to read. For example, his "Insight Number Seven: When dreams speak to you, listen carefully" was particularly interesting due to his examples used to substantiate his point. He wrote that Paul McCartney dreamed his song Yesterday, Robert Louis Stevenson dreamed his plot for The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and people made millions of dollars off of solutions to problems presented to them while sleeping.

Many people, philosophers, scientists and historians, to name just a few groups, have written about the dream state. As well as each of us have had our own experiences with dreams; making this not the most radical of insights. However, a most original insight is "Regularly giving away a small portion of your wealth helps to prevent the energy of chaos from building up in your life." The manner in which this is explained is totally captivating and resonates in my mind as being something obvious but at the same time unperceived. I'll give you a hint: It has to do with the energy of money.

To learn more about who you are, the other insights not mentioned in this review, and how Dr. Mitchell Earl Gibson ties money into personal chaos, I strongly recommend reading Nine Insights for a Happy and Successful Life. In a semantically mathematical way, I have now made my recommendation as being what Dr. Gibson would agree as a tenth insight, "Read this book."
