|Reviews of Anatomy of Desire|
A review by Neale Donald Walsch, author of the Conversations with God series: “Conversations with God says that happiness is not getting what you want, it is wanting what you get… Few books do as good a job, as quickly, of reconnecting us with that wisdom than this entry by Gina Lake… The practical information in this book demystifies desire and helped me to distinguish between the fear-driven desires of the ego and the urges of essence. Anatomy of Desire is an easy, quick read that has had a lasting impact on me. I highly recommend it…It offers a simple, accessible, articulate, and interesting take on the very human experience of desire and gives us the tools to make clear choices about how we want to live our lives. An easy, excellent read.”
"I'm a former Law of Attraction teacher, and I love this book! Gina Lake does a brilliant job of explaining desire. When you understand desire there is no need to manage it or focus on it the way most Law of Attraction experts teach it. If you have been involved in Law of Attraction and are at a place where it doesn't serve you as well as it used to, this is the book for you! The clarity that you will receive from this book is priceless. This book is a must read!" –Fred Morton
“This is an excellent book! I love Gina's books, and this one was one of the most transformative for me. Just like Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now, this book really helped me understand my ego and its thoughts and desires and begin to realize that I am not my thoughts. At first some of the ideas in this book surprised me because, as a follower of the Law of Attraction, I was under the impression that to be happy I had to get what I want. This book teaches you to be happy whether you get what you want or not, and for that it is a true gem. Happiness doesn't have anything to do with what you have—happiness is our natural state :) After reading this book I've ordered just about every book that Gina Lake has published, and they do not disappoint! P.S. If you don't want to get over stress and suffering, then don't read this book!” –Shari Blake
“Gina states clearly how our conditioned desires interfere with our happiness and cloud the truth of our Essence. As Gina explains, ‘The ego uses fear to inspire you to take action, while essence inspires you through feelings of joy, excitement, happiness, and elation.’ Gina's warmth and love permeates throughout every page, captivating the reader to absorb the depth of her wisdom, moving one beyond mere words to truth itself. Anatomy of Desire guides one through the maze of egoic desires to the desires of essence. A marvelous read and one that may be referred to often.” –Andrew Schultz
"Anatomy of Desire has inspired me deeply and left a lasting impact. If I feel myself slipping or struggling with a specific issue, all I have to do is open this book and read a couple of pages. There is gold everywhere throughout this book, so I let it open where it may and always find the perfect message for me.” –Kathy A.
