Good follow up to The Big Leap

Good follow up the author’s previous book around the same topic. Similar content but with more application. If you were to only purchase/listen to one, I preferred The Big Leap for the theory. The value in this book I think is to actually do the exercises suggested.

powerful and simple

I love the simplicity of this book. I feel like it gets to the heart of Gay's teachings and provids practical tools that resonate with me such that I'm still using them months later. He always has insightful messages, but his Genius Move in this book is a powerful practice that immediately shifts me into creating what I really want. I highly recommend this book!

I can see the value of making the mind body connection through doing the exercises .

Great follow up to the Big Leap!

Love! Next step after The Big Leap.

I got bored with the intro of The Big Leap so I stopped reading it. But I was in an online book challenge so I decided to give it another chance. So happy I did! Really gives you the tools to end negative thinking (for me, better than anything else I have found). Ended up loving it.

The Joy of Genius takes it to the next level. I find as I build my muscle to end negative thinking, it frees up all this powerful energy that can be used to create anything desired. Creativity flows. It puts me into flow state more often, which can be harnessed for creative problem-solving, better focus and the ability to complete tasks and goals easier - and just living life lighter.

Still reading The Joy of Genius and I grabbed the new book Conscious Luck that just came out because that looks amazing too. I think of it as the next step on the journey.

Very basic

The idea is accept the things you cannot control and breath deep. Thats pretty much the book.

Author regularly speaks of things he doesn't understand sufficiently. I had to quit early.

Good intention

I found it very very boring though. Nothing strikes me as genius plan. Nothing special.

powerful insights

This was powerful for me in showing me the importance of living life fully expressing my creative energy. And that my lack of joy and fulfillment and addictions is the result of my creative energy being smothered.
