Too much religious mumbo jumbo

I've loved Van Tharp's technical work on trading, but you don't get much of it in this book. 

This book started to lose me after it started talking about miracles. I stopped completely around 2/3 of the way through after I was told that I have a low level of consciousness because I'm an atheist.  

Van Tharp seems to advocate that believing in something higher will improve your trading, even if that something you believe in is actual not true. I can understand that people who truly believe in god get great psychological benefits from doing so, but that doesn't mean I want to change my beliefs to something I have always believed to be false simply because Van Tharp believes it will make me a better trader. 

I really wish Van Tharp could offer a book on improving oneself without having to resort to religious beliefs. 

After reading a few books by Van Tharp I can also say that they are sounding more and more like an infomercial for his courses. 

If you are after a good Van Tharp book read 'Trading your way to financial freedom' and leave it that.

Deep and esoteric but possibly life changing

Get ready for some pretty esoteric stuff but at its core this book is about self development and improvement that will affect ones consciousness during trading and for life in general.
