Wishes Fulfilled reminds me of a map more than a book. That is not to say that it's not good or worth your while. In fact, I feel quite the opposite (particularly having already taken the same journey described in Wishes Fulfilled, which is why I was so curious about it and had to read it). There are an awful lot of books about manifestation out there, and I've read many of them. Too many of them. Most fall short or entirely miss the mark in the way that a recipe for chicken soup would fall short or miss the mark if it did not include seasonings and chicken. Yes, chicken! Imagine a recipe for chicken soup that did not have chicken and what you have is a perfect analogy of my thoughts on most manifesting books save this one.
So what sets Wishes Fulfilled apart? The beginning of Wishes Fulfilled which has a focus on the spiritual aspect, something I've only come across thus far in the writings of Neville Goddard (Power of Awareness and Your Faith is Your Fortune being my two absolute favorites) which is why it seems perfect to me that a man as spiritual as Wayne Dyer would embrace Neville in Wishes Fulfilled. Neville focused greatly on us as spiritual beings and that was the core of his teachings. Wishes Fulfilled does the same with a focus on our concept of ourselves and looking to our higher self. That is the key ingredient. While Wishes Fulfilled really only gives a general map here rather than a to do list, which may or may not leave some a bit lost, it has been done well simply because it is an individual journey we each have to take and it would be unique to each of us. Dying to Be Me by Anita Moorjani is an astounding account of Anita's specific journey, which IMHO is the best guide I've ever read on getting in touch with one's greater/higher self and, by default, it serves as a map all of us can follow. As for the rest of Wishes Fulfilled, which appears to built on the foundation of Neville Goddard put forth decades ago, it truly embraces the many ways one manifests that which they desire. It's more than a concept of Law of Attraction and/or manifesting (what most books are IMHO). Wishes Fulfilled teaches the reader how to become in tune with what they are seeking so that you no longer are seeking it but rather you become one with it.
