      This is a terrific book, well written, jargon free, smooth and flowing. It has King's take on Hawaiian shamanism which is not so different from any other kind of shamanism, though the intricacies of it are fascinating as all such intricacies are. My feeling is that the real value of this book lies in King's writing and the way he understands his subject. I found clear and usable answers to questions that have deviled me for years. I will read this book more than once, maybe more than twice, and [...]

      Love this bookI have this book a 5 star rating because it deserves it. The book i have found to be most effective if you do the exercises as you go through the book. They surprisingly works. And the Aloha practice really does change your out look. I bought this book because of a workshop that I did about time travel. When I heard one of the participants suggest cultural appropriation, I search for what I heard maybe the original source, to see what the Hawaiian view was on changing your past and [...]

      One of the best books I have ever read. It made so much sense and was very motivating. I don't normally read motivational books and didn't read it for that reason but it made a difference to me.

      I have to confess, I bought this less for the self help aspects of it than for the fact I know next to nothing about indigenous Polynesian culture. After reading this, I’m still not sure I know much. Every chapter opens with some Hawaiian saying or belief and then expounds on it. It’s much like almost any other self help/ self actualization/ positive thinking text. They’re all basically very similar. How to be happier. How to get more inner strength. How to manage money etc. I didn’t see [...]

      The wealth of knowledge held in this book is awesome into the Hawaiian healing art of Huna (folk medicine) and how to apply it. I felt that it was somewhat draggy as it seemed to repeat things over and over of how to believe and to perform. Could have been written with less space to be more tightly woven and concise. Maybe the truths are so simple the author needed to reiterate them. That being said, there is wisdom in the principles.

      The positive and optimistic worldview of the Hawaiians continued to impress me. Very uplifting.

      Interesting book however the fact that the print is in blue makes it somewhat irritating to read. But overall its an okay to good read.
