“The problems that most people have in life are not from 'lack of power' but from the abuse/misuse of the power that they already have. Mr. Finley shows us how to nip this in the bud, by raising our altitude to the right level. This seemingly simple act transforms our minds and outer lives.”

Letting Go: A Little Bit at a Time, by Guy Finley, works because it's honest, natural, real, and wise!”
