'I'm a huge fan of this book. Chris Mackey has blended his work on synchronicity with the field of positive psychology in a way that is informative and inspiring. Looking back, I've had many moments of synchronicity in my life's journey - some after great triumph, others after great pain. This book has helped me to really understand what occurred and has taught me how to move forward in ways that will make better use of the future moments of synchronicity. As Mackey so eloquently says "There's much to be gained from taking an optimistic perspective" and this book will help you do just that. Thanks Chris for your wisdom!'
