Summary:
"For many years, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer's fans have wondered when he would write a memoir. Well, after four decades as a teacher of self-empowerment and the best-selling author of more than 40 books, Wayne has finally done just that! However, he has written it in a way that only he can-with a remarkable take-home message for his longtime followers and new readers alike-and the result is an exciting new twist on the old format. Rather than a plain old memoir, Wayne has gathered together quantum-moment recollections. In this revealing and engaging book, Wayne shares dozens of events from his life, from the time he was a little boy in Detroit up to present day. In unflinching detail, he relates his vivid impressions of encountering many forks in the road, taking readers with him into these formative experiences. Yet then he views the events from his current perspective, noting what lessons he ultimately learned, as well as how he has made the resulting wisdom available to millions via his lifelong dedication to service. As a reader, you will feel as if you are right there with Wayne, perusing his personal photo album and hearing about his family, his time in the service, how he writes his best-selling books, and so much more. In the process, you'll be inspired to look back at your own life to see how everything you have experienced has led you to where you are right now. Wayne has discovered that there are no accidents. Although we may not be aware of who or what is "moving the checkers, " life has a purpose, and each step of our journey has something to teach us. As he says, "I wasn't aware of all of the future implications that these early experiences were to offer me. Now, from a position of being able to see much more clearly, I know that every single encounter, every challenge, and every situation are all spectacular threads in the tapestry that represents and defines my life, and I am deeply grateful for all of it." I Can See Clearly Now is an intimate look at an amazing teacher, but it also holds the key for seekers on a personal path of enlightenment. Wayne offers up his own life as an example of how we can all recognize the hand of the Divine steering our individual courses, helping us accomplish the mission we came here to fulfill"--

Booklist Review

In this memoir, best-selling author and self-help guru Dyer writes about where he came from and how he got to be who he is but that doesn't mean he's not teaching his readers at the same time. Dyer picks dozens of episodes from his life and follows each ­several-page remembrance with an explanation of why the event was key and how it pushed him along his path. Coming from a broken home and spending much of his childhood in foster care, Dyer didn't have a road map for success. Yet, by following his instincts, feeling the fear and doing things anyway, and trying to come from a place of service rather than acquisition, he became one of the best-known names in the self-help industry. Along with writing about his successes, Dyer dips into what some might construe as less-stellar moments ­illness, marital strife but he explains how these events had their own brand of both purpose and meaning. Those on a spiritual path will find this a satisfying stop.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2014 Booklist
