    Just wanted to say thank you for your book. I’ve had a break-through in
    practicing classical guitar after reading “With Your Own Two Hands.” I’m a
    nurse as well as a musician and was sitting in our hospital cafeteria in
    tears reading the first chapter-someone finally described to me what was
    going on in my psyche about practicing. From one soul to another soul: Thank you.

    I’m honor to send you a message Mr. Bernstein.
    I’m a korean student who goes to Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Boston, majoring piano.
    I read your book already 5 times, and it is always fresh and helpful.
    Thank you for this great book and pure teaching.

  • “Helps you define your dream and get you started with actually making the steps to fulfill that dream. Want to get started working on your dream? Get this book!” Peter Kahuria (OK, USA)

  • “Great tool for establishing dreams suitable for junior high students through college and adult seekers. Positive affirmations and simple step by step activities make this a must have tool for those ready to plan for future, write a practical life plan, or even write a book!”

    Dr. Deborah De Vries, School Trustee and College Instructor

  • “This is a serious “self-help” formula that I believe could actually make a reader’s dreams come true, IF they seriously followed the instructions of the author. In my opinion, this book often reads like “The Power of Now” or “A Course in Miracles” — which one should consider as a “good thing.” After all, “The Power of Now” and “A Course in Miracles” did positively transform thousands of lives!”

  • The Newest Secret is all about achieving your true potential. We all dream of things we would like to do or be, and often life events get in the way of realizing longed for goals. Through fascinating stories, quotes from many famous people, and clearly defined exercises, Ms. Nelson provides you with a plan to achieve the success you seek. I gave a copy to a friend who used it to quit smoking. I gave it to a music professor who is helping her students with performance goals. My daughter has used it to create a citywide basketball program for children. The beauty of this treasure trove is that it can be used by anyone for any situation. I highly recommend it.
