Beyond Human could be just another "think positive" Law of Attraction self-help book. Thankfully, it goes "beyond" simple "just think good thoughts" advice and provides some innovative tools and ways of approaching things that you might not have heard of before.

Right off the bat, the author, Jaden Rose Phoenix, sets herself apart by commenting on the lack of "out of the box" thinking that traps so many people in mediocrity. If more people took her advice on just trying new things to solve problems, the world would probably be a better place.

If there's one big drawback to the book, it appears that it has been written for folks who are already familiar with the Law of Attraction as a concept and healing energy. Those who are new to these things might be confused by some of what she talks about. I also don't agree with some of her "theology" (for one, I do think a person can have a real need to "fire" bad spirit guides), but that's a minor nitpick.

If you've tried other Law of Attraction techniques and felt them fall flat, this book might provide some new tools that could work better. I was never a huge fan of simplistic "just think positive" pat advice anyway, so I'm glad to see books that offer something more.
