I've enjoyed Dyer's works for many years. A good man who made a lot of sense. I've been working on myself for mucho years. Keeping a balance and where one is in their lives.

I bet you can find a lot of great YouTube videos of lectures he's given and interviews he's done.

I love Wayne Dyer. The first book I read was in the 1970's, "Your Erroneous Zones." That book was life changing for me, and I still love and recommend it.

It's about taking control of your life, empowering yourself, knowing YOU (we) make the choice as to what we do, how we feel, and controlling our negative thoughts. I think it was one of his best books.

Could it have been his first book? I know of it but don't think I ever read it. Watched Wayne often on PBS. He was/is a great motivator. I've done so much motivation work over my life. Many of my dreams never materialized but they were there...

My mom read most of Wayne's books, and she passed the basic knowledge on to me. I don't actually remember reading any of his books, but his work has had such a profound effect on my mom that I just learned to listen to her. Lol. I think he was a great motivational speaker, and he will be missed by many. That's not to say that he never wrote anything contradictory. I really don't know about that. What came through to me was the good stuff which I needed to learn. One of my favorite quotes of his was: "What other people think of you is none of your business". Simple, yet profound.

It was one of his first book, I first read it in the 1970s. I have read many of his books over the years, and seen him often on PBS, but for me, this remains his most influential work and left a lifelong impression. I highly recommend it.

Your Erroneous Zones, Pulling Your Own Strings, and The Sky's The Limit .... read them in the 70's after watching him on daytime talk show, where he became somewhat of a regular. It changed my life and my husband's. May be somewhat responsible for us building a happy 44 year long relationship (and still going). I followed him after that, read a few more of his books along the way and even saw him lecture once in a town near where I live.

I still recommend the three books listed above. I reread parts of them now and again.
