As you have seen under "Why The Way Now", The Way fits into many literary genres. Below we have taken the top performers from the most profitable category of self-help and done a comparison. While the comparison exposes the weaknesses in these books, it is important to note that all of these books are wonderful and contain great wisdom. We have learned from each and everyone and included their virtues within The Way. We also understand that some of these books have been out for many years. However, this is not an issue as all the past and contemporary books have the same weakness when compared to The Way.
That weakness is that they all focus on one or only a few key concepts and most often do not include a real plan on how to integrate the message into our lives. All the books in these genres share the flaw of being incomplete when compared to The Way. In all human history, there has never been a single book, or even a small group of books, that covers the diversity of critical information we so desperately need to know that is found within The Way. We can see The Way as the master key that unlocks all the knowledge we most desperately need. The Way is The One Book to Rule Them All (hee-hee in a good way!)
The Way is larger than most books because it's a Complete Solution. It’s a Transformative Guide and Life Reference that includes details and lists that you will need at different times throughout your life. You would need many hundreds of books to find the bits of knowledge condensed within The Way and even then you would still be missing pieces. In the end, The Way save you time and money because it's a complete solution.
