Informal, friendly, and humorous, this little book has inspired thousands since its 1925 publication. Its practical examples show how positive attitudes can make you a "winner" in life. Self-improvement expert Norman Vincent Peale endorsed it as an essential guide, helping readers to "find prosperity, solve problems, have better health."

This Dover Edition, first published in 2008, is an unabridged republication of the work, originally published by Florence Scovel Shinn in 1925.

About the Author

Florence Scovel Shinn was born in Camden, New Jersey, in 1871. Shinn spent many years working as an artist and illustrator of children's literature in New York City before writing her New Thought classic, The Game of Life and How to Play It in 1925. Shinn went on to write three more books, all of which are included in this volume: Your Word Is Your Wand (1928), The Secret Door to Success (1940), and The Power of the Spoken Word (1944), a posthumous work. Shinn also became widely regarded as an important American spiritual teacher and lecturer. She died in New York City in 1940.

    A well written book, that is simple and direct in its approach. As relevant today, as it was when first written. A great reference book.
