Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Still bursting with enthusiasm at 92, Peale ( The Power of Positive Thinking, LJ 10/1/52) agains jumps on the bandwagon of the you-can-do-it-if-you-think-you-can approach. Here Peale strings together dozens of personal success stories (``success'' is always materialistic) that make readers feel good. Believing (in yourself, others, values, God) is all-important, and the stories of wealthy business executives who made it on their own grab center stage. Peale even takes credit for the healing approaches of Norman Cousins and Bernie Siegel by claiming that their ideas were his all along. The writing and editing are careless; in one chapter Peale presents 11 components of the Happiness Mix, but only six are listed in the chapter summary. There's too much name-dropping, e.g., ``philosopher A.B. Zu Tavern'' (who's he?). Peale devotees will love it.-- Linda Beck, Indian Valley P.L., Telford, Pa.

    I Also Recommend:

    This book is a must read and you will find yourself continually referring back to it. Each time you refer back to it you will find new inspiration and new motivation.

    This book is a must have for anyone's library, not only for you, but for everyone else in your family too. Dr. Peale shares and offers not only true motivational stories, but inspirational passages that are then blended with common sense offered up to the reader in a unique timely fashion. The information within this book is not only valuable now, but will be even more so into the distant future, for whoever will be so fortunate to buy a copy of it and then read it.
