It's such a simple and effective concept, that positive thinking creates a positive life, yet hard to do at times- which is a good reason alone to read this book. Most everything we accomplish each day starts out as a thought. Thoughts flash across our minds each day, all day long, and directly influence how we feel and what we do. So, if you spend your day thinking about negative things, expect to feel bad. On the other hand, if you spend your day concentrating on positive things, good things will happen. And that's basically the purposeand premise of this book- to change your thinking for the better, which in turn will influences your life. The book will "reset your sights" so to speak. Each chapter of the book tackles important life issues, such as worrying, creating happiness, having energy, etc. Examples of the principles abound, and each chapter ends with a nice summary. An inspiring and entertaining read, I recommend this book to anyone who needs a little nudge in the direction of positive thinking. Know though, that there is a definite religious tone throughout the book, which could bother some. Those looking for something a little more in the physical rather than cognitive realm to pick you up, might be better off with a book like "Exercise Beats Depression".

I have read the "Power of Positive Thinking" numerous times and I never get tired of it's content. It's teachings and principles are as prudent today as when it was written - perhaps more so. Each reading helps me to get a new and stronger perspective of how to, first, think, then live in accordance with "nature's" laws (or spiritual). When the "going gets tough", I find it a book of much inspiration to keep my thinking up there and in positive, optimistic and overcoming framework. This book is one of my reading "staples" and is always kept in front on my bookshelf for an uplift when needed. Dr. Peale certainly understood the human person, our frailities - how life could be for us all and what it doesn't have to be, based on spiritual teachings - not religion. A must read often.

Norman Vincent Peale's book (CD) is a timeless, very relevant read. I recently faced a cancer scare and reading his book gave me a lot of hope. He integrates the spirtual with the practical and provides a useful tool to living well. I highly recommend this book to anyone ready to move to the next level in their life.

I like the Christian emphasis in this audio program, but prefer Optimal Thinking to positive thinking because it stops me from settling for second best.

This book, along with prayer and my faith, has truly changed the way I live and doing things. I have been so enlighten by the words of Mr. Peale. I have learned to have self confidence, how to eliminate my stress and live of life of optimism, zest, and most of all hope. I would recommend it highly even if you possess all of the things listed above.

The Power of Positive Thinking changed my life. As a negative thinker and self doubter, I was plagued with depression and didn't live up to my potential. I've read the book many times and listened to the tapes over and over. Personally I love that Christian principals are included but a non Christian will learn just as much from this wonderful book.
