Overview

This is an illustrated collection of Florence Scovel Shinn's three esoteric books.
The Game of Life, Your Word is your Wand and The Secret Door to Success. Scovel Shinn's writing shares some common beliefs with Mary Baker Eddy, and there is some shared terminology. eg. 'Infinite Spirit', 'Mortal Mind', 'Treatment', 'Demonstration' and 'Native Nothingness'. However her writing style is more familiar and less verbose than that of Mary Baker Eddy.
Also Scovel Shinn makes less of the illusion of matter, an argument that dominates Mary Baker Eddy's work Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures.
Scovel Shinn's emphasis on the power of the spoken word may have been influenced by Emma Curtis Hopkins.
Florence Scovel's books are widely discussed and admired in Unity Churches around the globe.

Editorial Reviews

Emmet Fox
One secret of her success was that she was always herself . . . colloquial, informal, friendly, and humorous. She herself was very spiritual . . . and taught by familiar, practical, and everyday examples.
Louise L. Hay
By studying and practicing the principles laid down in this book, one may find prosperity, solve problems, have better health, achieve personal relations-in a word, win the game of life. --Norman Vincent Peale

The Game of Life and How to Play It, by Florence Scovel Shinn, helped me crystallize my own thinking and moved me forward on the path to where I am today.

After marriage they moved into a studio apartment at 112 Waverly Place, near Washington Square, New York. Everett built a theatre next door, and wrote three plays in which Florence played a leading role. Everett Shinn became known as a member of the Ashcan School of art, and Florence worked as an illustrator. They were divorced in 1912.
In ear earlier years Florence Scovel Shinn worked an artist and book illustrator. Later in her middle years she became a New Thought spiritual teacher and metaphysical writer. In esoteric circles, she is best known for her first book, The Game of Life and How to Play It.
