This book contains pseudo science which may or may not be true. I would advise one to take the author's ideas with a pinch of salt. Eg transmutation of sex. sorry I believe a good amount of focus and then relaxation is good for the body and mind.

Also, it talks about how his deaf boy starts to hear again through desires. Sorry desire is one of them but the author play a part in helping his boy to listen (parent's support, positiveness) and the most impt factor is medical advancement.

The book talks a lot about desires and faiths. if you think about it, some desires are easily achieveable but some are not. Eg if you desired to be a truck driver, you will most likely be one cos it's attainable. but if your desires are far greater, then you need more concrete actions. ( )

I'm listening to this as an audiobook while getting other things done. It was written in 1938 and I don't think has aged well, in regards to writing style. However you can't take a step into positive thinking/learned happiness/learned optimism waters without hearing about this book. It seems to be the primordial well from which all other positive thinking guides spring. So, I'm listening to it mostly as research so I know what the heck everyone is talking about. ( )

I was interested to read this because it inspired Bad Brains. Makes some good points and reiterates some ideas I've read in other books of the genre. ( )

The book was written just after The Great Depression of the 1930s, however, much of its advice is still relevant today. There are a few dated areas, but there are small, minor, and far-between. This book is as good today as it was then. ( )
