Editorial Reviews

Review

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. --Emmet Fox

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. --Louise Hay

From the Publisher

Charles William Daniel (1871-1955) was a maverick free-thinker whose tiny publishing house had august links with many of the most influential thinkers and movements of the 20th century. To wit, copies of Daniel's books could be found in the library at Ghandi's ashram. This spirit lived on after his death, and the company maintained its niche by publishing definitive texts on a variety of spiritual and esoteric subjects. Many of these titles, notably those on Aromatherapy and Bach Flower remedies, have become standard works on the subject. When the C.W. Daniel list went looking for a new home, the Vermilion and Rider imprints were the natural place for this wonderful collection of authors. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I have read many self development books yet it was this book that made me finally understand how simple it really is. There are distinct Laws of the Universe that when acknowledged and applied correctly will bring you everything that is yours by Divine Right.

As a society in general, we have been led to believe that life is much more difficult than it really is. Success in all areas of your Life is not hard to attain at all-- that is of course, if you know the game and how to play it!

Read this book and change the way you look at yourself and more importantly how you look at every situation. Remember - it's not the situation- it's how you look at the situation that shapes your destiny.

I can not stress enough the positive impact that you will see happen in your life and the people's lives around you when you read this book and apply the principles and affirmations. You will begin to see all your dreams start to come true right before your eyes and you'll find yourself saying, "I can't believe it was that simple..."

I thank K. Orlich for recommending this book to me...and I thank Amazon.com for always having it in stock as I have bought a copy for every team member, employee and recommended it passionately to strangers Read this simple book--and more importantly-- know that it really is as simply as applying what you have learned and you will truly change your life... I feel like I am an educated, well-coached, team member w/ the Universe and that is the best bonus. Feeling the MOJO, understanding the game and enjoying LIFE is really so sweet ~ sweeter than the successes the divine path you will LIVE and see cleared for you.

HEY GUYS!!
This is Zane Aveton. it is now 2016 and I'm checking in to say hello and let you know that I am still 100% a fan of this book and how it simple truths have continued to guide me for effectively throughout my life.

Though not a large book, this is a very worthwhile read and easily digested in bites. So if you only have small bits of time to sit and read, you won't get lost with this one.

In rebuttal of previous negative reviews, part of my background and education is a degree in Theology, and further studies into world religions and ancient texts. As someone who understands extensive biblical study - and I mean cross referencing original greek, aramaic and hebrew texts, as well as many, many authors and researchers works, writing theses and all the other such efforts required in such education and credentials, I still find this book compelling.

It was not the easiest read for me initially as Florence speaks in terms of things that I had never, at the time, really heard much of before. It was a new kind of thinking for me. The only reason why I was reading the book was because an 80+ year old lady recommended it to me and asked me to.

I found myself challenged in thought/perception, moral philosophy and interpretation by a book written in 1925! And unlike anything I had read up until that time. There were times I was very frustrated by what I read. Yet, in the end, I not only could not argue with her assertions and interpretations, I found truth and peace in them. The experience catalytically changed my perspective, opened my world and even improved my life in doing so. Today, there is no other book in my collection (of multiple bookcases of various sources) with more permanently housed bookmarks and notations. I could not now recommend a book more highly than this one for self-improvement. It is very positively written with hope and love. Remember that the creation of reality begins with the foundation of thought.

I came acroos this book by accident, I bought it with several others and it stayed on by bookshelf for a long time, a time in which I was miserable and just didn't see any way out. Then one day I ran across it, I began reading it in bed, figuring I would be through it that night since it was less than 100 pages. Boy was I wrong. I began repeating the passages and it was like a burden was lifted off of my shoulders, I cried like I was finally free of all of the negative things in my life and that I was finaly going to get everything I wanted, even if it was not mine by devine right. This book will enlighten you and show you that everything that you want may just make you miserable and you'll regret it if you don't ask for things that really belong to you. How did this book change my life? After being single for a long time and dating all the wrong men, I met the man who was mine by divine right. I studied this book nightly before we met, I was even dating a Doctor and then I met my husband and knew that he was the one. And the wierd part was he had just moved from Cocoa Beach Florida, and I lived near Chicago, and we met in the middle of winter. He told me he quit his job and moved up here because he knew there was a reason. The reason was to find me. So when I concentrate and know that I can have it all, it comes true with amazing accuracy. It's true, life is a game and you need this "game manual" to show you how it's played.

Florence Scovel Shinn brings a true and divine book to humanity in order to rise above all negativity and embrace our true heritage as divine beings.

This wonderful gem of a book covers the law of prosperity, the power of the word, the law of nonresistance, the laws of karma and forgiveness, impressing the subconscious mind, love, intuition and your inner guidance, your divine self expression and denials and affirmations. The beautiful and beneficial teachings quote the words of Jesus Christ many times, explaining their meaning and application in your life. This is an important book to refer back to whenever you are in doubt, as well as if you are trying to figure out how to move forward on your path with the ease, prosperity, and divine purpose you have.

Highly recommended for its unfailing Divine Truth.
