Seventeen years ago I was a seriously depressed young mother facing a devastating divorce when I happened to come across this book in a pharmacy. When I first opened the book and began reading, I had the first glimmering of hope that I had had in a long time, and this book eventually changed my life, much for the better! Although Dr. Peale's way of writing would seem somewhat old-fashioned to modern-minded people, his basic message is of hope, and if you follow his instructions, you CAN change your life! Dr. Peale encourages people to "expect a miracle" and "act as if" a miracle can happen -- and it CAN! This book is a classic, I'm so glad to see Amazon is selling it, and I cannot recommend it highly enough! Why not try it yourself, and find out? You can buy a used copy of the original here at Amazon for .01 cents! You have nothing to lose -- and everything to gain.
