Format: Paperback
Knowing I'm a psychology student with a big interest in the world of the subconscious, a friend of mine purchased this book for me as a gift, due to the huge number of positive reviews. It's a shame that when a bad review is given, fans of the book automatically give the negative review an "unhelpful" rating, in order to bury it where buyers will never see the dissent unless they want to wade through 250+ reviews to find it. Whether or not something is helpful is not automatically equal to whether or not you agree with it.

Fact 1: This book is not psychology, not even pop-psychology. It does not discuss the intricacies of the subconscious mind or how to access it on any real or deep level. It is at best, the same New Age "philosophy" that has since been rewritten in various forms, the newest and most popular being "The Secret". The philosophy: whatever you think comes true. If you find this belief as tired and unfounded as I do, skip this book. Murphy takes it farther than most, however, even going so far as to say that using willpower and putting real-world effort into success will DEFEAT your subconscious mind and result in your continued suffering. If you work hard for something, after all, it must mean that you wanted to struggle!

Fact 2: Even if that's what you're looking for, skip this book anyway. Why? Murphy's text just repeats the same thing over and over, with no real technique presented outside of telling you to repeat "prayers" to yourself over and over again throughout the day. There are many other New Age books out there that will undoubtedly give you a MUCH better overview and "how-to" if you actually believe in this stuff.

Fact 3: If you're not looking for a scientific book, that's fine, but the problem is that Murphy claims this book IS scientific.

This is the best book I have read in a very long time and I read ALOT. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!!!!!! If you don't learn how to change yourself and your life with this book then you don't really want to change. This book has changed my mind set and the way I think and look at things in just a few days of starting to read it. I am almost done and not looking forward to the book ending. The information I got from this book is life changing and so awesome. I have been doing the exercises and lessons and I am a changed person. I am happy, healthy, at peace, content, and living life large and in charge. I am the only one in control of me and it sure does feel good. No one can hurt you or do anything to you unless you allow them to and it is all in the way you think and see things. Trust me and buy this book so you too can be happy, in control of your own life and thoughts, be healthy and have everything you could ever want or need. Joseph Murphy has written a wonderful book that will inspire and motivate you to be the person you are truly meant to be which can only make you happy. I know, I did it and am going to continue to do it for the rest of my life and only wish I had this book 53 years ago because I wasted alot of time being depressed and unhappy, unhealthy, etc. and I need not have been any of those things. Thank you Joseph Murphy and I can't wait for another inspiring and motivational book!!

This is the best book I have ever read about how your mind works.
I have read many self help books but this is the only one that explains how your mind and subconcious mind work in a sinple step by step method that can be put to use. I have purchased copies for friends and family.
And I never realized how negative my own words were until reading this book.

Format: Paperback
This is a very powerful book which explains how powerful our thoughts are and how important it is to think positively. None of us can deny responsibility for where we are in life. We have created our lives and lifestyles by the way we think. Nothing happnes by chance. There is no such thing as good luck or bad luck. There is a reason for everything. (The law of cause and effect) Our thinking is the cause and where we are in life is the effect. Think positively and you get positive results, think negativley and you get negative results. The good news is that regardless of the past, no matter how negative it has been, or how many times we have failed, we can change course at any time and redirect our lives, by changing what we put into our minds and by how we talk to ourselves. Thank you Mr Murphy for giving me the inspiration to get my first book published, and thank you for your valuable insights.

I loved this book. Similar to "the Secret" but this book goes into depth. It also gives lots of examples which is helpful and many ways to practice. I highly recommended this book to anyone who is willing to change their mindset for success, over happiness, conquering fears, manifesting their dreams, and ultimately living an abundant life in all aspects.

Format: Paperback
This book is actually two previously published books: The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, originally published in 1963, and How to Attract Money, originally published in 1955. This new compilation expertly presents modern day knowledge and fascinating information about the power of our hidden subconscious minds. Murphy, (1898-1981) a new thought minister, believed that the subconscious mind is a darkroom where we develop the images that are to be played out in real life. The conscious mind sees an event, takes a picture of it and remembers it, while the subconscious mind works backward, seeing something before it happens (and this is why intuition is infallible). The subconscious responds to habit and regular habitual thinking. It is totally neutral in a moral sense, and is happy to adopt any habit as normal - whether good or bad. Unaware of our negative thoughts, we let them drop into our subconscious in every minute of our lives, and then are surprised when they find expression in daily experiences and relationships. When we become aware of this process and unearth the gems of knowledge that are hidden, we can become free from the patterns that we have created. A great read with many useful techniques and ideas.
