Genevieve Behrend is a pioneer in the field of "Mental Science", a "New Thought" discipline, that was founded by Thomas Troward.
She mostly teachs visualization in this book, the premise that all that you visualize comes to being. I think she also does it well in this book. She is also mentioned in Rhonda Byrne's best seller, "The Secret".
Because Behrend was broke, she claimed she used the technic of visualization to get the money that she needed to travel from the U.S. to England to study with him. She claims to have visualized every morning and night, that she was counting out twenty, one thousand dollar bills, buying the ticket, taking the ship across the sea, and becoming Troward's student.
I like the older books on the subject, probably because I like the style of writing, and for this reason, I'm also sure that a lot of people aren't going to like this book. These folks find the style too archaic. I see this complaint a lot concerning older styles of writing.
So if you don't mind a little bit of an old way of expression, I am sure you will enjoy this book. Besides, the price is right.
