I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes "Think and Grow Rich", "Creative Visualization", "Manifest Your Destiny", or "As a Man Thinketh".
If we let our ego rule our lives, we are constantly competing. That is a game we will never win. There will always be someone who has more, has done more, is better educated or younger, better looking, etc. We must learn that there is a higher purpose in life and we need to learn how to supress our ego and follow the higher purpose.
There are some great insights about life and how to live it. However since it represents a way of thinking that will be new to most people, it takes some time to read and absorb.
It is well worth the effort if you approach the subject with an open mind. It is a book to be studied. The concepts will take time to sink into our subconscious mind. But if you will follow the teachings of the book, you will discover true magic.
Andersen kicks off his book with this passage which is the essence of what he tries to help the reader with:
"The man who lives through reaction to the world about him is the victim of every change in his environment, now happy, now sad, now victorious, now defeated, affected but never affecting. He may live many years in this manner, rapt with sensory perception and the ups and downs of his surface self, but one day pain so outweighs pleasure that he suddenly perceives his ego is illusory, a product of outside circumstances only. Then he either sinks into complete animal lethargy or turning away from the senses, seeks inner awareness and self-mastery. Then he is on the road to really living, truly becoming; then he begins to uncover his real potential; then he discovers the miracle of his own consciousness, the magic of his mind."
