About the Author

The cover art is so blurry and pixellated, it looks like it was blown up from a 3 KB JPG with maximum compression. The inside text is so tiny you practically need a magnifying glass to read it (I'm guessing it's about 6 point font). The page layout is bizarrely off-center, with about a 1.5" top margin and an 0.5" bottom margin. And... there are no page numbers. So if you wish to cite a quote from Peale's words of wisdom, you'll have to number the pages yourself, I guess.
Attached are several photos to show you what I mean (with my non-pixellated, non-tiny hand for comparison). I don't know what the publisher was thinking, but they really do not deserve your $7.95. If you're looking for this title, I strongly urge you to find a different edition. Even a tattered used copy would be far better than this. Two thumbs down!

Thank you Mr Peale god bless
I was given a copy of this book years ago by a work colleague some 32 years ago. I had moved away from my home town due to marriage I missed my family terribly especially my MUM who was my best friend. I have siblings and terrific friends but at times things got at me, I was lacking in confidence I was worrying alot my mind wouldn't switch off I was weeping not sleeping going round in circles in my mind. I started reading this book it lifted my spirit I couldn't put the book down it has helped me to cope to live I now dip in and out of it . I don't let things get at me like they would previously done. I have crossed paths with a lot of people through life who are struggling whether dealing emotionally with relationships, work or bereavement and this is the book I buy and gave them because you can comfort people and say all the right things but! you aren't available 24/7 were this book can be. I do believe in God always have done but ! I find the bible hard to read to me this book is easy to read and understand. if you aren't a believer or religious in any way I urge you to buy this book. Good Luck
After reading only a couple of chapters I felt more positive and happy than I have felt for years. It really made me aware of how negative my thought patterns have become and how damaging this can be.
The book provides practical tips and exercises to do throughout the day to maintain your positive thinking and to not let yourself get stressed out. As well as, many stories of how people in real life have used the methods in the book to become more positive and so change their lives for the better.
Regarding the religious references, I either ignored them or, if I liked the underlying sentiment, altered them to read ‘the universe/ universal/higher power’ etc. Instead of Jesus/God. Which worked for me.
Cons:- Quality of the print and the book itself is of substandard, believe me, I live in Hyderabad and there's a certain place where every sort of books are sold at a very cheap price, and I can surely buy this book even now with this sort of quality at very reasonable price then at Amazon. That's the only reason I have given 4star rating.
The book is worth the money. It was delivered in perfect condition-Paperback format.
I looked at the book when i saw a interview with Gerrain Jones with Tom Bilyeu where he talked about how he turned his life around. and this book was the thing that helped him though hell.
And this book realy is life changeing.
My whole life i was a person that dont believe in the 1 thing this book is all about.
But by reading this , be open minded to this concept , it changed my life.
Im confident i can say that this is in the top3 of all the books i have been reading. (out of about 25 books)
MUST READ! if you dont feel you have reached your full potential yet.
However, it changed my life and lead me onto my current path.
