Let me get this straight from the outset, this was not an easy read, at first. The style it was written in felt awkward and cumbersome. (I usually like reading my books outloud as it tends to have a deeper impact on me as the reader) I actually felt a little intimidated by Holmes' style so I put it aside and actually used it to hold my door open when my house got drafty and blew the doors closed.
A few years later I started going to a Religious Science Church and I, rather innocently, asked the minister if the Science of Mind book was in any way related to Religious Science and he said, "Yes, SOM is the text we use for all of our classwork..."
So I rushed home and began to read it again and somehow during those three years that book changed into something incredibly breathtaking. I was and I am still amazed at the depth it was written. If anyone says that it's just more of the same 'ol mind stuff, tell the person 'thank-you very much' and then walk away. I am a firm believer that if words that point to a Higher Level of awareness don't excite you in some way then you really don't fully understand what you're reading.
Just to realize with 'real eyes' that I am an aspect of the Whole leaves me feeling so incredibly wonderful; that the Infinite loves me enough to create and re-create me anew in each and every moment of creation is humbling and makes me understand on a deeper level what Jesus meant when he said, "I, of myself can do nothing...it is not me, but the Father within that doeth the works...Read more ›
Within 8 weeks of reading (and highlighting) this profound book from cover to cover my entire life did a complete turnaround.
What Ernest Holmes drilled into my mind was EXACTLY how the laws of this universe work with respect to manifestation. The universe is completely neutral! Whatever you focus on and believe is exactly what you WILL receive! Remember this! I feel such deep gratitude for Ernest Holmes for writing this book because of the immeasurable difference it has made in my life.
Highly recommended from my heart,

However, it should be noted that this is really more of a "reader's version". The "Definitive Edition" is a page-for-page correspondence to the 1938 textbook, which is the version most commonly used for SOM courses. I was hoping when this was released that they would keep the page-for-page correspondence for the 1938 section, but it's understandable why they didn't (to conserve space). However, this makes it difficult to use the "Complete Edition" for study courses (i.e. I'm doing the home study course "Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life", and all the textbook page references correspond to the 1938 "Definitive Edition" version). Additionally, the "Concordance to the Science of Mind" by Dr. Al Lowe & Rev. Martha Ann Stewart is the concordance to the 1938 version, again by page number, so that might also create some confusion. This is my only gripe with this printing. Otherwise, I think they did an outstanding job with it.
So if you're just getting this just to read, then I highly recommend it. But if you're getting a copy for SOM study courses, you'll also need a copy of the "Definitive Edition".
