About the Author
About The Author American lawyer William Walker Atkinson (1862 - 1932) was a merchant, author, and pioneer of the New Thought movement. He was also an occultist who wrote an estimated 100 books. He was well-known enough during his era to have been mentioned in "Who's Who" in America, "Religious Leaders of America", and other publications. He was born in Baltimore, Maryland and began his young working life as a grocer. He pursued a career in business and in 1894 he was admitted as an attorney to the Bar of Pennsylvania.He had a physical and mental breakdown, however, and looked for healing. In the late 1880s he found it with New Thought, later attributing the restoration of his health, mental vigor and material prosperity. Chicago had become a major centre for New Thought in the 1890s, and Atkinson decided to move there. He was a promoter of the movement as an editor and author, and published the magazines Suggestion (1900–1901), New Thought (1901–1905) and Advanced Thought (1906–1916). In 1900 Atkinson worked as an associate editor of Suggestion, a New Thought Journal. "Thought-Force in Business and Everyday Life" is believed to be his first book,which started as a series of lessons in personal magnetism, psychic influence, thought-force, concentration, will-power, and practical mental science. In 1901 he assumed editorship of New Thought magazine, a post which he held until 1905 and wrote many articles during his four-year posting. He also founded his own Psychic Club and the so-called "Atkinson School of Mental Science". Atkinson was a past president of the International New Thought Alliance. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

True, the main ideas of the book will remain essentially the same regardless of some typos here and there. However, to an attentive mind, the mistakes may prove to be distracting, preventing some sentences from making sense.
The errors I found on Page 3 occur on line 5 where it says "using the might forces latent.." instead of "using the mighty forces latent.." and the beginning of the 2nd paragraph says "trust that my critics" instead of "I trust that my critics."
I did rate this book, however, based on another book I have by the same author and publisher. It is Practical Psychomancy and Crystal Gazing (1907) and at 93 pages it basically has the same dimensions as this book does.
