Florence, in her writing is a very conscious, and enlightened woman who uses metaphor to great effect. This is four books in one volume, and its value way exceeds the price.
Many of her examples are derived from the Bible, and adapted to our personal situations. One such case is blowing down the walls of Jericho. The walls of Jericho represent our fears which need to be dissolved. I feel like she opened up my mind with some of these metaphors, and I nderstood them in a new way.
She is a metaphysical writer, and her wisdom, and sage advice permeates. One piece of advice is not to talk to everyone about your business, and plans. This, I found helpful because I had made the mistake of talking about it to the wrong person. The world is full of wet blanket people who will instil doubt in your goals. Doubt divides the path.
Her writing style is fascinating and never dull, and reminds me a little of Napoleon Hill. I hope you found this review helpful.
One of the many stories in this book is the inner meaning of Snow White, and Ali Baba.
The only caveat in this book is, if you are resistant to the Bible, you may not like this book so much, as it does have a strong spiritual element.
There are also many affirmations used throughout this book. My favorite one is: That which I seek is also seeking me.
I whole heartedly recommend this book.
Florence Scovel Shinn has literally been a beacon of light. The book is written as real as it gets, with a setting of Depression era vocabulary. I savored every page and drank the words fulfilling my souls understanding.
I really have no words, but rather gasps of 'GET IT NOW'.
