From the Back Cover
Why do some people always seem so happy about their lives – and others so down even when they seem to have it all? The difference is the strength that comes from thinking positively.
Negative thinking wears us down, leaving us feeling powerless, as though happiness and success are only for other people. It's a bit like a disease – you can have it, you can catch it from someone else and you can even pass it on. But the longer you leave negative thoughts untreated, the worse they will make you feel. Negative thinking is powerful stuff – it can even make you physically ill – and it will certainly make it harder for you to recover if you do become ill.
Fortunately there's one thing more powerful than a negative thought – and that is, of course, a positive one!
Don't delay happiness! John-Roger and Peter McWilliams are the experts experts at helping people to see the lighter, brighter side to life – so read on – and learn the way to positive living.

I will keep this short and sweet, if your in a difficult place in your life or you have a friend who is then do your self a favour and buy this very easy to read ,extremly accurate, god send of a book.
It can be picked up and read at any time, as I have done. I didnt even start from the beginning I just picked a section I was interested in and started to read, and I havent stoped yet. It makes you think instead of being told.
The quotes on each page are truly inspirational and you will refer back to them many times as Im sure you will with the whole book.
If I had the money I would buy a copy for everyone I knew.
Its an amazing book which has quite literally transformed my life and the way I think about things. I would recommend it to anyone, even those who are fit, well and completely happy in their lives. I'm sure that it would be of benefit to anyone who reads it and its cheap!!
This book had very good reviews and to be honest find it hard reading non fiction books unless it is based on my subject matter. I found this book is good to pick up when you have some spare time, have a quick read or jump straight to a particular chapter. I find the quotes at the bottom of the pages uplifting and the personal insight from the authors very helpful.
If you are not one for self help books like myself, I would say give it a try anyway. Trust me, I'm a very stubborn person and never would thought I would purchase a book under this title!

I cannot praise this book enough. It was first published in 1986, and when I read it then, I was impressed, though at that time, I did'nt need it as much as I do now. Read morePublished on 4 May 2011 by terry
