A very motivational book 18 Jun. 2011
By strength builder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very interesting book. It deals with the power of the mind and specifically the power of the subconscious mind which it refers too as the supraconscious mind. This is the creative part of the mind that specifically deals with imagination. Remember that Albert Einstein said," Imagination is more important than knowledge." The book makes the point that the supraconscious is your sending and receiving set to the universe.

The book gives many examples of how this power has expanded and transformed lives. One of the most interesting is how a teenaged boy named Alois P. Swoboda, who was dying of consumption, was befriended by a Pinkerton Detective named Daniel Boone Herring in Omaha, Nebraska in 1899.

After getting the boy a menial job in a saloon Herring didn't see the boy again for 5 years when he ran into him in New York City. At this pioint the boy was well dressed and robust and bore no resemblance to the boy that he had seen 5 years earlier in Omaha, Nebraska.

Swoboda told Herring how when he was working in the saloon that a bum had come in to "mooch" a lemon. As the bum was sucking on the lemon Swoboda realized that the sight of the man sucking on the lemon caused him to drool in his mouth. He then correctly reasoned that thinking can make the organs of the body function perfectly. He went on to work at a ranch in Wyoming and used the power of suggestion and visualization that he had discovered to develop himself into a perfect physical specimen over the next few years. He had learned how to tap into the power of the supraconscious.

Swoboda originated the first mail order physical fitness course which featured his body/mind exercises and titled the course "Conscious Evolution." He exerted a strong influence on the American Intelligentsia of that era. One of his strongest and most enthusiatic backers was Elbert Hubbard, one of the the leading US intellectuals of the era and the founder of the Roycrofters Community of Artisans. Daniel Boone Herring went on to become a very successful motivational writer.

best 'how to' book I ever read 18 Mar. 2011
By Wade Friedrichs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have read dozens of self-help and other instructional books, but never one that was as direct and specific on how the reader could put the ideas to use. I immediately started doing the mental exercises and they have already (one month later) changed my life for the better. And I was a pretty happy and positive person to start with. I would recommend this book to anyone suffering from depression, inadequacy, tension, etc.

Classic in Mind Science!! 3 Jan. 2014
By Eddie Coronado - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a classic book in mind science, and it's very powerful. It's a well-written and very motivational book that reveals the power that each of us has within our minds. I read this book as a teenager, and really enjoyed it. It's one of the first books that exposed me to the creative power of thoughts.
