The wisdom of Florence Scovel-Shinn has made such an impact on my life from small everyday things right up. Entering the genre as a confirmed sceptic I then decided to commit to her advice with an open mind and heart, discovering that we really do possess the power within to change our circumstances by our attitudes, words and thoughts. I am now a dedicated student of her writings - the world has changed so much in the last 80 years but Florence's teaching is every bit as applicable today as ever!

Format: Paperback
THE SECRET DOOR TO SUCCESS by FLORENCE SCOVEL-SHINN was written in the 1920s. Given the time and era of its origination it comes as no suprise that THE SECRET DOOR TO SUCCESS by FLORENCE SCOVEL-SHINN has more Secrets to reveal to you, and is very much over-shadowed, under-rated and under-valued by its present-day version 'The Secret' (See All My Reviews).
There are 'No Hidden Agenda's such as author self-glorification and self-made-millionaire - just a kind of purity in the author wanting to share her knowledge and wisdom.

THE SECRET DOOR TO SUCCESS by FLORENCE SCOVEL-SHINN contains many biblical citations, quotes and stories. Each of which is given the spiritual/inner/metaphysical meaning of the point the bible highlighted which, over time, we have misunderstood. There is also a whole chapter devoted to the Fairy Tale Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs which, once you read FLORENCE SCOVEL-SHINN's Inner Meaning Of Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs you will never again view a Fairy Tale/Folk Tale with the same eyes and ears you once had. You will remain constantly Locked into seeking the Inner Meaning of other Tales/Stories/Fables, as you read them to your children/grand children.

THE SECRET DOOR TO SUCCESS by FLORENCE SCOVEL-SHINN is just so apt for today, it's hard to believe, but not suprising that it might be the result of a time and era when the spirit of the sinking of the Titanic was perhaps still shaping history just like it still does today - women had no vote in some countries/counties/places, and they were treated as the property belonging to that of a husband or a father. Women in general were regarded as second class citizens.

Went back to basics with this book. Nothing basic about it though. This book is good to recharge your mindset about asking and receiving. Each chapter is a gem. I will re read this many times.

I know that there have been comments about the biblical aspects, but although not of a set religion, I didn't mind that. It is the Spirit of her words. Her book is written in a simple style which I like, no frills. I have certainly picked some of her affirmations. to make my life more positive, and hopefully others. Florence Scovel-Shinn, was she the originator of positive affirmations? I don't know, but I like her, and wouldn't have thought she'd been dead since 1940. I'm just about to order another.

It's hard to imagine that this book was written so many years ago. This is what Anthony Robbins, Mark Fisher, Jim Rohn and the like must have read from. Amazing insights and I especially like the fact that she explains the Bible stories. Incredibly practival and insightful!

Format: Paperback
I loved The Game Of Life And This Is Another Great and Gripping Read. There are as before the metaphysical concepts and ways in which to acquire anything much like Law of attraction teaching this is about creative thinking and this is something which has greatly helped my success so therefore I can highly recommend it to anyone who is open minded to thought creation and manifestation through right thinking.

Great book,

Greg De Tisi

Nothing much new here, but serves as a useful reminder of certain important principles. A little too biblical for some.

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 27 Dec. 2002
Format: Paperback
Consisting of a series of talks on various topics relating to the achievement of happiness, this book teaches the reader how to triumph over adversity and experience abundance through spiritual law. The author’s clear explanation of Biblical tales and metaphors is especially valuable and insightful and her interpretations are full of common sense and practical wisdom. Her very engaging style and wonderful ability to explain age-old spiritual truth ensure a stimulating and uplifting reading experience. She deals with topics like faith, intuition, inspiration, expectancy and more, and even refers to movies like The Wizard of Oz. The last chapter is about the inner meaning of the fable of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and how it relates to the thought-forms in the subconscious mind of the individual. It’s brilliant! Not only are her words powerful and inspiring, but special affirmations are provided to help achieve successful outcomes. The Secret Door is definitely on a par with her classic work The Game Of Life and I strongly recommend it.
