I really enjoyed this pocket-sized book. It was a great introduction to the whole idea of using your inner power and utilizing that through what Mrs Prophet calls "the science of the spoken word". What makes the whole series of pocketbooks by the same publisher so good is the fact that they have real life stories as well as spiritual and esoteric teachings. I have been practicing the power of mantras, affirmations and decrees now for a number of years and have found that it makes a difference in my life. i've become a happier person with more balance, joy and sense of empowerment over my life and the situations in the world that concern us, like child abuse, environmental pollution, poverty etc. This book is a must if you haven't really tested the "science of the spoken word" in your life.
