5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - it really did change my life! 16 April 2004
By Sunil
This book was recommended to me by a friend who received it as a Christmas gift. When I bought this book, I was going through a period of being very negative, both at work and at home. I was very cynical and didn't think that my life would change after reading one book ... how wrong I was. Dr Peale really puts life into perspective and makes you realise that there are no magic formulas but everything you need to be a positive person in right there in your head. There are lots of stories which lift you up and make you realise how lucky you are relative to others and they give you the confidence to believe in yourself and the confidence to change your life. He makes it very clear that if you want to change your life, it is up to YOU to change it - if you don't like something in your life the do something about it. He states lots of very simple and abvious things about life that are too easy to forget when you're in a rat race. At the end of each chapter he summarises the main learning points. He does talk about religion a bit, but this is not in any way preaching - he even says that you should take what you want from the comments about religion and ignore what you don't want. My attitude to life really has changed after reading this book (I can't believe I am writing this!) - I will not let my mind be polluted with negative thoughts, I love my job (the same job), I'm laughing and smiling at home and yes, I love life! If you want a more positive and happier life then BUY THIS BOOK!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of three must read books 12 Jun 1999
By A Customer
In 1990, this was just one of three great books that turned my life from a tradgedy to success. Back in 1990, I had a huge business that came crashing down. I was jobless and pennyless. Dr Peale's excellent book and a book that I had read many years before turned my life around. Within weeks, I had found a brand new opportunity and within months my income was at a all time personal high. The other two books? They were "Think and Grow Rich" by Napolean Hill and More Wealth without Risk" by Charles Givens. I obviously highly endorse all three. The priciples work. Please don't make the same mistake I did--read it and pack it away! Read the books, take good notes, apply and reread at once a year. It's very true that what you don't use, you'll lose. I know it happened to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Advice For Turning Dreams Into Reality 16 Oct 1998
By A Customer
A wonderful book....You can open it to any page and get into it very quickly. Dr. Peale tells us all the things we need to do to acheive our heart's fondest desires. Though written more than 25 years ago, the advice and tools he offers are timeless. Start reading and you will be "hooked"! I loved this will too...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book if you take the time to absorb it 2 Jun 2010
This is not the easiest positive thinking book to read but if you take the time to read it slowly and absorb the messages in the book then it is one of the most powerful and effective books you will ever read! The author preaches quite a lot (he is a preacher) and gives too many examples of instant miracles which was quite off putting for me. However, despite that this book had a profound effect on me and has changed my outlook both on the power of being able to do what I think I can and surprisingly also "connection" with God. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a religious book but the guy does make sense. If you read this book and really understand the messages then you will change your view on what you think you can do. Go on, see if you can astound yourself!!

I bought this book after reading The Power of Positive Thinking by the same author which I am a huge fan of. It is not as good and a bit repetative. Buy the original instead!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration 15 May 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What a wonderful man Norman Vincent Peale is. His books really do have a great affect. i first picked up one of his books about a year ago, and was slightly put off by the religious references so put it down. Again, this year I was drawn to it and started to read again - this time was different and I could not put it down. It has changed the way I think about things and I feel that I can do anything. His books are like having your own personal advisor. I've recommended his books to a few of my friends and they all say the same. If you're willing to change and be open to change this book may well turn things around for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars A very Good Read 26 Feb 2011
This book is quite good and is full of many different life experiences of how people, when they put their mind to it, can reach any given goal in life. I found the book very uplifting and especially stimulating in a positive "thinking by doing sense".

Hence, I would recommend it.
