“In my opinion, one of the greatest inspirational and motivational books ever written in the United States is The Magic of Believing by Claude M. Bristol.”
Rev. Norman Vincent Peale

The Magic of Believing changed my life. Read it and any problem can be solved, happiness can be achieved, great rewards can be reaped.”
Phyllis Diller

“I began practicing the principles and philosophies in The Magic of Believing and found the secret of a successful formula.  I can truthfully say that since reading this book, I have experienced greater happiness.”
Liberace

About the Author

Claude M. Bristol (1891-1951) worked for nearly forty years as a newspaper reporter and editor. After serving in World War One, Bristol became an advocate for the rights of veterans, whom he believed could better attain success in civilian life by harnessing the powers of the mind.

The application of the principles in this book can change you life. I heard about this book through an online egroup I belong to. I found an egroup dedicated to the study of this book and read about a number of people who had read the book and applied the principles. I have seen these principles work in my own life. Ironically, a six figure education is not likely to have given you the real knowledge of self outlined in this and similar books.
I recommend reading and applying the principles in this book with the short book "It Works" by RJH and "Power of Your Subconscious Mind" by Joseph Murphy. If you are interested in interacting with others who have applied these principles, do a search on yahoo groups using the title of the books and read some success stories.
Try it and see!

This book is all about increasing the chances of getting what you want by believing that you CAN get it. Written in the 1940's, this book is still pretty popular. Interestingly, it's concepts are still being written about in more recent works such as "The Secret".

I don't know how much science there really is to this stuff, but I will tell you that every successful person you talk to has believed, to varying degrees, that they COULD actually get to where they are today. There's just something about believing that it's possible to get what you want that makes things happen- and reading this book will go a long way towards getting your thoughts on the right track. The writing is laid back and the numerous examples make it interesting.

Get the book if you feel like you need a little help in getting what you want out of life. It will get you headed in the right direction, and remember, you can't get what you want until you KNOW what you want. And believing you can get it is the whole point of the book. Other good goal-oriented books I liked include Finding Happiness in a Frustrating World.

Hello. I'm a 37-year-old Korean and live in south Korea. At first I read this Magic of Believing in 1978. It was translated into Korean. I found it by chance on the desk of my father's. At that time the book did not give any impression to me. But I started to read it seriously in Aug, 1984, when I was in the 3rd year student of Seoul National University of Korea, because I began to worry about my future. Before that I believed in Christian religion, but I couldn't find any answer from that religion. On the contrary this book written by Claude M. Bristol seemed to ansewer perfectly to my question about my future job, girl friend, way of life, millitary service, etc. Since then I have read it sincerly again and again as christian read the Bible, and practiced the rules that the author taught to me. Until now I have read that book more than 100 times as long as about 17 years. I have read English version of that book foreworded by Nido Qubein since about 8 years before. Now this book became a part of my thought, my way of life with the author's another book, TNT- the power within you. Now I can't live without this book. I have achieved many things like my job, career, educational achivement, etc. with my own hard work and these books. I really, really recommend you read and reread this book as Bristol says. Now I want to say my hearty wish. I want to know the personal life of Claude M. Bristol, like his history of life, his family, his career that is not appeared in this book. I want to visit his hometown and see his house. I want to have his biography. And I want to discuss with the people who have the same idea as I have. My e-mail is ohgidu@yahoo.co.kr.
Thank you for reading my review even with my poor English.

The Magic of Believing is about you, your mind and the ways we use the mind to create chaos or to create our dreams. I first read this book 30 years ago and it changed my life in every way possible. Of course one has to want to change and if you pick this book to read that is your commitment that you want to live in a world full of wonder, success, beauty, money, joy and unconditional love.

I don't regret buying this book. It is motivational for sure. I was just dissapointed that it didn't give more details or steps on how to attain such powerful thinking. It is filled with LOTS of stories to prove that positive thinking works. It just doesn't tell you very clearly how to do it yourself.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A Positive Attitude is essential for success. Without a positive attitude, you won't put forth an effort. This is like a car. If the car has no gas, it will not go. And if you don't even try, you will not "go" either--that is, you will not achieve anything and are guaranteed to fail! If you have a positive attitude , you will keep trying and trying. Therefore, knowing the importance of a positive attitude is the very first and most important step to success.
Once you know this, however, there isn't much this book can tell you. You already have the key to success. A book telling you what you already know won't do you much good. That's my main complaint about this book. Sure, its overblown in some parts. But the main criticism is that it just told me what I already knew. Maybe if you lack common sense or aren't very well-read, this book will be informative.
