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!
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.
Thank you for reading my review even with my poor English.
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.
