There is no book quite like the Power of Positive Thinking by the late Norman Vincent Peale. This philosophy, that has instructed millions and roused controversy amongst staunch fundamentalists, is genius in it's approach to the power God can supply each of us with. This isn't a get-spriritual-quick program. But a real discipline if employed fervently. Peale takes some incredible scripture verses and makes them cornerstones in this Bible study meets personal wellness seminar. Peale was smart in that he saw that people weren't naturally spiritual, and thus needed practice. The psychology of this is actually centered around Jesus Christ and is not some new age program designed to exalt self above God. Rather, "Power" gets its force from Jesus and not our own abilities. What amazes me is the reluctance of certain Christian teachers in embracing these disciplines as a way to receive Christ and grow as a Christian. Peale does not describe it as a born-again experience, but rather a spiritual awakening of sorts. This language invites everyone, and this was all prior to the born-again designation which the media often uses as a pejorative. However, it's not neccessarily applicable to faith in other gods as one reviewer said. Jesus Christ is the undeniable center of what Peale taught. It was revolutionary, and still is-to think by using the Bible as a tool, we can be positive thinkers, better humans and grow closer to God. The Power of Positive Thinking only affirms what the Bible teaches-and makes it highly accessible for anyone seeking.

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale is the father of the positive thinking book era. This book provides strategies to employ positive thinking. Positive thinking is a tool we can all use to improve our lives. It helps us persist through obstacles and roadblocks, set goals and achieve them. Recently I read Optimal Thinking: How To Be Your Best Self which explained the pros and cons of positive and negative thinking (positive thinking has some shortcomings we need to be aware of), how to make the most of (optimize) emotions and every situation. I recommend both of these books.

Format: Paperback
In the words of the author, this book teaches positive thinking "not as a means to fame, riches or power, overcome defeat and accomplish worthwhile creative values in life."
Where Napoleon Hill's Think & Grow Rich encourages the reader to get in touch with a generic 'Infinite Intelligence', The Power of Positive Thinking is openly and unapologetically Christian. If you aren't open to evangelical Christianity, this book is not for you. If you are open, this book will help set you free.
Based primarily on Biblical affirmation statements, prayer and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, it will help you to choose the right attitude, energize yourself, increase your expectations (and reach them), avoid worry and defeat, and focus on the truly important things in life.
Humble and not at all preachy, Norman Vincent Peale openly shares his own struggles with negative thinking, and tells how others have helped him overcome it. He rightly lets us know that positive thinking does not guarantee our success, but it does bring it much closer to the realm of possibility.
The language is somewhat dated, but the principles are timeless. As Peale says, "The way of life to which this book is a witness is very wonderful. It is not easy. Indeed, it often is hard, but it is full of joy and hope and victory." If you are ready to experience joy, hope and victory, this is the place to start.

After years of reading self-help type books with just OK results, I discovered The Power of Positive Thinking. This is the most powerful self-help book I've ever read - it's turned my life around! I now have confidence, courage, self-love, great self-esteem, and stress and anxiety no longer run my life, and it's really helped my business!
Of course you can't just read this book, you'll need to take notes and do the exercises on a daily basis. It took me 3 months to work through the book and the benefits have grown steadily. Although it's all about tapping into the power of God to help you, you don't have to be Christian to do that - I'm not. But you do need to be able to connect with God, the Great Spirit, Mother Goddess, the Universal God Force, or whoever. In other words, you do need to accept a higher power, so if you want help but are offended by quotes from the bible and talk of connecting with Christ, get over it. The whole point is that we need God and He/She is ready and willing to help and empower us if we simply ask and believe. It's so easy! I can't say enough good about this book - so buy more than 1 copy, you'll want to give it to your favorite negative friends!
P.S. Peale has written lots more books, and from what I've read, they're all great, but so far I'd say The Power of Positive Thinking is the most important.

Format: Paperback
When I first read the first few pages of this book, my instant reaction was that this was bull!. All this talk about "God" and "Christianty", really made me uncomfortable because I am Buddhist and not a Christian. However, after giving this book a thorough read, I have come to the conclusion that the principles in this book could be applied to virtually any religon - and not just Christianity. It has even helped improve the understanding of my own religon, by relating the parables and pharaphrases found in this book!. And even if you're not a religous man - that's okay too!. The principles and the success tips in this book are guarnteed to help improve your life! No matter what it is you're doing!
The reason why I like this success book so much, is because it helps an average man develop a sense of spiritualness if he wants to. Faith, in my opinion, provides greater motivation than all motivational books combined. As Sir John Templeton said: "If we have not developed a reservoir of spiritual wealth, no amount of money is likely to make us happy."
Religous or non-religous. If you really want a great motivational book that has the potential for a permanent life change for the better than I suggest you give this book an honest try.
I hope this was helpful to you.
