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.

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.
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.
