I highly recommend this book. It is considered one of his classic works, setting and excellent basis -- the foundation and principles of the "Infinite Way".
Once you read one of Goldsmith's books, you will find yourself naturally looking at things in life in a different manner, your thoughts, attitudes and responses to life events will begin to change, you will be drawn to read other works by this incredible man. The more of his books that you read, the more the principles he lays out and the essence of the "Christ Consciousness" comes into clearer view and, slowly, more ingrained in your own consciousness. It is no wonder that other reknowned authors of our day, such as Wayne Dyer, refer to Joel Goldsmith's works in their own. This man was evidently a man of great spiritual fortitude, and discipline, insight, wisdom and grace. A Lover of God, a Seeker of the His Kingdom. If these are attributes you are in search off, or in the process of developing in your life -- you'll love this book and it will transport you to another level.
Of an even greater spiritual impact (at least for me) is his: "Man Was Not Born to Cry"!!! (see my review if you are interested).
And for those who may be interested in modern scientific thought(research based)that serves to explain much of what the mystics and spiritual masters have been telling us throughout the ages read: David R. Hawkins: "Power versus Force" - POWERFUL!!! After reading this one you will have to take less "on faith" or "trust", and more "on knowing" -- quite helpful for that part of our brain (left) that tends to inject doubts, or conclude that "Truths" are too lofty, romantic, philosophical and idealistic, but not practical or part of the "real world". See the paradigm shift that has been taking place within modern science. Quite soon the two -- science and spirituality -- may very well end up where they were always intended to be -- in bed with one another, in union and close affiliation, as complements, not adversaries. Enjoy your readings... and journey! God bless!

The Infinite Way is the center of Joel Goldsmith's teachings, so this is the best place to start reading his work. He takes a no nonsense approach to spirituality, writing in clear, modern language that anyone can understand. Those who have a background in metaphysical practices, such as Christian Science, will find much that is familiar, along with new challenges and opportunities for spiritual growth. Those coming from a more traditional religious background may find his uncluttered approach to God refreshing.

Here again is author Joel Goldsmith, trying hard to show us just how easy it is to say "no" to the world and reality and all the sadness and to say "yes" to the one true reality we all struggle with. With a brilliant introduction by John van Druten, the way is paved for anyone who can open their minds to view The Infinite Way. A remarkable book that, if read carefully, may just be the answer you have been looking for

My path led to the writings of Joel Goldsmith two years ago. Since then, I have read everything and anything I can find concerning his lectures and letters. His refreshing insights into Christianity and respect for all the great spiritual traditions have instilled in me a profound trust in ultimate Truth. I keep a copy of The Infinite Way, 50th Anniversary Commemorative Edition, near at hand.

I can't say enough about how much I love this book. It has been for me, a reference book as I read Goldsmith's other books. I suggest reading this book first then moving on to other books by him. This book is one of those books you want to own so you can refer back to it often to remind yourself of THE TRUTH. It has helped me remember many times.
