Florence Scovel Shinn taught metaphysics in New York for many years. Her meetings were well attended and in that way she was the means of bringing the message to a considerable number of people. Her books have had a wide circulation not only in America but abroad. They seem to have a knack of finding their way to remote and unexpected places in Europe and other parts of the world. Now and again we meet someone who came into Truth through finding a Florence Shinn book in the most improbable location. One secret of her success was that she was always herself . . . colloquial, informal, friendly, and humorous. She never sought to be literary, conventional, or impressive. For this reason she appealed to thousands who would not have taken the spiritual message through the more conservative and dignified forms, or have been willing to read . . . at least in the beginning . . . the standard metaphysical books. She herself was very spiritual, although this was usually hidden behind a matter of fact and carefree treatment of her subject. The technical or academic approach was not for her. She taught by familiar, practical, and everyday examples. She had been by profession an artist and book illustrator before becoming a Truth teacher, and belonged to an old Philadelphia family. She left a collection of notes and memoranda which have been made into the present book. May it have a wide circulation. —Emmet Fox

Louise L. Hay, whose writings and talks have brought inspiration, hope, and healing to millions of people around the world, credits The Game of Life (and the entire body of work by Florence Scovel Shinn) for inspiring her at a key turning point in her early career. Shinn was one of the gifted teachers who profoundly shaped the field of personal transformation and spiritual growth. Her writings are known for their clarity, simplicity, and power. In addition to the original text of the book, included within is a new interpretation of this transformational classic, titled The Game of Life for Women. This second part of the book speaks directly to women about how to own their true power. At the same time, however, it speaks to men who wish to not only understand the women around them, but also embrace their own power by tapping in to the universal principles beneath gender differences. Whether male or female, you will likely reach a similar conclusion: It is a book for the ages, to be treasured and studied and taken to heart.

Living a Life You Love, The Wisdom of Women includes four books from four inspirational women. Florence Scovel Shinn was an American artist and book illustrator who became a New Thought spiritual teacher and metaphysical writer. In New Thought circles, she is best known for her first book, The Game of Life and how to Play it. Her metaphysical works began with The Game of Life and How to Play it in 1925. Your Word is Your Wand, published in 1928 and The Secret Door to Success in 1940 furthered her explanations of the understanding of God and man. Her philosophy centers on the power of positive thought and usually includes instructions for verbal or physical affirmation. Shinn advice often follows the path of "It is safe to say that all sickness and unhappiness come from the violation of the law of love. A new commandment I give unto you, 'Love one another, ' and in the Game of Life, love or good-will takes every trick." Genevieve Behrend's How To Live Life And Love It is a series of lessons in the form of a discussion between a Master and a Student who together explore the nature of reality. Through a series of questions and answers, they show us in a clear, concise way exactly how the circumstances and events of our lives are precisely connected with the thoughts that we think. Full of insightful knowledge and practical techniques, How To Live Life And Love It will guide you gently towards the life you've always wanted to lead. How To Live Life And Love It is author Behrend's follow-up book to her ever-popular Attaining Your Desires and Your Invisible Power. Life Power and How to Use It by author Elizabeth Towne is based on the belief of individuals having their own unique life power which is accessed and directed through their own thoughts. The belief that thoughts are energy which have magnetic properties which is tied into the law of attraction, is a major concept which Towne writes about in great length. This is an excellent book for individuals who are interested the concept of life powers and their relation to the law of attraction. In Both Riches and Honor Annie Rix Militz teaches us to view prosperity in the right way, as the Presence of God. We should not reject or despise it, but see it as the legitimate expression of spiritual life. Militz shows that to be truly prosperous, selfishness must be overcome. Even though selfish people sometimes seem to attain prosperity this path is filled with decay and death. She explains that while that many are satisfied with little this is not necessary nor is it God's will. This living with little is caused by an incorrect interpretation of bible texts and a lie propagated by evil. When we see God as the source of our prosperity and realize that our thoughts and our trust bring us prosperity and are not attached to the material, we are truly prosperous.
