    " I have listened to this audio book countless times. If you truly believe in the power of God you must believe in the power of faith. The Power of Positive Thinking is the power of your faith. I love this book and have bought several copies to give to others. I believe in the power of God and I enjoy listening to the audio books so much I keep one in my vehicle at all times. I must have loaned out my last copy and that is why I am writing a review. I am ordering more. Believe!! "

    " I can't believe how many copies of this book were sold; based on anecdotal baloney..."I know a guy who had no brains and no prospects, he just told himself that he could be a millionaire...and he became one!!!" The only reason to read this book is combat people who've read it. "

    " ini buku pertama yang menghentak pola pikir saya yang acuh dan pesimis pada segala hal. membuang saya dari cangkang yang saya yakini erat-erat. "

    " You know how some books are hard to put down? Well this one is hard to hold onto. The urge to hurl it across the room is almost irresistible. In the end, I gave in to the urge. Utter drivel. Avoid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nickole | 2/9/2014

    " Gave it a 4 due to the many "stories" of others. I wish there were more tangible ways to do all the things he suggests. He does give many scriptures to recite, which sounds like a great idea- i will strive to do this, but right now still working on clearing my mind daily. Overall, it has changed me and I will require my kiddos to read this at some point! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally George | 1/27/2014

    " I read this book over 35 years ago, at a stage in my life when I needed to leave home and go out into the world. It did help me then. I decided to re-read it as I am at a different stage in life, will soon be the big 60 and don't want to turn into a grumpy old woman! It is easy to lapse into grumbling and groaning - especially when it is all you hear at work and from the friends who have become negative. Well, I did enjoy the book and it has reminded me that looking at life positively (every cloud has a silver lining) gives you happiness and confidence. Just one sentence in the book makes a difference "every time you have a negative thought, replace it with a positive one". As this book was written in 1952, I am now reading a similar book, with excellent reviews, that was written recently, which should be a good contrast. As I will always want my friends and family to enjoy my company, rather than come and see me out of duty, I aim to grow old gracefully and in a good mood :-) "

    " This is an inspiring book! This book has been updated by "The Secret" which uses the same concepts but takes out God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean | 1/16/2014

    " I think this is a must read book for anyone wanting to improve their life. I am sure Dr. Peale has changed the thinking of many currently successful people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Hansen | 12/11/2013

    " This book was written in the 1950's and I've heard it's pretty much the same thing as The Power of Now. I liked it and found it to be inspiring, but it soon became very repetitive. He could have basically cut it in half. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anita | 11/1/2013

    " I loved this book! I read it two times in a row. Super motivating, and still relevant even though it was written so long ago. Now to apply it all! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pankaj | 10/29/2013

    " A good book with little of everything. Although if you hate religious preaching, this book may sound to you like a sermon. For me a religion is just a set of ideas for specific living and I've started to become indifferent to all religions and all Gods. So I'll recommend it. "

    " As a writer, if I had not read this as a young woman I would be curled up sucking my thumb. A writer's life is hard. These words are so engrained that I must say 'thank you' to my parents for insisting I read it. "
