This was a pivotal book for me. I finally understood that I can ask for anything, that thanking in advance of receiving is most powerful, and that I don't have to do it all myself; there is a lot of help available for anything. What a wonderful book with so many useful affirmations: "I stir up the gifts of God within me and around me and I am blessed on every hand with happiness, success and true achievement".
I consider this to be a must read if you have any doubt that your creator wants you to be prosperous. Reverend Ponder is a Unity minister. She is the author of many books. This one presents a way of looking at your financial situation including your bills, being grateful and using affirmations to support you in becoming prosperous. The concept of the vision board from the movie "The Secret" is discussed in here and this book came out long before that movie.
I love this book. It changed my life...for the better. It has great affirmations on almost every subject. It taught me to create a vision board that all came to be within 1 year! Everytime I need to turn my negative thoughts around...I turn the pages of this book and find myself back in a positive frame of mind! Great bedside book.

Very rarely have I read a book that started to have a positive, palpable effect--WHILE I was reading it; I usually have to digest it a bit, and maybe review certain parts. I can enthusiastically say that this work was DEFINITELY an exception! It really increased my faith--especially in the way of prosperity thinking. I was raised in a church family that promoted the same, yet my faith had faltered. This clearly-written book, with many real-life examples-started a virtual FIRESTORM in my creative...more

This book was recommended to me a year ago and although I don’t quite know why it took me so long to read it, I’m so glad I finally decided to do so. In hindsight, I should’ve picked it up right away given all the positive and insightful information it truly contains—and also maybe because the one who recommended it is none other than a psychic medium…?! (Haha)

In any case, I found it to be a very uplifting read that rings very true and which brought up concepts that I didn’t know about nor ever...more
Catherine Ponder is known for the Dynamic Laws series.... of healing, love, prayer etc., apart from Prosperity. I could be wrong, but believe that this is the first book in the series. The Secret by Rhonda Byrne has overtly taken many ideas from this book.

It is a book of encouragement and direction, providing motivation and challenging the readers to think positive even in times of distraught. The idea is not new, the recipe is not new, but the book will likely hold its guts through the ages as...more

Years before The Secret by Rhonda Byrne made The Law of Attraction popular, I came across this book while I in a psychiatric ward being treated for a manic episode of bipolar. Although this is a book about financial prosperity, it taught me to shift my focus from not getting sick to staying well. Before I learned this I had four hospital admissions for mania in five years. Now I've stayed well for twelve years. This book is gold and an absolute must-read.

I have read several books on prosperity, and this was not my first introduction to this type of thinking. I have used the law of attraction to bring things into my life before, so I'm a firm believer the universe provides. Although there were tidbits that I liked, overall I found the inserted biblical references and the multitude of examples distracting. Again, maybe it's because this wasn't my first rodeo. I didn't feel like I needed to have examples hammered into my head.
Michael Heath
The book is very good for most anyone interested in the subject of prosperity. The author sites many examples in the Bible that helps convince the reader that prosperity is something that our maker wants us to obtain. The book is a little longer than I believe it needs to be. "The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity" by Edwene Gaines is more concise and to me is presented better. Gaines does give Ponder credit for being a major influence.
Brandon Clay
This book by Catherine Ponder is the best on financial prosperity that I have read. I have read well over 200 books in the success genre (mainly older volumes like this one) and Ponder is the most plain & thorough.

Ponder explains that prosperity is God's will but that it requires beliefs and actions on our part. As with many in this genre of books, there are religious elements throughout. The key for any religion reading these books(I am a Christian) is not to suspend your core beliefs but u...more

Amazing book helping me reframe my beliefs around money and the law of attraction.
An inspirational book yet one that is not such a new concept. First published in 1962 I could see this book being totally revolutionary and one that people who are seeking prosperity would follow. I listened to the audio version and although at times the recording was a bit scratchy and even inaudible, I got the gist of what Ms. Ponder was trying to say. It is a very positive book and that is what I really got from this book, the power of positive thinking. In today's world, it is not such a new...more
I thought this book was just so-so. There are better books about LOA out there. She uses a lot of stories/examples to illustrate and the book is written in short, simple sections.
I have won two big prizes in my state lottery, and I have learned so much more about the Law of Attraction through Catherine Ponder's many books. Way before anyone else was writing about this subject, Ponder was teaching people all over the world to change their lives by changing their thoughts. She truly is a pioneer in the area of prosperous thinking. I love all her books, especially this one, but I wish she would continue to write. The world is a much better place because of her books!

Good affirmations. I use some already and more after this. Positive thinking, law of attraction. I like the goal setting, write out your intention aspect. Felt a little like a late night infomercial sometimes. Seems simplistic about poverty (real poverty) since it doesn't get into the social, cultural, world order realities that exist.

She is popular and I see why. Her writings are seductively direct. It draws from various spiritual traditions, but heavy on the Bible.

Very helpful advice if it's...more

Super powerful! Especially for the ones who had a wrong understanding about religion.
Kiera Haddock
Written in 1962, this author was way ahead of her time. She discusses truths that people were oblivious to back then and are only now starting to discover and recognize as reality. Whenever I need some inspiration I pull out this book and read a chapter or two...or the whole thing. I always feel empowered and excited afterward. This book doesn't only discuss, money as the title may suggest. It covers all aspects of prosperity.
Great book for understanding a lot of how prayer works...what to do when your thinking process if off kilter. For years our ministers preached we must come to God with a humble heart and there is a way to pray...Jesus even gives a guide with what is called "the Lord's Prayer" I like the real life accounts of the author Catherine Ponder and how she turned her life around...Great book One of my Top three

One of my most used books in my personal library. When I first started to read this book 3 years ago I was barely in it and already things were changing for the good in my life. Now I keep it by my nightstand and whenever I need a boost or clarity I just close my eyes, ask for the right thing to read and randomly open the book to the perfect page. This is one of my favorite books.
Tony Bradshaw
The titles in the table of contents told me the entire content of the book as all the writings to those "prompts" were predictable. In a way, that makes a book too predictable, but in other ways there are no surprises and I feel I could have just read the table of contents and been done with the entire book.
This book contains several tips, and mainly affirmations on how to get what you want. If you are a fan of the "Laws of Attraction," you will find more interest in this book, however, I would not put it on the top of your list, there are several "Law of attraction" books I enjoyed better.
Was a really good book that definitely opened my mind to infinite possibilities and routes on my way to prosperity. Whether it be prosperity in love, in business, finances, family, just life in general, there is an answer and a way to live the best life you can using these laws.
This book really changed how I felt about receiving the things I want. She basis everything from scriptures in the bible. I love how she reminds the reader over and over again that God wants us to have all the riches and that we are all worthy of the very best!

Wonderful book, this is the book that started me on my way to real self-improvement and a better life.
I would recommend it to everybody.
Tha hardest part I found was actually locating a bookshop that had it in stock.
Wonderful book. I refer to it from time-to-time whenever I need prayers and affirmations to remind myself that God is the source of all prosperity (whether it be financial, health or spiritual prosperity.)

Brilliant! Lots of Prosperity Affirmations, a perfect compliment to the Laws of Attraction books. One of the best spiritually based books on prosperity I've ever read. Light and easy to comprehend.
Fans of 'The Secret' and the law of attraction will encounter many familiar themes in this book. It was written in the early 1960s, so the language can get arcane, but its still a very valuable text.
One word summary of the book - Optimism. There are plenty of books written with this theme. Ponder uses many Biblical examples to prove the power of positive thinking. I prefer James Allen.
