An execellent book written by Swami Sivananda more than 50 years ago.
Gives a rare insight into thought, its process and how to harness.
Swamiji has condensed the ancient Indian upanishads into this beautiful book.

Points to consider:

Learn to unmind the mind. Unlearn everything that has been of no use to you.
organised thinking - take one instance at a time, exhaust it then move on
Mastery over the mind
-non-cooperation with the mind is swimming against the currents. The mind will be thinned

out and gradually become your obedient servant. You will gain mastery over the mind. The

mind must be free from attraction and repulsion. Take on the objects which are only

necessary.
Fend off every single evil thought

Good Book. Gives detailed account of the power of thinking in a simplistic way .This book will not satisfy you, if you read it once, You have to keep this with beside all time and practice it to truly realize the thought power . Swami could have explained the depths of the concept, like he mentions about Yoga Vyasa but it was not explained as much as one would like to know .
But surely this book is for beginners who begin to believe the idea of Thought Power, And each words of Swamiji are gems w

This book is packed with powerful knowledge, in such a small book! It is a book to refer to again and again. If I was relegated to reading only a couple spiritual books the rest of my life, this would be number two (right behind the Bhagavad Gita). Not recommended for the beginner meditator though, I think a lot may go over a beginning yogi / yogini's head.
