I picked up ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’ as a solution for my nagging habit of thinking negatively and expecting the worst. Of course, I’d heard of the title…but I didn’t know much about it. This book was definitely not what I was expecting. The best way that I can describe this book would be to say that it’s one part Napoleon Hill’s ‘Think and Grow Rich’, one part Dale Carnegie’s ‘How to Stop Worrying and Start Living’, one part Andy Andrews’ ‘Traveler’s Gift’ and three parts Holy Bible. Peale packs a ton of great advice on how to improve your health, be more successful, help others and how to ‘think’ more positively. However, it’s not the typical ‘secular’ advice that you receive from most self-help texts. Given my limited lifetime exposure to organized religion, I found it difficult to apply much of the information in this book. However, that should not discourage anyone from reading it. A great book for self-improvement – ev
