Chris Gentry is a successful businessperson, teacher, and author of The Little Book of Prosperity and editor of The Encyclopedia of Wealth. He lives in New England.

“By studying and practicing the principles laid down in this book, one may find prosperity, solve problems, have better health, achieve personal relations—in a word, win the game of life.” —Norman Vincent Peale
The complete and original New Thought classic upgraded for the 21st century with study questions and action items that help you make Shinn’s timeless wisdom change your life!
This edition of one of the most influential self-help books of the last hundred years makes Shinn’s principles relevant to today’s readers. Shinn begins with the following statement: “Most people consider life a battle. It’s not a battle. . . . It’s a game. And like most games, it can’t be played successfully without understanding the rules.”
In a clear and accessible manner, Shinn then sets forth and explores the six key rules for the game of life, providing to readers the user’s manual for making informed decisions and fully embracing a life of success and happiness.
Study questions, meditations, and action items are included in this essential edition of a classic motivational text.
