The introduction of the audiobook summarizes the idea beautifully:

Mind is the Master-power that moulds and makes,

And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes

The tool of Thought, and, shaping what he wills,

Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills:

He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass:

Environment is but his looking-glass.

Profound and Concise

Don't be fooled by how short this book is and dismiss it thinking a longer book would make for a better investment of time and attention. That was my initial line of reasoning and delayed my purchasing this book for several months, even though it's only a few dollars!

The lesson contained is one of those concepts so obvious it's almost difficult to accept - that your thoughts dictate your experience, your outcome, that what you are inside inexorably manifests externally. And so to strive for external change before executing the necessary internal, mental "cleansing" (I suppose, re-ordering, cleaning up... you get the picture) is futile. The argument is along the lines that a mind must be like a well-tended garden (in terms of your thoughts) if the goal is to yield desirable results. A poorly or lazily managed mind begets commensurate outcomes in reality.

Wisdom for the ages

A combination of age old wisdom and poetry. The language is flowery but the advice is timeless.
