Publisher's Summary

Explore the wisdom of a New Thought classic and master the game of life!

In the classic best seller The Game of Life and How to Play It, Florence Scovel Shinn helped to define the personal success genre. Written in the new thought tradition, her message is simple yet transformative - we receive back what we put into the world through our actions, energy, and attitudes. Negativity and pessimism are returned in kind, but by switching the script in favor of positive attitudes and affirmations, we are able to manifest success and joy in everything we do.

Life, Shinn tells us, is not a battle of us against the world, but rather a game of giving and receiving. What we give to the world we receive back - whether that be the dark weight of fear and inhibition or the freedom of joy and empowerment.

Cannot finish, the examples are silly

I’m all for the concept of having faith but these stories are ridiculous. Here’s an example: a woman was troubled because the bank gave her an extra $20 by mistake. She thought about why this problem befell her. The story claims it was karmic payback because the woman sent a $20 joke bill to a friend. She repented to the bank because according to the author “God doesn’t understand jokes” and then the bank was so happy that they gave her another $20.

Excellent book! But Audio overlaps & skips in places

The book is PHENOMENAL! I’d recommend it a million times!

However the audiobook needs to be reuploaded. In some places she will be talking mid-sentence and then all of the sudden her own voice will overlap, saying something from a future passage and then it will just continue on in the new spot, having skipped multiple sentences.

This is a reflection of the upload, not the reader’s performance
