“The Game of Life & How to Play It” by Florence Scovel Shinn – A Book Review


Reviewed by Richard R. Blake

Personal Success, Entrepreneurship, Postive Attitude

“The Game of Life & How to Play It” by Florence Scovel Shinn is one of the Original Classic Edition, reprint editions of historical artifacts, classic works written in the early 1900s.
Many of the principles from the authors in this series have laid the groundwork for the works of more recent personal success authors, writers, speakers, and life coaches.
Scovel’s insights: into the importance of developing imagination, harnessing the subconscious, experiencing forgiveness, understanding the power of the word, and the law of prosperity are examples of the wealth of material found in her book “The Game of Life & How to Play It.”
Although I can highly recommend this book, I suggest you keep in mind the changes in world view, contemporary American culture, to better enable
the application of these principles personally.
