About Florence Scovel Shinn

Florence Scovel Shinn (1871-1940) was born in Camden, New Jersey. Shinn spent many years working as an artist and illustrator of children's literature in New York City before writing her New Thought classic, The Game of Life and How to Play It. Unable to find a publisher, she published the book herself in 1925. Shinn went on to write three more books, all of which are included in this volume: Your Word is Your Wand (1928), The Secret Door to Success (1940), and The Power of the Spoken Word (1944), a posthumous work. Shinn also became widely regarded as an important American spiritual teacher and lecturer. She died in New York City in 1940.show more

Review quote

"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 "One secret of Shinn's success was that she was always herself . . . colloquial, informal, friendly, and humorous. She never sought to be literary, conventional, or impressive. For this reason she appealed to thousands who would not have taken the spiritual message through more conservative and dignified forms, or have been willing to read . . . at least in the beginning . . . the standard metaphysical books." --Emmet Fox "The Game of Life and How to Play It by Florence Scovel Shinn helped my crystallize my own thinking and moved me forward on the path to where I am today." --Louise Hayshow more
