For the advanced student of mental science there is no better book. The author was a major pioneer in the New Thought movement, often called "the Father of New Thought" in England. This philosophy, referred to as mental science by Troward, bridges the gap between the inner world of thoughts and the physical universe. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the power of the mind and New Thought ideas.The late professor William James of Harvard said, "Far and away the ablest statement of that philosophy that I have met, beautiful in its sustained clearness of thought and style - a real classic statement." Chapters include Spirit and Matter, The Higher Mode of Intelligence Controls the Lower, The Unity of the Spirit, Intuition, Healing, In Touch with the Sub-Conscious Mind, The Body, The Soul, The Spirit, and more. If one knows how to harness the power of the mind then much more can be accomplished that might not otherwise be possible. This book can help in that regard.
