The founder of the Simmons Institute for Human Relations adds to a growing field of self-help books with his findings on how to achieve success and happiness through the use of one's own hidden powers. His philosophy is given in a series of chapters that are tinged with religion, practically short sermons on self-influence and the subconscious, with emphasis on ""awareness"" and the outside ""power"" which control our lives. Many examples of success or failure due to the use or misuse of this ""power"" illustrate the development of his theories and there are tests and questions for the reader to answer and apply. A guide for those in need of greater self-confidence, this should be an aid to timid and inexperienced young people and to frustrated older ones. A work book is included.
