The idea that the key to professional and personal fulfillment is in our hands is a very provocative idea, and self-made millionaire businessman Charles F. Haanel not only believed this, he lived it. Even better, he wrote the instruction manual for how to use the tools that we all have available-our minds and spirits-to open the door to happier, healthier, smarter, more successful selves. By outlining the laws and principles that dictate achievement and personal development, Haanel makes creative power, motivation, and action accessible. Part philosophy, part positive psychology, part business doctrine, The Master Key System is a work that over the last century has inspired and motivated scores of "employees" to make their careers-and lives-a booming success. American author and entrepreneur CHARLES F. HAANEL (1866-1949) was member of the American Scientific League and the American Society of Psychical Research, and author of several books including Mental Chemistry and The New Psychology.

About the author (2007)

Charles Francis Haanel was a noted American New Thought author and a businessman. He is best known for his contributions to the New Thought Movement through his book The Master Key System. Hannel's book The Master Key System, was published in 1912, when he was 46 years old. It is written in the form of a course in New Thought, mental development, financial success, and personal health. The book was heavily promoted in the pages of Elizabeth Towne's New Thought magazine The Nautilus. By 1933 it had sold over 200,000 copies worldwide. Haanel practiced the financial principles he preached and was a self made success who owned several major companies. According to Stevens, writing in 1909, "He was president of the Continental Commercial Company, president of the Sacramento Valley Improvement Company, and president of the Mexico Gold & Silver Mining Company." The original Master Key System contained 24 parts or modules of study. The allegedly "lost" chapters of the Master Key System, chapters 25-28, which are found in some editions, are not original, but have been copied from the chapters 11-14 of A book about You. Among the key points of Haanel's system are what he refers to as the laws of concentration, attraction, and harmonious thinking and action. Unique to the Master Key System is a set of exercises that accompany each chapter, and which are systematically building upon each other - they are what makes the Master Key System a system. In addition to the Master Key System, Haanel wrote several other books including Mental Chemistry, published in 1922, The New Psychology, published in 1924, A Book about You, published in 1927, and The Amazing Secrets of the Yogi, co-authored with Victor Simon Perera and published in 1937. In 1919, Napoleon Hill wrote Haanel a letter thanking him for The Master Key System. In the letter Hill stated, "My present success and the success which has followed my work as President of the Napoleon Hill Institute is due largely to the principles laid down in The Master-Key System." Haanel was quoted in the best-selling self-help book The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, published in 2007.
