Review: A Guide to Confident Living

User Review  - Lester Usapdin - Goodreads

I can't remember clearly what I've read in this book since I read this in the late 90's. As far as I remember, it's like Readers Digest. I do remember 1 lesson and that is: "At the heart of the tornado/cyclone tearing up the sky and everything on its path is a place of central calm." Read full review

About the author (1948)

Clergyman and author Norman Vincent Peale was born in Bowersville, Ohio, on May 31, 1898. He was ordained into the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1922 and served as a pastor in a variety of churches in the eastern United States for the next decade. In 1932, he joined the Dutch Reformed Church and became the pastor of the Marble Collegiate Church, a post he would hold for more than 50 years. Peale's book, The Power of Positive Thinking, has sold more than fifteen million copies and been translated into 40 languages. It helped create a viable market for self-help books. In addition to writing, he gave sermons on both television and radio and published Guideposts, a very successful weekly newsletter. He died on Christmas Eve, 1993.
