Ballantine, Dec 1, 1985 - Psychology - 308 pages
Dr. Peale's seminal work THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING changed forever and for better the way Americans thought about themselves and their lives. Now Peale describes his own fascinating life -- his days as an Ohio country boy, his early entrepreneurial experiences (he was once an aluminum salesman!), his hard times as a preacher in a Depression-era New York City church, and his triumph as a nationwide celebrity -- in his brilliant autobiography. With faith in God and love of people as his map, Peale charts an amazing course of more than sixty years, filled with anecdotes and inspiration that will help all who read it to embrace THE TRUE JOY OF POSITIVE LIVING.
