What All the World's A-Seeking

By: Trine. R. W.

Description: This short book by Ralph Waldo Trine stands out in the huge body of New Thought literature for several reasons.

The Science of Getting Rich

By: Wattles, W. D.

Description: This little 'prosperity consciousness' book has been cited by the author of the bestselling The Secret as a primary source.

The Secret of the Universe

By: Wood, Nathan R.

Description: Many New Thought books leave one wanting a bit more. They claim that there is a deeper secret of life, but refrain from explaining it. Nathan R. Woods, who apparently wrote this during the 1920s, finally publishing it in 1932, pulls no punches. He attempts to get to the heart of the issue by addressing the question: what is The Secret of the Universe? It's all here, in a couple of hundred pages. This is where science (justifiably) fears to tread; nothing ca...
