A self-help classic since 1925, The Game of Life and How to Play It uses real-life stories and practical wisdom to guide readers to prosperity through a positive attitude.

The Game of Life and How to Play It is now reset and grouped together with three other short books by Florence Scovel Shinn for an all-in-one, definitive volume. Affordably priced, beautifully packaged, and all-inclusive, this is the Shinn collection that readers will treasure.


“By studying and practicing the principles laid down in this book, one may find prosperity, solve problems, have better health, achieve personal relations—in a word, win the game of life.”
—Norman Vincent Peale

“One secret of Shinn’s success was that she was always herself . . . colloquial, informal, friendly, and humorous. She never sought to be literary, conventional, or impressive. For this reason she appealed to thousands who would not have taken the spiritual message through more conservative and dignified forms, or have been willing to read . . . at least in the beginning . . . the standard metaphysical books.”
—Emmet Fox
The Game of Life and How to Play It by Florence Scovel Shinn helped my crystallize my own thinking and moved me forward on the path to where I am today.”
—Louise Hay
