Originally published to great acclaim in 1985 as "The Book of Fallacy", this is a classic brought up-to-date for a whole new generation.
A pioneering self-help bestseller, this guide has now been revised to reflect breakthrough findings on the force of positive thinking. Dr. Murphy combines ancient spiritual wisdom with cutting-edge scientific research to illuminate the integral connection between thoughts and one's daily quality of living.
