Louise L. Hay, whose writings and talks have brought inspiration, hope, and healing to millions of people around the world, credits The Game of Life (and the entire body of work by Florence Scovel Shinn) for inspiring her at a key turning point in her early career. Shinn was one of the gifted teachers who profoundly shaped the field of personal transformation and spiritual growth. Her writings are known for their clarity, simplicity, and power. In addition to the original text of the book, included within is a new interpretation of this transformational classic, titled The Game of Life for Women. This second part of the book speaks directly to women about how to own their true power. At the same time, however, it speaks to men who wish to not only understand the women around them, but also embrace their own power by tapping in to the universal principles beneath gender differences. Whether male or female, you will likely reach a similar conclusion: It is a book for the ages, to be treasured and studied and taken to heart.
Florence Scovel Shinn carried out her work in the first half of the 20th century. Through her teachings and numerous books, she was a profound influence on Louise Hay and other pioneers of personal transformation. Louise Hay, the author of the international bestseller You Can Heal Your Life, is a metaphysical lecturer and teacher with more than 40 million books sold worldwide.
