The Science of the Mind was originally published in 1926 by the founder of the worldwide Religious Science movement. It was completely revised in 1938 by Ernest Holmes and Maude Allison Latham; this 1997 edition is the 1938 version with an added introduction by Jean Houston and a one-year study program that breaks the weighty tome into digestible bits.
Using creative techniques, Holmes guides the student in easy-to-follow steps toward mastering the powers of the mind to find purpose in life. His explanations of how to pray and meditate, heal oneself spiritually, find self confidence, and express love have helped millions change their lives for the better. The Science of Mind is one of those spiritual classics that belongs on the bookshelf of anyone who wishes a life for themselves free of compulsion and negativity.

This is obviously a very important book but I am struggling with it because the narrator is so dull. I will have to give it another go to finish it, or I may have to buy another version of it.
"Everyone should read this book"
This is the type of book you want to listen over and over again, until you correct your way of thinking, make a habit out of it, so you can create your world the way you want. It’s not a religious book but doesnt dismiss religion, keep an open mind and get to work!
It is our job to think correctly.
"A phenomenal read"
If you are into spiritual practices and literature, this book completely lays the groundwork and thoroughly explains the nature of man, god, and the universe. Would highly recommend to believer and non-believer alike
"An All-time Self-Development Classic!"
I would definitely listen again because I always get more out of Ernest Holmes's writings than anyone else's. I have found Science of Mind to be one of the most helpful, self-empowering and life-changing works!
'What You Think of Me is None of My Business' by Terry Cole-Whittaker because the message and subject matter is somewhat similar even though the writing styles are very different.
He seemed to speak with enthusiasm and confidence in the subject.
No, never! (much too much to absorb with one sitting)
I have been wanting to listen this book for years but couldn't find it at a reasonable price. The complete unabridged version has been available through Science of Mind Publishing company for some years at $100+ on more than 15 discs.
"not the 1938 version"
The Publisher's Summary of this book clearly states:
"this 1997 edition is the 1938 version with an added introduction by Jean Houston."
But this recording is not the 1938 version, it is the 1926 version.
I want my credit back and the above statement removed from the description.
"Lost and Confused"
The info in this books feels random, making it hard to follow. I lost interest many times throughout and even after finishing the book I barely know what it was about!
"Why So Many High Reviews"
I will try his other book, but I will get it free on Librivox since these books are in the public domain.
This book is not suited for Audio. He talks about charts and items on those charts. That book is unintelligible in audio format, I returned it.
I enjoyed listening to the audio book. It is easy to follow. Earnest Holmes wrote a very clear and understanding book anyone can enjoy.
"This was a very informative book . I will read it "
I will read this book again because it has so many levels that I just cannot comprehend all of it in one reading it's going to take a couple readings to digest all of the information and knowledge it has to offer.
I am always coming back to this. there is invaluable knowledge that most of us go without ever knowing the game and mechanics of the mind and spirit. I use the meditation session and now coming to know how to use the law. get it for yourself.
This book literally changed my life. The teachings enable one to become a conscious creator in every-day life. It takes faith and transforms it into a science that is practical and easy to follow. By listening to this book and practicing the science of the mind, we can create whatever it is that we want our lives to be.
