The Game of Life and How to Play It

Read by Amy Conger

(4.7 stars; 1294 reviews)

Florence Scovel Shinn, an illustrator living in New York City, became a teacher of New Thought after a divorce. New Thought was a movement which holds the belief that individuals can create their own reality through intentional thoughts and prayer, much like the current Law of Attraction movement. The Game of Life and How to Play It is her first book, and is remarkable for being written by a woman and meant for a genteel female audience. (Summary from Wikipedia) (2 hr 41 min)

I am 45 years old. And this way of thinking, giving and receiving is what I have lived by since I was 13 years old. my Mother introduced my siblings and me to it. I never forgot. My Fiancee and I are purchasing our home in Puerto Rico in February and by My birthday we will be in our Beautiful Home in Puerto Rico; we see flowers, we have successful businesses and we are going to assist the Community. This is so right.

I liked the examples the author gave about how your believes will manifest. On the other hand, the book was very heavy on Christian concepts as opposed to metaphysical concepts that are generic to every religion. It is very possible that I have missed the connection between the title (life is a game) and the content (infinite intelligence and the power to create). Gamification of life (in my mind) seems more consistent with trial and error and weaponizing addiction to good values. I don't see how someone, who believes that there is infinite intelligence and that he could ubite with it, can view life as a game.

After reading many of Louise Hay's books, and her references to this book, I am so glad LibriVox carries this book for free and has such a wonderful reader. This book further changed my perceptions and is an amazing read to lift one's spirits. It is astounding that even though it was written over more than a hundred years ago, is still timeless and applicable. Ms. Shinn is pioneer of her time.

amazing narrator, amazing audiobook

(5 stars)

Amy is an amazing narrator and this book is absolutely fantastic. Don’t take my word for it, give it a listen. A lot of examples of LOA techniques you can use which work. Be prepared. For it to work you also should drop all inner resistances and let life flow through you.

Changed my life!

This book opened my eyes to a completely new way to view life and the world around me. No matter how often I turn to its wisdom, it never fails to calm me and lift my spirit. A timeless classic and hidden gem.

Beautiful Reading

I have read/listened to many books about the laws of life, and this one is just as great as the others. I loved the narrator's voice and the examples the author gave. A great addition to my collection of knowledge. Two thumbs up!

One of the greats.

I love this book. This is one if not the best books that explains The Law of Attraction. I have read a ton of book about the law. But this is the first I found that includes Jesus Christ and god

(5 stars)

This book has opened up the door to the path of my journey on metaphysics. Amy Conger's voice took this book to another level. I hope she does more Florence Scovell Shinn's books. Amy thank you for narrating this book. Many blessings to you.
