After overcoming an illness through what he felt was subliminal means, Robert Collier became fascinated with the power of the mind and how to use it to create success in every area of life. Collier believed that our subconscious mind is like a sleeping giant. Once awoken it can bring us fame, fortune and happiness. He set to work on a series of texts, the first of which was 'The Secret of the Ages', to explore his theory. In this book, first released in 1926, Collier plots a course for his readers to follow in order to achieve their ultimate goals. It proved fantastically popular, selling over 300,000 copies. Much of his insight is still relevant today. Karen McCreadie's interpretation of 'The Secret of the Ages' illustrates the timeless nature of Collier's insights. By bringing them to life through 52 modern case studies, this brilliant interpretation of 'The Secret of the Ages' is an entertaining accompaniment to one of the most famous books on self help ever written.
