The classic self-help guide, full of timeless wisdom

Florence Scovel Shinn’s The Game of Life and How to Play It first appeared in bookstores in 1925 and is now considered a classic in the self-help genre. The author’s insights into achieving meaning, happiness and success are just as relevant and effective today as they were nearly a century ago, hence its reissue as part of the exciting Capstone Classics line.

This collectible, hard-back edition of The Game of Life and How to Play It includes an insightful introduction by series editor and self-help expert Tom Butler-Bowdon. Tom is an authority on classic self-help texts and adroitly connects the content of this book with the concerns of modern readers.

• Enjoy the colourful anecdotes of 1920s New York that have made Scovel Shinn’s book a cult classic
• Discover the original “life hacks” for advancing in every area of your life, from health to wealth to love
• Succeed by attuning yourself with the unchanging principles that govern the universe

With the release of this Capstone Classics edition, we finally have an authoritative, collectible version of The Game of Life and How to Play It. Find out why The Game of Life and How to Play It is one of the defining self-help guides of the 20th century.

Florence Scovel Shinn was born in Camden, New Jersey, in 1871. In her early years she was an artist and book illustrator, however her middle years saw her become a New Thought spiritual lecturer and metaphysical writer. In 1925, Scovel Shinn published The Game of Life and How to Play It, a short self-help title that brought quiet inspiration and reassurance to millions.

Tom Butler-Bowden was working as a political adviser in Australia when, at 25, he read Stephen Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Captivated by it and other books in the personal development field, he left his career to write the bestselling 50 Self-Help Classics, the first guide to the personal development literature and a winner of the Benjamin Franklin Award. Tom has also provided critical introductions to self-development and prosperity classics through the Capstone Classics series published by Wiley.
