Self-help books aim to help the reader with problems, offering them clear and effective guidance on how obstacles can be passed and solutions found, especially with regard to common issues and day-to-day life. Such books take their name from the 1859 best-selling "Self-Help" by Samuel Smiles, and are often also referred to as "self-improvement" books. First published in 1919, this classic self-help book aims to help the reader take control of their life through the realisation of the power of will, with a particular focus on self-healing. Contents include: "The Will in Life", "Dreads", "Habits", "Sympathy", "Self-pity", "Avoidance of Conscious Use of the Will", "What the Will Can Do", "The Will and Air and Exercise", "The Will to Eat", "The Place of the Will in Tuberculosis", "The Will in Pneumonia", "Coughs and Colds", "Neurotic Asthma and the Will", "The Will in Intestinal Function", etc. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in the power of the mind and its ability to heal in particular. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with an essay by Russell H. Conwell.
