The Game of Life and How to Play it by Florence Scovel-Shinn

Product Information

Information: 95 pages, paperback

They say: Many thousands of people owe a great deal to this little book because it has taught them that life is not a battle but a game. The rules for the game are found in the Old and New Testaments. It is a game of giving and receiving. Jesus Christ taught that whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap.' This simply means that whatever a man sends out in word or deeds he will eventually have returned to him. If he gives love he receives love, if he hates he will be hated. We are also taught that the 'imaging' faculty plays a leading part in the game of life. What a man imagines sooner or later externalises in his affairs. This little book will show how everyone can change their conditions and circumstances.

This unusual little book has a catchy title, reminiscent of a number of books on popular psychology published over the years. The title does not do justice to the book, however. The philosophy within is complex and is basically a form of karmic interpretation of the teachings of the Jewish and Christian Scriptures. It is a short work, less than a hundred pages, so the ideas are somewhat compressed. The unusual style of the book suggests that the chapters are based on talks rather than on material originally meant to be read. The book would appeal little to the academic, as there are no references, quotations or bibliography. The style is chatty with plenty of anecdotal examples of the claims made by the writer. The book is, I would suggest, a starter or inspirational spark to studying the ideas in further depth. There is also something a little old-fashioned about the approach together with an unfortunate use of male gender-exclusive language. Nevertheless, despite that, the issues it covers are worth exploring for themselves.
