written by Will John

I've read numerous nonfiction books throughout my life, but this one stands out as the most powerful of them all. I can honestly say it changed my life—who's to say it won't change yours too?

Don’t just take my word for it though. Read on for my summary of all 5 books and see for yourself how your next read might just change your life.


by Neville Goddard

Neville teaches us that the secret to changing our world lies within our own consciousness. It’s not about trying to alter others or our external circumstances through force or argument. Instead, it’s about elevating our own state of being. When we change ourselves, the world around us transforms as a reflection of our inner state.

One of the most profound practices Neville shares is the concept of daily revision. At the end of each day, he suggests we mentally replay the events of our day, but with a twist. We revise them to align with our ideal outcomes. This isn’t just wishful thinking—by vividly imagining a better version of our day, we start to embody those changes, and our tomorrows begin to shift.

Neville emphasizes the power of inner conversations. The dialogues we have with ourselves shape our external world. It’s a powerful reminder that our words and thoughts are not just idle chatter; they are the creators of our reality.

by Arrian

“His passion was for glory only, and in that he was insatiable.” Although written over four hundred years after Alexander’s death, Arrian’s “Campaigns of Alexander” is the most reliable account of the man and his achievements we have. Arrian’s own experience as a military commander gave him unique insights into the life of the world’s greatest conqueror.

Arrian details Alexander’s violent suppression of the Theban rebellion, his total defeat of Persia, and his campaigns through Egypt, India, and Babylon—establishing new cities and destroying others in his path. While Alexander emerges from this record as an unparalleled and charismatic leader, Arrian succeeds brilliantly in creating an objective and fully rounded portrait of a man of boundless ambition, who was exposed to the temptations of power and worshipped as a god in his own lifetime.

“Campaigns of Alexander” not only chronicles the vast military achievements of Alexander the Great but also offers a deep and nuanced understanding of his complex character and insatiable drive for glory.

Atkinson offers insights into controlling thoughts and attracting positive outcomes, providing readers with the tools to transform their lives through focused intention and mental discipline.

Originally published in 1906 and now available in a modern edition, “Thought Vibration” continues to inspire readers with its enduring wisdom on the profound impact of our mental processes.
