About the Author
William Walker Atkinson (1862-1932) was a lawyer, businessman, publisher, and prolific author writing under his own name and various pen names. As with many brilliant people trapped in a high pressure world full of demands not in sync with their spiritual nature, Atkinson suffered a mental and physical breakdown, as well as financial disaster. He found renewal in the "Mental Science" movement that took the American religious landscape by storm in the late 1800's. After his adoption of this mode of thinking, Atkinson regained his mental and physical health as well as his material prosperity. The movement that Atkinson credited with his rejuvenation would come to be known as "New Thought", a uniquely American spiritual philosophy that would go on to contribute to 20th century American culture and religion in untold ways. William Walker Atkinson contributed immeasurably to the development of New Thought through his many books and articles and other activities.
