The Secret of the Ages:

The Legendary Success Formula

Since the dawn of time, humanity has benefited from the power of a single, extraordinary secret—will you use it to remake your life?

In The Secret of the Ages, writer and seeker Robert Collier unlocks the hidden meaning behind humanity’s most enduring myths, parables, and religious texts. As you were created in God’s image, Collier writes, so can you wield the power of creation—through your own mental images.

This special condensed edition of The Secret of the Ages gives you the power to put its insights immediately to work in your life. In an exquisitely brief but powerful forty minutes you learn how to:

  • form mental pictures that lead to your success;
  • use your subconscious to tap unseen forces and energies;
  • dramatically increase your effectiveness by committing to a single, definite purpose;
  • and discover how the universal mind is your guarantee against failure.

Abridged and introduced by PEN Award–winning historian Mitch Horowitz, The Secret of the Ages provides you with an entirely new sense of your potential.

Author Biography

Robert Collier (1885–1950) was born in St. Louis, Missouri. His mother died when he was quite young, and his father traveled widely for Collier’s Magazine, which was founded and published by his uncle, Peter F. Collier. Robert was expected to become a priest, but before taking his vows, he decided against the life of a clergyman and headed off to seek his fortune. Collier became involved in Christian Science and, after conquering a mysterious illness his doctors had seemed powerless to stop he began to hypothesize that the mind might also have power over financial maladies. He put this idea into action, publishing The Secret of the Ages and Riches within Your Reach which has been translated into German, Italian, French, and Spanish, and sold all over the world.
