Our good friend Mitch Horowitz, author of the most excellent Occult America, has a new book out in around 6 months time: One Simple Idea: How Positive Thinking Reshaped Modern Life. The book charts the history and significant impact of the positive-thinking movement, starting with its origins in the mystical philosophies of certain movements during the mid-nineteenth century, through to its manifestation in the modern day, from Ronald Reagan’s speeches to the bestselling book The Secret.

While the book is still some way off, you can pre-order it from Amazon.com now, and above you can also check out the cool mini-documentary Mitch put together on the history of ‘positive thinking’.
