Through his life when America was a fledgling in mechanization, industrialization, sociological views and general mindset, Robert Collier took what he was handed in life and discovered that he could positively change his life through positive thought.
Left to his own devices at age 11, defying his uncles decree to become a priest, surviving and thriving in the wild days of the West Virginia Coal mines, and building a life in search for the perfect woman he envisioned, serving our country, The Great Depression, success of Suffrage, and entrusting 4 of his six children to the American military for service during World War II, and so much more, Robert held tight to his goals planting them firmly in his mind and through it all, illustrating the power of thought.

On April 5, 2014 a never before written biography will be released to the world so readers can understand the world behind the great writer and teacher of what we now call, Law of Attraction, or what Collier referred to as the "Life Principle". After suffering from a severe bout of ptomaine poisoning, Robert was exposed to Christian Science through his mother-in-law, Mrs. James Madison Bass, and after suffering from this for what seemed an eternity with no medical fix, the discipline of Christian Science cured him.
