It is written in the form of a course in New Thought, mental development, financial success, and personal health. The book was heavily promoted in the pages of Elizabeth Towne's New Thought magazine The Nautilus. By 1933 it had sold over 200,000 copies worldwide. Haanel practiced the financial principles he preached and was a self made success who owned several major companies. According to Stevens, writing in 1909, "He was president of the Continental Commercial Company, president of the Sacramento Valley Improvement Company, and president of the Mexico Gold & Silver Mining Company." The original Master Key System contained 24 parts or modules of study. The allegedly "lost" chapters of the Master Key System, chapters 25-28, which are found in some editions, are not original, but have been copied from the chapters 11-14 of A book about You. Among the key points of Haanel's system are what he refers to as the laws of concentration, attraction, and harmonious thinking and action. Unique to the Master Key System is a set of exercises that accompany each chapter, and which are systematically building upon each other - they are what makes the Master Key System a system. In addition to the Master Key System, Haanel wrote several other books including Mental Chemistry published in 1922, The New Psychology published in 1924, A Book about You published in 1927, and The Amazing Secrets of the Yogi published in 1937 (which was co-authored with Victor Simon Perera). The Master Key System discusses the creative power of thought, the deep connection between the world within or the mind and the Universal Mind. By understanding how it works, we can effectively reach our goals, become prosperous and remain in control of our lives. The master key is our own mind power, both the conscious and the subconscious minds and their connection with the Universal Mind which is described generally as God or the power of God. What we desire, think and feel within ourselves is reflected in the world without. When we realize this great secret, this immense power which we all possess, this master key, we become masters of our own lives and unlock the immense powers and potentials residing in our minds and bodies. In the process we also learn to act responsibly, with awareness and right attitude. (Source: Wikipedia).
