The reason why it is still remembered by many people as an important read is because of its positive message.

Increasing Hope for Humanity tells us that while change can sometimes be frightening, we should always keep a hopeful outlook on life. In order to do that, we should take stock of our own situation and analyze the factors that can possibly lead us to success. It also teaches readers to be optimistic regarding the future of the world community as a whole, making them feel encouraged to help one another out. This book teaches readers to be aware of what they want rather than what they do not have, while at the same time teaches them to be contented with what they have.

What makes this book so special is that it tackles serious issues such as the evils of war, racism, poverty, and political corruption. However, Dr. Peale maintains that there is nothing inherently wrong with these things except that people tend to get caught up in thinking that these things are terrible when really they are not. He says that when you stop and think about it, war is not the worst thing that could happen in the world. Instead, he says that it is political establishments, economics, and the abuse of power that pose as the real threats to humanity. Regardless of what side of the fence you’re on, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale’s words of hope and comfort are sure to touch your heart and mind, motivating you to reach your full potential both personally and as a human being.
