Ernest Holmes (1887-1960) founded Religous Science, part of the New Thought movement. Schooled in Christian Science, he moved to Los Angeles in 1912. Holmes published his first book, Creative Mind in 1919, and followed it up with The Science of Mind in 1926. Holmes had an immense influence on New Age beliefs, particularly his core philosophy that we create our own reality.

Doesn't Hold a Candle to the Definitive Edition
I have the "Definitive Edition" of the Science of Mind in text form, which apparently is far superior to this "Complete Edition". My guess is that there was some copyright loophole on the "Complete Edition" which made it easier to do these recordings. The structure of the concepts is incredibly more difficult to follow in this "Complete Edition" than in the Definitive Edition. That central point aside, the person who reads in the recording delivers a really distracting and rather headache-inducing performance. I can't say that having contemplative phrases basically shouted at me in a recording induced a greater sense of receptivity.

A more pleasant vocal timbre would have been ideal. That aside, I would have settled for someone who could correctly pronounce "omnipotence" and "circumference". By the second mispronunciation of "circumference" I decided I'd finally had enough. If you want to exploit copyrights to make a book at least hire some who can correctly pronounce the words they're trying to rip off!
I cannot recommend the Definitive Edition highly enough. It is an incredible book. Unfortunately there isn't an audio version available yet, and hopefully if there ever is, it won't be done by the same people.
Not paced well enough yet.
Granted, I only listened to about half of this very long book. At times it was quite I interesting. But, the constant definitions for nearly any thought or action became tedious and distracting.
