Best Manifestation Books for Beginners

Hello friends!

I get asked this a lot: If I'm new to manifestation, which books should I read first to help me understand the concept? While many people often start with The Secret, by Rhonda Byrne, I believe there are better manifestation books out there. In fact, I have a whole post and podcast episode about that if you want to tune in: My Opinion of The Secret.

So, to answer this question, I've compiled a list of my top 6 book recommendations for people who are new to the concept of manifestation or the Law of Attraction.

And, if you're a podcast listener, check out my podcast: Modern Manifestation for more tips! Now available on every major listening platform.

Let's jump in.

Manifestation Book Recommendations for Beginners

1. A Happy Pocket Full of Money, David Cameron Gikandi

As a book that speaks to our perception of time, value, and money, this book is one of my favorite manifestation books to this day. David Cameron Gikandi is one of manifestation's best kept secrets (though he shouldn't be) and he deserves way more credit for his work. A Happy Pocket Full of Money: Your Quantum Leap into Understanding, Having, and Enjoying of Immense Wealth and Happiness breaks down how we can quantum leap into the kind of wealth and happiness most of us desire, using theoretical physics and a practical step-by-step approach. The author is clear, direct, and encouraging. This is a great manifestation starter!

2. Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill

I don't think any "best manifestation books" list is complete without this title. Think and Grow Rich is one of the original manifestation classics, written in 1937, and inspired by Andrew Carnegie's life works. In fact, this book was written before the term "manifestation" was coined, so it's also a perfect gift for anyone in your life that is resistant to the "woo woo" ideologies that can be found within the Law of Attraction. For this reason, you will also find this book recommended by many sales organizations in business. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is unsure about manifestation and needs a very logical, practical, informative, and convincing book. Consider this a "manifestation light" book that is a great intro into the concept of abundance.

3. The Biology of Belief, Bruce H. Lipton, PhD

If you want to understand the science behind manifestation, from an actual scientist, this book is for you. In The Biology of Belief, Bruce Lipton takes us deep into the innerworkings of our body. With a unique perspective as a biologist with a focus on epigenetics, Lipton discusses how our thoughts control our reality at a cellular level, even more so than our DNA. This book will clearly demonstrate how our thoughts, emotions, and beliefs interfere and influence our cells, and thus the reality that we experience. For anyone looking to link science and manifestation, this is an excellent read!

4. The Science of Getting Rich, Wallace D. Wattles

The Science of Getting Rich is another manifestation classic, originally published in 1910, that stays away from the metaphysics or philosophical questions that manifestation raises. Instead, Wallace D. Wattles remains high level and pragmatic as he provides a manual for making money quickly. Keep in mind, this isn't a book that dives deep into the concepts of abundance. Instead, Wattles wrote this book for those who are not interested in the "what", but more so the "how". To that end, this book is especially designed for those who want to cut to the chase and learn how to manifest quickly without over thinking it. Consider this book as an "abstract on wealth and manifestation".

5. Psycho-Cybernetics, Maxwell Maltz

As a book that dives into various aspects of manifestation, many have referred to this book as the bible of manifestation and personal development. Psycho-Cybernetics is an extremely detailed book that focuses on honing your mindset as a tool for manifestation. I consider this not only a manifestation guide, but a very powerful self-help book that speaks to the creation of a positive-based mindset. I would consider this book a "must read" at any point throughout your manifestation journey, beginner or not.

6. Ask and It Is Given, Esther Hicks, Jerry Hicks

Ask and It is Given is one of the first Law of Attraction books I read when I started my manifestation journey, so it has a special place in my heart. That being said, of all the books I've recommended in this list, this book is the most spiritual and "woo woo", but this does not detract from its effectiveness. While spiritually practical, Esther and Jerry Hicks integrate the concept of manifestation with our connection to Source energy, or what they call "all-that-is". This book focuses on advice that is channeled through a higher being, Abraham, so this recommendation is especially for those of you who are interested in the spiritual side of manifestation.
