William Walker Atkinson

William Walker Atkinson was a prolific writer, well known for his books on the power of the mind. Though his books were written in the early years of the twentieth century, they are still popular up to this day.

William Walker Atkinson was born in Baltimore, Maryland, on December 5 1862, and passed away on November 22 1932. He was an influential figure in the early days of the New Thought Movement, and for a certain period of time edited a magazine by this name. He was an attorney, a publisher, ab author and an occultist.

In some of his books, William Walker Atkinson used his name as the author, and in others he used pseudonyms, such as Theron Q. Dumont and Yogi Ramacharaka.

I have read his books many times, each time new truths were revealed, which were not perceived in the previous reading.
