Dr John F. Knight is a well-known TV doctor and medical advice columnist under his pseudonym Dr James Wright. He was awarded the Order of Australia (AM) in 1998 and the Knight Ward was dedicated to him at the new Sydney Sanitarium Hospital. His new memoir is Dr James Wright: Adventures of a Merry Medic (New Holland). The Power of Positive ThinkingNorman Vincent Peale

When Reverend Peale visited Sydney for a few days, I managed to learn of this quiet visit and rang his hotel. He kindly invited me to meet him and his lovely wife. The following Monday I had him on my segment on the Mike Walsh Show. His book is one that reinforced the direction of my life and it is still a bestseller. Think and Grow RichNapoleon Hall

I found when at high school that everything is summed up in 10 vital points in the first few chapters of this book. It, too, revolutionised my thinking and I still read it from time to time (as do my two sons, Peter and David, who think exactly the way I do). TNT: The Power Within YouClaude M. Bristol

Another that I have read so often – at least 30 times – it has fallen to pieces and is held together with a rubber band. I can almost recite it by heart. Again, simple points that we are all aware of. But written in readable, practical fashion. The Science of Getting RichWallace D. Wattles

This must have been published about the start of 1900 as the world’s future then lay in steam trains and steam power, Wattles believed. Again, a series of principles. I have continued to re-read this a few times every year. Although far outdated in some physical terms, the principles are still there. One simple principle is “When making money, always give to the other party not 100, but 110 per cent of what you promised. It will ultimately come back to you tenfold.” As proven many, many times during my life and times.
