Summary

The original self-help classic - fully updated for the 21st century! In 1902, James Allen wrote a classic book that was to inspire millions. It was called As a Man Thinketh and became one of the most influential personal improvement books ever written. It provided a series of philosophical considerations on the power of our own thoughts.

The conclusion of the book is that 'we become what we think about' - which later became the inspiration behind the best-selling movie The Secret, and the modern self-help movement. As a Man Thinketh is widely regarded as the book that started it all.

In this special 1-hour audiobook, you get to experience all of the power of James Allen's original work – all fully updated for the present day, with antiquated words and language modernized for easier understanding, yet without removing any of the original meaning. Discover this masterpiece for yourself – and uncover how its deep insights can help change your life, just as they have millions of others across the globe.

Truly Inspirational

A simple early "Law Of Attraction" philosophy! Spoken in modern language, easy to follow and to apply in everyday life. A great reminder to re affirm all that is positive in our lives.

Good listen to for a short time.

I wish it where more but I guess the whole point is to gain quick and ready to use help. And this book does a good job of quickly encouraging you. Good listen to on lunch breaks and such.

Life changing power read!

Potentially the most powerful and influential book you will read in your lifetime. An absolute game changer. The most concise and potent form of the highest level of language and mentality ever put together in book form. I read it almost every month. Everything I have or have experienced in my life that is good has come directly from principles simply outlined in this short book. It has an eternal perspective that few can dictate and even fewer can comprehend. I would recommend every person read this book. It is just that amazing!
