Publisher's Summary

Disease and health, like circumstances, are rooted in thought. Sickly thoughts will express themselves through a sickly body. Thoughts of fear have been known to kill a man as speedily as a bullet, and they are continually killing thousands of people just as surely, though less rapidly. The people who live in fear of disease are the people who get it. Anxiety quickly demoralizes the whole body and lays it open to the entrance of disease, while impure thoughts, even if not physically indulged, will sooner shatter the nervous system.

    "Best material, worst reading"

    I was very pleased with the content and super, inspirational message of this short primer on the ability to and importance of shaping one's life through one's thoughts. It is a must read, and I found myself wishing, in this age of ubiquitous "crapertainment", that more people could be exposed to this message.

    To be fair to the reader, "As a Man Thinketh" is written in the style of the 19th century, with phrasing that is odd to the 21st century ear, so it would be a very challenging read for any narrator. Having said that, I have never heard, in approximately two decades of enjoying "books on tape", a more monotonous rendering of any literature than the narrator of this book lazily applies here. There is no change in tone, or rhythm, no pauses or emphasis, nor any such effort to read the material as if to convey the meaning of the text. It took me three hours to listen to this 38 minute reading the first time, because I constantly had to rewind the program to "get" what the author was trying to say because of the amateur reading of the narrator. It was worth the effort, but what a shame that audible doesn't offer a reading of this classic which transcribes it more justly!

    "As A Man Readeth"

    While the information was tremendously enlightening, the reading was just as tremendously dry and rushed.

    To be sure, the book is a small one but 38 minutes to read this book... the narrator barely took a breath between sentences.

    I wanted to hear the book again and decided to purchase the same book with a different narrator so that I can better take in the information that is being read.

    "Compact golden nuggets for taking control of your life"

    It’s rare to find such wisdom condensed in just above thirty minutes of audiobook. Every second sentence makes you think and take notes of essential wisdom to achieve and live a fulfilling life.

    "Very bad narration "

    You’ve got to be kidding! The narrator speaks way too fast at normal speed, and sounds drunk at .75 speed. How hard is it to get narration correct? Story is excellent, but this version with narration is painfully awful.

    "Narrator killed the book"

    The narrator was a poor choice. The story itself is good but would rather have the book now.
