(4.7 stars; 904 reviews)

Allen's books illustrate the use of the power of thought to increase personal capabilities. Although he never achieved great fame or wealth, his works continue to influence people around the world, including the New Thought movement.

Allen's most famous book, As a Man Thinketh, was published in 1902. It is now considered a classic self-help book. Its underlying premise is that noble thoughts make a noble person, while lowly thoughts make a miserable person. (Summary by Wikipedia)

Fiat Lux! This book clearly explains that we are able to affect change in our lives and the area around us by our thought patterns and the laws of attraction. As a man soweth, so shall he reap.

I've heard of this book before, but wad never interested. Classic case of judging a book by its cover. So many amazing and poignant thoughts came to mind, I'm going to have to give it another listen

My favorite book by James Allen.

(5 stars)

This is my very favorite book by Mr Allen. However, I have listened to several and enjoyed them all. The narrator of this book does an excellent job. 5 stars!


(5 stars)

I am not an academic or theologian, however this book reads like the distilled wisdom of all life itself, it's not an attempt to explain causality of truth but rather a reminder that we are all subject to it regardless of individual belief. The reading is clear and concise and perfect for the tone of the book.

As a Man Thinketh

(3 stars)

I found this audio book to be very enlightening in that it reconfirmed the notion that success or failure is primarily one's own doing. I also found the orator to be on the lullaby mode.

Excellent Philosophy

(4 stars)

Very good, very motivational. -1 star due to focous on control and power in some aspects in tangent with motivation. It could inspire one to rise into power for selfish means and that is never a good thing.
