(4.7 stars; 1766 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) (0 hr 54 min)

Thought provoking

short simple and on point. The low rating is given due to the audio. it could have been better

(2.5 stars)

The values and principles which, if nurtured and embodied diligently, promise to reward one with success, happiness, abundance and health. It is June 2020. With all that is happening now, the text seems naïve, quaint, simplistic. This is not to say it's antiquated pedantry. If one wants a guide on how to live in integrity, this template is indispensable. If one can

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 is a must for people who are looking for way to answer the nagging question "what can I do to control my destiny" or "how can I take charge of my own life by altering my thoughts " great read and beautifully read by the narrator/reader in this audio file

Book & Reader

(5 stars)

The reader did an exceptional job reading the book. The voice was soothing to the ear and transcribed the book accurately. The book itself was really insightful, and I enjoyed reading it multiple times. Would definitely recommend it and would look forward to my next read by the same author.

Well said

A great overview of common problems the world has "normalized" for convenience or gain over others. Attainment belongs to everyone. The one that tells you that you can't for any reason is a barrier. The one who believes them is fooled & subject to the other.

Don't let this title fool you!! It's an amazing read for anyone: young, old, male or female. The first time I read it, I was 12 and it changed my life. I still go back for another listen, when I'm in need of direction
