James Allen (1864–1912) retired from the business world to pursue a lifestyle of writing and contemplation. His books are classics in the fields of inspiration and spirituality. Although this is his most popular work, he authored several other books that deal with the power of thought including The Path of Prosperity, Eight Pillars of Prosperity and James Allen’s Book of Meditation for Every Day in the Year.
As A Man Thinketh
Published in 1903, As a Man Thinketh is considered among the world’s greatest self-help books. The book is a powerful reminder that all one achieves or ceases to get is due to his thought process, as thoughts alone are most powerful. Thoughts are the key to unlocking the fulfilments in life that one wants or desires.
The book was also described by Allen as ‘A book that will help you to help yourself’, ‘A pocket companion for thoughtful people’ and ‘A book on the power and right application of thought’.
