Publisher's Summary

This audiobook version of As A Man Thinketh is true to the original. Every word written by James Allen is spoken with clarity and authority by the narrator, making it easy to remember the information and absorb the timeless wisdom.

This short audiobook, originally published in 1902, has had a huge impact in the field of personal development. It is regarded as one of the most important books of the new thought era. It's written in such a way that makes it easy to understand the most powerful message you could ever learn.

The introduction of the audiobook summarizes the idea beautifully:

Mind is the Master-power that moulds and makes,

And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes

The tool of Thought, and, shaping what he wills,

Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills:

He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass:

Environment is but his looking-glass.

    "Clear and beautiful"
    Would you consider the audio edition of As a Man Thinketh to be better than the print version?

    I love the comparison between mind and garden. How we grow has to do with what we choose to cultivate and what we choose to weed out. The message really resonated with me and had a strong immediate effect on my consciousness. We easily forget our own power and this is a good reminder, a small step back to get a clearer view. It's short and it is a pleasure so I'll probably listen to it again.


    What does Brian Holsopple bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think his pacing is just right.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I didn't seat, I went for a walk, that is why I use audiobooks.

    "I listen to this book every week."
    Would you consider the audio edition of As a Man Thinketh to be better than the print version?

    The narration by Brian Holsopple was exceptionally good. It makes it a joy to listen to this audiobook over and over again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is succinct and to the point. It covers the most important aspects of taking control of our own minds, with poetic and evocative language.


    What about Brian Holsopple’s performance did you like?

    Brian Holsopple has an excellent voice for narration and paces the reading of the book perfectly.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book helps me to find resolve and focus when I find my mind wandering to dark and destructive places. It gives me peace of mind.


    Any additional comments?

    If you value being in control of your mind, but sometimes struggle with maintaining that focus, this book will quickly help you get back on track. It's a masterpiece of writing, narrated with excellence.

    Great book. Great narration. If you allow, this book will change you. This audiobook is almost more powerful and meaningful with this narrator.

    "Great timeless book and very good narration"
    What made the experience of listening to As a Man Thinketh the most enjoyable?

    I like the narration. I listened to several excerpts and this is one of the best narrations for this book.


    What other book might you compare As a Man Thinketh to, and why?

    This book is about changing your character and have it reflect in your external circumstances. I find it more practical than some of the other 'law of attraction' books so I'll even compare it to a very practical self-help book like On Form by James E. Loehr and Tony Schwartz.


    What does Brian Holsopple bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I liked the commanding voice of the narrator compared to many other audio books I've listened to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "Principles to live by"

    A good listen.

    Short. Full of principles to live by.
    Have already listened twice, and on second listen got even more.
    I suspect that the more I listen, the more I will hear.
    Highly recommend this book.

    The other book that's 3rd best from the Bible.
    I love the wisdom in this book, so profound.

    I listen to this book everyday to work in my car, got it on repeat everyday, I kid you not.

    This book is life if you follow the principles.

    I really struggled to stay focused while listening to this book. I listened to it four times full of will to learn and listen but my mind kept wandering off. Not really on point. But there are good points in there.

    "Makes you think about what you think"

    I enjoyed this audible as its not too long and it really is to the point , it is direct in its old fashioned narrative which gives it a real old age authentic feel as it was written many many years ago. It's not preachy as some older texts can be yet does really put it in plain yet bygone old English the importance of how our very thoughts do have a lasting power in the creation of our lives .. Really good and as its not too long it is a nice comfortable listen which seems to always deliver the message read after read ... The very premise of the book being how our thoughts control or very lives brings you to a kind of mental pause allowing you to take stock of things which in itself is always a good thing as life is many times on turbo and we don't always pay attention to what we think and often end up with results which we are not always happy with , crap circumstances are often a result of poor habits which are born of improper thinking , which kinda stands to reason why the very act of taking more care in what we allow to dominate our thoughts will greatly dictate what we see turn up in our lives .. Have a listen then stop and have a mental check of what thoughts dominate your life ..🙂
