Publisher's Summary

This book (the result of meditation and experience) is not intended as an exhaustive treatise on the much written upon subject of the power of thought. It is suggestive rather than explanatory, its object being to stimulate men and women to the discovery and perception of the truth that - "They themselves are makers of themselves" - by virtue of the thoughts which they choose and encourage. That mind is the master weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance, and that, as they may have hitherto woven in ignorance and pain, they may now weave in enlightenment and happiness.

    "The Narrator Simply Reads - like a Robot"

    I bought this because As A Man Thinketh is very inspirational. The narrator, however, read this book like a chore, more like a humanized robot to me. Boring. There are other audiobook for the same title. I suggest Earl Nightingale instead.

    "A classic book to keep you head right!"

    I try to listen to this book once per week to keep my head and vision in the right space. A true classic! Should be required reading in all. A must have.

    "Great!"

    Cannot recommend enough. Timeless words that ring as true today as when they were penned. Will listen to this one again and again...

    "What Meat and Potatoes are to a man of hard labor"

    Since this book is short, it can/must be read at least once a week. Thereby can a man keep near him those things which build,protect and nurtures his soul.

    "Avoid this version - terrible narration"
    Would you listen to As a Man Thinketh again? Why?

    Yes, but not this version. As stated, the narrator is lousy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of As a Man Thinketh?

    Enjoyed those moments that talked about a man's ability to shape himself according to his own visions of perfection.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jason McCoy’s performances?

    In two words: hello no. This gentleman is in the wrong line of work. He should consider auto insurance commercial voiceovers if he's determined to do audiowork for pay.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Choice dictates all.


    Any additional comments?

    Regret that this narrator was able to so completely ruin this experience for me. I really must give credit to great narrators: their artistry is easy to take for granted until you hear a lousy one.

    "No punctuation."

    Apparently the narrators script had no punctuation. It is unbearable to listen to. As a Man Thinketh is a great work try another narrater.

    "Excellent"

    Love this content! It's classic and should be gone through many, many times. As a Man Thinketh is required reading at our house.
