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.

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.
Unfortunately I can't rate the book itself because the narration is so terrible I couldn't even listen beyond a few minutes.
His reading skills are awful
I think audible should remove this recording
Yes, but not this version. As stated, the narrator is lousy.
Enjoyed those moments that talked about a man's ability to shape himself according to his own visions of perfection.
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.
Choice dictates all.
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.
Apparently the narrators script had no punctuation. It is unbearable to listen to. As a Man Thinketh is a great work try another narrater.
I have now purchased other versions of James Allen's works and by far this version is the worst. Delivered in a bold and offensive tone it is off-putting and totally incongruous with the powerful and lovingly nurturing tone of the writer.
Hey, you have to listen to it. The old standards still apply and you should have these under your belt if you're on the way to self improvement, with the edge of self enlightment. Listen, absorb it and increase you baseline for the better.
