    Story
    "A link to our true selves"
    What made the experience of listening to As a Man Thinketh the most enjoyable?

    I've listened to Earl Nightingale who was the first person I know to speak of your inner higher self. Then Mike Dooley and the Universe which again brings in the higher self. This books ties in the Dream Giver by Bruce Wilkinson with the Seven Decisions by Andy Andrews which say, 'We're in revolt against an effect and not the cause stuck in his heart.' This book reminds us that we must move beyond this 'effect' We are reminded that when the bible said what you reap you so means your actions have consequences. Was this book the basis for all these other authors?



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

    The fact that he is reading it and pronouncing words I can't.


    Any additional comments?

    The 6th century Bible referenced reincarnation that was later removed. This story (book) reminds of what we 'sow' in this life we will 'reap' in the next. Not in 'Heaven', here on Earth (Eden).

    "Rushed"
    Where does As a Man Thinketh rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Bottom line one of the clearest most direct books on the power of the human mind. All of the fat is left out. This is the filet. A truly great book.

    However, after having just read the book, I had a great understanding and therefore expectation of how the material should be presented. Slowly and clearly so the truths presented could be absorbed. While his voice was fine, Jeffery Kafer sped through the book and paused at odd points chopping up the flow and meaning.

    In the end, I felt like my museum tour guide had hurried me past the masterpieces I had come to see so he could go have a cigarette.

    I will get another copy from a different presenter. James Allen's truths are far to valuable.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeffrey Kafer?

    Looking for a good alternative now.

    "Yes, you can change your life"

    This is a classic that will never go out of style. This should be required reading in our schools and our homes. It proves the principle that our thoughts guide our life and to change our life, we must change our though patterns.

    Story
    "Difficult Read"
    Would you try another book from James Allen and/or Jeffrey Kafer?

    I didn't realize that this book was written several decades ago. The language made it a difficult read however the contents made it well worth the effort.


    Would you recommend As a Man Thinketh to your friends? Why or why not?

    I probably would not recommend this book to friends/colleagues simply because it is difficult to follow the flow of the book. I feel the need to read it over again in attempt to gain more insight. My first read only produced a few quotes that have remained with me.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jeffrey Kafer?

    The narration was clear and easy to follow.


    Did As a Man Thinketh inspire you to do anything?

    The book inspired me to continue in my quest for more knowledge about the power of my thoughts.
