Originally published in 1902, James Allen's classic book about personal development is considered the father of the self-help movement.

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?
The fact that he is reading it and pronouncing words I can't.
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).
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.
Looking for a good alternative now.
You are the sum of what you read!
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.
This is probably the closest version I have found. The is a poem that proceeds even the introduction and there is one tiny mistake where "everyone" should be "environment". The introductory poem sets the tone so you must be aware of it as it is a simple reminder to give a thoughtful reminder of what is learned in this audio.
The pace was good. The voice was most appropriate compared to other versions I sampled.
This book was a life changer for me. It made me consider creating myself a personal motto to inspire me forward everyday. "Make the Future happen." - Steven Philips
This book encourages thought and meditation. One must think introspectively and want to rise above their current situation or want to continue to grow an an eternal path of progression.
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.
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.
The narration was clear and easy to follow.
The book inspired me to continue in my quest for more knowledge about the power of my thoughts.
Nobody, Quality was so bad, audible should never have sold it.
Nothing - couldn't listen to it
I feel like Audible owes me a refund
