As a Man Thinketh and From Poverty to Power | [James Allen]

As a Man Thinketh and From Poverty to Power

James Allen's From Poverty to Power (1901) and As a Man Thinketh (1902) stand as seminal texts in the self-help genre that have served as sources of inspiration since their publication at the beginning of the 20th century. Loosely based in its principles around the Biblical proverb "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he," As a Man Thinketh asserts the powerful idea that belief is central to bringing about positive events in one's life.

Publisher's Summary

James Allen's From Poverty to Power (1901) and As a Man Thinketh (1902) stand as seminal texts in the self-help genre that have served as sources of inspiration since their publication at the beginning of the 20th century. Loosely based in its principles around the Biblical proverb "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he," As a Man Thinketh asserts the powerful idea that belief is central to bringing about positive events in one's life. From Poverty to Power, Allen's first book, relies on a similar philosophy but addresses themes of adversity and suffering more directly and offers his simple wisdom as a means of overcoming difficulty. Allen's writings are powerful and relevant today as they were over a century ago, and this collection brings their solace and inspiration to modern listeners.

    "great book bad performance"
    If you could sum up As a Man Thinketh and From Poverty to Power in three words, what would they be?

    The narrator seemed to be racing to finish reading this great book. Unlistenable.

    Uplifting

    "The power of our thoughts"

    Our thoughts are expressed as words. Words really are containers for power. What we think and say guides our life. This book is a wonderful example of how to change our life by changing our thoughts.

    Story
    "Old school wording though relevant concepts"

    Obviously a brilliant and enlightened mind, especially for the time it was written. A bit heavy going at times with the old school wording and terminology, though the message is relevant today as much as ever.
    Note: This is two books recorded back to back. I prefered the first (As a Man Thinketh).
