His book has been widely recognized as a business executive's bible for how to succeed.

I should have known better based on the sample, brevity, and price of this product.

Maybe you can appreciate this book when you listen to it...but I cannot. Good luck if you make this purchase.

Imagine that everyone you have ever known or loved was forced against their will into a state of demonic possession and spiritual slavery. Imagine an unholy cabal of the world's richest and most powerful men directing this sinister plan in order to cement their unbridled control of the planet. Imagine two heroes emerging from that darkness to do battle with the forces of evil.

Malik Yoba's narrative of this story captured my imagination to the very end. So many thoughts to contemplate.

I thank Mr. Snipes and Mr. Norman for such an incredible work of art, patience, and transformation.

Really makes a listener like me think about my own character. Thank you and please keep them coming.

The objective reality of this world is solely produced by the human imagination, in which all things exist. I hope to show you how to subjectively appropriate that which already exists in you, and turn it into an objective fact. Your life is nothing more than the out picturing of your imaginal activity, for your imagination fulfills itself in what your life becomes.

In this short treatise, James Allen examines those spiritual qualities that are traditionally associated with the heart: love, compassion, gentleness, good will, and patience. In the words of the author: "He who aspires to the attainment of the Higher Life in its completion - who would perceive with unveiled vision the true order of things and the meaning of life - let him abandon all the wrong conditions of the heart, and persevere unceasingly in the practice of good."

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.
