About the Author

James Allen (28 November 1864 - 24 January 1912) was a British philosophical writer known for his inspirational books and poetry and as a pioneer of the self-help movement. For much of the 1890s, Allen worked as a private secretary and stationer in several British manufacturing firms. In 1893 Allen moved to London and later to South Wales, earning his living by journalism and reporting. In 1898 Allen found an occupation in which he could showcase his spiritual and social interests as a writer for the magazine The Herald of the Golden Age. At this time, Allen entered a creative period where he then published his first of many books, From Poverty to Power (1901). In 1902 Allen began to publish his own spiritual magazine, The Light of Reason, later retitled The Epoch. In 1903, Allen published his third and most famous book As a Man Thinketh. Loosely based on the Biblical passage of Proverbs 23:7, "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he," The book's minor audience allowed Allen to quit his secretarial work and pursue his writing and editing career. In 1903, the Allen family retired to the town of Ilfracombe where Allen would spend the rest of his life. Continuing to publish The Epoch, Allen produced more than one book per year until his death in 1912.

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent short read
By Digital Panache on 8 September 2018
This is another self help book which would help you read yourself better. I wouldn't say that it's great all across but it's good in parts. The author explains that this is not a comprehensive book but subtle guidance towards realizing your dreams and self reading. This is actually a very old book and seems to be an inspiration from a religious book but well narrated and the concise explanation is good.

Sometime back I had read The Secret and this one reminded me so much of it. "If you want something, the universe wil conspire for you to get it". Both these books focus on our inner strengths and beliefs which is great thing to learn. As you eliminate outside forces, you are truly self dependent or rather independent from others and you chart your own journey.
