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.

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).

Great reminder that we are what we think about most

Recommended to me by Mack Newton, this book is a great reminder that we must first change on the inside in order to change what happens on the outside. I like the short story analogies that James Allen uses to convey a point. Being an older publication, it requires concentration to understand it. From Poverty to Power reminded me to be happy with what I have and love unconditionally. I would recommend these books for people who are striving to be better and find themselves, and also those people who have many desires that are material.
