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.

Super Enlightenment

One of the best spiritual books I have ever read. I will definitely listen to it many more times, as I don’t want to miss a single bit of it.
Many of your thoughts in the book were not new to me, but your simple approach and practical techniques to achieve spiritual enlightenment have impressed me and made me look more “consciously” on how I think and behave every moment of my life.
Great work James.
Thank you very much.

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).
