I marked this book up a lot and liked it even better than As a Man Thinketh. It was much longer, had a lot more volume to it (in terms of thoroughness or completeness, IMO) and really set the mark high for achieving Allen's definition of "prosperity". As I gradually proceeded with each chapter, I found myself in agreement with nearly all the recommendations (and consequences) of the pillars and their moral composition. Furthermore, while I didn't expect that his version of prosperity was specifi ...more

A Wonderful Read

A Wonderful Read

I had to give this book a five star rating because of the quality of its content. The author has poured out a tremendous wealth of spiritual knowledge in this book. The more I read the book I found my self searching for and receiving many answers about life not just in spiritual way, but also in a very General way.
I think it is one of the best self-help books I've read so far.
The Eight Pillars of Prosperity is an excellent book to read. The book gives the reader effective strategies that will change the way of thinking to allow abundance to come into your life. In order to gain prosperity there are laws that need to be studied and applied, and the 8 pillars of prosperity is the answer. I highly recommend this book.
This book really grew on me, the bombastic and often hyperbole fueled writing style made for an engaging reading experience-- obviously influenced by Emerson and not so subtle Buddhist teachings (worded often in Christian themes). Highly enjoyable, it was like a Buddhist Dammha talk with wit and fiery rhetoric.

I've gained a great deal from this book. Prosperity, as Allan sees it, is about being the man I should be.

Allen was 15 when his father, a businessman, was robbed and murdered. He left school to work full-time in several British manufacturing firms to help support the family. He later married Lily L. Allen and became an executive secretary for a large company. At age 38, inspired by the writings of Leo Tolstoy, he retired from employment. Allen — along with his wife and thei

“To have suffered so much in a certain direction that the suffering is finished, and only its particular wisdom remains, enables one, wherever that suffering presents itself, to understand and deal with it by pure sympathy; and when one has been "perfected by suffering" in many directions, he becomes a centre of rest and healing for the sorrowing and broken hearted who are afflicted with the affections which he has experienced and conquered.” 2 likes
