"This is peace,
To conquer the love of self and lust of life,
To tear deep-rooted passion from the heart
To still the inward strife." (p. 154)

What a wonderful, wonderful book. Of the late religious leader Neal Maxwell it was said, "every sentence was a sermon." Allen is similar. The thought-to-word ratio is so dense that it is difficult to catch some of it on a quick read (which was hard because my goal was 20 pages a day). There are some gems in Allen's phrasing: "the silence of the soul," "the si

In a book review Buzz Bradshaw said that 'As a Man Thinketh' by James Allen, “is one of the most fascinating books I have ever read,” and "the influence of that book helped to build our team—the most powerful sales organization you’ve ever witnessed.”

For some who lived a rich life to be 101 years old, I thought this might be a good book to check out, and it was well with the read. "As a Man Thinketh" is actually a short essay, which this book included, but also had related excerpts from other bo

This was a fascinating philosophy. I agree with much of what Mr. Allen says. Some of it was a bit over my head, and a few things I did not agree with. The following quotes appealed to me. "...the most which others can do is to afford an opportunity for our own good or evil to manifest itself; they cannot make us good or evil." " No one is, or can be, arbitrarily shut out from Heaven; each shuts himself out."

A very thought provoking book. I took my time getting through this one. Every page and every paragraph could pack a punch and get me to reflect on my own thought patterns. And I liked this version because more was added to it that relate to the same topic but from other writings of James Allen. It's definitely one I need to read multiple times.

This is a great book to read if you are aspiring to live closer to God. It is uplifting, inspiring, thought-provoking, blunt, and written with beauty and grace in language. I have read it several times and continue to benefit.

An incoherent and aimless book. He needs to direct his thoughts or organize them somehow . . .
