Summary

James Allen's classic rephrased in contemporary language.

Widely considered the greatest self-help book of all time, As a Man Thinketh reveals how our thoughts determine our character, circumstances, health, appearance, and achievements. The choice is yours: Either master your mind to create the life you want, or remain mired in frustration and failure.

While James Allen's writing was exceptionally clear for its time, As a Man Thinketh - like any 100-year-old book - uses archaic language that can be difficult to grasp. In this 21st-century edition, best-selling author Sam Torode entirely rephrases Allen's ideas in contemporary English, making his wisdom available to today's listeners.

Great Uplifting Audio

I randomly chose this audio today during my walk and absolutely loved it!! Gave me some life tools I was lacking and needed desperately today with all this madness going on in world. Very inspirational and motivating. Short book/audio but well worth the time. Already forwarded to friends and family. A must read!

This is an excellent update to classic

This small book has always provided me with a roadmap to finding my direction and reaching my destination. This updated version will help a new generation gain accessibility to the important lesson within, by making it more listener-friendly and less distracting because of changes in language usage.

if you haven't got you a copy; do it now. It may just change the way you see your circumstances, this freeing you to change them.

love yourself differently

I love the audio voice of the person that spoke very calming and hypnotizing it makes you take it in a lot more because it's definitely something we need to think about more often as if that's what we think we always working on the outer body but we don't work on the inner body thank you

Positive, simple, and direct

I enjoyed this book and the content really fits what I am working on in life right now. I did the personal exercise at the end and really enjoyed doing so. Keeping my hand firmly on the vision of thought.

If you’re looking for some inspiration and clarity. Give, As A Man Thinketh, a read.

Take care,

Jordan M Myers
