A book that helps you to help yourself

"As a man Thinketh" by James Allen. Written in 1903, this book is a literary essay. He says, "this is a book that will help you to help yourself" and it's true. A small book of just 96 pages, is truly a power packed treasure. It is just about human thoughts. How they shape a man. How to attain & retain success. The book has seven chapters in total each dealing with character, circumstances, health, purpose, achievement vision and serenity. Written in a spiritual tone, this book is a valuable source of inspiration ever since it's first publication. The title of the book is inspired by biblical verse from the book of Proverbs 23:7 -"As a man Thinketh in his heart, so is he". My rating 5.0/5.0. 🙏

Law of attraction

From my personal experiences, I can vouch for this book. if you think right, positive, forgiving, productive, giving, etc. this gets manifested and good things come back to you. However, one just needs to keep patience and keep doing the right things.

The story is succinct and to the point. It covers the most important aspects of taking control of our own minds, with poetic and evocative language.

What about Brian Holsopple’s performance did you like?

Brian Holsopple has an excellent voice for narration and paces the reading of the book perfectly.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book helps me to find resolve and focus when I find my mind wandering to dark and destructive places. It gives me peace of mind.

Any additional comments?

If you value being in control of your mind, but sometimes struggle with maintaining that focus, this book will quickly help you get back on track. It's a masterpiece of writing, narrated with excellence.

Clear and beautiful

Would you consider the audio edition of As a Man Thinketh to be better than the print version?

I love the comparison between mind and garden. How we grow has to do with what we choose to cultivate and what we choose to weed out. The message really resonated with me and had a strong immediate effect on my consciousness. We easily forget our own power and this is a good reminder, a small step back to get a clearer view. It's short and it is a pleasure so I'll probably listen to it again.

What does Brian Holsopple bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think his pacing is just right.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but I didn't seat, I went for a walk, that is why I use audiobooks.

A book for thought

Eye-opener, easy read. Even though this book is written so long ago it is still relatable to today’s time. I listen to the book twice because I wanted to grasp what the book had to offer. It gave me better insight about myself. It made me think from within. I highly recommend the book for it’s forward thinking.

Principles to live by

A good listen.

Short. Full of principles to live by.
Have already listened twice, and on second listen got even more.
I suspect that the more I listen, the more I will hear.
Highly recommend this book.

Great timeless book and very good narration

What made the experience of listening to As a Man Thinketh the most enjoyable?

I like the narration. I listened to several excerpts and this is one of the best narrations for this book.

What other book might you compare As a Man Thinketh to, and why?

This book is about changing your character and have it reflect in your external circumstances. I find it more practical than some of the other 'law of attraction' books so I'll even compare it to a very practical self-help book like On Form by James E. Loehr and Tony Schwartz.

What does Brian Holsopple bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I liked the commanding voice of the narrator compared to many other audio books I've listened to.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Why this book isn't part of the education system here I don't know! Such simple logic that everyone should know before the age of ten. the world would only benefit in all ways.

Basic yet fundamental

Given this book was written in 1907, it has survived the test of time with a handful of other personal development books. I'm an atheist and books with a religious lean lose my attention very quickly. This book reflects the attitudes of the time so it has a religious tilt in the language used, however I did not feel that I was listening to a sermon. The basic message is keep your mind good and pure and serenity will follow. It does not define any of these so it can be interpreted using your own moral compass and therefore used by most. The only people who are unlikely to benefit from listening to this book are those with a moral compass that justifies things that you know deep down are wrong.

Classic Simplicity

A brilliant short book with brilliant ideas. Some Perhaps an over emphasis on the impact of personal effort on one's circumstances (there are many factors contributing to people's circumstances that cannot be controlled). Also, the gender biased language made me cringe! Understandable from the time it was written, but definitely outdated reference to 'man', etc. Otherwise wonderful.
