    It can change your life

    I first learn of this book from an old guy I met at an AA meeting. He told me, 'This book changed my life and if you read it, it will change yours, too.' At the time I thought it was a load of bull, but I knew he'd bug me about it at subsequent meetings if I didn't read it and since it was a quick read I thought, 'What the heck!' What an eye opener! I near would have dreamed such a little book could have such a huge impact on my life. Allen's book hands you the key to unlocking your human potential and truly is a guidebook to right living. The old boy was right, it did change my life and I have seen it change the lives of those I've had the pleasure of sharing it with over the years.

    Century-old book is healing

    This book was written nearly 100 years ago and is as prevalent today as it was then. I read chapters from it daily to my husband who is in the hospital. Then we talk about what I read. It is very emotionally healing.

    'As A Man Thinketh' - An Enduring Classic!

    James Allen is a very famous 'unknown'. This is not an oximoron. Little is known about the man, except he wrote from 1902, and died in 1912, at age 48. This little volume is well known worldwide. This Englishman should be as famous as Shakespeare (but in this different field of 'aid to self-improvement'). He is that good. He is that thorough. He writes clearly. He can help many to recover happiness here on earth. No need to wait for the afterlife. His is a unique legacy that he left behind for everyone. There is a converted version, 'As A Woman Thinketh' (ISBN 0-87516-483-8). I would liked to have known him. He is that amazing. This particular hard cover edition by Barnes & Noble is a handsome edition with a very reasonable list price. The text is priceless. The value is there.

    Simplistic, Poignant, & Savoring

    A close friend of mine recommended 'As a Man Thinketh' to me. Understanding my thought process and how he thinks, I knew this simplistic, yet poignant book, would be a savoring read. Over the past 3 or 4 years I have been on a journey trying to find my 'Personal Legend' and live this so-called utopian life. Living in the confines of Los Angeles I had a very comfortable life. However, I knew if I wanted to escalate to another level mentally, spiritually, educationally, and financially, I had to sacrifice and take a risk. Therefore, I decided to jettison Los Angeles, risk everything and move to New York to grow. Mentally, it was like a kaleidoscope; I was challenged from several different perspectives. The move enhanced my life more than I anticipated. A year later looking back at my decision and my mental journey, I sometimes wonder how I was able to function, operate, and thrive mentally with the cards I was dealt. I believe it is good for the soul and the mind to pigeonhole yourself in situations that you normally wouldn't put yourself in. Therefore mentally you will test yourself and see how you will respond. After reading this book I was able to reflect and assess my mental muscle. The mind is so powerful.

    Powerful Message

    I love this book. Allen tells you that you are what you think. He really goes into detail as to tell you what different types of thoughts will produce. This is a great read. I will encourage anyone to read this.

    dynamite

    James Allen proves that it is possible to pack dozens of valuable nuggets in a small package. The language is often lofty and dated, which in other works detracts from the material. In this case it reads like the writings of a wise old scholar, enhancing the content and its weight. If you enjoy highlighting key points, keep the cap off your highlighter while reading this. More than just an essay on positive thinking, Allen walks the reader through applications for personal growth, putting thought into action, using personal gifts to achieve right purposes, persevering to develop character, sacrificng and putting forth your full effort. Powerful nuggets in a tiny package. Dynamite. Larry Hehn, Author of Get the Prize: Nine Keys for a Life of Victory

    problem using this on Nook

    This book allows you to view a sample before purchase. I have downloaded the sample twice (booting the first load) and the Nook refuses to open the book. Also tried it on a friend's Nook, same response. Would love to read it but it....
    I gave it one star simply because the system won't let me post unless I give a rating.

    How to think

    If you were to live the tenets, ideals and beliefs which Allen espouses, you would find inner peace. Doing is much harder than saying but he gives you the tools to be content in life. Any religion would have to agree with the fundamentals of Allen's doctrine.

    What have you got to lose?

    Light reading that sneaks up on you. If nothing else, this book will make you think about how you think. Humorous, interesting and active, each page logically leads to the next. There is room to argue in many areas, but overall it was well worth the money I paid for it!<BR/><BR/>I am ordering copies to give for gifts.

    Food for Thought

    This reading carefully examines the importance of positive thinking. The suggestion that all of life's experiences evolve from the creation of meaningful beginnings encourages people to focus more on the development of positive thought and less on conforming to negative outcomes. It is a treat for anyone who is looking for a message worth living.

    What a great book - even with the "scan altered" text

    The book and what it has to say about the ability to change one's thoughts to achieve a better life is wonderful. It is concise. Definately a good introduction to the idea, or a good support book for one already on the journey of change.

    As I love old books and typesets of this time, I just wish the entire text had been scanned as a visual, not scanned for the words. It enabled wrong and garbled words, but it didn't slow my reading any, and was humorous at times.

    I downloaded this book into my nook app. and I can't even enlarge the text enough to read it with a magnifying glass. What a waste of money! If it is an e-book one should be able to read it.
