Overview

In his ongoing quest to show the path to inner peace amid a noisy and cluttered world, the author of As a Man Thinketh-one of the most popular writers in the fields of inspiration at the turn of the 20th century-writes simply but eloquently on such topics as The Divine Center, The Unfailing Wisdom, Perfect Freedom, and The Might of Meekness.

As always, his advice is both spiritual and practical: be in the moment, seek simplicity, push past the clutter to find your inner goodness. His words are as valuable today as when they were first written, and provide a welcome balm to uneasy souls in an uncertain world.


British author and pop philosopher JAMES ALLEN (1864-1912) retired from the business world to pursue a life of writing and contemplation. He authored many books about the power of thought including The Way of Peace, The Mastery of Destiny, and Entering the Kingdom.

About the Author

James Allen (28 November 1864 - 24 January 1912) was a British philosophical writer known for his inspirational books and poetry and as a pioneer of the self-help movement. His best known work, As a Man Thinketh, has been mass-produced since its publication in 1903. It has been a source of inspiration to motivational and self-help authors.





In 1903 Allen published his third and most famous book As a Man Thinketh. Loosely based on the Biblical passage of Proverbs 23:7, "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he," the small work eventually became read around the world and brought Allen posthumous fame as one of the pioneering figures of modern inspirational thought.




Allen published his own spiritual magazine, The Light of Reason, later retitled The Epoch.





His wife continued publishing the magazine under the name The Epoch. Lily Allen summarised her husband's literary mission in the preface to one of his posthumously published manuscripts, Foundation Stones to Happiness and Success saying:




"He never wrote theories, or for the sake of writing; but he wrote when he had a message, and it became a message only when he had lived it out in his own life, and knew that it was good. Thus he wrote facts, which he had proven by practice."
