Let this book show you how the way you think affects your daily life. You'll learn how to be happier, wealthier, and lead a fuller life. Millions of people have found the pathway to wealth and fulfillment with this book. Long before there were the Law of Attraction and The Science of Success, there was As a Man Thinketh. Every man is where he is by the law of his being; the thoughts which he has built into his character have brought him there, and in the arrangement of his life there is no element of chance, but all is the result of a law which cannot err. This is just as true of those who feel "out of harmony" with their surroundings as of those who are contented with them. -James Allen

Born in 1864 in England, James Allen took his first job at fifteen to support his family. Allen worked as a factory knitter and later a private secretary before writing his first book, "From Poverty to Power", in 1901. In 1903 he completed his best-known work: "As a Man Thinketh".
