As You Think: Second Edition

In 1904, a relatively unknown Englishman named James Allen wrote a little book called As a Man Thinketh. The book has become one of the world’s greatest self-help books — “self-empowerment” is a better term — for it not only reveals to us that the keys to success are within our own minds, it shows us how to use these keys to unlock the greatest fulfillment we can imagine. In this revised edition, author and publisher Marc Allen updates this classic, changing language that has become dated or obsolete, and honing the clarity of the message. He makes As You Think gender inclusive, showing how these principles are truly universal and apply to everyone, regardless of sex, age, race, beliefs, social class, or education. As You Think is a simple yet powerful reminder that “all we achieve and all that we fail to achieve is the direct result of our own thoughts.” We are the masters of our destinies.

Still reading the book.
Not as easy to read initially. As I read more, I found that every few paragraphs I needed to stop and reflect what was written in order to understand what the author is writing about.
Another book that I would definitely recommend.

About the author (2010)

James Allen was born in Leicester, England in 1864. Because of family difficulties following his father's death, he had to leave school when he was fifteen. He worked for several British manufacturers until 1902, when he decided to write full-time. After he finished his first book, From Poverty to Power, he moved to Ilfracombe, on England's southwest coast, and lived there until his death in 1912. He wrote nineteen books in all. As You Think is his acknowledged masterpiece.
