Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Riki Skutt | 2/20/2014

    " "As a Man Thinketh" was a very interesting philosophical book. I have to say that I don't completely agree with the author at some points, but interesting thoughts are expressed by James Allen. The book explains that our minds are in charge of our realities, and that what we imagine is what we perceive - making it real. This book is great to read if you're in the mood to think deeply about life and our existence, but it doesn't stop there. It goes over how humans accomplish tasks, change as a person, and the importance of dreams/visions of the future. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 2/19/2014

    " This is a small, short read - and highly worth it. I've had a copy since I graduated from high school. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Edwina | 2/18/2014

    " Motivational reading that doesn't give one any room for excuses for not excelling in life. Our thoughts are the foundation on which our lives are built. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben Wood | 2/14/2014

    " Sublime insights into the inner workings of the "inner man". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dorcas Wood | 2/14/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beate | 2/13/2014

    " This book is pretty all right. I think I might need to read it at least one or two more times to fully grasp it. I just did a quick read of it today, and I am pretty sure a lot of it escaped my attention. I might yet change my rating, but for now, I'm staying with 3/5 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 2/13/2014

    " So much knowledge and so much to learn, addressed elegantly too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kassandra | 2/12/2014

    " As I thinketh, so shall I be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacob | 2/10/2014

    " Great read. It's a really short book (only about 63 pages) and provides a nice perspective about the power of thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Renaun | 2/9/2014

    " Great book that helps remind how much your thoughts have power over you for good or bad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carly | 2/6/2014

    " This book changed my life....everyone should read it. It's only 50 pages, so you can read the whole thing in an evening. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandie | 2/5/2014

    " When I need to think positive I re-read this book. I found it inspirational and self motivating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zedic | 2/4/2014

    " Wow... profound. yet Simple. One I will reread often. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marci | 2/3/2014

    " This book is life changing. (I know I say that about a lot of books, but really it is a true classic.) This book is filled with treasures. One of my favorite quotes is "The vision that you glorify in your mind, the ideal that you enthrone in your heart---this you will build your life by, this you will become." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 1/31/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/30/2014

    " This book is very good. Very insightful, not overbearing at all... the author feels very congruent with truth and expresses well what he has come to know through meditation and thought. I just found myself nodding in agreement to many things he said... things I had already known but couldn't put into words. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kamae | 1/28/2014

    " I thought the book was a little repetitive but overall, I liked it. I think we underestimate the power of our minds/thoughts to influence us for good or bad. However, I felt like he didn't account for God and the fact that there are things that happen to us that are out of our control. We have the power to control how we react to these situations in life, but sometimes no matter how positively I think about something or how hard I work to make something happen, if it's not the will of God, it's not going to happen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cory | 1/27/2014

    " Before I read this book, I had never supposed that I could change my circumstances by changing the way that I looked at things. Perhaps an elementary concept, but this is the book that taught it to me. I carry it with me everywhere I go, as it's only a little paper bound 32 page pamphlet, and I read it when I need inspiration. I nearly have it memorized, I think. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justus | 1/27/2014

    " As A Man Thinketh... This book changed my life! A simple, powerfull read full of insite, wisdom and inspiration. A definate classic in my mind! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Loren | 1/27/2014

    " Wisdom literature to end all wisdom literature. Infinitely re-readable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maura | 1/27/2014

    " Short, sweet and to the point. Good insight into being a good person. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 1/27/2014

    " Great things to put into your brain frequently. Short and sweet and a lot of stuff you usually take for granted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Q | 1/26/2014

    " Fantastic - You must read this book if you want to understand how and why things happen in your life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jasmyn | 1/25/2014

    " This is a very short, powerful book about the power of our thoughts in shaping our destinies. He takes the title of his book from Proverbs, "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he" and this book is filled with wisdom and insight. I always go away inspired after reading this book! "

    " a lot of groundbreaking thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimbra | 1/24/2014

    " This is far and away the best book on the law of attraction/law of the harvest that I have come across. It clearly delineates cause and effect and personal responsibility. It focuses on the person you are becoming by your thoughts, not the tangibles you are acquiring. I therefore found it most wholesome, and useful to all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Travis | 1/24/2014

    " I kept seeing this book pop up in various places. After a while when that happens I start to think the book is trying to reach me. So I bought it on my Kindle. Short read, with some terrific insights. I really enjoyed this one and will be re-reading it several times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenni Wilson | 1/23/2014

    " My favorite book. James Allen's mind is a fine one and he gives us nicely rounded sayings, advice, and wisdom. The book can be read in an hour, but will stay with you for a much longer period. It's a book to take with you in life and thumb through just when the feeling has you. A fine book to have on the shelves. "
