James Allen’s From Poverty to Power (1901) and As a Man Thinketh (1902) stand as seminal texts in the self-help genre and have served as sources of inspiration since their publication at the beginning of the twentieth century. Loosely based in its principles around the Biblical proverb, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he,” As a Man Thinketh asserts the powerful idea that belief is central to bringing about positive events in one’s life. From Poverty to Power, Allen’s first book, relies on a similar philosophy but addresses themes of adversity and suffering more directly and offers his simple wisdom as a means of overcoming difficulty. Allen’s writings are powerful and relevant today as they were over a century ago, and this collection brings their solace and inspiration to modern listeners.

    " I liked this book because James Allen put into words many thoughts I have had. The statements are blunt and some based on scientific evidence as opposed to personal experience (which can ring truth as well). If applied, this book has potential to be powerfully useful. It is very short, I read it in between classes in just a couple hours. It is thoughtful, obviously, not your basic story line book. I do think the book lacked in addressing mental illnesses fully. It gives the notion you can think away any problem or illness. While this has some truth, the mental struggle can often be overwhelming. I agree that the mind is very powerful, perhaps much more than we acknowledge. A good book to study. "
