Book Description

March 15 2007
Offering his patented brand of spiritual advice that relied as much on self-empowerment as inspiration, James Allen-one of the most popular writers in the field at the turn of the 20th century-sets out to show the elements of character and conduct that go towards building a "life of calm strength and superlative victory." In helping the reader achieve "victory over all the dark things of life," Allen has written a self-help book for anyone "eager to learn, and earnest to achieve." This is another inspirational landmark from the bestselling author of As a Man Thinketh. 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.

Product Description

About the Author

James Allen (1864-1912) was a British philosophical writer known for his inspirational books and poetry and as a pioneer of 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. Born in Leicester, England, into a working class family, Allen was the eldest of three brothers. His mother could neither read nor write while his father, William, was a factory knitter. In 1879, following a downturn in the textile trade of central England, Allen's father traveled alone to America to find work and establish a new home for the family. Within two days of arriving his father was pronounced dead at New York City Hospital, believed to be a case of robbery and murder. At age fifteen, with the family now facing economic disaster, Allen was forced to leave school and find work. For much of the 1890s, Allen worked as a private secretary and stationer in several British manufacturing firms. In 1893, Allen moved to London where he met Lily Louisa Oram who he then wed in 1895. In 1898, Allen found an occupation in which he could showcase his spiritual and social interests as a writer for the magazine The Herald of the Golden Age. At this time, Allen entered a creative period where he then published his first book of many books, From Poverty to Power (1901). In 1902, Allen began to publish his own spiritual magazine, The Light of Reason, later retitled The Epoch. In 1903, Allen published his third and most famous book As a Man Thinketh. Loosely based on the biblical proverb, "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. The book's minor audience allowed Allen to quit his secretarial work and pursue his writing and editing career. In 1903, the Allen family retired to the town of Ilfracombe where Allen would spend the rest of his life. Continuing to publish the Epoch, Allen produced more than one book per year until his death in 1912. There he wrote for nine years, producing 19 works. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars James Allen Oct. 20 2009
By Book Reviewer - Published on
James Allen is truly one of the most significant authors on wealth and prosperity, yet so many younger people have never heard of him. His advice is timeless and powerful. Highly recommended.
4.0 out of 5 stars Practical As a Man Thinketh May 23 2014
By mahananda - Published on
I tend to like this book more than As a Man Thinketh.
In this book he goes further in depth, as to how to basically apply self-control to your life.
"As a Man thinketh ' is poetic and inspiring but lacks how to depth of understanding.
"As a man thinketh is Gigantic, but above life's storms is profound and faith building.
"The problems of of life are deeply rooted, but they can be fathomed and rooted out"
"Faith is the Grey Dawn before the full and perfect day of knowldege"
"Cease to dwell pessimistically on all the wrongs around you"
A hidden Gem minus the Fanfare of his other blockbuster book
4.0 out of 5 stars Not his best work but good Feb. 2 2013

Format:Kindle Edition
I love James Allens writing and messages and thought. This is an old book and the language is written back in the day as they say. For me that made it a slow read. Difficult at times. But hidden beneath that struggle is a gem. As always his thought makes sense and is inspiring but you have to work for it in this one. But he does have a way with words and his understanding of life can make anyone better who studies his works. Good but not great.
2.0 out of 5 stars Could be better April 25 2011

Mr. Allen's "As a Man Thinketh" was probably his best piece of work and much better that this new book, "The Life Triuphant".
