James Allen was one of the most popular writers on spirituality at the turn of the 20th century, his many books comforting millions of readers with their unpretentious wisdom about living the joyful life. This little book, first published in 1909, gathers the essence of his insight into a month's worth of twice-daily affirmations and meditations culled from his many inspiring works. From the necessity of sacrifice in aiming for blessedness to the healing power of sympathy, Allen's words still sing sweetly today, a century after they were written. British author and pop philosopher JAMES ALLEN (1864-1912) retired from the business world to pursue a life of writing and contemplation. Best known for As a Man Thinketh, he authored many other books about the power of thought including The Path to Prosperity, The Mastery of Destiny, and Entering the Kingdom.

Standard shipping orders upgraded free to First Class. ~D~ James Allen (1864-1912) was a British philosophical writer known for his inspirational books and poetry and as a pioneer of the self-help movement. His best known work, As a Man Thinketh, has been mass-produced since its publication in 1902. It has been a source of inspiration to motivational and self-help authors. Allen published his first of many books, From Poverty to Power, in 1901. In 1902 Allen began to publish his own spiritual magazine, The Light of Reason, later retitled The Epoch, and wrote his 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. 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.
