Book Description

July 1, 1982 0875164838 978-0875164830
Dorothy Jean Hulst, a free-lance writer, had as one of her favorite books As A Man Thinketh, by James Allen. In this short volume, Allen expressed his belief that an individual, through the power of positive thought, forms his or her character and consequent happiness. Hulst was inspired by the content of Allen s book but tired of the mental exercise required to substitute feminine equivalents for masculine terms. Using a pencil, she crossed out all masculine references, replacing them with feminine words. The result, As A Woman Thinketh, allows women to identify directly and personally with Allen s concepts.

Calmness of Mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of ling and patient effort in self-control . . . The calm woman, having learned how to govern herself, knows how to adapt herself to others; and they, in turn, reverence here spiritual strength, and feel that they can learn of her and rely upon her . . . The strong, calm woman is always loved and revered. She is like a shade-giving tree in a thirsty land, or a sheltering rock in a storm.

About the Author

The original version of this book - As a Man Thinketh - is the classic James Allen volume that has inspired millions around the world to change their lives for the better. In this marvelous essay, Allen offers the means to gain confidence in yourself, to take charge of the way you think about things, and to reshape yourself to meet and conquer the challenges in your life. This special women’s edition is a wonderful rewrite dedicated to helping women find their inner beauty and light. James Allen was born in Leicester, England, in 1864. After the unexpected death of his father, he left school at age fifteen in order to help support his family. For the next twenty-three years, Allen worked, read, and observed the world around him. At age thirty-eight, he wrote From Poverty to Power, one of the first motivational books ever written. His next book, As a Man Thinketh, established his reputation as an inspirational writer. Although his writing career lasted only ten years, until his death in 1912, Allen produced twenty titles, which continue to motivate and inspire people all over the globe today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Portable Pearls of Wisdom June 13, 2000
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book goes with me nearly everywhere. I'd read it several years ago and it was helpful in getting me to get outside myself, and change my attitude a bit (oh, what a helpless victim of circumstance and other people's actions I'd been!)
Later, I ordered up several copies to hand out. When I was an executive, other women would sometimes come to me with complaints about who did this to them, and why they were helpless to change. Everything I suggested had a 'Yeah, but...<sigh>' attached to it. Before I hit my mid-40's, I was caught in the drama, feeling responsible and depressed by their circumstnaces.
Then I started handing out copies of the book. I'm sure many thought I was nuts, but a couple have actually gotten the message.
I'm not a tough-minded broad, but a bleeding heart liberal who finally realized you can help a fellow working-woman to grow not by solving her problems, but by supporting her as she learns she can do it herself.
The language in the book (really a booklet) is based on "As A Man Thinketh", but altered just slightly for women. It is invigorating to realize that what is true for the gander is true for the goose.
Don't be put off by the style - "Woman is buffetted by circumstances so long as she believes herself to be the creature of outside conditions, but when she realizes that she is a creative power, and that she may command the hidden soil and sees of her being out of which circumstances grow, she then becomes the rightful master of herself."
Oh yes! So, here's the message - what you think and do greatly affects what happens to you. You aren't the victim you think you are, so move on!
"As A Man Thinketh" and "As I Think" are also available.

5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend this book to every person out there. August 18, 1999
By A Customer
This book has added a lot of richness and inspiration to my relationship with God. It is true that if one thinks negatively all the time nothing good will come out of his/her but if one thinks positively everything he/she does will yeild good results: this book makes it perferct and simple to grasp the concept. I will recommend "As a man thinketh" to everyone who is willing to improve upon their thinking process. I also believe that we are what we think. You will not regret spending money on it. I bought one for my husband and I keep mine in my purse for easy access and reference. God bless you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of, "As A Woman Thinketh" March 20, 2007
This is a small, but powerful, little book. Take the contents to heart.

For a woman, there is more appeal in choosing the "female version" of

this booklet. It is inspirational in nature, and the truth of it's subject

is what inspires, and makes it powerful. The fact that the phrasing of

the statements therein, are in an "old-fashioned" style of speech does

not detract from it's valuable message.

This small but powerful books goes to the depth of you. You can put on a happy face to the world, but if the thoughts that run through your mind aren't lined up right and monitored carefully, it doesn't change your circumstances. It's written a bit 'high brow', but inspite of the old English wording, you definitely get the message. A basic for anyone seeking to better themselves inside and out. It's nice that they changed the gender wording so it is more personal for women, although you can get the same jist from the original.

Have to say that someone had a lot of time on their hands to move all the masculines and stick in the feminines, but no problem here. The message is the same for all! Read the book.
