About the Author

James Allen was born in Leicester, England, in 1864. He took his first job at age 15 to support his family, after his father was murdered while looking for work in America. Allen was employed as a factory knitter and a private secretary until the early twentieth century, when he became increasingly known for his motivational writing. His 1903 work As a Man Thinketh earned him worldwide fame as a prophet of inspirational thinking and influenced a who's-who of self-help writers, including Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie, and Norman Vincent Peale. Allen died at age 47 in 1912.

More About the Author

James Allen (1864-1912) was an Englishman who retired from the business world to pursue a lifestyle of writing and contemplation. His books are classics in the fields of inspiration and spirituality. Although best known for As a Man Thinketh, he authored several other books that deal with the power of thought including THE PATH OF PROSPERITY, EIGHT PILLARS OF PROSPERITY and James Allen's BOOK OF MEDITATION FOR EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR.

Allen's books illustrate the use of the power of thought to increase personal capabilities. Although he never achieved great fame or wealth, his works continue to influence people around the world, including the New Thought movement.

This is the book I have always wanted to see published. James Allen was, in my mind, the forerunner of the many modern success teachers that have so profoundly influenced current thinking about personal achievement. I have read a number of Mr. Allen's books, but there were a number of them that I haven't been able to find in any format. This book has them all, including the classic "As A Man Thinketh", and a memoir by Allen's wife!

If you are a fan of "The Secret" and other books of this genre, You can hardly go wrong with this work. I recommend it highly.

James Allen is a classic writer in Self-Help literature and this book is a TREASURE of wisdom. Since I've read "As a Man Thinketh" my life HAS changed for the better as I understood the point being made: my life is a mirror image of my inner self. It's not enough to just wish a better life - I need to strive for it in my heart, in my mind - change and mold my inner world and these changes in me will reflect in my outer world. Balance - without it, one is doomed to suffering. We have to re-align ourselves with our dreams and go for it - life is short, can't wait for things to get better, can't afford the excuses for procrastination we are all guilty of. The point in your life is not merely to know yourself but to make a better you, what you envision as an ideal you. As a society we've been mislead to believe that our salvation is in the hands of some higher authority - it was a creation of a slave mindset, one of dependency and thus of weakness, impotency. But we are not if we take the charge and assume the responsibility for our own selves. We have the beauty and the power within us as well as the ugly and the weak - the only difference is where your faith lies, you become what you choose. Our society is sick because we are sick. It's directly proportional. The poor state of affairs in the world is just a reflection of us en mass, the waste of the vanity we are guilty of. The world is going to change for the better when we ourselves are going to choose to grow into better beings, there's no other way. Choose your destiny. Jump-start your life. Evolve. Change the world.
P.S. I believe, we live in revolutionary times - there's a mass awakening taking place.

Format: Paperback
this is a library of all of James Allen writings, and he wrote a lot! this is a phenomenal spiritual book, every line reads like poetry and its simply amazing that one man wrote all this amazing work. everything in it is spiritually true and profound. that being said, its like a thousand pages, long pages and its simply too much to read! it will honestly take years to read this book, but I like to finish a book within a couple of weeks of starting it! its soooo sooooo good, but simply too much content. I guess I may keep the book to read bits and pieces, but my advice to you is: there so much content that you should not plan to reading it cover to cover and don't expect to finish it soon after receiving it. simply embrace the profound passages you read from it, and read as often as you like. its worth the purchase and you will be satisfied with what you do read from it. but once again, its the whole library of James Allen and how fast have you ever read through a small library?!

Format: Paperback
This compilation of works is a great gift to humanity and should be read by all who seek truth. Although frequently classified as a motivational or prosperity author, his works transcend these limitations by pointing us toward our divine destiny as universal citizens striving toward our intellectual, ethical and spiritual ideal. Rising daily, before dawn, climbing a hill near his home in Ilfracombe, England, to meditate for hours, then returning to his desk to write with the pure aim of assisting in the illumination of the human consciousness and for overcoming our own self-imposed sufferings; he is poetic, profound, poignant and powerful.

Although more than a century has passed since his writings and some of his language reflects the syntax of his time, it is remarkably accessible for the seekers of truth. This large compilation of works is to be kept, studied and referenced often, for the acquisition and refinement of our intrinsic mental powers.

Deep gratitude is expressed to the publisher for this compilation of all his works, purely distilled, including those that have been out of print for some time. If this voluminous collection is too large and intimidating for the newcomer to Mr. Allen's work, please consider beginning with the smaller two book compilation from the same publisher; `As A Man Thinketh' & `From Poverty To Power'.As A Man Thinketh

I do not wish to disparage any work as all must have and serve their purpose. However, as 'The Secret' has referenced the works of Mr. Allen, I would humbly suggest that it is a distortion of the Truth that he has labored to provide to us. I would further suggest that Mr.
