``This little volume (the result of meditation and experience) is not intended as an exhaustive treatise on the much-written upon subject of the power of thought. It is suggestive rather than explanatory, its object being to stimulate men and women to the discovery and perception of the truth that - --from The Author, James Allen

One unique and unforseen quality of this book, is the outdated verbiage. Initially, this was kind of annoying and time consuming to comprehend what I'd just read - after all, I'm just as busy as any other young adult trying to build a career. I found that the extra effort required to grasp each concept (i.e. Read. Re-read, rinse/lather/repeat) gave roots to many of the concepts as described. Has been at least a year since I last picked up this book, yet the whole of construct remains.
Definitely recommend for us driven types, as our most prodigious critic tends to be ourselves. A little positive thinking will, more often than not, provide the shift in perspective and attitude you didn't know you needed.
As a coach with advanced degree in sport psychology I feel like the ideas presented could be life changing if you work to increase the value and purity of your thoughts.

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen is one mighty book that has sort of worked for me in coming back on orbits. So I think I am going to be flipping through this book more often whenever I feel my emotions are overshadowing me.
Being excess imaginative is occasionally a plague which really ruins a lot of time. But since I have read this book, it's impression keeps on hitting me when I feel I am getting lost in my thoughts.
So it's a self-help book and I sometimes get drilled with such books because I feel it's more of preaching so I have to put together my mind before reading them that I will grab something and follow it in my life else it's of no use browsing it.
The book tells you a very straightforward yet overlooked truth that how your thoughts will determine what you do or come to be in life. So it's nearly informing you that you need to remove all those impressions which are hindering your growth.
It's a quick but influential book that will certainly put you into thinking about the aspects you need to alter in your life. A constructive book but yes it gets repetitive at so many places. So be tolerant and read with a clear mind and full attention to grasp more and more.
Recommended to all those who too perceive that there is something within them which has been preventing them from expansion.
