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.

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.
I find that this book can be a short read, and makes for a better reread. I write in mine and find that adding to the text has been invaluable. I keep it with me and read it at times from the beginning and at times from wherever the book opens for me. The book selectively goes about explaining the quote, "they themselves are the creators of themselves" and the role we as play, in the creation of who we are.
