About the Author
James Allen was born in Leicester, England on November 28, 1864. When he was fifteen, the family business failed and his father left for America to find work. His father was murdered before he could send for the family and subsequently, James left school and worked for several British manufacturers until 1902. His literary career lasted only nine years until his death in 1912.

This is not an '8 steps to prosperity' type book, rather a book that speaks to the essential four pillars, describing the characteristics and belief systems of those who hold to and, those who don't hold to each of the four pillars. It then explores a further four pillars that would significantly enhance the effectiveness of maintaining the essential four pillars.

This book is now on my 'read at least once a year' list and this list is not very long. There are a number of profound realisations I encountered reading this book.
It's obvious the book was scanned in and converted to text. The proof reading is largely non-existant, as there numerous sentences that don't make sense without one doing a bit of mental gymnastics to figure out the original sentence.
I just re-read this book and still managed to gain growth and wisdom from it. This book is a masterpiece, I personally feel that the material in this book is even more powerful than James Allen's famous work As a Man Thinketh. The lessons in this book are deep, penetrating, full of virtue and strength. A very manly book to pass off to your offsprings indeed, I know my son will certainly get a copy.
