The book, As A Man Thinketh, has inspired millions around the world and been a major influence in the self-improvement industry.

The author, James Allen was born in Leicester, England in 1864 and worked as a personal secretary for an executive of a large English corporation until 1902. At the age of 38 he retired to writing and moved with his wife to a small cottage at Ilfracombe, in Devon England. He wrote more than 20 works before passing away suddenly at the age of 48.

As A Man Thinketh, has influenced many contemporary writers including Norman Vincent Peale, Earl Nightingale, Denis Waitley and Tony Robbins, Shad Helmstetter, and others.

As A Man Thinketh was James Allen’s second book and the work which is most popular today.


The work may arguably be said to have started the modern self help genre. It is a classic with timeless wisdom which is a useful today as it was in 1902 when it was first published. The language is filled with instructions and hints on how to master the ship of destiny and plot a course to arrive at that place where we, in our hearts and our thoughts, wish to arrive.

  14. Hi Gene,
    Thank you for taking your valuable time to record these very valuable books. I have read “As A Man Thinketh” many times. I am so grateful that you have made it possible for me to listen to one of my favorite books on my mp3 player. I am so excited that I can listen and learn anytime and anywhere I choose. You have a great site that I will definitely bookmark and come back to time and time again.

    Sincerely yours,

  15. This novel is the book the secret. James Allen knew what he was talking about 100 years ago

  16. Hi Lori,

    I’m glad you like the audio. Like you, I have been a fan of James Allen since I first read his book a few years ago. Every time I read the book it somehow manages to speak to me by bringing new insights to the fore or by reinforcing things I already new but somehow needed a little positive reinforcement. Sometimes as I read the book I become aware of the difference between now and the time I began to choose conscious change.

    Thank you for your contribution!


  17. Hi Matthew,

    Yes, the book “As A Man Thinketh” contains most if not all of the information that was presented in the Secret. I think much knowledge we think is new because we have recently discovered it is really timeless information presented in a slightly different way.

    Thank you for your contribution!

  23. Thank you for posting!!! I love this book and am very thankful that you provided an audio version

  24. I am glad you find the recording useful! Like you I was a fan of the book and wanted an audio and was unable to find one. I decided to make my own and then to share it with others who might want to listen.

    Happy listening,

  25. I recorded the book speaking slowly. I then increased the playing speed of the audio the audio to a normal speaking speed. The resulting audio was 85% of playing time from the unaltered audio. I use this technique to be able to enunciate more clearly at a slower speed of speaking then I make it play at a normal speaking speed.
    I hope you enjoyed the audio.
