While I have read many inspirational books, there is one amongst them that holds a special place for me, being the most motivating of all the books I have read so far. ‘As a Man Thinketh’ is a classic literary essay written in the early 1900’s by James Allen, a British philosopher, writer and a pioneer of the self-help movement in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.
The thing that impressed me most about this book is how the writer perfectly illustrates the dilemmas of modern man and guides the reader towards a healthy, prosperous and fulfilling lifestyle by addressing the issues. ‘As a man thinketh’ underlines the fact that a man is both made or unmade by himself! It is the thought or mindset of a person which eventually determines his/her destiny.
