The introduction of the audiobook summarizes the idea beautifully:

Mind is the Master-power that moulds and makes,

And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes

The tool of Thought, and, shaping what he wills,

Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills:

He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass:

Environment is but his looking-glass.

Profound and Concise

Don't be fooled by how short this book is and dismiss it thinking a longer book would make for a better investment of time and attention. That was my initial line of reasoning and delayed my purchasing this book for several months, even though it's only a few dollars!

The lesson contained is one of those concepts so obvious it's almost difficult to accept - that your thoughts dictate your experience, your outcome, that what you are inside inexorably manifests externally. And so to strive for external change before executing the necessary internal, mental "cleansing" (I suppose, re-ordering, cleaning up... you get the picture) is futile. The argument is along the lines that a mind must be like a well-tended garden (in terms of your thoughts) if the goal is to yield desirable results. A poorly or lazily managed mind begets commensurate outcomes in reality.

I listen to this book every week.

Would you consider the audio edition of As a Man Thinketh to be better than the print version?

The narration by Brian Holsopple was exceptionally good. It makes it a joy to listen to this audiobook over and over again.

What did you like best about this story?

The story is succinct and to the point. It covers the most important aspects of taking control of our own minds, with poetic and evocative language.

What about Brian Holsopple’s performance did you like?

Brian Holsopple has an excellent voice for narration and paces the reading of the book perfectly.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book helps me to find resolve and focus when I find my mind wandering to dark and destructive places. It gives me peace of mind.

Any additional comments?

If you value being in control of your mind, but sometimes struggle with maintaining that focus, this book will quickly help you get back on track. It's a masterpiece of writing, narrated with excellence.

A Must Read

If our schools do not have our children read this book, we must. We must raise our children with all the wisdom available to us.

Clear and beautiful

Would you consider the audio edition of As a Man Thinketh to be better than the print version?

I love the comparison between mind and garden. How we grow has to do with what we choose to cultivate and what we choose to weed out. The message really resonated with me and had a strong immediate effect on my consciousness. We easily forget our own power and this is a good reminder, a small step back to get a clearer view. It's short and it is a pleasure so I'll probably listen to it again.

What does Brian Holsopple bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think his pacing is just right.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but I didn't seat, I went for a walk, that is why I use audiobooks.

A book for thought

Eye-opener, easy read. Even though this book is written so long ago it is still relatable to today’s time. I listen to the book twice because I wanted to grasp what the book had to offer. It gave me better insight about myself. It made me think from within. I highly recommend the book for it’s forward thinking.

L'homme est un être spirituel dont la réalité est constituée par ses pensées.

Un excellent livre, dit aux origines du développement personnel.
