Best Spirituality Book for Depression: As A Man Thinketh by James Allen
As A Man Thinketh is a simple book. Skillfully written, but very simple. It’s a collection of aphorisms–one-liners and short paragraphs–all making, essentially, the same point. As a man thinketh, so is he, James Allen writes.
He writes it over and over again.
The book is sweet, though. It’s old-fashioned and inspiring, particularly if you’re in need of some encouragement. It’s fun to read a turn-of-the-century classic once in a while, if only to remind yourself these New Age concepts aren’t actually so new.
