In 20 short pieces with the general aim of pointing the reader toward "those heights of self-knowledge and self-conquest which...rise above the turbulence of the world," James Allen-one of the most popular writers in the fields of inspiration at the turn of the 20th century-makes his case in this 1910 work for shutting out the noisier, baser aspects of life in order to focus on the enlightenment of the self. Included are essays on true happiness, integrity, belief, mental attitude, and the use of reason. As practical as he is spiritual, Allen once again shows how true salvation can, and must, come from within. British author and pop philosopher JAMES ALLEN (1864-1912) retired from the business world to pursue a life of writing and contemplation. Best known for As a Man Thinketh, he authored many other books about the power of thought including The Way of Peace, The Mastery of Destiny, and Entering the Kingdom.
