James Allen was born in Leicester, England, in 1864. After the unexpected death of his father, he left school at age fifteen in order to help support his family. For the next twenty-three years, Allen worked, read, and observed the world around him. At age thirty-eight, he wrote From Poverty to Power, one of the first motivational books. His next book, As a ManThinketh, established his reputation as an inspirational writer. Although his writing career lasted only ten years, until his death in 1912, Allen produced twenty titles, which continue to motivate and inspire.

Introduction or preface
I send forth this little book, knowing it cannot fail on its mission—knowing it is alive because it has been lived; and am confident that those who use it for daily medication, must feel its power, and realize its blessing, because it is the actual experience of an individual life.
