This month's selection: “As a Man Thinketh” by James Allen
Allen's practical philosophy of successful living has awakened millions to the discovery and perception of the truth that "they themselves are makers of themselves." Building on the Bible verse. "As a man thinketh, so he is," Allen insists that it is within the power of each person to form his own character and create his own happiness.
About James Allen
James Allen (1864-1912) was an Englishman who retired from the business world to pursue a lifestyle of writing and contemplation. His books are classics in the fields of inspiration and spirituality. Although best known for As a Man Thinketh, he authored several other books that deal with the power of thought including THE PATH OF PROSPERITY, EIGHT PILLARS OF PROSPERITY and James Allen's BOOK OF MEDITATION FOR EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR.
Allen's books illustrate the use of the power of thought to increase personal capabilities. Although he never achieved great fame or wealth, his works continue to influence people around the world, including the New Thought movement.

About the PDBC:
There is nothing holding us back from the life that we want! So many of us desire to have, do, and be all that we can on a physical, financial, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual level - and we read books - lots and lots of personal development books. But self-created road blocks take consistent awareness and observation to remove. That’s where the book club comes in.
The Personal Development Book Club (PDBC) is a place where we can all get together once a month and not only discuss what we read, but learn from and support one another's individual path of personal growth and achievement. The PDBC is not dedicated to reading only one kind of book, but all books which deem to educate, inspire, and enlighten.Which books would you like to read? Which books have you read that you think others would like to read? Send your suggestions and we will add them to the list! Together, we can all be successful!
