James Allen Collection: As a Man Thinketh, The Eight Pillars of Prosperity, The Way of Peace
As a Man Thinketh, The Eight Pillars of Prosperity, The Way of Peace
by James Allen
Born in Leicester, England, into a working-class family, Allen was the elder of two brothers. His mother could neither read nor write while his father, William, was a factory knitter. In 1879, following a downturn in the textile trade of central England, Allen's father traveled alone to America to find work and establish a new home for the family. Within two days of arriving his father was pronounced dead at New York City Hospital, believed to be a case of robbery and murder. At age fifteen, with the family now facing economic disaster, Allen was forced to leave school and find work.
