As a man Thinketh – Review


First of all, it is a gift. I love it, what more can make a book lover happy. Whoever chose this one to courier me, I’m grateful for that and they exactly knew the kind of book I read.

About the book, this is the smallest book I’ve read, after chicken soup for soul in terms of size, but it is a bigger book than all I read so far in terms of content. If you are a thinker, you are going to love it.

As I mentioned before, this book is all about thinking, what thinking could do to one, how thoughts could affect your life.

What I like about this Book?

It makes you think, it makes you Think, it makes you think Better, think Good, and if you are not brain dead and desperately wanted to make some changes the way you think? Read this book. Author strongly believes if you think you are a burger, you will become one.(Ha ha) I’m sorry I can’t stop thinking that one, I thought it’s a good joke ο˜‚ο˜œ. Point is very simple, your thoughts are the bricks you build yourself, the more the good thoughts the more strong and more beautiful you build yourself.

Do I have a complaint about this book?

Yes and No. This book is written in a period of 1900’s. Exactly 1903. I was not born on that period. I wish I am with the author at the time he wrote, Why? I did not like reading this book with a particular gender “Man”. Man thinks, Man rules, Man did. Women was also part of big changes, women was hidden throughout the history like they don’t exist (Yes books exists about women too). But, I would be so happy to read this book without highlighting a particular gender. I would choose the word ‘Human’ instead of ‘he’ did or ‘Man’ did.

Don’t bother about my opinion. Read this book and change your way of thinking for good. It sure will guide you for better thinking and for a better life. You can thank me later for letting that book change your way of Life/Thinking.

Thanks for reading✨

  1. First of all, I didn’t know there were burgers in 1903, so I looked it up. It seems the ubiquitous hamburger was named after the city of Hamburg, Germany. It was on the menue at New York’s Delmonico Restaurant in 1834 where it was called, “Hamburg steak.” It just didn’t start to explode in popularity until the 1904 World’s Fair.

    Yep…I look stuff up…probably too much.

    There are many self-help books that say, “You are what you think.” Every person needs to hear it in the way it gets through to their brains the best. πŸ™‚

  2. you looked about that? I didn’t expect that. That was nice, so it is called Hamburg steak. You do that way too much “Thinking” πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ Thanks for the advice, “Every person needs to hear it in the way it gets through to their brains the best.πŸ€—


  3. β€œif you think you are a burger, you will become one” oh my πŸ”πŸ˜‚ I’ll not πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ
    Nice thoughts Simon! I do believe too that our thoughts and actions build who we are…
    Yes, I guess time back the genders were very divided…luckily nowadays more and more people open their eyes and realize that no matter the gender, everyone can do what they want and like ☺️ but still are some discriminations πŸ™ˆ
    For that time I guess was a controversial book πŸ“–

  4. Not that I’m defending the writer. He’s probably dead and we got no way to confirm if I’m right with what I’m about to say, but since it’s an old book, the usage of the language is different, the author could be using “man” as a general term for “Human” or “mankind”. They do this in Norway. When they say “A man must do this” they actually meant both men and women. Other than that I got nothing much else to say since I basically agree with the things you said πŸ™‚
