But tragedy strikes and what looked like the simple case of a prank gone wrong soon ignites into a public battle. Noah is British. Abdi is a Somali refugee.

As a man thinketh by James Allen( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Allen's literary essay and book "As a Man Thinketh" was originally published in 1903. The novel is written in terms of responsibility assumption, which is a doctrine that any person has complete responsibility for the events that happen to them. Every situation you are in is because of your choice, no other outside factors. Allen's novel takes this thought and acts as a guide for an individual to lead a more full and happy life, by using the power of thought to change one's life through a better attitude. Allen is quoted saying "The price of the book is only one shilling, and it can be carried in the pocket" and that it is "A book that will help you help yourself."
