James Allen (1864-1912) retired from the business world to pursue a life of writing and contemplation. He saw the darkness of the world and believed he had an answer – and millions of readers agreed with him. One of the most popular writers in the fields of inspiration and spirituality at the turn of the 20th century, Allen diffuses the darker side of human nature with his calming thoughts on transcending the temptations that lead to grief and suffering, pain and sorrow.His words continue to motivate readers today to take the reins of their own happiness and be the guide of their own lives. From Passion To Peace was first published in 1910.
