An odd, contradictory puff piece. If Allen wrote somthing "now considered a classic self-help book", how is it that he is today "hardly recognised"? "Considered" by whom? And the article would be better if it cited evidence for the purported influence of Allen, instead of just asserting it.

How many books did James Allen write?[edit]

I changed the number of books written by Allen in the article back to 19, as I believe this is the right number. Several of is his books were later split and published as seperate books. For example, All These Things Added ( = Entering The Kingdom + The heavenly life) and From Poverty To Power ( = The Path To Prosperity + The Way Of Peace). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:36, 12 September 2007 (UTC)


Ive just noticed that JA is described as British yet people from other parts of the UK are either Welsh / Scottish (such as Tom Jones the singer is described as Welsh rather than British). Could we have a standard across wikipedia that defines people as British OR describes people by their nationality, In this case, English. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:53, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
