My wife, Julie, is ordering the above book for me from Amazon.com. A new book costs $20 but they have 16 used books for $2.98 plus shipping, about $7.00 total. If there was a problem with good old Henry David, other than dying too young, I don't know what it is. I wanted to buy the book on my Kindle, but it is not available.
A few years ago, when the Clintons were all in the news, Hillary Clinton was made fun of because she mentioned that the long deceased Eleanor Roosevelt, President Franklin D. Roosevelt's wife, helped Hillary in her decision making. I felt sorry for those who made fun of Hillary because I considered them to be ignorant.
In the late '60s I became familiar with the work of Napoleon HIll and the book pictured on the left. I credit the wisdom discovered in this book to have more influence upon my life's successes than upon any other source, except, of course, the Bible. Not only did I give copies to each of my children, I bought the book by the case to give to others, the latest to a recent college professor who sought my help.
In the book, Hill encouraged studies of people in history that we admired and that we espire to simulate the strengths and personalities that we so much admire.
Who did I so admire? First of all was my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Among others there were Thoreau, John Paul Jones, Ghandi, Alexander Hamilton, and George S. Patton.
