This book will lift you up whenever you feeling down. In life, too many negativities are being thrown at us daily. This book will serve as a reminder that our successful forefathers have gone through the exact trying times as us before they saw light at the end of tunnel. Take life challenges at the chin, fight strong, it ain't over till you say so.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Joseph S. Maresca HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on April 29, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This book reads like a Profiles in Success story. There are

hundreds of bright musings by contemporaries from John Stuart Mill

to Aristotle Onassis to Albert Einstein. John Stuart Mill discussed the interconnectedness of ideas. Aristotle Onassis said that success comes from knowing something that no-one else knows.

In the case of Aristotle Onassis, he purchased fleets of surplus

United States carriers for practically nothing. Then, he turned

around and utilized them to deliver world oil. Albert Einstein

labelled work as "x", play as "y" and silence as "z".

This volume is perfect for students of literature, journalism,

historical buffs and generalists everywhere.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By K. L Sadler VINE VOICE on April 13, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This was a gift from someone. I usually go looking for specific quotes on topics when writing a paper, or giving a speech, and this book is a good compilation of quotes pertaining to achieving success in your life, or as to what constitutes success. This includes sections on topics like competitiveness, aggressiveness, setting up goals, etc. I usually enjoy reading books like these through when I get them so I have an idea of what quotes there are, by whom, and where I can find them. It's a lot easier to find quotes online nowdays, and so I don't need to have books around like this, but it is always a useful reference to have laying around.
