Alger will help you rethink your own way to success - he provides step-by-step ways that his hero moves forward, both practical and via a positive mindset or values. Penetrating and impactful as they are alive today as in is time. Good ideas are always valuable!
Each of his many wonderful and captivating stories involves Alger's main character achieving extreme wealth and the eventual elimination of their "old ghosts" or enemies. While Alger is noted as a significant figure in the history of American cultural and social ideals is message still needs to be heard more today, in our present economic situation.
If you have ever felt down, or low, or that you will never move forward get yourself a couple of these powerful books!
So having said that, this book is great for two reasons:
1) its shows a method and mindset for success! It's not just a story, but the story explains the thinking and mindset of the hero who overcomes terrible odds to find success. The mindset explained is as powerful then as it is today.
2) while the story is fiction, the hero figures out a way to succeed - it of course depends on factor 1 above, his mindset, but, once we see how his mind works, he thinks of a plan to become successful - and what I like is the principles that are used are not like typical fiction, but of ways and means that anyone could use to become successful, good business ideas that are still on target for today!
This book is great for readers of any age, young or old, as long as you need a lift, and you want something powerful and good in your life, you will enjoy this great work by Alger!
I also recommend these amazing titles that will definitely enrich your path to wealth and self:
Think And Grow Rich: The Personal Study Edition
The Master Key System: The Personal Study Edition
Path To Prosperity - Mastery Of Destiny - Acres Of Diamonds: The Personal Study Edition
The Science of Getting Rich: The Movie - 2 Disk Set
In Bound to Rise, our hero is inspired by another success author, none other then Mr. Benjamin Franklin! Upon reading Franklin's bio, Henry leaves home to begin his own adventure. What is amazing about Bound, is that it is so timeless, one can read this book and see Henry today, using the same principles and traits to get to the top. And that is the real measure of Alger's books, that they are about principles of success that work yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
If you have having a bad year, read this book! It will change your outlook and inspire you to do more than you thought possible!!!
