Orison Swett Marden created Success magazine and wrote this little book (really a collection of essays) when Teddy Roosevelt was President in 1908. (<-- That's awesome.)
Orison leans on Ralph Waldo Emerson and reminds me a bit of James Allen. The theme of this book, as the title suggests, is the fact that "He can who thinks he can." (And, equally importantly, he can't who thinks he can't.)
Some of my favorite Big Ideas:
1. Do You Think You Can? - (I do.)
2. Self-Depreciation - Is a crime.
3. Building a House - Is not done by wishing.
4. God's Great Kindergarten - All life is our classroom.
5. Dreaming - Don't stop doing it.

What I liked best about this book is its forthrightness, and focus on character and integrity, which is well spoken and presented. I would rate this in the top 20 of hundreds of self-improvement/motivation/success oriented books I've read, and am grateful to Jeffrey Gitomer for recommending the author in one of his books/videos.
This is one of a handful of life-changing improvement focused books and is one I buy for families/friends. Very well done.
