Pushing to the Front

Gelesen von Luke Sartor

(4,719 Sterne; 64 Bewertungen)

Published in 1894, this is the first book by the renowned inspirational author, Dr. Orison Swett Marden. Pushing to the Front is the product of many years of hard work, and marks a turning point in the life of Dr. Marden. He rewrote it following an accidental fire that brought the five-thousand-plus page manuscript to flames. It went on to become the most popular personal-development book of its time, and is a timeless classic in its genre. Filled with stories of success, triumph and the surmounting of difficulties, it is especially well-targeted at the adolescent or young adult. It is a book to inspire the reader towards a noble sense of integrity, a strong moral foundation, and solid, enduring self-discipline to let the reader put each foot forward as the leader they are meant to be.

A life time investment

(5 Sterne)

Investment made to ourselves makes us wealthy. To empty our pockets into our brains, should be the greatest investments of our life.

A fitting title for a great self-help book.

(5 Sterne)

This book covers many topics and reminds us of many prosperous principles. It reviews many stories of true heroes, especially those found in the United States before the Federal Reserve and other political cancers began to infest American society and education. If you are looking for great advice based on a good solid foundation, you will discover many valuable gems of truth in this book.

What a great book! Very fundamental for character building.
