Self Help; with Illustrations of Conduct and Perseverance

Gelesen von LibriVox Volunteers

(5 Sterne; 3 Bewertungen)

Self-Help is the book that gave its name to the whole genre of literature known by that name. It is full of profiles of individuals who, through hard work, perseverance, and taking advantage of every opportunity that came their way, succeeded. At the same time, it discourages greed and promotes charity and philanthropy. It has been called "the bible of mid-Victorian liberalism", and it raised Smiles to celebrity status almost overnight.
