Admired as "the greatest French short story writer," and emulated by Somerset Maugham and O. Henry, Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) was a master of plot construction and a keen recorder of life, translating his observations into finely crafted short stories that spoke entire volumes.
This edition features twelve of de Maupassant's best-known stories, each reflecting the author's keen, compassionate insights into human behavior. Presented in a dual-language format with new translations by Stanley Applebaum, the stories — written between 1876 and 1890 — represent de Maupassant's major recurring subjects and themes, both tragic and comic. From meditations on the nature of love to jocular stories of friendship and misadventure and tales of irrational, heartfelt anguish, this masterful collection displays the full range of de Maupassant's genius.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite book of all time I read this book 25+ years ago and it is still the best book I've ever read. No wonder it is one of the 50 bestselling books of all time. I am a Napoleon Hill Foundation Certified Instructor. Tom (Too tall) Cunningham

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awakes the genius that lies asleep in your brain Think and Grow Rich There is yet to be another diligent author that can deliver the same level of inspiration, motivation, and personal assistance as Napoleon Hill in Think and Grow Rich. This entrepreneurs bible to success was written only after more then twenty years of intensive, thorough, examination of the characteristics and productive habits of many successful Americans. Napoleon without question, was certified to claim he discovered the secret to success. Mr. Hill, being inspired by Andrew Carnegie, (a very success American business man) continued after his research, fabricating this beneficial book of art literature about his definition of the secret to success. Napoleon goes into depth analysis about the concept that all earned wealth, and achievement comes from the creative faculty of brain. Providing magic formulas, with direct techniques, principals and laws, he delivers mastered instructions, to be able to procure anything you desire and/or achieve in life. “The mind can achieve whatever it can conceive…” he personally states throughout the book. He also outlines the very important Laws of Success, to adhere by in order to experience the true feeling of happiness and victory. He intended to share this information to those who fear they will live in poverty (due to the fact this book was written during the 1930s depression era), and especially to those hard working acquisitive humans, who already hold a strong burning desire in achieving anything from those wanting to loose a few pounds to those who have an great urge to achieve the acquisition of wealth . It is more generally directed to those who desire financial freedom. He encourages to dissipate and avoid any negative impediments, derogatory statements/criticism made by the people around you. He rejuvenates the self esteem of the diffident readers of who’s minds are at the peak of loosing all their confidence in themselves. Making them believe the mere idea they need to continue on striving for what they want in life, with the important quality of persistence, knowledge, creative imagination, and staying positive. This review is just a small insight on the book. In other chapters, Napoleon preaches about faith, sex, decision, indecision, procrastination, and creating a mastermind with the people around you. Being very discursive throughout the book, he covers everything you need to know about becoming the person you want to become. Overall this book incriminates one to maintaining a healthy and productive lifestyle and encourages the mind to be receptive to ideas, that will lead you in the correct logical way to think and grow rich.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4.5 STARS Hands down on of the best books ever written on the subject of wealth and success. It's a classic! This book is pretty basic, pretty simple, definitely not technical, but, it is very good. This is one of the first books that comes to mind when I think of what got me started on my journey of personal discovery and what started my interest in finance, investing and business in general. I can't even remember when I first read this book. It was so long ago now that I can hardly remember. If you have read any books in the Self Help or Success genres you have almost certainly heard of this book and have probably read about some of the principles. But, let me tell you... you must read this book, whether you are just starting out or are a seasoned vet... this is a must. I can't say anything else about it, except READ IT! This is a goddamn great piece and something that I hope you have already read and if not that you will beg, borrow or steal it in the near future. Cheers, R

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Think and Grow Rich Awesome book! One of the best books i've read!
Date published: 2007-11-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read at least once in your life! The sooner you read this book... the better! Although the concept of "rich" is clearly financial, it is by no means limited to money. I doubt that there is anyone who has achieved a measurable amount of success in their life that hasn’t read it or that wouldn’t agree with it principles. It is timeless and without a doubt an essential reading for anyone who wishes to improve their life. If you are looking for a book to change your life... this one will do it! It's easy to understand, fun to read and completely actionable. It's perhaps the most important book ever written!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Think and Grow Rich This is one of the books that started it all. Napoleon Hill wrote this, honest and timeless classic of the financial self-help genre to further the ability of all persons to understand not only what you must do to become wealthy but also how you must release yourself from the boundaries within your mind. If you are ambitious and truly want to learn how to succeed in the biggest possible ways, read this book. For the right type of people this book can be truly all inspiring and will definitely get you in the right mind set for huge success! One final word on this book is that it also harkens back to a time when success was largely based on ones character and not on the how to's in life. Unlike books written today where you read pages and pages of what it takes and what others have done but do not even touch upon the true character of highly successful people. This book is a must read for all interested in the subject of becoming rich.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Read! Very few books have had the staying power of this one. Written in the 1930's the ideas and techniques discussed are just as relevant today as they were when Andrew Carnegie taught them to Napoleon Hill. In fact, Think and Grow Rich is one of the few books I recommend my small business coaching clients read to learn how to run their ONLINE businesses. I'm continually amazed by the new ways they find to apply this information that was written 70 years before the Internet was even created! Everyone in business should read and put to use the information in this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Desire meets Success I would just like to say that this book helped me in every aspect of my life. I learned alot about the way people think, how to cope with all your fears, and how to overcome your most inner troubles. I used this book not to become richer with money, but rich with life. I lost 123 lbs. just using the same rules that apply to making money. I learned how to find the right mate, how to get the right job, and how to keep the right friends. In all honesty, next to reading the bible to help you through your bad times, this was the next best read. It doesn't matter what religion you are, it will strike the right cord. It's not a book with many pages, but the words are there to last you a lifetime. No doubt in my mind, this book is a hot # on my list, and I would recommed it to anyone who is looking for the path to success in any area of your life. And like anything else that makes you face your own fears, it takes awhile before you can finish this book, because the hardest fears to overcome are the truths, and on that note, rememeber this 'DESIRE' MEANS SUCCESS'.
