Self Help is the original book on success. Written long before Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich, Wallace D Wattles' The Science of Getting Rich, Charles F. Haanel's The Master Key System and P. T. Barnum's The Art of Money Getting Self Help mapped the road to success as never before.Each chapter of Self Help presents examples of hard work and triumph with numerous biographical episodes. From the chapter Three Great Potters to Energy and courage, Men in Business and Money, It's Use and Smiles lays the groundwork for your own success.Samuel Smiles was a Scottish author and reformer. The origins of Self-Help lay in a speech he gave in March 1845 in response to a request by a Mutual Improvement Society, published as The Education of the Working Classes. "I would not have any one here think that, because I have mentioned individuals who have raised themselves by self-education from poverty to social eminence, and even wealth, these are the chief marks to be aimed at. That would be a great fallacy. Knowledge is of itself one of the highest enjoyments. The ignorant man passes through the world dead to all pleasures, save those of the senses...Every human being has a great mission to perform, noble faculties to cultivate, a vast destiny to accomplish. He should have the means of education, and of exerting freely all the powers of his godlike nature"
