This is a very short book from Google Books.
Anyone who’s read A Message to Garcia will immediately see this as its companion piece.
It’s a bit bombastic, the text is dated, but the writer strives for sentences with some style. It’s a very quick read.

The Making of a Man by Orison Swett Marden
The best parts of this book are the anecdotes about the lives of others.
The saddest part of this book is the expression of ideals that have been cast aside by our present society and culture. It’s depressing to see how far we have fallen and how the hopes of the author for the future have been replaced by rot.
It is impossible to read these old books without running off to a search engine every few pages to look up people who are mentioned. Which then leads to a new round of downloads from Google Books.

Believe it or not, the same damn grating as last time, except now with this:
So I thought I’d use it.
I don’t like the fact its bluish. Different camera. Avoid Nikon Coolpix! They tend to blue things.

I knew that image would come in handy!
