It is a classic story from a much different time in America. The narrator does a great job with all the characters. The derogatory racial words are offensive but it must considered when the book was written. Very entertaining.
Although written in 1937 after the worst years of the Great Depression the story will resonate with people in today's troubled economic times. The author was way ahead of his time not doubt influencing the whole self-help industry incredibly. He intimately studied hundreds of the most successful people in America at the time (i.e. Carnegie, Ford and Edison) for over 20 years meticulously gathering data. The result is a clear understanding of what all these successful people had in common. He spells it all out for you. These principals are timeless. Very motivating read that encourages deep thought and introspection. Well worth a listen. It will change your life, on what degree depends on how much you incorporate and follow through on the wisdom provided. Cheers.
