    "Circa 1910"

    The description of this classic should include a clear reference to the pre-1910 origin of the work.

    The style of writing is foreign to most modern listeners to the point that it will not work for self improvement efforts. It is a written in a distinct formal verse that had virtually dissappeared by the end of WW II.

    The writer was a very religious man and that comes into the work in a way common in the 19th and early 20th century. An example of this, "Only god knows all truth; therefore only God can have real wisdom or know the right thing to do at all times, and man can receive wisdom from God. I proceed to give an illustration: Abraham Lincoln had limited education, but he had the power to perceive truth" also shows the clearly 19th century references that pervade the book.

    The book is a great read if you are doing scholarly research into the origins of the modern American self help philosophies, but not a good read if you are a modern American trying to practice self help activites.

    "disappointing"

    I was under the impression that "The Science of Being Great" would actually discuss the science behind developing great characteristics. It absolutely was not! The title is completely misleading and, in my personal opinion, is not appropriate. This book really reminded me of "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill, which I already own. My biggest complaint is that it does not draw upon any science or research at all; it is just philosophical pondering in a dull and monotone way...not my cup of tea.
