Samuel Smiles's Self-Help Summary

Samuel Smiles's Self-Help: A 52 brilliant ideas interpretation by Steve Shipside

An immediate bestseller in 1859, Self-help propelled its author to fame and rapidly became one of Victorian Britain's most important statements on the allied virtues of hard work, thrift and perseverance. Smiles' most celebrated book sold 20,000 copies in its first year, became known as the 'bible of mid-Victorian liberalism' and is the prototype of today's motivational and self-help blockbusters. Steve Shipside's brilliant interpretation of Smiles' Self-help enables twenty-first century readers to put into practice the insights of one of the world's most famous self-improvement books. Discover: * Why being true to yourself will help you avoid debt; * That learning to sod the Joneses is the key to happiness; * How to get back on the horse and learn from failure; * Why every moment counts when it comes to self-improvement; * That learning to visualise victory can help you achieve your goals. This interpretation of Samuel Smiles's Self-help is not a substitute for the original. Its purpose is simply to illustrate the timeless nature of Smiles's insights by bringing them to life in a contemporary context. Samuel Smiles' Self-help is an enlightening, entertaining accompaniment to one of the most famous and inspiring books ever written.
