On March 18, 2010, I posted on FaceBook, and on harrythelibrarian.blogspot.com, “Harry’s Invocation For Brockton Rotary.” The key sentence was, “The most powerful four words, the shortest prayer and most challenging statement of faith, the crux of the Lord’s Prayer, for me, is ‘Thy Will Be Done.’” Imagine my delight, reading Vitale’s inspirational paean to Barnum, with his description on page 146 of finding Barnum’s “tiny, unadorned headstone… And on the front of it, still legible after over 100 ...more

Fantastic insight into a fantastic salesman, P.T. Barnum. Very useful if you want to learn how he sold ideas and the desires of his generation. What really impressed me was how he let his adversities wash through him and kept moving on with a smile. Definitely worth reading! I got my copy from the Shah Alam Public Library.

One of my favorite books for the entire year. For someone thats into marking and promotion. Joe wips out some heavy hitter ideas pass down from Barnum. Was also a deeper look for me into who Barnum was. Definitely rereading this one several times.

Tremendous insight into the life and work of P.T. Barnum. The author provides tips and ideas to help the reader develop a "Barnumesque" mindset when promoting their own products or services.
