Recommends it for: LOA, Law of Attraction, Napolean Hill readers, Think and Grow Rich readers
Recommended to Princess April by: Letitia Fairbanks
I loved this little book of advice penned by Douglas Fairbanks in 1917, so much of it being the type of material Napolean Hill might have read, researching his seminal "Think and Grow Rich" in 1937. If you're predisposed to LOA material, I think you'll enjoy "Laugh and Live."

"Laugh and Live" is also descriptive of the time just prior to Fairbanks making his silent movie classics of the 1920s. America had yet to enter WWI, and there was a boundless enthusiasm that anyone (man) could get ahead in
Samantha Glasser
I like Douglas Fairbanks' movies, so I was excited to find out he wrote a book in his relatively short life, but when I got it, I was disappointed to find that rather than a memoir, this book is a feel-good self-help kind of manual which repeats over and over the benefits of positive thinking and laughter. It is a real bore, and rather long.
