It takes a lot of concentration and thought to ring this book dry of all its value, but there's a really important point that the book makes that everyone who's trying to accomplish a goal should learn... and its this... there are a few things that you can do in any business that are extremely important for success. You can accumulate those things into a system through thought and trial and error. Once you have the system down, the really hard work is done. I use the info in this book everyday.

The basic premise of this book, was his success principles: inspiration to action, know-how, learn from activity. Basically, get a desire, know how to work towards that dream, learn from what your doing to further your success likelihood. With that in mind, Clement stresses that success is achieved by those who try. Where there is nothing to lose by trying and a lot to gain if successful, try!

Tons of takeaways for people looking to develop their own system for productivity.
If you are in the sales field you may find this book very beneficial. I, however, could not get into it. The format is very dry and almost exclusively deals with sales techniques. I suppose if you can stick it out to the end then there may be something for the ordinary reader to use but I never made it that far. I must repeat, however, if you are in sales then you should definately read this book.
a self help classic easily worth a 5 star rating, I like w clements style of explaining his success principles with interesting stories and view can get lost in them but remember to always look out for that pearl of wisdom they call contain, it really if understood some immense wisdom for anyone looking to become successful in any aspect of life

It was really good self-help book.
W.Clement Stone is telling us the secrets of success trough his life story,and his success system-that never fails.

I have deep respect for this man,even before I had read/listen any book of his.And this proves it,that Stone is one of the most successful business men and self-help authors that had ever lived.

Great book!

While older, it's still got solid principles and is a great motivator. I was inspired to try to achieve more in my life. First self-help book I've read, and was impressed.
Clearly this book was written a long time ago, however, the fact that the author did make it through the depression increased his credibility.
