Published in 1899. A great little book about how to win life, something everyone should read regardless, of profession, businessman or not. Although it was written in the 1800s,  most of the message in it still hold true! It is a book that breaks the boundaries that we create around ourselves.

The story inside the book itself center on the universal themes of determination and hard work. The essay is based on true story of a young lieutenant, name, Andrew Summers Rowan, was sent to Cuba alone with an extremely important message: to carry a message to Garcia.

Very inspiring book, it offers some great advice on how to succeed in the working world: perseverance, patience, hope, hard work, and no grumbling. It encourages one to live to the fullest.
