The back caption interested me enough to pick this book up, claiming to be the "beloved, all-time bestseller that has helped more Americans find more happiness than any other book besides the Bible!" I was very disappointed. It's no more than the complaints of a petty person who can do nothing but nitpick and condescend to other peoples' actions, with the apparent belief that human beings are too full of themselves and therefore, although he does not know for sure on any account, but likely we are doomed to failure and he rejoices in that. How petty!! Was not impressed with this tiny book, at all.

Very short read but interesting theology. While not necessarily preaching pray and grow rich, Conwell does make the point that people often search for their happiness, wealth, etc. everywhere else and blind themselves to the fact that the "diamonds" they seek may well be in their own backyard. Rev. Conwell makes no apologies for this sermon on seeking wealth, in fact, he states it is every Christian's duty to obtain wealth so that we might be a blessing to others that are less fortunate. His ideas does make you stop, look around, and say to yourself, "What might I be missing?"
