  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vic | 1/10/2014

    " Book content is basically the inspirational lecture/speech that the author regularly presented to audiences early in the twentieth century. Well done motivational presentation. "

    " Your pot of gold may be right under your feet...so don't look too far on the horizon for your happiness! Quick read! Keep it by your toilet and you can finish it in four or five number 2's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doug | 12/19/2013

    " The famous lecture by Russell Conwell that generated the funding to start Temple University. Very aptly demonstrates how opportunities are laid out before us if we only look for them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lux | 11/22/2013

    " Read this over the weekend, found it to be insightful; however, it read like so many of the later business success books. The difference was that it had a christian perspective on success. Thought provoking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andd Becker | 5/31/2013

    " Conwell's message: To be great, begin where you are. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 10/14/2012

    " Opportunities are right on your doorstep, you don't have to look far to get them. Start from what you enjoy doing, give your best to it and in the end you'll be able to gather your own diamonds. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh McKenna | 9/25/2012

    " An intriguing, though scattered sermon-narrative built around the idea of success and God. With so very many anecdotes, this makes for a unique read, and in retrospect would make a wonderfully divided devotional should it be taken in pieces. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas Hadley | 9/25/2012

    " Great story. I love the force with which he taught about opportunities. His lessons are simple yet powerful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Cook | 8/18/2012

    " It's right under your nose! "

    " The road to wealth is to be true to your calling and to serve a genuine need in your community. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 4/27/2012

    " Good read. Conwell was a real forward thinking man who found varying ways to make a very common sense point. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 4/18/2012

    " Meh. Interesting ideals, so so stories, less than stellar delivery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jellyfish | 11/14/2011

    " A great inspiring book to read. I am never tired of re-reading this. Simple and fundamental truths to living. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric K. | 11/6/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bryan | 5/1/2011

    " Good book about making the best of what you have, rather than always looking on the other side of the fence. The basis of the book is that there is opportunity and wealth all around us. In our current job for example or in our community. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelley Taylor | 2/15/2011

    " I found the book challenging to read due to font size and layout, but once I committed to it, I found many valuable nuggets. Russell Conwell was a fascinating man, and I am glad to now know a bit about him and his noble work. "
