P. T. Barnum's lecture, The Art of Money-Getting, extolls his virtues for success in business. He warns people to not believe in false economy. The simplest pattern for success, he says, is to spend less than we make. Barnum weaves his lesson with proverbs from philosophers, rags-to-riches stories, and his personal experiences in the business world.

The guidelines are delivered through a series of maxims on which P. T. elaborates where he sees fit. He maintains that a true businessman rarely indulges in alcohol or tobacco.

The print edition of the lecture was published by Ward, Lock, & Co. Hints and Helps: How to Make a Fortune is an alternate title for this work. Download and start listening now!

    " A good quick little read. The advice is pretty timeless. I loved how Barnum described economy. Don't be a cheapskate and give up stuff that would benefit you in order to spend money on crap you don't want. Choose a profession that suits you and choose a good location to practice it in. Don't smoke and don't get wasted at business meetings. That pretty much sums it up but it's written in the same grand early style that makes authors like Ben Franklin superstars even today. "

    " Moral discourse of sorts. About saving more than you earn, being honest in business, not borrowing money, woes of inherited wealth, importance of education, etc. Very prodestant work ethicy. "
