Based on a speech originally given as a lecture to raise money for what would become Temple University, this parable about seeing the riches around you can help give you a new perspective. Short and powerful (the book is much like "Who Moved My Cheese" in that it is brief, but contains an important lesson told in the form of a story) "Acres of Diamonds" will force you to take a new look at your own backyard when looking for opportunity. The basic story revolves around a Persian farmer who loses his life and significant wealth looking for a mine of diamonds when, ironically, his own farm land (which he sold to finance his search for diamonds) literally contained acres of diamonds. Conwell gives several other examples of similar stories revolving around gold, oil, etc. The grass isn't always greener on the other side...don't discount where you are, what you know and the relationships that you already have too quickly. Rambles a bit, but it's still a great story with a timeless message.

Be a winner or a whiner. That is the message in thisshort book. The writing is outdated and dogmatic but the premise is sound--quit looking for greener pastures and blossom where you are planted. Give the people what they want and they will come. Worth a read if you can get past the pontificating. This review refers to the Spire Book version.

I love this book but the free version is full of typos. You may have trouble reading this unless you have already read the hard copy.
