(September 9, 1858 - October 2, 1916)
Benjamin Kidd was born in County Clare, Ireland. Benjamin entered the Inland Revenue Department of the Civil Service in 1877. He worked in obscurity there for seventeen years. However, his spare time was devoted to study and writing, in 1894. He became widely known after the publication of his essay, Social Evolution. This work was a worldwide success and was translated into German, Swedish, French, Russian, Italian, Chinese, Czech, Danish and Arabic. The success of his work allowed Benjamin to retire from the Civil Service and in 1898 he travelled extensively throughout America and Canada. These travels resulted in a series of articles commissioned by The Times. He later went on to write many works some of which are considered to be some of the most groundbreaking work ever to be created.
The Science Of Powerby Benjamin Kidd
With all the original work intact and completely translated in to English. This is one of the two books recommended by Napoleon Hill in his vastly popular "Law of Success" series. This is a ground breaking and brilliant book way ahead of its time. Napoleon Hill credits much of his theology on this specific title. Masterfully thought provoking and amazingly timely. This title pushes the boundaries of metaphysics, philosophy and human evolution even by today's standards.
