Overview

2011 Reprint of 1921 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Although Kyne's tale of business smarts has been around for some time (it was first published by William Randolph Hearst in 1921), it doesn't feel dated. Indeed, lumber wholesaler Cappy Ricks's situation (he "had more troubles than a hen with ducklings") mirrors that of many business leaders today. It's a straightforward parable about a young war veteran who's handed an opportunity that will either make or break his career. If he accepts the job and pulls it off, he's a go-getter; if he fails, it's curtains. The kid's motto-"It shall be done"-sums up Kyne's point: even if you're unsure, say you can do it. Then figure out how to do it and make sure you succeed. Go above and beyond.

A great motivational book whether you are in sales, an admin position or feeling like you're in a slump. I give these out as gifts to everyone that comes in through our training classes and they love it too.

One of the best books I have ever read. A book that everyone should read. The style of writting was a bit hard at times but it made the book unique. Crabbys' one sentence phrases were a delight.

If someone is looking for the inspriation to get going, or keep going, this is a must read. Once I started reading I could not stop and in a little over an hour had completed the book. The greatest message I got was, no matter what the hurdle is, you will win if you keep going, and never quit.
