From Success magazine, January 1908.

This is more of a pamphlet than a book. However, it’s one that public domain parasites haven’t yet managed to DMCA away from Google Books.
If you have any interest in Andrew Carnegie (or Napoleon Hill, who mentioned Schwab), it’s worth a download to get for free.
It’s not available at the Internet Archive, so for those outside of the U.S., use this Google Docs link.
Last night I started dipping into a book I got from Google Books, Hidden treasures, or, Why some succeed while others fail (here is a link at the Internet Archive, which is best for those outside of the U.S.).
The book’s value is questionable. It presents biographies of people who gained prominence — mostly by amassing fortunes — at its time.
After reading one brief bio, I looked up the person at Wikipedia and discovered what was not mentioned in the book: The guy came to his fortune through a history of swindling!
I don’t think that’s the lesson the writer intended to present.
