About the Book: He's my teacher. I shouldn't be alone with him, but I can't help that he's irresistible. I let the door silently close at my back. He stared at me and a taut quiet stretched between us. "I like hearing you play," I said, moving toward him. He turned, in sync with my slow approach. He looked up at me but didn't say anything. I rested my hand on the cold, slick body of the baby grand. "May I?" The muscles in his throat shifted, then he swallowed. "Eden." My knees weakened, like a soft tickling kiss had just been blown against the backs of them. "Is it okay?" I asked. His gaze held mine like two hands joined. He understood what I was really asking. "Let me stay," I said. "Please." "You're going to get me in trouble," he said. About the Author: Jennifer Laurens writes YA fiction from her home in Utah.

About the Book: Only in America. Only in America can a young boy come to this country from a German displacement camp and find his life to be more unsettling than the one he left. Only in America can you lose everything while pursuing your dream. Only in America can Aryeh Pyatiegorskia grow to become Eddie Parker, a small-time bookie who uses his son, a High School basketball star, to fix games for the Mob. That’s the outer story. The inner story is about fathers and sons, what pulls them together and rips them apart. “The language sings, the dialogue sizzles, and the author plays words, rhythm and cadence like a finely-tuned instrument.”

• A story about fathers and sons

This is the story of a man coming to terms with himself, a compelling work of introspection and humor. Beneath the linguistic playfulness and witty banter, the author’s true compassion for his characters shines through. The result is an edgy, hard-driven tale seeking the answer to Eddie Parker’s perennial question: “Who am I and how did I get here?”

• Broadway playwright Arje Shaw returns to the literary spotlight with The Fix, now available with Delphi.

About the Author: Mr. Shaw is best known for his most recent work in 2001, the Broadway production of The Gathering starring Hal Linden, which followed the off-Broadway production starring Theodore Bikel. The New York Times hailed The Gathering as "thoughtful, provocative, filled with humor and warmth, fierce drama, [and] potent theatre; [it] entertains as it touches the heart and stimulates the mind."

• “The language sings, the dialogue sizzles, and the author plays words, rhythm and cadence like a finely-tuned instrument.”

• Since the author is well known locally, we place our main focus on marketing and promotion in New York City. • Book signings, speaking engagements and promoting the author's brand online is our main focus; we are rebuilding his brand by creating DVDs and CDs. • His work, "My Way to Broadway," a guide to authors and writers, will be released this year.

About the Book: "Victory in Iraq: How America Won" is a history of the Iraq War. The book takes the reader from the initial invasion of 2003, through the tough times of the occupation, to the turnaround in 2007, and the final victory over the Mahdi Army in 2008 that reflected a successful American stand-up of Iraq's military and governmental institutions. The book interweaves intense combat action ("I'm impressed with the detail of the combat operations and the close quarters fighting," General Chuck Yeager, USAF, Retired) with the political fight back home. It describes the nearly successful campaign of liberals in Washington, D.C., aided by the "Washington Post" and "New York Times," to de-rail the war effort. Over one million Americans served in Iraq. This book is a tribute to their victory. The word "victory" describes the timeless heroism of Americans named Lee and Bellavia and Lamkin and Kelly and hundreds more (over l00 silver star winners) whose names and actions would never be known but for this book.

About the Book: Driven by uncontrolled deficit spending, a mounting national debt and rising interest rates on that debt, the U.S. government will go into default within the next 20 to 30 years. The resulting crisis will change the political landscape beyond recognition. It will mean the end of American empire, and it will shred the retirement safety net for tens of millions of Boomers and the generations that follow. "Boomergeddon" details how runaway health care costs and a global shift from capital surplus to capital shortages will create a death spiral of mounting national debt, rising interest rates and soaring debt payments. The author also explains how partisan gridlock and the power of the entrenched political class in Washington, D.C., will thwart the painful changes needed to return the country to fiscal sustainability. The final chapters give Boomers a primer on how to survive Boomergeddon and, if they want to undertake the herculean task, how to avert it. About the Author: An award-winning business journalist, the author worked 16 years at Virginia Business magazine as editor and then publisher. He subsequently launched Bacon's Rebellion, a public policy newsletter and blog, and then joined the Boomer Project, a market research firm specializing in marketing to Baby Boomers. Now he contributes to Generational Advisor, a publication that provides generational perspectives to financial advisors.

• In their gut, every American knows the budget is spinning out of control.

Wait until the U.S. government defaults on trillions of dollars of national debt. • Most Baby Boomers look forward to a long, fulfilling retirement like their parents had. "Boomergeddon" explains why their dreams are wildly unrealistic. • Ads targeting TV and radio talk show producers will promote an expert on the No. 1 election topic this fall -- looming federal budget deficits.

The Alexandria Letter By George R. Honig of Chicago, Illinois

FICTION / Historical Available February 2010 Edition: first ISBN: 978-0-578-08731-3 Number of Pages: 336 Size (in inches): 6.00 x 9.00 Price (in USD): 22.95 Format: H George Honig

About the Book: After Cambridge scholar Nathan Tobin discovers and translates an ancient Aramaic letter, he finds himself thrown into an agonizing struggle against powerful forces committed to discrediting him and destroying the letter. The “Alexandria letter,” which was written by a first-century Jewish-Christian scribe in Jerusalem, portrays the lives and actions of John the Baptist, Jesus of Nazareth, and Paul of Tarsus, and describes critical early events in the development of Christianity. The Jesus story narrative parallels those of the gospel stories, but is free of content that is not historically supportable, or that is inconsistent with first-century Jewish scripture, religious practice, and tradition. When presented from this perspective, the story that emerges is a fascinating one, and one that sometimes differs dramatically from that of the corresponding biblical texts. About the Author: George Honig, M.D., Ph.D., is a Professor Emeritus at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. He received his medical degree from the University of Illinois and his Ph.D. from George Washington University. He lives in Chicago with his wife, Olga.

• One of the book's main story lines is a fast-paced and thoroughly engaging saga of discovery, intrigue, and adventure. • Its Jesus story, narrated by a Christian-Jewish scribe, presents fascinating new insights derived from contemporary archaeology and biblical scholarship. • The book emphasizes the Jewish character of Jesus and his disciples, and presents novel perspectives on that world-changing epoch of religious history. • I have given talks about the book at a variety of venues, and I have distributed copies to a good many libraries and reading groups.

About the Book: The question has been around since the first humanoid climbed down from a tree and walked onto the ancient African savanna: What happens when we die? Does our consciousness continue?

About the Book: WHO STOLE MY SOUL is the author’s semi-autobiographical journey of spiritual awakening, an enthralling experience that resulted when his soul was captivated by the act of healing and helping others. Through chance events, the author discovers that the maximum gain is in giving, not getting, and that the meaning of life is finding meaning in life. When the author’s soul is romanced and then stolen by the inner joy of discovering his inner purpose, he enters a new realm of evolution of his soul and spirit. The book employs the literary device of a conversation with the Devil to highlight the inner conflicts and dilemmas that face us in our pursuit for success and happiness. This makes for a witty and warm, albeit unorthodox dialogue which both intrigues and enlightens.

• Thought provoking and insightful.

WHO STOLE MY SOUL is artfully presented, picturesque and full of hidden meanings.

• A good sequel to The Secret and the perfect.

• Beautifully written, very engaging and enlightening. • Eminently readable, inspiring and beautifully presented.

About the Book: Women constituted the majority of voters in the 2008 election. To John McCain's surprise, gender was not the motivation for our votes. McCain's pick of Sarah Palin as his running mate was outrageous. Some women voted for McCain in spite of Palin. Others worked harder to elect Barack Obama because of Sarah Palin. Grandma Palin is tenacious. She has demonstrated her ability to accomplish a goal, but tenacity and prolificacy should never be confused with competency. Palin is not a competent professional woman or a dedicated mother. She characterizes herself as a "rogue" and the "Rebuttal to the Rogue" illustrates why that is an accurate description. About the Author: Registered Nurse, Senior Trial Partner with Thompson & Knight, and now Author, Malia Litman published Rebuttal to the Rogue in November of 2009. In December of 2009 Malia launched the blog malialitman.wordpress.com. In less than one year the blog grew from friends and family reading her posts to over 180,000 views.

• DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK IF YOU BELIEVE:

• Sarah Palin was a good choice for the Vice-President. • "Abstinence" is the only thing we should teach our girls. • Women are good as "trim" and nothing else. • Beauty Pageants are designed to empower women. • Nothing has changed since the election of 2008.

Four Ordinary Women A Meeting at the Cedar Roe Library By Pat Antonopoulos, Patti Dickinson, Shawna Samuel, Jo Ann Stanley of Kansas City

BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY / Women Available April 2009 Edition: 1st ISBN: 978-0982229330 Number of Pages: 280 Size (in inches): 6.00 x 9.25 Price (in USD): 21.95 Format: H Four Ordinary Women

About the Book: This is a book that was written at the Cedar Roe Library by four women who came together to share, in writing, their lives. It was as much a process of self-discovery as it was a supportive environment to unburden. It was a powerful experience, finding our voices to share our lives on a deeper level. As we discovered ourselves and each other, we recognized that the writing that we were doing was pushing us to share on a deeper and more intimate level. The writing forced a greater degree of introspection and we were able to articulate our feelings with more accuracy. Yet this kind of writing was sometimes gritty work. We challenged ourselves to leave it all on the page. And that is the draw of the book. There are no sugar-coated stories within. We talk honestly about raising kids, marriage and balancing our lives so that the “me” piece didn’t get lost. Probably much like you.

These stories are all of our stories. About the Author: Pat Antonopoulos is wife, mother, grandmother, sibling, teacher, friend and volunteer. These gifts are the riches of her life. Patti Dickinson lives in Fairway, Kansas and is a mom-of-eight. At best estimate she has done 6300 loads of laundry, and lost just under 400 socks in the dryer, attended 192 school conferences.

• In another simpler time, women developed friendships over the back fence while their children played. • The deepening isolation of modern society has diminished the opportunities for women to share their lives with their contemporaries. • In 2001, two friends sent a letter inviting a group of women to the Cedar Roe Library meeting room in Roeland Park, Kansas. • There has been newspaper coverage. • Speaking engagements at many women's clubs and organizations. • Book signings.

About the Book: Has the Tribulation begun? Will the world as we know it end on or before December 21, 2012? The Mayan calendar says so, as does the ancient I CHING and the Web Bot, a computer program that taps into the collective planetary unconscious. Some think a meteor or other global disaster will strike, others that a dynamic shift in consciousness will occur. Or perhaps, they say, both will happen and only those who have made the shift will survive. No one knows -- but one thing is certain. You cannot make the shift to higher awareness if you do not know The Truth. Fortunately, the Internet's number one talk show host for seekers, award-winning author Stephen Hawley Martin, has written The Truth for you and those you love. He has done so in a way anyone can understand, accept and thoroughly enjoy. If you read only one book between now and 2012, make it this one. End of the world or not, then you will know The Truth. And The Truth will set you free. About the Author: The author is host of the top-rated weekly show The Truth About Life.

Through Auto Hypnosis,” won the 2007 National Best Book Award for inspirational and motivational audio books.

About the Book: In 2003 Michael Kennedy’s Product Development for the Lean Enterprise was published and promptly turned product development in major corporations on its head. Now, five years later, comes a continuation of that book, including case histories that identify the pitfalls and lessons learned in implementing Toyota’s product development system. The authors also show how Toyota’s set-based learning system can be adapted and adopted by other areas of a business in order to produce major advantages over the competition. Whether a group of engineers is developing new cars, software applications, aerospace equipment, kitchen appliances, controls, sensors, or any of hundreds of different items, the process they follow is pretty much the same, except in one company — Toyota, perhaps the most innovative and highly respected car company on the planet. Companies that are early adopters of the Toyota system are certain to realize tremendous advantages over their competitors. This is a change that is coming to businesses everywhere and this book shows the way. It is a must-read for anyone in management. About the Author: Michael Kennedy and Kent Harmon work extensively with major manufacturers such as General Motors, United Technologies, Boeing, and Delphi to adapt and implement Toyota’s set-based learning for developing products in order to meet the product development needs of those companies and to chart their way into the future.

• This book is based on five years of hands on experience implementing Toyota's product development system. • The first book was a business novel. This book continues the story and will contain actual case histories. • The predecessor to this book has sold more than 60,000 copies and continues to sell several hundred a month

This book, targeted to ad executives, explains how Toyota’s product development system can be used to create great advertising. Aside from generating cars that routinely outsell the competition, the Toyota development system is also virtually waste free because the approach is different than in the West. According to the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences, Toyota's development engineers are four times as productive as their U.S. counterparts. In the West, engineers focus on developing new vehicles in a linear fashion, the same way most ad agencies develop ad campaigns. At Toyota, engineers focus on learning as much as possible and using that knowledge to develop great vehicles without what engineers call loopbacks (false starts). The book explains how to use the same approach to create advertising that gets approved by clients, attracts customers and wins awards -- without the endless rework that is all too common in the advertising business.

• Advertising Age ranked the firm Martin cofounded, The Martin Agency, as #5 advertising agency in the United States in 2007

About the Author: The authors are accomplished admen. Martin co-founded the world-renowned ad firm, The Martin Agency (GEICO caveman & gecko). He also edited two books on Toyota Product Development. Goldman is a top copywriter and creative director having held positions with such firms as Doyle Dane Bernbach and Young & Rubicam. He has won more than 400 advertising awards.

BUSINESS & ECONOMICS / Management Available January 2008 Series: Lean Transformation ISBN: 978-1-892538-41-3 Number of Pages: 192 Size (in inches): 5.50 x 8.50 Price (in USD): 26.95 Format: H Oaklea Press

About the Book: Today's customers want products configured just the way they want, delivered as fast as possible, and only in the quantity needed. In the past, many different configurations would have been built and held in inventory in order to meet these requirements. Today, that isn’t practical. Inventory ties up capital, takes up space, and in today's rapidly changing environment, can quickly become outdated. The solution is Lean Manufacturing — making just what the customer wants once he has already placed an order for it. This isn’t difficult in repetitive environments. But can it be done in environments that are build-to-order, complex and variable? Complex products present many challenges. But the authors of this book have found it can be done using the right production techniques coupled with sophisticated scheduling software. They explain how their techniques are being used today in factories in the U.S., Italy, Romania and other countries.

• There are hundreds of books on Lean Manufacturing, but this is the first to address build-to-order, complex and variable environments.

About the Author: The authors are leaders of J. L. Larco & Associates, a firm specializing in Lean manufacturing, serving clients world wide. This is their third book. One, Lean Transformation, translated into six languages with more than 75,000 in print, is required reading for Lean certification by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers.

• Thousands of manufacturers will benefit from this book. Many will buy it in quantity and distribute it though the ranks.

• Lean manufacturing has swept the globe, but most experts believed it could not be done in complex environments. This book tells how.

• The book will have instant credibility and arouse immediate interest based on the previous success of Lean Transformation. • The authors are well known in manufacturing and are frequent speakers at industry conventions.

About the Book: Whether a group of engineers is developing new cars, software applications, aerospace equipment, kitchen appliances, controls, sensors, or any of hundreds of different items, the process they follow is pretty much the same. Except in one company — Toyota, perhaps the most innovative and highly respected car company on the planet. What is most startling is that Toyota’s product development engineers are four times as productive as their counterparts in other companies, according to a study by the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences. Most follow a linear process in developing new products. Toyota’s engineers do not. As this book reveals and explains, Toyota’s development engineers rely on a development paradigm that is totally different than that found in the West. Companies that are early adopters of the Toyota product development system are certain to realize tremendous advantages over their competitors. This is a change that is coming to businesses everywhere and this book shows the way. It is a must-read for anyone in management. About the Author: The author was the lead engineer at Texas Instruments on many developmental projects, including both missile and manufacturing systems, and he developed the defense business sector strategy for design automation. As a consultant, Mr. Kennedy works extensively with major manufacturers, including GM, United Technologies, Boeing, and others.

• This book has already sold 60,000 copies in hard cover. • The world of product development is changing and this is largely do to this book. Managers need to read it to keep current. • One reason for the popularity of this book is that it is a well-written business novel. Readers get caught up in the story. • A sequel to this book will be coming out in late fall, which should spark interest in this book. • The hardcover version continues to sell 300-400 per month at $26.95.

How to Master Life The Science Behind the Secret By Thomas Troward and James Allen Edited by Stephen Hawley Martin of United Kingdom; Martin, Richmond, VA

SELF-HELP / Success Available April 2007 Edition: Second ISBN: 978-1-892538-43-7 Number of Pages: 160 Size (in inches): 5.25 x 8.25 Price (in USD): 12.95 Format: P Oaklea Press

About the Book: Though shrouded in mystery, down through the ages a select few have known “The Secret” to life mastery. By the early twentieth century, one man of science had put his finger squarely on it. But that man, Thomas Troward, wrote it down in a way that made it accessible only to those willing to struggle with the scientific jargon of the era. Now that jargon has been decoded and transformed into plain English, making the science behind “The Secret” available to all. The works in this book arm readers with the knowledge to fully transform their lives. The techniques can be used to land the perfect job, meet the right mate, conceive the perfect child, and more. Scientifically-based answers are given to such questions as how, why, and when prayer works, how we wittingly or unwittingly create the circumstances of our lives, and why what we dwell on and fear is likely to happen. How to Master Life is meant for all who would ascend to the abundant life they have the courage to imagine. About the Author: Thomas Troward (1847-1916) was born in Punjab India to British parents. He was educated in England and graduated college with gold metal honors. He and James Allen (1864-1916), also English, were leaders of the New Thought Movement. Stephen Hawley Martin, a prizewinning author, editor, and successful businessman, is author of Keys to the Kingdom, a New Consciousness staple.

• This book gives the why and how behind "The Secret." • Long the purview only of academicians and metaphysicians, this plain English version of Troward's magnum opus makes esoteric knowledge available to anyone and everyone. • This is the seminal work of such perennial favors as Think and Grow Rich and The Power of Positive Thinking.

A Witch in the Family An Award-Winning Author Investigates His Ancestor’s Trial and Execution By Stephen Hawley Martin of Richmond, VA

HISTORY / United States Available August 2006 ISBN: 978-1-892538-44-4 Number of Pages: 288 Size (in inches): 6.00 x 9.00 Price (in USD): 15.95 Format: P Oaklea Press

About the Book: The author grew up in the shadow of an ancestor who was hanged for witchcraft. Historical evidence shows his seven-times great grandmother, Susannah North Martin, was a spirited, independent, and highly-capable woman who did not suffer fools well at a time when women were supposed to be submissive, and were regarded as second-class citizens. But was she really a witch? Read this book and then decide. Having a witch in the family caused Martin to see things differently from an early age. He realized people can be wrong though they may hold positions of authority and be regarded by others as experts. His skepticism is brought to bear on the 1692 Salem witch trials and the interpretations and explanations that followed. The result will open your eyes and may challenge your world view, which is why he cautions readers to be prepared for beliefs they take for granted to fall apart as they read this work. Get ready to experience a rare glimpse of reality that is worth far more than the price of his book. About the Author: Stephen Hawley Martin is the only two-time winner of the Writer’s Digest Book Award for Fiction and is also the recipient of the Independent Press Award for Fiction. He has written and published four novels, five nonfiction books, and has edited many more. He, his wife and three school-age children live in Central Virginia and enjoy skiing, baseball, and football.

• New, highly-plausible reasons are offered for what really lay behind the outbreak of witch hysteria in 1692 Salem • New scientific research and theories provide the basis of convincing arguments for what led to the accusers’ fits and testimony of harassment by witches’ specters • National TV interviews will be sought to air in the weeks leading up to Halloween 2006

Lean Enterprise Leader How to Get Things Done without Doing It All Yourself By Stephen Hawley Martin of Richmond, VA

BUSINESS & ECONOMICS / Management Available October 2005 ISBN: 978-1-892538-47-5 Number of Pages: 160 Size (in inches): 5.50 x 8.50 Price (in USD): 18.95 Format: H Oaklea Press

About the Book: Nowadays, world-class companies have eliminated management hierarchies to cut costs, improve quality, and become more responsive to customers. The blueprint to accomplish this was the best-selling forerunner to this book, LEAN TRANSFORMATION. Becoming a lean enterprise has fundamentally changed how people in these businesses are expected to operate. Rather than superiors telling subordinates what to do, and subordinates doing it, they must get things done by working on empowered teams comprised of peers from other departments. A difficulty many in lean enterprises face is they are expected to get more done with fewer resources than they had before. Administrative support, for example, has gone the way of the buggy whip. Since “work flows toward competency unless abated” a few individuals end up doing it all. It’s no surprise, or secret, they’re overworked. But this doesn’t have to be. This book explains in simple, everyday language a process anyone, regardless of inherent leadership skills, can use to spread out the work, create a sense of urgency and accountability, and get everyone pulling their own About the Author: Author half a dozen books and the editor of two best selling titles that have had a huge impact on the lean movement, LEAN TRANSFORMATION and PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT FOR THE LEAN ENTERPRISE, he is the co-author of LEAN ADVERTISING. Now Chairman & CEO of The Oaklea Press, he is the former principal of a top tier advertising agency.

• The forerunner to this book, LEAN TRANSFORMATION, has sold 50,000 copies in the U.S., and been translated into Russian, Chinese, Korean, German, and Italian. • People who read and used LEAN TRANSFORMATION, the most popular book on going lean, will want to know what this book has to say. • The cover of the forerunner book showing a snail transforming into a leopard is well-known and often seen in factories. This book capitalizes on it.

Product Development for the Lean Enterprise Why Toyota's System is Four Times More Productive and How You Can Implement It By Michael N. Kennedy of Anna, TX

BUSINESS & ECONOMICS / General Available April 2003 Series: Lean Transformation series ISBN: 978-1-892538-09-3 Number of Pages: 254 Size (in inches): 6.00 x 9.00 Price (in USD): 26.95 Format: H Oaklea Press

About the Book: This is the must-read of the decade for anyone whose livelihood depends on new products. Those familiar with industry today know western companies are scrambling to emulate the Toyota Production System. But most don't realize that Toyota's new product development system is every bit as important to Toyota's ongoing success. If they've heard that Toyota's development engineers are four times more productive than their western counterparts, they probably chalk it up to Toyota Production System techniques. But they're wrong in doing so. While both systems deliver extremely high productivity, and both free people to do their best, there really aren't many similarities in how the systems work. Such techniques as concurrent engineering and parallel development are used to increase options and creative possibilities while at the same time lowering the risk of failure. No company that depends on an ongoing flow of new and improved products can afford to ignore the revelations this book contains or the potential advantages in terms of productivity and creativity that can accrue from the Toyota method.

• The must-read of the decade for managers whose companies' futures depend on new products. • Productivity of new product engineers in most U.S. companies can be increased by 400%! • Articles by the author and book reviews in business publications, particularly trade magazines having to do with product development.

About the Author: After 30 years with Texas Instruments, the author now works extensively with the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences, and companies such as General Motors, United Technologies, and Allied Signal, to enhance product development systems. This book is an outgrowth of a nationwide study involving a wide spectrum of companies to determine and document the most effective product development methodology.

In Tune with the Infinite An Inspirational Masterpiece that Transcends Time By Ralph Waldo Trine of Mt. Airy, New York

SELF-HELP / Success Available June 2002 ISBN: 978-1-892538-06-2 Number of Pages: 163 Size (in inches): 5.25 x 8.25 Price (in USD): 11.95 Format: P Oaklea Press

About the Book: A must-read for all who’d like to strengthen their connection to the Infinite Mind in order to enjoy a free-flow of abundance, personal blessings, intuitive knowledge and the strong sense of well-being that results from a solid connection, this classic inspired a generation, selling more than 2,000,000 copies. It is the seminal work for such best-sellers as Think and Grow Rich, and The Power of Positive Thinking. The author, Ralph Waldo Trine, explains that there is only One Life, which he called Infinite Spirit, that underlies, supports and informs all reality. Infinite Spirit takes on the characteristics we ourselves either consciously or subconsciously assume it has. The result is that we wittingly or unwittingly create ourselves as well as the circumstances and the conditions of our lives. Henry Ford was so impressed with this book that he ordered copies en mass and distributed them free of charge to other American industrialists. Suffice it to say, anyone who's never read In Tune with the Infinite is in for a profound experience and perhaps a revelation. About the Author: The author was a mentor of the New Thought Movement. His writings had a great influence on many of his contemporaries including Ernest Holmes, founder of Religious Science, Queen Victoria, and Henry Ford, who credited his success to Trine's teachings. No other New Thought author has sold more books. Trine died peacefully in 1958 at the age of 91.

• A true classic, The Power of Positive Thinking and Think and Grow Rich are but two titles that stem from this book. • Henry Ford attributed his success to this book. He distributed copies free to other industrialists. • Students of New Thought know the author and his work, of which this is the most famous.
