This is an inspiring book about perseverance that encourages those who work hard to reach success. Emerson writes in his Prologue, “Many brilliant men and women in history didn’t gain the same distinction as their peers with less intelligence who worked hard and persevered. Frequently, an individual with superior perseverance and average intelligence outperforms one with superior intelligence and average or below average perseverance.” This is a truly motivational, inspiring book.
