    Prosperity through the knowledge and power of mind (1913) by Annie Rix Militz

    Prosperity through the knowledge and power of the mind  (1913) by Annie Rix Militz (New Thought Movement book) This hand-book of  PROSPERITY was written on the basis, that thought is a substantial influence in the world like electricity, steam, heat, and light. That man can control, direct, transform, and dissipate his thoughts in the same way that he manipulates the forces that are evident to his five senses. If the man who takes this book has studied psychology and metaphysics from this viewpoint, he doubtless has had proof of this thought-power. If he has not, then let him approach this book with a fair mind willing to investigate and not…

    The careful investor (1914) PDF book by Edward Sherwood Mead

    The careful investor (1914) PDF book by Edward Sherwood Mead Excerpt: American investors, under our crude and careless methods of finance, have lost incalculable amounts of money by purchasing bad securities. Not alone has the “get-rich-quick” company preyed upon the investor, but hundreds of millions have been lost in the bonds and stocks of the railroad, public-service, and industrial corporations — securities often issued under the auspices of responsible and respected banking houses, but which, either because of defects in the securities which a careful preliminary examination would have disclosed or because of bad financial management, have failed to come up to expectation. Made wise by costly experience, the American…

    Straight talks on business by William Gamble Free PDF book

    Straight talks on business by William Gamble Free PDF book  (1907) Excerpt from the introduction These articles were hurriedly prepared in the all too few spare moments of strenuous business life; and often as a relief to the mind after a day of mental strain and worry. They accordingly may bear traces of hasty thought and work. It is not pretended that there is anything essentially new in these ‘ Talks.’ It is the old, old philosophy of many succeeding generations of businessmen.  All that can be claimed is that it has been put into a new form, better suited, perhaps, to present-day ideas. If it serves to make young…

    The causes of poverty by Callaghan McCarthy (1906) Free PDF book Excerpt from the author’s introduction: To anyone, anxious to know at once the aim of this work, it might be explained in a single sentence.
