Written in 1901 these are uplifting business oriented biographies of men like Marshall Field, John D Rockefeller, Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Edison and women like Helen Gould and Julia Ward Howe (creator of Battle Hymn of the Republic). I was referred this book by Maria Popova over at Brainpickings and loved it—I’ve referred to it many times since reading it.

Amazon description

Inspiring, thought provoking, and motivating! A great book to read when you are feeling down and out to help pick you up and know that success can happen and that the pitfalls are just part of the game ... as proved time and again by those monumental men and women who "made it."
