Hidden Treasures

Harry A. LEWIS ( - )

"Some succeed while others fail. This is a recognized fact; yet history tells us that seven-tenths of our most successful men began life poor." A selection of mini-biographies teaches us how some successful men have overcome odds to make their mark on history. (Summary by Lynne Thompson (quote from Introduction))
