From the presentation written by the author of the book:
The purpose of this book is a very direct and simple one. It makes no pretense to literary excellence nor does it seek to demonstrate any unusual scholarship on my part. This is simply a practical, direct action, personal improvement manual. It is written with the sole objective of helping the reader achieve a happy, satisfying and worthwhile life. I throughly and enthusiastically believe in certain demonstrated and efective principles which, when practiced, produce a victorious life. My aim is to set them forth in this volume in a logical, simple and undertandable manner so that the reader feeling a sense of need, may learn a practical method by which he can build for himself, with God's help, the kind of life he deeply desire.
