As a Man ThinkethBy James Allen

“All that we achieve and all that we fail to achieve is the direct result of our own thoughts.”

A classic work in the truest sense, few books have been so widely read as “As a Man Thinketh”, have stood the test of time so well, and have had such an immense impact on generations of readers. The reason for this is that it conveys such a simple, yet profound message: You are what you think.

postheadericon My Life and Work

My Life and WorkBy Henry Ford

Though the title of “My Life and Work” suggests the book to be the autobiography of Henry Ford, this is in fact a manual of business philosophy by one of the world’s greatest industrialists, businessmen, entrepreneurs and visionaries. The book describes how Ford introduced the assembly line, reduced working hours, a minimum wage, the five-day work week, etc. at the beginning of the previous century.

Manufacturing methods such as “Just-in-Time” (JIT) manufacturing are described. The JIT methodology was later on adopted by Toyota in Japan and is in common use today amongst many large manufacturing concerns in the world. Ford’s story and business philosophy is brilliantly chronicled in this biography. Much of Ford’s wisdom has been forgotten today and therefore entrepreneurs and business managers alike would do well to take another look at this classic work on business management.

postheadericon The Great Boer War

The Great Boer WarBy Arthur Conan Doyle

Arthur Conan Doyle made his reputation as a novelist, but far stranger than fiction is the creator of Sherlock Holmes’ tale of the Boer War in South Africa. The then 40-year-old novelist wanted to see the war first hand as a soldier, but the Victorian army balked at having a popular author wielding a pen in its ranks. The army did accept him as a doctor and Doyle was knighted in 1902 for his work with a field hospital in Bloemfontein.

Doyle’s vivid account of the battles is in part thanks to the eye-witness accounts he got from his patients. Doyle has thoroughly mastered the details of the campaign, and presents them in a form that can be easily understood. Furthermore, his descriptions of the various engagements are masterpieces of graphic writing.
