Summary

"As we are, so we do; as we do, so it is done to us; we are the builders of our fortunes." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
 

We are the Builders of Our Fortunes: Success through Self-Reliance is the first-ever collection of Emerson's essential writings on success. 
 

In these ten essays, Emerson will teach you: 

  • How to develop your inner genius;
  • How the power of thought shapes our world;
  • How the universe responds to our every action;
  • Why wealth is a spiritual phenomena;
  • Why economies rise or fall;
  • What defines human greatness;
  • And much more. 

Each section highlights "Emerson's Keys to Success" for study and inspiration.

What's the hype about?

Boring and I haven't gained any knowledge or pleasure from this book.
Narrator's performance is qutie terrible - sounds robotic.
