This book reads like a Profiles in Success story. There are
hundreds of bright musings by contemporaries from John Stuart Mill
to Aristotle Onassis to Albert Einstein. John Stuart Mill discussed the interconnectedness of ideas. Aristotle Onassis said that success comes from knowing something that no-one else knows.
In the case of Aristotle Onassis, he purchased fleets of surplus
United States carriers for practically nothing. Then, he turned
around and utilized them to deliver world oil. Albert Einstein
labelled work as "x", play as "y" and silence as "z".

This volume is perfect for students of literature, journalism,
historical buffs and generalists everywhere.
