Cast Upon the Breakers
There are many of us who still believe in the 'American Dream'. Who see in America as a land of opportunity, where a person may make what he wants of himself. This is the reason for the success of movies like the Secret, and books like Think and Grow Rich. Haters of this concept don't believe in the philosophy of 'if it's to be; it's up to me' and personal growth- they believe in the 'it's not my responsibility to be successful, it's the governments, or a union, etc' to make things right. For those of us who DO believe in America and what it stands for, we need to relax from time to time, from our dedicated path to success. From time to time, I like to read a novel or two, to unwind, but there are so few are positive, uplifting, and compelling novels that also promote personal growth and success principles. So finding one or two is GREAT NEWS! However I have made a wonderful discover of a new and magnificently published selection of Horatio Alger books, so now we don't just have one or two, but many, many hours ahead of us to relax, recharge and at the same time instill in ourselves the success principles we all know and love! Cast upon the Breakers is truly inspiring! From poverty to wealth - its what we all want and want for those we love, and here, our hero faces worse odds than most of us would, from villains scammers, cheats, and more. The story read great, the novel and plot is wonderful, as Alger knows how to write well and keep his page turner on track, but what I really like best is how he interweaves HOW success happens, as will as WHY, and the METHODS used. Now don't think that just because this book was written 100 years ago its 'old' and out of date, its not, its like reading any book on personal development and full of great tips that are timeless and just as powerful today as they were when the book was first written.
