This can be thought of as one of the best precursors to today's self-help books. Books that arouse men to greater hope and spur them on to larger achievement, to self-conquest and the conquest of their particular little world are always welcome. Such a one is this volume of sixteen essays by William George Jordan, under the title Self-Control: Its Kingship and Majesty. These essays are full of such great profound wisdom and truth, presenting a high ideal of life, and abounding in wise and beautiful thoughts, showing what a person may make out of their life!
This is a timeless classic for those who seek self-improvement, success, happiness, creativity, self-reliance & discipline, and the wisdom and knowledge of how to go about it...
