What you need and what you rightly demand of us are directions as to just how to proceed in your own case. It is quite in vogue with men who have made their "pile" to point the road for success to others. But the one and obvious fault with their invariable prescription of industry, frugality and temperance is that they furnish no information as how to fill the prescription. In this book we point out the general principles underlying scientific methods, and follow them up with specific rules and directions. Two difficulties confront us in our endeavor to instruct you in a rational system for increased individual efficiency through mental means. One is the supposed simplicity of mental processes. The other is their supposed complexity"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved).
