I don't care how much or how little money you make-I want you to understand that there's only one place in the world where you can live a happy life, and that's inside your income. A family that's living beyond its means is simply a business that's losing money, and it's bound to go smash. -from "V: New York, December 8, 189-" Chicago pork magnate John Graham is a thorough success in business... except when it comes to his ne'er-do-well son Pierrepont, who never seems to need the end of his father's no-nonsense advice on being a boss, being a husband, and being a man. This delightful 1904 book-a sequel to Lorimer's 1901 Letters From a Self-Made Merchant to His Son-is ostensibly a work of fiction, taking the form of exasperated letters from Graham to his would-be protg, but it's still a genuine source of down-home counsel on how to hire family (carefully), how to drink on the job (don't), when to apologize to a wife (always), and more. American journalist GEORGE HORACE LORIMER (1867-1937) was editor in chief of the Saturday Evening Post from 1899 to 1936, leading the magazine to the heights of its popularity. He is also the author of False Gods (1906).

George Horace Lorimer's classic book of paternal advice is timeless for its lessons on conducting one's personal and professional life wisely, and to the very fullest. Letters from a Self-Made Merchant to His Son consists of twenty letters. In each, the father - John Graham - relays both news and crucial nuggets of advice to his soon-to-graduate son, Pierrepont. The hard-won lessons and experiences of life give rise to all manner of sound advice, with the author's aim being to prepare his son for the world of work that awaits him. The letters, while complete fiction, are written in a tone that suggests familiarity and a paternal bond. It is this sense of realism, combined with the father's plain spoken and honest thoughts, that makes this book shine. At times the writing is deceptively simple; only through reading and re-reading does the full gravity of the advice rendered become apparent.

"Putting off an easy thing makes it hard, and putting off a hard one makes it impossible." George Horace Lorimer was an American journalist and author best known as the editor of The Saturday Evening Post. During his editorial reign, the Post rose from a circulation of several thousand to over a million. He is credited with promoting or discovering a large number of American writers like Jack London. Lorimer's Letters From A Self-Made Merchant To His Son is a timeless collection of Gilded Age aphorisms from a rich man - a prosperous pork-packer in Chicago to his son, Pierrepont, whom he 'affectionately' calls 'Piggy.' The writing is subtle and brilliant. This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the original. Due to its age, it may contain imperfections such as marks, notations, marginalia and flawed pages. Because we believe this work is culturally important, we have made it available as part of our commitment for protecting, preserving, and promoting the world's literature in affordable, high quality, modern editions that are true to the original work.

The acclaimed Pulitzer Prize winning biographer of Mark Twain and Walt Whitman brings alive the life and world of Lincoln Steffens, the original Muckraker and father of American investigative journalism. Early 20th century America was a nation in the throes of becoming a great industrial power, a land dominated by big business and beset by social struggle and political corruption. It was the era of Sinclair Lewis, Emma Goldman, William Randolph Hearst, and John Reed. It was a time of union busting, anarchism, and Tammany Hall. Lincoln Steffens—eternally curious, a worldwide celebrity, and a man of magnetic charm—was a towering figure at the center of this world. He was friends with everyone from Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson to Ernest Hemingway and James Joyce. As an editor at McClure’s magazine—along with Ida Tarbell he was one of the original muckrakers—he published articles that exposed the political and social corruption of the time. His book, Shame of the Cities, took on the corruption of local politics and his coverage of bad business practices on Wall Street helped lead to the creation of the Federal Reserve. Lincoln Steffens was truly a man of his season, and his life reflects his times: impetuous, vital, creative, striving. In telling the story of this outsized American figure, Justin Kaplan also tells the riveting tale of turn-of-the-century America.

Edward William Bok was the most famous Dutch-American in early twentieth-century America thanks to his thirty-year editorship of the Ladies' Home Journal, the most prestigious women's magazine of the day. This first complete coverage of Edward Bok's life places him against his ethnic background and portrays him as the spokesman for and the molder of the American middle class between 1890 and 1930. He acted as a mediator between a Victorian and a modern society, reconciling consumerism with idealism. As a Dutch immigrant he became a model for successful adaptation to a new country and modern times. He used his national reputation to restore America's internationalism in the 1920s. His life story is relevant to those interested in the history of immigration, journalism, the rise of big business, the women's movement, and the Progressive Movement.

We live in an age of persuasion. Leaders and institutions of every kind--public and private, large and small--must compete in the marketplace of images and messages. This has been true since the advent of mass media, from broad circulation magazines and radio through the age of television and the internet. Yet there have been very few true geniuses at the art of mass persuasion in the last century. In public relations, Edward Bernays comes to mind. In advertising, most Hall-of-Famers--J. Walter Thomson, David Ogilvy, Bill Bernbach, Bruce Barton, Ray Rubicam, and others--point to one individual as the "father" of modern advertising: Albert D. Lasker. And yet Lasker--unlike Bernays, Thomson, Ogilvy, and the others--remains an enigma. Now, Jeffrey Cruikshank and Arthur Schultz, having uncovered a treasure trove of Lasker's papers, have written a fascinating and revealing biography of one of the 20th century's most powerful, intriguing, and instructive figures. It is no exaggeration to say that Lasker created modern advertising. He was the first influential proponent of "reason why" advertising, a consumer-centered approach that skillfully melded form and content and a precursor to the "unique selling proposition" approach that today dominates the industry. More than that, he was a prominent political figure, champion of civil rights, man of extreme wealth and hobnobber with kings and maharajahs, as well as with the likes of Albert Einstein and Eleanor Roosevelt. He was also a deeply troubled man, who suffered mental collapses throughout his adult life, though was able fight through and continue his amazing creative and productive activities into later life. This is the story of a man who shaped an industry, and in many ways, shaped a century.
