The Book in Three Sentences This book is a series of letters written by a successful entrepreneur, John Graham, to his son offering various pieces of advice throughout the boy's college years and early career. For example, 1) It isn't so much knowing a whole lot, as knowing a little and how to use it that counts. 2) Putting off an easy thing makes it hard, and putting off a hard one makes it impossible. 3) A good wife doubles a man's expenses and doubles his happiness, and that's a pretty good investment if a fellow's got the money to invest. And many other insights. (jamesclear.com)

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.
