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.

see-a-chance-to-land-on-the-solar-plexus style of the trained athlete. Both styles win fights, but the fellow with a little science is the better man, providing he's kept his muscle hard. If he hasn't, he's in a bad way, for his fancy sparring is just going to aggravate the other fellow so that he'll eat him up.

"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.
