The Little House Books

Most all kids read The Little House Books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Some still are not aware she was a real person and not just made up. Her books were written between 1931 and 1943. Her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane was also a writer. . The Little House books were even banned once because of racism. I 200, CBS aired a move called "Beyond the Prairie": The Real Life of Laura Ingalls Wilder" and a sequel in 2002. There are vast differences in her actual life and the books. The books are classified historical fiction since the stories are based on Wilder's life.

Some characters were a combination of people she knew. There was a Nellie but her last name was Owens and her family really owned a general store and she had a brother named Willie. The parents were Margaret and William. Laura changed the name to Olsen in the books. It is believed the Nellie character in the book was also based on two other girls Genevieve  Masterson and Stella Gilbert. Laura did not get along with Genevieve and Stella was a girl who went riding with her and Almanzo . Carries' birthplace was Kansas and not the Big Woods. The little brother that died is not mentioned in the books because she thought it too harsh for children. Anyway, the books are still enjoyed though she left out many details..

The Letter Writer

I Loved reading this book. The characters were depicted first-rate. Jack, a multimillionaire who goes through mid-life crisis and finishes encountering significance to his life – but it costs him millions of dollars and emotional anguish. Adele is a heavy-drinking, independent, multimillionaire with an autonomous head and a sense of humor. Wendy, a single mother who discovers the love of her life. Baffled educators diddling with their pupils’ lives in their conquest and the retiring professor who defies this secret plan has a heavy secret. A married consultant continues an affair with another man and when he is found out, he believes his world has stopped.
I would allege this fable is a clean comedy that is rather amusing and has a few romance components likewise. Author Robert Mercer-Nairne brings attention to basic human vices with a sense of play. He distinctly discloses the desire to ‘get rich fast’ in North American Society. Members of this order incline to hear what we prefer to hear and perceive the greener grazing land out there somewhere – instead of in the present moment.
Readers are presented the craziness of pursuing others blindly and the risk of where our covetousness can carry us. Innocents can have their life irrevocable changed by another persons desire to climb a corporate or societal ladder. The benefit of spiritual leaders to help anchor the characters in this novel, helping them learn to forgive themselves and move on in life is used at several aims in the chronicle.
I advocate this book for anyone looking for a light, entertaining read.

The Science of Getting Rich

The Science of Getting Rich

Self-improvement is a popular category of books. The most popular sub-categories are money and wealth creation. However, a few of these books stand out among the rest because they are unique.. One of them is the “Science of Getting Rich” by Wallace D. Whattles published in the 1920’s. This book may be almost  a hundred years old but contains some useful concepts for today. The title makes it seem like science is needed for wealth creation that maybe comparable to advanced physics. Therefore, many people would assume the same principles can guide them to achieve wealth.  This assumption presumes the reader grabs the techniques and ignores rhetoric. Furthermore, the reader believes they will for certain create wealth by following these scientific laws.

Wallace D.Whattles wrote the book as the Enlightenment period gradually changed to Modernism. This explains why a great deal of similar books  on wealth creation were founded on Modernism which means being certain one can accomplish wealth if they have a focus and do all they can to achieve it. During this time people worked through shortcomings to make things right.Modern welath creation books are about leverage  while The Science of Getting Rich focuses on creative aspects.

Bringing Together the Craft and Science of Wealth Building

Though the book alleges certainty, it can actually be classified as philosophical work. Wattles discusses  the importance of a unified theory that is part of Hindu beliefs gradually coming into the Western world. The main concepts behind wealth creation now  are embedded  in the universal system. Whattles believes we all have a right to get wealthy in the system  and gives the basis to help accomplish the right. Whattles describes the Science of Getting Rich as the growth of life and development of mankind. A person should have a positive outlook about wealth creation as their right.
