Capstone classics series

The next item below is straight from Tom Butler-Bowdon himself. I have been conversing with Tom recently and he gave me permission to reproduce here some items from his resent newsletter.

Last year I began a project with John Wiley & Sons to produce a new series of older self-development and prosperity classics – see picture.
The idea was for me to write Introductions to these books to bring them up to date for the modern reader, showing why they are still relevant and powerful.

So far, the Capstone Classics series includes new editions of:

Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich
• Sun Tzu’s The Art of War
• Wallace Wattles’s The Science of Getting Rich
• Machiavelli’s The Prince and
• Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations

Each has Introductions of 4-5000 words that show why these books remain must-reads. Click on any of the links above and read a short blog.
Also have a look at a video on the series (just scroll down a bit on the page ’til you get to it).

Have a look at my revamped website It might not look very different to your last visit, but there’s 30 new free commentaries on the psychology classics and prosperity classics.
