    What a splendid collection of moral and financial "diamonds." This book transcends is original time of delivery and speaks to everyone from its conception henceforth. Whether in business or everyday life, the reader can glean some enlightened view of his current situation and learn to make great the stock he or she currently has. We all possess greatness and need to tap into its inner wealth.

    Reading this eloquently presented book reveals why so many of us fail and why so few achieve great heights. It also reveals how all of us can achieve if we are willing to do the work, have common sense and fill a need. Connoly gives excellent examples to drive his point home. This is the ultimate motivator to bring people to know, male or female, that they can do great things right where they are. I loved the examples of all of the inventions by women that were subsequently credited to a man. Amazing!.
