Summary

Elbert Hubbard was that rarest of beings - a philosophical businessman. In 1895 he founded the Roycrofters, a community of artisans selling handcrafted goods. A prolific author, he was a favorite of Henry Ford, Theodore Roosevelt, and other great leaders of his time.
A Message to Garcia is Hubbard's most famous work. In it, he argues that the greatest hero is the man who simply does his job, completing the task no matter what the obstacles. Within Hubbard's lifetime, the message was reprinted more than any book besides the Bible. Today, it is required reading at US military academies.
This volume includes an introduction by Hubbard's personal assistant, Felix Shay, plus Hubbard's essays on "Mental Attitude", "Initiative", "Ability", and other qualities essential to success, making this the best available edition of the book.

A motivational masterpiece for the ages

At moments his advice slips into idealistic righteousness, but Hubbard's words are nevertheless so illuminating and timeless that you would believe they were written ten years ago. Everyone should read and reread this book, from the tender child to the jaded elder.

Overrated.

Listen to the podcast, “Successful Dropout”. Simply: Be confident. Be assertive. Be willing to think and do. Be bold.
