This stirring manifesto shows how to discover everything you need to succeed? where you least expect it.

So begins one of the most famous speeches of the twentieth century, a talk that educator and minister Russell H. Conwell delivered before literally thousands of audiences before his death in 1925. In its printed version Acres of Diamonds reached millions of readers around the world. Conwell?s great manifesto imparts one extraordinary lesson: All the wealth you could ever dream of, search for, or yearn after?in whatever form you wish for?exists right beneath your own feet. It is a message of determination, unconventional thinking, and positive living that came to influence a generation of motivational literature.

The Success Classics edition of Acres of Diamonds also features two rare bonus works: Praying for Money and The Story of ?Acres of Diamonds? by journalist Robert Shackleton.
