About the Books
In his book “Eight Pillars of Prosperity”, first published in 1911, he explains his belief that prosperity rests upon a moral foundation, one grounded by the pillars of Energy, Economy, Integrity, System, Sympathy, Sincerity, Impartiality, and Self-Reliance. In illuminating these principles, Allen hoped to contribute to the prosperity of the mass of mankind. “A business built up on the faultless practice of all these principles,” Allen writes, “would be so firm and enduring as to be invincible. Nothing could injure it; nothing could undermine its prosperity, nothing could interrupt its success.” This is a “Book of Virtues” for adults, distilling the wisdom of the ages in one compact volume. If worldly success continues to elude you, then this may be the book for you.
