    • Think and Grow Rich Full Book Summary

      More Content On Bookey Book Summary Website.

      Think and Grow Rich teaches us that for millions of people, desire can be the driver of success. Anyone interested in following this path to success must take a few straightforward steps. To start, of course, we must have a strong desire. With this yearning, we can affect the subconscious mind through autosuggestion . The subconscious mind reinforces our faith and confidence. It plants a seed. In time, it germinates, and a plan arises. What follows is action without a doubt. The method fully exploits the subconscious mind. It becomes a "middleman" that transforms desires into tangible effects. Through this process, you will realize that just thinking in the right way can make you rich.

      Overview | Chapter 1

      Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today we will unlock the book Think and Grow Rich.

      One day, in the early years of the 20th century, in Orange, New Jersey, United States, a visitor came into Thomas A. Edison's office. The guest looked a bit like a homeless person being worn out after a long and arduous journey. He introduced himself as Edwin C. Barnes. He expressed his long-standing wish to be Edison's business partner.

      Edison later recalled that something on Barnes' face conveyed determination. He was someone who would not give up until he achieved his goal. From his previous experience of dealing with people, Edison had learned that when someone's desire was so forceful that they would stake their entire future on their success?they were bound to succeed.

      Edison allowed Barnes to stay, but only as a peon and not as a business partner. Nevertheless, Barnes didn't reckon that his work was unskilled; instead, he held himself to lofty standards. And a few years later, he finally got his wish. He became Edison's true business partner and found himself working in the same room he had blundered into when he first met Edison.

      This is the story at the start of Think and Grow Rich. The anecdote tells us that a person's success is a function of their desire. The more intense their desire, the surer their success.

      How strong was Barnes' passion for success? When he was determined to become Edison's business partner, he didn't know this famous scientist, nor did he have the money to travel to the city where he was working. Facing these two difficulties, most people might have already given up their plans. But not Barnes. His desire was so strong that he climbed on a freight train to reach the destination and finally stood before Edison. When you build up determination, you can overcome any seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

      Think and Grow Rich is a book about effective thinking. It could be described as a book about the passion for success. In the title, the word "rich" has multiple connotations. Beyond wealth and financial success, these riches also include spiritual, mental, and bodily estates. Since it was first published in 1937, the book has sold more than 70 million copies worldwide and has influenced the paths of countless lives. The book's author, Napoleon Hill, was a pioneering motivational expert seeking to identify the principles of success. As the work's first edition has now become dated, it was edited and revised in 2004 by Arthur R. Pell, who has a Ph.D. in Philosophy. He replaced some outdated stories and anecdotes with more contemporary examples. The book, in its updated version, is now widely available and remains enduringly popular.

    • The Little Prince Full Book Summary

      More Content On Bookey Book Summary Website.

      The Little Prince is a children’s story that touches even the adults’ hearts, as the author said, “All grown-ups were once children.” From the point of view of a pilot, the book recounts the journey of a young prince who travels to Earth from an alien planet. The irony, fantasy, truth, and philosophy embedded in the story have made it one of the most famous children’s books in France and later across the world. It is hailed as one of the most read books after the Bible.

      Overview | Chapter 1

      Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today we will unlock the book The Little Prince.

      In the 1940s, World War II swept the world. It brought not only chaos, but also spiritual decline. German philosopher Martin Heidegger described the era as “the destitute time” and “the time of world’s night”. When the darkness descended upon the people in the turbulent age, how should they free themselves from the difficult circumstances? Famous French writer and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry gave his answer in The Little Prince.

      Both a writer and a pilot, Saint-Exupéry was not the first who wrote about aviation, but he was the first author to explore life and civilization through aviation. In his works, Saint-Exupéry was committed to re-explore spiritual life, which he believed was above intelligence and in line with human needs; it would guide people in their journey of self-discovery and lead to their true essence. In the wake of the war, people, devastated, craved warmth and wisdom to comfort the anguish and vulnerability of their souls. It was where The Little Prince came in. To this day, this book still serves the purpose as the author wished: to nourish people’s souls. It is a timeless story that remains a solace to us all.

    • The Old Man and the Sea Full Book Summary

      More Content On Bookey Book Summary Website.

      The old fisherman Santiago ventures to the deep seas to fish. A marlin that is two feet longer than his boat gets caught on his fishing hook. After a stalemate spanning two days and two nights, the old man finally captures the fish. However, on his return trip, he encounters countless attacks from schools of sharks. Although he fights them with all his might, he is still unable to protect the marlin that he caught. The sharks devour it until only the skeleton remains, and in the end, the old man returns home empty-handed.

      Overview | Chapter 1

      Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today we will unlock The Old Man and the Sea for you. This is one of the best-known works by acclaimed 20th-century American writer Ernest Hemingway.

      Hemingway was born in 1899, in Oak Park, Chicago. During his life, he fought in both World Wars as well as the Spanish Civil War, which inflicted tremendous damage on him both physically and psychologically. The wars opened his eyes to a world filled with violence and bloodshed, giving him a bleak and pessimistic world view. Following the First World War, the works of several American writers depicted characters who are empty, confused, and unable to find their sense of purpose or direction in life, and thus become profoundly dissatisfied with society. These writers have been collectively referred to as the ?Lost Generation,? among whom Hemingway was a key representative.

      Published in 1952, The Old Man and the Sea tells the story of an old fisherman in Cuba who, after heading out to fish in the deep sea for three days and three nights, returns home empty-handed. The novel is based on real people and events ? the protagonist Santiago is modeled after Hemingway?s friend, a fisherman named Gregorio Fuentes. They met in 1928, when Fuentes was fishing at sea; he rescued Hemingway, who had been trapped in a storm. From then on, the pair became close friends. Hemingway lived in Cuba for many years, and during this time, he often went on fishing trips with Fluentes. Their encounter provided Hemingway with plenty of material for his writing, and the plot of this novel was, in fact, inspired by Fuentes?s adventures at sea. Once, Fluentes caught a large fish, but he was attacked by sharks while returning to shore, and only managed to bring back the skeletal remains. Fuentes?s experience moved Hemingway greatly, and in 1936, the latter published an article in a magazine detailing it. After the Christmas of 1950, Hemingway began to write The Old Man and the Sea while still living in Cuba. It only took him eight weeks to finish the first draft.

      The novel met with great success after its publication, and Hemingway received the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 and the Nobel Prize in 1954. Although the story is relatively short and the plot is simple, it is very rich in meaning and arguably the best work from his later years, the culmination of a lifetime of contemplation and artistic exploration. Hemingway once said, ?This is the prose that I have been working for all my life that should read easily and simply and seem short and yet have all the dimensions of the visible world and the world of a man?s spirit. It is as good prose as I can write as of now.?

      Fellow American author William Faulkner once said, ?The Old Man and the Sea is his best. Time may show it to be the best single piece of any of us, I mean his and my contemporaries.?

      The 48 Laws of Power Book Notes

      More Content On Bookey Book Summary App

      Looking back on human history, you will find that there has been no time in which people did not play games of power. The real world is complicated and we often have wonderful aspirations which are out of our reach. Rather than passively respond to complex situations, we should proactively study the laws of power. This book analyses a large number of case studies of successes and failures, and summarizes 48 laws of success to help us take the initiative and develop our abilities for when we find ourselves in complicated situations.

      Overview | Chapter 1

      Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today we will unlock the book The 48 Laws of Power.

      Many people see power as a subject that refers to political tactics, which has nothing to do with them. As long as we are honest with others and stay away from political games, then surely we can avoid power struggles. But in fact, this is just a naïve and fanciful way of thinking.

      Niccolò Machiavelli, the Italian political thinker and author of The Prince, once said: “Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good.” In human society the game of power is always being played, from grand political schemes to various struggles in our personal lives. Everybody lives in a game of power, playing either an active role or a passive role, and none of us can avoid it.

      Some people believe that playing power games is insidious and immoral, and yet power has nothing to do with morality. Power is a concept that goes beyond ethics; it is the skill and ability to perceive changes in the situation and to make decisions based on objective reality and desired results rather than on the moral intentions of the opponent.

      Human nature is complex. People have a civilized and noble side, but they have a cunning and dark side, too. In order to reach their goals, people often use all kinds of ways to camouflage and conceal. How should we protect ourselves from being confused or used by others? How can we clearly see the real motivations behind their actions through so many layers of fog? How can we make correct decisions? This book shows us how we can have our own strength in the struggle for power.

      The authors of this book are American author Robert Greene and publisher Joost Elffers. Robert is a freelance writer as well as an editor and script writer. To write The 48 Laws of Power, he quit his job and plunged into a sea of literature, reading over 200 books and collecting a huge amount of historical material spanning more than 3000 years. He analyzed a great number of historical cases of failures and successes, and from this, he concluded the 48 laws of power and set forth his idea of the principles and rules of power.

      The power described in this book doesn’t just refer to political tactics but to more general concepts too, and can be understood as a kind of control and manipulation. Of course, here we also need to remind you that the values and morality of “obtaining power is the ultimate goal” described in the book are a little skewed, so we should look at them with a critical eye. However, the laws of power unlocked in this book contain insights which are profound and thought-provoking.

      Of Mice and Men Book Notes

      More Content On Bookey Book Summary App

      This is a story about promises, loneliness, hope, and loss. The protagonists, George and Lennie, have a dream. They hope to, one day, own a small plot of land so they can grow their own vegetables, raise rabbits, and finally become self-sufficient enough to build a stable home. However, their attempts to save money by working as ranchers are thwarted time and again because of Lennie?s unintentional mistakes, causing them to hop from ranch to ranch.Just as they are about to realize their goal, their dream is completely shattered.

      Overview | Chapter 1

      Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today we will unlock the book Of Mice and Men.

      Of Mice and Men is one of Steinbeck?s masterpieces that reflect his ability to accurately transform social perceptions into narratives. It tells the story of how the protagonists George and Lennie attempt to pursue their ?dream of land? only for it to end in failure. This widely acclaimed book is one of the ten most-read classics in American education. In the beginning of the century, British readers have nominated Of Mice and Men as one of the top 100 best-loved novels in the United Kingdom.

      The title, Of Mice and Men, was inspired by the poem ?To a Mouse? by the Scottish poet Robert Burns. A famous line in the poem reads: ?The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.? This line can be used to describe the fate of the novel?s main characters - George and Lennie?s fate in the novel: no matter how hard they work and how carefully they act, their hope of saving up always falls through because of Lennie?s innocent mistakes. They are forced to be constantly on the run, drifting from place to place until an irreparable mistake, causing their dream to be completely shattered.

      Of Mice and Men was written in the United States in the 1930s. Today?s society is very different and the contextual background of that time have changed a lot. Some of the problems described in the book have disappeared on account of worldwide economic development and critical societal changes. So, why is this novel still acclaimed by people all over the world? Although some specific social issues may be different nowadays, the living conditions of the lower-class characters reflected in the plot of the book still resonate with many people. Steinbeck?s Nobel Prize motivation states that he won the accolade ?for his realistic and imaginative writings, combining as they do sympathetic humor and keen social perception.?

      After all, what is this story all about? How did the two protagonists? ?dream of land? fall into ruins? What kind of living conditions are reflected in this narrative? And why has it received so well from different audiences?

      Jane Eyre Book Notes

      More Content On Bookey Book Summary App

      This novel is a masterpiece of 19th-Century British author Charlotte Bronte. The book tells the story of how Jane Eyre, an orphan girl born of humble origins and ordinary appearance, grew into a strong, independent and self-possessed woman after going through much hardship and fighting against oppression and injustice, thus finally achieving happiness for herself. The novel is an homage to feminist ideals which affirm individual human rights, and successfully created one of the most classic feminist characters in the history of British literature ? Jane Eyre.

      Overview | Chapter 1

      Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today we will unlock the book Jane Eyre?the masterpiece of renowned British author Charlotte Bronte.

      Charlotte Bronte was born into the family of a village pastor in England in 1816. She was the third child of six, having two elder sisters, two younger sisters and a younger brother. Charlotte?s two younger sisters, Emily Bronte and Anne Bronte, were as passionate about writing as she was, and all three of them made their lasting contributions to British literature. Under the pseudonym Currer Bell, Charlotte published Jane Eyre in 1847, which made waves throughout literary circles and secured her worldwide recognition.

      The book tells the story of how Jane Eyre, an orphan girl born of humble origins and an ordinary appearance, grew into a strong, independent and self-possessed woman after going through much hardship and fighting against oppression and injustice, thus finally achieving happiness for herself. Orphaned after the death of her parents at a young age, Jane lived for a time under her aunt?s roof, where she endured much bullying and oppression, before spending eight tumultuous years in an orphanage. That notwithstanding, Jane Eyre did not give up on herself, even after leading a lonely life without anyone to rely on ? she continuously resisted oppression and fought tenaciously against her fate in order to pursue an independent and autonomous life, a life of freedom and equality, and finally succeeded in achieving an ideal love and living the life of her dreams.

      The novel was written in mid-19th Century during the Victorian era in England. At the time, it was a patriarchal society, and women faced oppression on many fronts. Once, when Charlotte was 20 years old, she sent several short poems that she wrote to Robert Southey, a great English poet at the time, in hopes of receiving his commendation and encouragement. Yet in his letter Southey merely gave her a brusque reply, stating that "Literature is not the business of a woman and it cannot be.? Southey?s letter dealt Charlotte a huge blow, but she did not abandon her literary ambitions there and then. In order to ensure the successful publication of Jane Eyre, Charlotte used the male pseudonym Currer Bell ? this went to prove how difficult the path to a career in the literary arts was for women at the time. Against such a societal backdrop, the feminist themes of courageous resistance, pursuit of equality and defence of women?s rights as conveyed in the book were extremely rare and valuable and played a significant role in promoting the contemporaneous liberation of women.

    • The Richest Man in Babylon Book Notes

      More Content On Bookey Book Summary App

      Babylon, one of the four ancient civilizations, was a wealthy nation with countless gold and jewels but with limited natural resources. Its brilliance was entirely the result of human wisdom. The Richest Man in Babylon introduces ancient wisdom from 5,000 years ago and reveals how Babylon got rich. You will become enlightened about wealth and understand its most fundamental laws. These oldest and most effective laws of wealth can guide you from being penniless to success and happiness.

      Overview | Chapter 1

      Hi, welcome to Bookey. The book we are unlocking today is The Richest Man in Babylon.In the annals of history, Babylon was no doubt a shining star. It had gold and jewels in abundance, and rich people could be found everywhere. You may think the wealth was due to its natural advantages, just as the wealth of the United Arab Emirates is related to its oil abundance today. On the contrary, Babylon was situated in a barren, arid valley near the Euphrates. The natural environment was extremely harsh. There was nothing of value, and it was not along any of the main trade route. Many wealthy Babylonians were not born rich, and Babylon's success was not a gift from heaven. The success was the result of the hard work based on the wisdom of the Babylonians through generations.As Babylonians, their priority was to learn how to become wealthy. The king of Babylon once ordered the establishment of a lecture hall that could hold 100 people, so that the richest man in Babylon, Arkad, could teach people the secrets of getting rich. Arkad shared all the lessons learned over the years and asked those in the lecture hall to pass those lessons on to others.Good things never go out of style, and these self-made ways of making money still work in today?s world. In 1934, a couple of archaeology professors at the University of Nottingham translated the cuneiform script on five unearthed Babylonian clay tablets. By doing so, they learned the astonishing secret of how an ancient Babylonian slave paid off his debts. They tried out the method written on these tablets, and they not only paid off old debts, but also accumulated a considerable amount of savings. This ancient wisdom we just mentioned came from The Richest Man in Babylon. The book uses fables to narrate the path to success from some of Babylon?s super-rich.The author of this book, George S. Clason, was a famous American businessman and writer in the 20th century. He once published the first road atlas of the United States and Canada, and had quite deep experience in the publishing industry. He was also a master of wealth management, known as the pioneer of modern wealth management education. Starting in 1926, Clason published a series of wealth management pamphlets, using ancient Babylonian fables to illustrate his views. The pamphlets caused a stir in the banking industry and the insurance industry. They soon became familiar to millions of people, and were later published together in the book, The Richest Man in Babylon. The book has been translated into many languages and still sells well today.
