How to be a
Man or Woman
of Achievement

I came to a point in my life when I was more or less successful, but still not the man I wanted to be.

I began reading this book – one chapter each morning – and it changed the way I saw myself. Step for step, I began to change.

Here are some things the book covers:
– Luck and how to get it;
– How not to act the fool;
– How to discern friends from enemies;
– Persistence, style, charm, focus, priorities, service, values, goals, performance, success, achievement, excellence;

If you are a man or woman in search of excellence, achievement and success – you need to read this book.

Tis book changed my life. It will change yours.

The Thoughtfully
Modernized
Edition

I believe everyone should read this book.

It is the world’s first great self-improvement book, written by a philosopher and Jesuit priest of 17th century Spain named Baltasar Gracian.

When it came to how you have to behave to be successful, Gracian hit the nail on the head – and every word is as true today as it was 400 years ago.

The problem is the translations.

There are a lot of excellent translations out there, but they all transport Gracian’s baroque style into English with the translation – beautiful and elegant, yes, but also convoluted. I find myself rereading sentence after sentence to get what he is saying.

In addition, there are a few anachronisms: For example, Gracian speaks only to “men.”

I solved the problem.

I took an older, classic translation and re-edited it for simplicity and clarity:

My “Thoughtfully Modernized Edition” is easier to read and a bit more modern in the sense that I replaced “men” with “men and women” and explained a few outdated cultural references.

Now, the modern reader doesn’t have to reread every third sentence to figure out the meaning – and yet the prose is still as elegant and beautiful as ever.

To make this book accessible to everyone, I am going to publish it as print book, e-book, audiobook and as a video series on YouTube and Vimeo.com/HulaInk (my premium channel).

Read this book. I changed my life and it will change ours.
