Extract of book:
Introduction by Joseph P. Kennedy
While enjoying a leisurely reading of Lord Beaverbrook’s volume of practical advice to young Englishmen, I was forcibly struck with the idea that young Americans would also enjoy the book. When I mentioned this to Lord Beaverbrook, he undertook a revision of the text and additions to it, which would make his message equally applicable to the United States. I know of no one better qualified to advise youth, and no one whose own story of success has greater appeal.
Born of humble circumstances in New Brunswick, Canada, Max Aitken (later to be Lord Beaverbrook) at an early age gave indications of his talent for trade. When he was ten, for instance, he very much wanted a
bicycle. But his chances of getting one seemed even smaller than his Presbyterian minister father’s salary, which was small indeed. Then one day a soap company offered a brand-new bicycle to the boy who turned in the greatest number of soap wrappers. Max immediately used his head—instead of simply pestering his neighbors to use more of the wrapper-bearing soap, he invested his small capital in whole cases of it.
He sold his stock at reduced prices—stipulating always that the wrappers be returned to him—and repeated the process time and again. Thus Max won the bike hands down and chalked up the first of his many business successes.
Subsequent applications of similar industry and good judgment were to bring him a fortune; international fame; knighthood, a baronetcy; houses in Surrey, Jamaica, Nassau, and Fredericton; an Ontario farm, a London penthouse; an imposing steel-and-black-glass Fleet Street office building; interests worth millions in many great enterprises; and the newspaper with one of the largest circulations in the world.
