In looking back over the more than forty years since I ﬁrst interviewed Andrew Carnegie, it is exceedingly difficult for me to select the men and women who have played the most important parts in the development of The Science of Success.
Andrew Carnegie has ﬁrst place on my list of those to whom I owe enduring gratitude, because it was he who originated the idea of giving to posterity the know how by which successful men have attained success, and it was he who sponsored my research when I was organizing the data which was needed for The Science of Success. Although Andrew Carnegie did not live to see the completion of the work he inspired, his influence goes on to beneﬁt millions of people not yet born. In preparing these lessons, I interviewed, visited and collaborated with more than 500 famous men and women who have boldly written their names across the pages of history. I wish to express my deepest admiration for the persons discussed on the following pages. They have impressed me more strongly than mere words can tell, and have contributed more to this work than I can state. I regret that I have had to limit my writing to the highlights of their illustrious careers.
There are many additional men and women of achievement whom I should have indeed liked to include, had my space not been so limited. Many of them gave generously of their time and experiences, revealing, in many instances for the ﬁrst time, the innermost secrets of their lives. To them I wish to express my undying gratitude, and I ask their kind consideration. I want personally to thank all who gave so much, who wished to pass their successes on to others so that no one who really wanted should do without that which he or she could have. May it always remain steadfast in. the hearts and minds of all who are here to read: Whatever the mind of man can CONCEIVE and BELIEVE, the mind of man can ACHIEVE!
Nature yields her most profound secrets to the person who is determined to uncover them.
