Pushing to the Front –by: Orison Swett Marden


Published in 1894, this is the first book by the renowned inspirational author, Dr. Orison Swett Marden. Pushing to the Front is the product of many years of hard work, and marks a turning point in the life of Dr. Marden. He rewrote it following an accidental fire that brought the five-thousand-plus page manuscript to flames. It went on to become the most popular personal-development book of its time, and is a timeless classic in its genre. Filled with stories of success, triumph and the surmounting of difficulties, it is especially well-targeted at the adolescent or young adult...

Caspar Hauser oder die Traegheit des Herzens –by: Jakob Wassermann

Ein Roman über den berühmten Findling Kaspar Hauser (angeblich: 30.4.1812 - 17. 12. 1833 in Ansbach) wurde in der Biedermeierzeit als r"atselhafter Findling bekannt. Hauser taucht am 26. Mai 1828 in Nürnberg als etwa 16-j"ahriger, geistig anscheinend zurückgebliebener und wenig redender Jugendlicher auf. Durch seine Aussagen, dass er, solange er denken k"onne, bei Wasser und Brot immer ganz allein in einem dunklen Raum gefangen gehalten worden sei, erregt er grosses Aufsehen. Ein Gerücht kolportierte, Hauser sei der 1812 geborene Erbprinz von Baden, den man gegen einen sterbenden S"auglin...

How to Analyze People on Sight Through the Science of Human Analysis: The Five Human Types

In this popular American book from the 1920s, accomplished public speaker and self-help charlatan Elsie Lincoln Benedict outlines her pseudo-scientific system of "Human Analysis". She proposes that, within the human race, five sub-types have developed through evolutionary processes, each with its own distinct character traits and corresponding outward appearance. She offers to teach the reader how to recognise these five types of people and understand their innate differences. Her ideas have never been taken seriously by the scientific community, but this book is considered a classic within it...
