If you have not read this, you should: "Letters from a Self Made Merchant Man to his Son"  by George Horace Lorimer.

Craig Mee writes:

I simply mention Stan in passing as an example of the fact that it isn’t so much knowing a whole lot, as knowing a little and how to use it that counts.

Oh, how I have learned this the hard way. As an old squadron commander told me in my 20s, “You get a whole lot more bees with honey than you do with vinegar, young man.” Great advice, and I am happy to say I am finally following it many years later.

    The comment about playing the hose on the meats was priceless. More such interesting books can be found at Jeff Watson’s blog, Master of the Universe.

    I’ve also found some useful market lessons in Pammachon by Kostas Dervenis. A free copy can be found here:
