Description


"The worst day in a man's life is when he sits down and begins thinking about how he can get something for nothing."--Thomas Jefferson. The United States of America is the greatest country in the world, and perhaps in all of history. Americans are the most generous people on earth. They give more money to help others than all the countries of the world put together. America takes in more immigrants each year than all other countries. America produces 25% of all the goods and services in the world with only 5% of the population. America is the most powerful country on earth militarily, and the only country that has never sought to expand by conquest and imperialism. And yet today, America is in great danger of losing its moral, ethical and political bearings than at any other time. In the headlong rush to get something for nothing, America is becoming a national "grabbing match" where everyone is trying to get money and benefits at the expense of everyone else. In this block-busting book, Brian Tracy explains, step-by-step how we got into this financial fantasyland, and how we can get out--starting today.
