Description
Ever since the story of his transformation from homeless, single and struggling father to millionaire became known the world over, Chris Gardner - whose life story both inspired the movie "The Pursuit of Happyness" and became a number 1 "New York Times" Bestseller by the same name - has been inundated with two questions: 'How Did You Do It' and 'How Can I Do it Too?' Gardner's power-packed, transformational reply is the basis of this long-anticipated book. As a departure from standard self-help tomes that promise overnight riches and exclusive secrets for success, Gardner avoids any tilt toward magical thinking by staying with real issues and solutions impacting individuals in all walks of life. Taking stock of his own credos, including 'The Cavalry Ain't Coming', 'Find Your Button', and 'Seek the Furthest Star' - Gardner's 44 life lessons are earthy, soulful, and always accessible. With an array of stories from the author's own life, as well as from those he has known or admired, both famous and not.From the Compact Disc edition.
