Summary

Musaicum Books presents to you this carefully created volume of "The Greatest Works of Russell Conwell". This ebook has been designed and formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
The original inspiration for his most famous essay, "Acres of Diamonds", occurred in 1869 when Conwell was traveling in the Middle East. The central idea of the work is that one need not look elsewhere for opportunity, achievement, or fortune—the resources to achieve all good things are present in one's own community. This theme is developed by an introductory anecdote, credited by Conwell to an Arab guide, about a man who wanted to find diamonds so badly that he sold his property and went off in futile search for them. The new owner of his home discovered that a rich diamond mine was located right there on the property. Conwell elaborates on the theme through examples of success, genius, service, or other virtues involving ordinary Americans contemporary to his audience: "dig in your own backyard!". The book has been regarded as a classic of New Thought literature since the 1870s.
Russell Conwell (1843-1925) was an American Baptist minister, orator, philanthropist, lawyer, and writer. He is best remembered as the founder and first president of Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as the Pastor of The Baptist Temple, and for his inspirational lecture, Acres of Diamonds.

    Born under a bad sign? Of course you were, we all were. In this case Taurus the Bull, the zodiac’s intransigent stuff addict. Everyone knows their bright starry self, but the Darkside Zodiac reveals what you are like on the bad days. Not that it bothers you Taurus, as you know you are right anyway, and you don’t really notice other people, unless they look like they might move some of your stuff.
    What can you expect in this short, yet vitriol-packed e-volume? Prepare to break bad. Here’s the checklist  (partial - you think we give this stuff away?) 
    * Bitch factor? You got it. 
    Likewise
    * Annoying habits 
    * Deadly sin of choice 
    * Your love life. Hah. 
    * Your criminal career 
    * Your road rage
    
    Plus clever charts showing just how incompatible you are with everybody else in every conceivable aspect of life. Of course it’s not your fault. It never is. Find out which planet/s is/are responsible for your cosmic awfulness, and blame it/them. And you get to find out who famously shares your sector of the darkness, just so you have a role model if you begin to stray towards the light.  
    Until now only available to the discerning in tree-based form, the darkside has gone e-side so you can read all about your dark self without having to lift a finger to turn the page. Buy one for yourself (and wallow in delicious shame) or, even better, for your friends/enemies/frenemies/office nemesis and send it to them anonymously. That would be very darkside.
