Preface How This Book Was Written—and Why


In 1909,I was one of the unhappiest lads in New York.I was selling motor-trucks for a living.I didn\'t know what made a motor-truck run.That wasn\'t all:I didn\'t want to know.I despised my job.I despised living in a cheap furnished room on West Fifty-sixth Street—a room infested with cockroaches.I still remember that I had a bunch of neckties hanging on the walls;and when I reached out of a morning to get a fresh necktie,the cockroaches scattered in all directions.I despised having to eat in cheap,dirty restaurants that were also probably infested with cockroaches.


I came home to my lonely room each night with a sick headache—a headache bred and fed by disappointment,worry,bitterness,and rebellion.I was rebelling because the dreams I had nourished back in my college days had turned into nightmares.Was this life?Was this the vital adventure to which I had looked forward so eagerly?Was this all life would ever mean to me—working at a job I despised,living with cockroaches,eating vile food—and with no hope for the future?…… I longed for leisure to read,and to write the books I had dreamed of writing back in my college days.


I knew I had everything to gain and nothing to lose by giving up the job I despised.I wasn\'t interested in making a lot of money,but I was interested in making a lot of living.In short,I had come to the Rubicon—to that moment of decision which faces most young people when they start out in life.So I made my decision—and that decision completely alteredmy future.It has made the rest of my life happy and rewarding beyond my most utopian aspirations.


My decision was this:I would give up the work I loathed;and,since I had spent four years studying in the State Teachers\' College at Warrensburg,Missouri,preparing to teach,I would make my living teaching adult classes in night schools.Then I would have my days free to read books,prepare lectures,write novels and short stories.I wanted“to live to write and write to live”.


What subject should I teach to adults at night?As I looked back and evaluated my own college training,I saw that the training and experience I had had in public speaking had been of more practical value to me in business—and in life—than everything else I had studied in college all put together.Why?Because it had wiped out my timidity and lack of self-confdence and given me the courage and assurance to deal with people.It had also made clear that leadership usually gravitates to the man who can get up and say what he thinks.


I applied for a position teaching public speaking in the night extension courses both at Columbia University and New York University,but these universities decided they could struggle along somehow without my help.


I was disappointed then—but now I thank God that they did turn me down,because I started teaching in YMCA night schools,where I had to show concrete results and show them quickly.What a challenge that was!These adults didn\'t come to my classes because they wanted college credits or social prestige.They came for one reason only:they wanted to solve their problems.They wanted to be able to stand up on their feet and say a few words at a business meeting without fainting from fright.Salesmen wanted to be able to call on a tough customer without having to walk around the block three times to get up courage.They wanted todevelop poise and self-co
