Acres of Diamonds

by Russell H. Conwell

I couldn't read more than a few pages, it seemed to me a eulogy of the modern Western culture whereby people are judged by what they have. So if you are successful, you deserve it (and can keep the proceeds without conscience, while feeling annoyed about having to pay taxes), and if you are not successful then it is you to blame, not society which failed you in any way. This encourages selfishness and intolerance, which I think we have quite enough of in our society.

Quite apart from the moral note, I also dislike his tone which is judgemental, polemic and ultimately unkind. Not my thing at all.
