A Message to Garcia: And Other Essential Writings on Success (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2009)

Elbert Hubbard was that rarest of beings–a philosophical businessman. In 1895 he founded the Roycrofters, a community of artisans selling handcrafted goods. A prolific author, he was a favorite of Henry Ford, Theodore Roosevelt, and other great leaders of his time.

A Message to Garcia is Hubbard’s most famous work. In it, he argues that the greatest hero is the man who simply does his job, completing the task no matter what the obstacles. Within Hubbard’s lifetime, the Message was reprinted more than any book besides the Bible.

This edition, compiled by Charles Conrad of SuccessBooks.net, also includes Hubbard’s essays on “Mental Attitude,” “Initiative,” “Ability,” and other qualities essential to success.

Elbert Hubbard was one of the most interesting American characters of his time. He had a rare faculty of expression and he used it to serve the cause of common sense in this country.”  Henry Ford
