Thomas Carlyle said, Great men taken up in any way are very profitable company, for we cannot so much as look upon a great man without gaining something from him. Lessons from Great Lives will introduce you to brilliant thinkers, powerful leaders, and colorful speakers, heroes of battle, skilled artisans, persevering scientists, and inspired prophets. It is as though each one of them has engraved in gold a statement for us to see saying, This is the best of me. This is the greatest of what I saw, knew, believed, and did during my lifetime. If anything of mine is worth your memorizing and remembering, this is it. After years of intense study of the greatest minds that ever lived, Sterling W. Sill left us over 7,500 pages of notes and ideas on how to live a better life. He possessed a rare gift for simplifying and organizing huge amounts of facts which he then wrote in story form. These short stories provide indispensable illumination of the path each of us should take in order to open doors to new horizons of thought and action that can make us rich in all areas of our lives. Lessons from Great Lives is more than a book about great people; it s about knowledge, attitude, skills, habits and personality. This new edition has been revised and updated by Dan McCormick, a hugely successful entrepreneur who has witnessed the field of personal motivation and development turn its focus from traditional values to a desire for urgent riches at all costs. Ordinary men and women can become extraordinary, but not by using the latest magic formula for success concocted by self-proclaimed experts. The people whose lives are described here for your benefit commanded great armies, conquered empires, sacrificed their own lives in the pursuit of truth, and overcame obstacles of extreme magnitude. The purity of their wisdom has stood the test of time and is needed now more than at any other time in history. It may be the book that opens a field of intellectual activity and accomplishment undreamed of.

Sterling W. Sill: A prolific author of over 30 books on personal development, training and motivation, Sterling W. Sill rose to great heights of success as an agent for New York Life Insurance Company. For the better part of forty years, he consistently set sales records and achieved the highest lifetime recruiting statistics in the entire company. Sill was unequaled as a recruiter, trainer, and motivator, but most importantly, he was admired and loved by all of his associates. For seventeen years he spoke on a weekly radio program that was carried by 370 stations. He taught principles of success gleaned from reading more than a thousand of the world s most treasured books. Reading, he said, allows us to profit from any great man s life without its risk. As a successful business man, civic and church leader, educator, speaker and writer, Sill embodied admirable characteristics of the greatest who ever lived. As a result, he touched the lives of everyone he met.
Dan McCormick: In 1984 at the age of 22, Dan McCormick and his wife, Marilyn, earned their first million dollars through direct sales. Since that time, Dan has propelled his career forward at top speed, surpassing even his own expectations. His unbridled enthusiasm and adrenaline pumping interaction with everyone he meets often raises the question, How does he do it? As a sought after speaker and enormously successful distributor with Nu Skin Enterprises, Dan has achieved success not by a formal education, but instead, through a focused and persistent study of great men and women whom he refers to as the oracles of human development. Having earned millions of dollars by building his business that includes tens of thousands of distributors world-wide, Dan McCormick is a man worth listening to.

Twenty-one years ago, Dan McCormick challenged me to read the third book of my life at forty years of age! Since that time, my wife Sue, and I, have earned over 15 million dollars. If Dan is recommending another book to you, I would certainly listen; it could change your life.
