Acres of Diamonds by Russell Conwell is renowned as a classic work on how to be great regardless of your station in life. This book originated as a speech that the minister Conwell delivered over 6,000 times around the world. Here the author argues that men and women need not look elsewhere for wealth and prosperity; success can be found in his or her own community.
Conwell is the Founder of Temple University in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, an institution that was established largely upon income derived from the original Acres of Diamonds speech. We hope you enjoy this lively and inspirational exploration of the riches that exist right in front of us all.
