Why I Wrote This Summary
While it is an extraordinary book, The Law of Success is also very long at over 1,100 pages. As I was taking notes while working through the book I decided to share them with you because I feel that everyone should have access to this information. If you follow the advice in this course well and approach it with the right mindset, it will change your life!
While this summary contains all of the essential information of The Law of Success, I encourage everyone that is prepared to take the time to read the actual book or listen to the audio book.
