With precision, he elucidates on
each topic with logic and rigor that not only leaves you feeling
good, but also thinking good. The book was banned by the Church
in 1933 and has been hidden away for seventy years!
Rumor has it that while he was attending
Harvard University, Bill Gates discovered and read The Master
Key System by Charles F. Haanel. It was this book that inspired
Bill Gates to drop out of the University and pursue his dream
of "a computer on every desktop." You probably know the results.
It is Silicon Valley's secret that almost every entrepreneur who made a fortune in recent years did so by studying the words Mr. Haanel penned over eighty years ago! Almost every millionaire and billionaire in the Valley read The Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel. Since this book was no longer in print until recently, copies of The Master Key System became a hot commodity in the Valley.
The Master Key System is a system that teaches the ultimate principles, causes, effects, and laws that underlie all attainment and success. When you want to attain something, The Master Key System will show you how to get it. The results you will attain from using this system are so startling as to appear incredible. For this reason, more and more people are becoming students of The Master Key System than ever before
In 24 parts, The Master Key sets out the fundamental principles of life and creative living, as Haanel came to understand and apply them. Basic to his teaching is the correct development and use of mental power -- the key to truly creative power and action, harmony and health, love and happiness, and abundant possibilities. Each part is meant to be studied like a correspondence course lesson, but this is also a book that can be opened at random for whatever gem of advice your eyes happen to fall upon.
This age-old wisdom was written by someone who could perceive and tap into Universal Mind but who seems to have no particular allegiance to any specific system of knowledge. Haanel's numbered commonsense messages still have a freshness 89 years after they were first assembled.
Mr. Haanel died in 1949 and is buried in Bellafontaine Cemetery,
St. Louis. Walter B. Stevens described Mr. Haanel as "a man of
mature judgment, capable of taking a calm survey of life and
correctly valuing its opportunities, its possibilities, its demands
knowledge is NOW available
for public consumption."
