“The Purpose of Power” is a self-help handbook by William George Jordan focusing on power and the role it plays in our relationships and work life. A timeless guide to self-betterment, this volume is not to be missed by those with an interest in improving their mental well-being, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of vintage literature. William George Jordan (1864 – 1928) was an American lecturer, editor, and essayist. He is most famous for his self-help books, especially those on the subject of mental training and cognitive improvement. Other notable works by this author include: “Mental Training” (1894), “The Kingship of Self-Control” (1898), and “The Majesty of Calmness” (1900). Contents include: “Power of Individual Purpose”, “The Inspiration of Possibilities”, “Facing the Mistakes of Life”, “When We Forget the Equity”, “The Crown of Individuality”, “The Optimism That Really Counts”, and “The Dark Valley of Prosperity”. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
