'Making money is a knack, a knack that can be acquired. And if someone like me can become rich, then so can you - no matter what your present circumstances. Here is how I did it and what I learned along the way.' So writes Felix Dennis, who believes that almost anyone of reasonable intelligence can become rich, given sufficient motivation and application.
How To Get Rich is a distillation of his business wisdom. Primarily concerned with the step-by-step creation of wealth, it ruthlessly dissects the business failures and financial triumphs of 'a South London lad who became rich virtually by accident'. Part manual, part memoir, part primer, this book is a template for those who are willing to stare down failure and transform their lives.
Canny, infuriating, cynical and generous by turns, How To Get Rich is an invaluable guide to 'the surprisingly simple art of collecting money which already has your name on it'.
Felix Dennis is one of Britain's wealthiest self-made entrepreneurs with an estimated fortune of £500 million. And he didn't get there simply by reading about how to get rich. He went out and did it.
Appreciating that those intent on becoming rich will not have the time or inclination to read page upon page of guidance and advice on the subject, Felix Dennis has reduced his own business wisdom to 88 tenets of wealth-generation, all written in his inimitable style.
How to Make Money is for those determined to get rich, for those who will not confuse reading with doing, for those who seek the narrow road. (First published in hardback as 88 The Narrow Road.)
God speed ...
and Good Luck!
The second collection of original verse by the maverick multimillionaire publisher Felix Dennis.
Praise for Felix Dennis's first volume of poetry, A Glass Half Full:
'The unpredictable Felix Dennis bursts forth as a 21st-century Kipling' Tom Wolfe
'If Waugh were still alive, he would fall on Dennis's verse with a glad cry of recognition and approval' John Walsh, Independent
'At least one of these poems will be instantly anthologised' Melvyn Bragg
'A Glass Half Full is funny, poignant and a breath of fresh air. I loved the whole thing' Sarah Broadhurst, Bookseller
'A Glass Half Full blew me away, Dennis is a crouching tiger about to wreak mayhem amongst the bleating lambs of English poetry' Mick Farren, author of Give the Anarchist a Cigarette
'A fantastic collection! Rich, sumptuous and beautifully threaded' Jon Snow
Following in the footsteps of A Glass Half Full, Lone Wolf and When Jack Sued Jill, Homeless In My Heart - Felix Dennis's long-awaited new collection of verse - is 'the story of a fool whose life was saved by poetry'.
Felix Dennis's life has been a long series of unlikely events: incarceration by the British government in 1971 following the longest conspiracy trial in British history; recording a chart single with John Lennon; co-authoring Muhammad Ali's first biography; becoming one of the richest individuals in Britain; launching one of the most successful media brands in the world; falling into crack cocaine addiction; beginning the task of planting a huge native broad-leaf forest in the Heart of England; salvaging the wreckage of a life dedicated to hedonism; and, lastly, and most surprisingly of all, discovering that he could write the kind of poetry that people wanted to read and to hear.
Now, with the publication of Homeless In My Heart, Felix Dennis's extraordinary talents have come to fruition - from ironic tales of darkness and savagery to hymns of praise for the glories of nature. Homeless In My Heart fulfils the promise predicted by the author and critic Tom Wolfe, who has called Dennis 'a 21st-century Kipling [whose poetry] rollicks and rolls with rhyme, meter and melody'.
Never one to shy away from difficult subjects, in Love, Of a Kind Dennis brings awkwardness, pain and intimacy together in an inimitable and pithy way. In over 50 new poems, accompanied by woodcut engravings, not only does Dennis present us with a different kind of love, but he also presents us with a different way of talking about love.
With his work admired by the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, Stephen Fry and Benjamin Zephaniah, Love, Of a Kind is an invaluable and indispensible collection of poetry for any poetry lovers' shelf and, for that matter, any lover's shelf.
When Jack Sued Jill is the latest collection of original verse by maverick multimillionaire publisher Felix Dennis. Taking the innocence of nursery rhymes and turning them into something altogether darker, Dennis turns his piercing eye on the follies and absurdities of modern life.
From ASBOs to Osama Bin Laden, creationism to crack houses, Humpty Dumpty to Tony Blair, nothing and no one is spared. Even more shockingly, once you've read Dennis's updating of 'Little Miss Muffet', you'll never be able to think of her in the same way again.
Scathing and hilarious, imaginative and unpredictable, When Jack Sued Jill is an essential collection of twisted nursery rhymes for the twenty-first century.
