هذا الكتاب كان من المفترض أن يكون ترجمة لكتاب (Self Help-Samuel Smiles ) المنشور في عام1859 م لكنني وجدت أن المقدمة التي كتبها المترجم يعقوب صروف قد حذفت من هذه النسخة. ففي الطبعات القديمة لهذا الكتاب، يصرح يعقوب صروف بأن هذا الكتاب هو كتاب للفاضل سامويل سمايلز إلا أنه أضاف بعض الفقرات لتقريب الفكرة

Self-Help, Samuel Smiles
Samuel Smiles (23 December 1812 – 16 April 1904), was a Scottish author and government reformer who campaigned on a Chartist platform. But he concluded that more progress would come from new attitudes than from new laws. His masterpiece, Self-Help (1859), promoted thrift and
