Thomas Edison then and Tony Robbins now? The become-a-millionaire-electrician “Good Life” a century ago is like the current promise of cashing in on real estate by simply buying a newspaper and leveraging a couple of credit cards.

Somehow I can’t imagine infotainment on sandwich boards and silent movies.

Web was from spiders, not geeks on Jolt Cola and Doritos.

It was probably 2-3 bucks, but then, that money bought a number of loaves or bread.

I just checked, and this book cost $1.00 in 1901.

It really is not what you think.

I will take some pictures of the content pages so you can get an idea of what I mean.
