Windsor, William: How to Become Rich. 18 Sept 07
You asked for it, you wanted it, you couldn't live without it. So at great personal sacrifice (mainly to my dignity) I offer for your consideration, How to Become Rich.
Not another get rich quick, snake oil filled scam book (unless you are William Windsor), but a study in the pseudo-science of Phrenology. (That's where we determine your character by the shape of your head.) If you have ever just looked at a person and known what type they are, then you have practiced Phrenology.
Now the offers in the back of the book to send in photographs of your head and receive a four page report printed on cardboard suitable for framing has expired. Sorry, no rain checks.
So sit back and enjoy a trip down memory lane to the snake oil and patent medicine days of the late 19th century USA.
