Twenty Years of Hus'ling   By: (1852-)

Book cover

In "Twenty Years of Hus'ling" by J. P. (James Perry) Johnston, readers are taken on a captivating journey through the life of a self-made man who rose from humble beginnings to achieve remarkable success. With an engaging narrative style, Johnston provides an intimate and honest account of his twenty-year-long hustle, making the story both relatable and inspiring.

One of the most commendable aspects of Johnston's memoir is his skillful storytelling. The author effortlessly takes us from one chapter to the next, weaving together anecdotes, experiences, and valuable lessons. This makes for a highly entertaining read that both captivates and educates the reader.

Throughout the book, Johnston's determination and grit shine through, as he tackles numerous obstacles and overcomes adversity. His accounts of early failures and setbacks are particularly enlightening, as they reveal the resilience necessary to triumph in the face of adversity. Johnston's story thereby becomes a powerful reminder that success rarely comes without significant effort.

Moreover, "Twenty Years of Hus'ling" provides a valuable insight into the historical context of the time. Johnston vividly describes the challenges faced by individuals striving for success in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. From the impact of economic downturns to the evolution of business practices, readers gain a deeper understanding of the social and economic landscape during this era.

Additionally, Johnston's candid writing style allows readers to connect with him on a personal level. As he shares both his triumphs and personal struggles, we are invited into his world, feeling his joys and sorrows. This emotional connection creates a sense of investment in his journey, resulting in a truly immersive reading experience.

If there is one aspect that could have been improved, it is the lack of reflection on the author's personal growth and the transformation he undergoes during his two decades of hustling. While Johnston does impart valuable lessons and occasionally touches upon his evolving mindset, a more profound exploration of his personal development would have been a welcome addition.

Overall, "Twenty Years of Hus'ling" is an outstanding memoir that offers readers an insightful and entertaining glimpse into the life of a self-made man. With its engaging narrative, historical context, and relatable themes, Johnston's book serves as an inspiring testament to the power of determination and perseverance. Whether you are a fan of memoirs, seeking motivation, or simply interested in history, this book is undoubtedly worth the read.

MY APOLOGY.

After finishing all that I had intended for publication in my book entitled "THE AUCTIONEER'S GUIDE," I was advised by a few of my most intimate friends to add a sketch of my own life to illustrate what had been set forth in its pages.

This for the sole purpose of stimulating those who may have been for years "pulling hard against the stream," unable, perhaps, to ascertain where they properly belong, and possibly on the verge of giving up all hope, because of failure, after making repeated honest efforts to succeed.
