The main subject of the book is best stated in a quote from C. S. Lewis: "Often we need not so much to be taught as to be reminded." As I said in the Foreword, "How many times over the years I have reached for a scrap of paper or underlined a passage or quotation in a book, noting something that seemed wise and useful. However, as I review my notes, I frequently come upon some guideline to positive thought or behavior that I have simply let drift from my memory and have neglected to practice." The remedy? That is the purpose of this book: to summarize, briefly enough for quick and regular review, words of wisdom I have found important enough to remember.

“Keep away from MR. AURIC GOLDFINGER. He is a most powerful man. If he wished to crush you, he would only have to roll over in his sleep to do so.” OPERATION GRAND SLAM Secret agent James Bond had been warned not to tangle with Goldfinger. But the super-criminal’s latest obsession was too strong, too dangerous. He had to be stopped. Goldfinger was determined to take possession of half the supply of mined gold in the world—to rob Fort Knox! For this incredible venture he had enlisted the aid of the top criminals in the U.S., including a bevy of beautiful thieves from the Bronx. And he had conceived so foolproof a plan that it would take all of Bond’s unique talents to make it fail—as fail it must. JAMES BOND challenges GOLDFINGER, THE MOST EVIL GENIUS HE HAS EVER FACED. He’s a phenomenal criminal who likes his women dressed only in gold paint. He’s a magnificent fiend who carries his cash in gold bars. He’s a powerful villain who plans to pull the biggest and boldest crime in history—the robbery of all the gold in Fort Knox. “It’s all marvellously intricate and polished storytelling, all absurdly impossible, all superlative fun.”—Cleveland News. “We recommend Goldfinger for just what it is: sophisticated, tongue-in-cheek entertainment par excellence.”—Playboy Magazine. “If you like heroes heroic, a woman who proves, finally, that she’s all woman, and a villain who is a dirty dog, then Goldfinger is for you.”—Detroit Sunday Times.
