A dark horse, already off to the same sort of spectacular start that put The Coming American Boom on the best seller list a few months ago. Similar in format, though a bit more readily handled. A series of informal letters addressed to laymen -- business men of moderate means -- predicting (as one layman to another) the beginning of inflation in 1935 -- visible effects by Spring of 1936 -- business activity and prosperity from 1936 to 1939 or '40, showing what this means and how it will be brought about by natural business cycle (already on the up grade), plus positive governmental efforts, explaining how this will affect commodities, real estate, stocks and bonds, and what laymen should do to take advantage of it. Logical and honest throughout, no hedging nor dodging issues. An inevitable candidate for quick sales. Backed by tremendous advertising campaign, and the push of immediate sales in metropolitan areas.
