Edward Everett Hale wrote this book as a manual to young people on how to live well, out of his experience with a group of thirty-four young people whom he knew well. Many of the chapters came out of articles that Hale had previously written for the magazine Our Young Folks or the paper The Youth's Companion. In this first section, Hale gives lessons on speaking properly with polite company, writing effectively and with purpose, how to choose books to read, and how to improve reading comprehension and retention.
