Dedicated to the classes of 1910 and 1911 at the School of Practical Arts in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, in this book Margaret Slattery gives advice to young men and women with short, example narratives about how to achieve the success that lies "just over the hill." This advice includes the importance of hard work in achieving success, choosing a vocation at which they can be successful, and working with others. Slattery also reminds her readers that no one is a "self-made man" and that success always involves many other people. Slattery also advices readers that success requires assets and the, "...three most necessary and most valuable assets are Cheerfulness, Courtesy and Concentration."
