In this book, "...dedicated to every young man who has an ambition to make the most of himself and his opportunities," James Vance discusses the four roles of men: business, society, politics, and religion. Vance emphasizes the importance and benefits of diligence for men in business and at work, giving advice on choosing a vocation, balancing work and other duties, and important traits for the businessman. For the young man in society, Vance warns against becoming certain types of society men, such as the "blasé young man" or the "dishonest young man," and gives advice concerning how to take part in society. The young man in politics is to stay informed on current issues, obey the law, and vote. Finally, the young man in religion is to live like Christ and take an active role in the religious community even if he does not become a priest.
