Our #1 most downloaded e-book!

“So, Sandra… can I forget about that £20 I owe you?”

Yes, when Sandra Hurst told us that money doesn’t exist, we honestly thought that she was crazy. But when she finished explaining, it’s clear that she has a better grip of the TRUE concept of money than, maybe, 90% of people around, even those on Wall Street. After all, they didn’t see the credit crunch coming, did they? But guess who did?

If you want a real starting point for this subject – one you will never find in any school or newspaper, download this book NOW. You will not be disappointed…

3. Black + White = Grey by Paul Obinna

Paul Obinna, resident speaker at Hogarth Blake, has had some truly unique life experiences – growing up as one of the few dark-skinned children in several all white towns & cities in the 1950s, his background gave him a headstart in understanding mixed race communities… and all the issues that come with them.

Quite often, being ‘Black + White’ gives him the best of both worlds sometimes; but ocassionally ‘Black + White’ can equal ‘Grey’… a dull, lifeless colour.

Controversial? Or honest? You decide.

5. Obama's 1st speech as US President-elect

This is the complete transcript of Barack Obama’s victory speech in front of a 100,000 + crowd in Chicago, once he had been confirmed as US President-Elect on 5th November 2008.

Noted as an exceptional orator, this is a truly landmark speech in world politics. Not just because he became the ‘first’ non-white to become US president, but because it was a speech filled with hope for a unified country in the face of serious political dilemmas such as international terrorism and financial disaster.

“… If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer…”

6. Dame Flora Shaw gives the name 'Nigeria' - The Times (London) January 8th, 1897

Flora Shaw was the daughter of a British captain whose family life led her to begin a career in journalism from a young age. Her writings were constantly infused with a burning passion for what she saw as the positive aspects of the British Empire and all of the notions of racial & colonial superiority which went with it.

Appointed as the Colonial Editor for The Times of London, she had carte blanche to travel the vast British Empire at the time and rapidly became a foremost journalist of her time, even if at first she had to disguise her sex under a nickname.

She later married the first Governor General of the British Crown’s West African real estate / trading company district (now Nigeria) – this led her to devise a name which would be a shortened version of the “agglomeration of pagan and Mahomedan States” that was functioning under the cumbersome official title, “Royal Niger Company Territories“.

In this ultra rare article describing the geography of the region, Shaw outlines her reasoning for a name change – the ultimate in colonial tampering.

“The name Nigeria applying to no other part of Africa may without offence to any neighbours be accepted as co-extensive with the territories over which the Royal Niger Company has extended British influence , and may serve to differentiate them equally from the colonies of Lagos and the Niger Protectorate on the coast and from the  French territories of the Upper Niger.”

25 years in the making and one of the best-selling & most influential books of all time – Napoleon Hill wrote the original defintion of a classic.

Commissioned by Andrew Carnegie (the steel magnate & richest man on earth at the time) to organise an official philosophy of personal achievement, this book began as Hill’s series of interviews with over 500 of the world’s most successful men including Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, John D. Rockefeller, George Eastman, William Wrigley Jr., Charles Schwab, Ivy League and more.

It quickly mushroomed into the priceless 13 steps to success found in this book, outlined clearly, with dozens of true to life examples as backup. From decision making to organised planning to mastermind teamwork to channeling sex power to expanding the unlimited subconscious mind, no aspect of life is left unexplored.

Still regarded as a classic by people from all walks of life and just as effective today as it was in 1937, Hogarth Blake strenously recommends this book as an excellent starting point to develop a Positive Mental Attitude for health, wealth, wisdom & success.

9. The Science Of Getting Rich (1910) by Wallace D. Wattles (1860 - 1911)

A self taught practitioner of creative visualisation, Wallace D. Wattles wrote this book as a very simple & very practical method of improving one’s mental conditioning with regards to attracting wealth.

By shunning traditional wealth accumulation methods that emphasise a necessity for external dealings as a starting point, this book outlines, in clear and robust language, methods that focus on improving the mind and self-belief as the most solid foundation for attracting money in the same way a magnet attracts its opposite pole.

Lauded by the modern self-help movement as a ground-breaking key work, Hogarth Blake highly recommends this book for anyone seeking a new perspective on financial excellence.

In an attempt to curtail King John’s excessive legal powers (The Divine Right of Kings), England’s richest barons banded together to form the document that would become the bedrock of modern law. The UK, US & European Constitutions & law structures all point to this document as its origin.

27. Egyptian Book of the Dead

First discovered by German Egyptologist Karl Richard Lepsius in the mid 19th century, this is a translation of the famous funerary text often placed in the coffins or burial cambers of the dead in ancient Egypt.

With over 180 short chapters, it is a clearcut description of the ancient Egyptian conception of the afterlife, from dying and travelling to the underworld to having ones soul judged before the gods to being reborn with the morning sun. The ancient Egyptian ideas of re-incarnation directly influence similar ideas found in both ancient (Roman / Greek) and modern (Christian) religions.

The title of this document actually translates as ‘The Book Of Coming Forth By Day’, but got its misleading name from the locations where it was commonly found. Unfortunately, our downloadable version does not contain the original illustrations.
