Focus and determination are the subjects of this 1921 parable about a "never-say-die" salesman who is given a challenge and gets it done. Updated by business writer Alan Axelrod, the tale moves quickly with vivid characters and well-timed suspense. By the time the parable ends, the listener is ready for the moral of the story, which is offered in the form of old-fashioned advice. The premise of being tested by a strict boss and succeeding may seem outdated in the current climate of free-agent entrepreneurial thinking. But the real lesson is the timeless one of how to identify what's important on a job--independent of what we're told--and succeed through a flat-out desire to get it done. T.W.
