"John Ploughman's Talk" by C.H. Spurgeon

“John Ploughman’s Talk” by C.H. Spurgeon is a down to earth, witty, and swarthy collection of lessons for common people. With selections entitled Idleness, Gossip, Try, and Ignorant People, C.H. Spurgeon’s “Talk” is a fountain of good advice offered in an agreeable and understandable language. “Dont’ count your chickens before they’re hatched,” and “Try, try again,” are just some of the oldstyle anthems used throughout the book. Appropriate for old and young alike, it can be especially poignant for children just entering the working age.

Gist: very highly recommended.
