While many readers search for the Jay Gatsby's magic hidden formula for riches and success, Subliminal360 I'm sure they simply gloss over Gatsby's schedule for self-improvement. But let's not be mistaken; therein we find the roots of his success.

Jay's father: "Jimmy was bound to get ahead. He always had some resolves like this or something. Do you notice what he's got about improving his mind? He was always great for that. He told me I et like a hog once and I beat him for it."
Nick: "He was reluctant to close the book, reading each item aloud and then looking eagerly at me. I think he rather expected me to copy down the list for my own use."
