From the foreword by G.M. Philpott:
"Those of us who have been associated with Mr. Danforth in business know that this Dare idea works. Practically all of the leaders in his great organization were boys who came from humble surroundings and were dared by him to high accomplishments. He has dared most by his own daring example. Mr. Danforth gives the best that is in him, whether he is guiding a great industry, traveling in a remote corner of the world, shooting ducks or playing with his grandchildren. The day ahead is always the most thrilling day in his life. The job at hand is always the most important one he has ever undertaken. He never gives less than his best."
