The Master Key System by Charles Haanel was first published in 1916. It’s now in the public domain, so it’s available from various sources.
There’s also good app for the i-phone and iPad costing around $3 called Self Help Classics that contains this great book and other classics such as Think and Grow Rich, The Power of Concentration and The Science of Getting Rich.
The Complete Master Key System brings the book into the modern day and expands on the principles laid down by Haanel. The original text is also contained at the back.
