This volume was not intended for your eyes, nor anybody elses. I have made the conscious decision to not publish my own autobiography, although many publishers and acquaintances have implored me to do so. Several biographies have already been written about me even before my death, and there are sure to be many more after my death, and I encourage you to explore one of those. They contain the story of my rich, full life, the story of how I became wealthier than I ever could have imagined, and how I became one of the most famous people on the planet, my name and accomplishments known to presidents and kings. I will certainly go down in history as one of the most important men who has ever walked the Earth. These published accounts are those that I wish to be made known to the world, and though they seem to cover my life from cradle to grave, or nearly so, they cover only half of the story, and even that half is enough to make me nearly legendary. The other half of my lifes story is known to nobody but me, but as hard as it may be to believe, it is even more incredible than my well-known side. I have never even hinted about it to my wives, my children, nor my closest friends, and they wouldnt believe me if I told them. I have become incredibly rich and famous by inventing many wonderful things that have changed the world, but my most important discovery, my most important invention, is completely unknown to the world, despite being the greatest accomplishment in the history of humankind. I only wrote this volume for my own use, to document an incredible period of my life that I wish to remain private. I intend to destroy this volume before my death, but if you are reading it then my plans were obviously thwarted for some reason. Whatever those reasons might be, the fact remains that I do not wish, under any circumstances, to share this portion of my lifes story with you or any other person. So please respect my wishes and my privacy, and put this volume back where you found it and forget you ever saw it.Thank you.
