Describe the sale of the stack of lumber. How does Napoleon outwit himself? He tries to swindle the men, but ends up getting counterfeit money in payment. When Pilkington, who was double-crossed in the deal, is asked for help to repel Frederick's attack, Pilkington refuses.

Napoleon Bonaparte was a short man. He stood at 5’2” and was always looking for ways to make himself look taller. His towering stature was a source of great insecurity. Napoleon was also a military genius and a man of great ambition.

Napoleon’s problem was that he wasn’t able to see the big picture. He was so focused on the sale of his lumber business that he wasn’t able to see that the real value he was providing to his clients was not the lumber, but rather the expertise and knowledge he was giving them.

He should have just sold the lumber for $90 and not the lumber plus the fence for $110. If he would have sold just the lumber for $90, he would have made $10 more per stack, and he would have only needed to sell 3 stacks of lumber instead of 4 in order to make the same amount of money.
