This edition of Napoleon Hill's Classic Think and Grow Rich is a reproduction of Napoleon Hill's personal copy of the first edition, the ONLY original version recommended by The Napoleon Hill Foundation, originally printed in March of 1937.

The most famous of all teachers of success spent "a fortune and the better part of a lifetime of effort" to produce the "Law of Success" philosophy that forms the basis of his books and that is so powerfully summarized and explained for the general public in this book.

In Think and Grow Rich, Hill draws on stories of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires of his generation to illustrate his principles. This book will teach you the secrets that could bring you a fortune. It will show you not only what to do but how to do it. Once you learn and apply the simple, basic techniques revealed here, you will have mastered the secret of true and lasting success.

Money and material things are essential for freedom of body and mind, but there are some who will feel that the greatest of all riches can be evaluated only in terms of lasting friendships, loving family relationships, understanding between business associates, and introspective harmony which brings one true peace of mind! All who read, understand, and apply this philosophy will be better prepared to attract and enjoy these spiritual values.

BE PREPARED! When you expose yourself to the influence of this philosophy, you may experience a CHANGED LIFE which can help you negotiate your way through life with harmony and understanding and prepare you for the accumulation of abundant material riches.

I'm currently reading this book. This is a great book for entrepreneurs. My family has started a reading book club and this is the first book that we are reading. Love his perseverance.

This is basically the original self help book, which works both for and against it. This book was written before self help authors realized it was more profitable to praise people for 'raising their consciousness' than actually expecting them to do work, and so the book gives practical advise. But at the same time, this book is the original self-help book and thus most of the books that followed ripped off Mr. Hill shamelessly, making much of this familiar reading if you have read any self-help book ever. And finally it is an old book. The author actually knew Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and President Franklin Roosevelt. This means that much of what he recommends is no dated, either in application (hiring a typist for instance) or in cultural assumptions (the latent sexism and prudish puritan protestant assumptions for example). You could do worse than this book, but keep in mind the context if you choose to read it.

I was reffered to this book after reading 'Rich Dad Poor Dad' Very much like the book 'the secret' I believe this book inspired the makers of the best selling book 'the secret'
Not a bad read. I didn't finish it though I found I read to many of these kind of books. Maybe pick it up later.
