Think and Grow Rich: The Landmark Bestseller Now Revised and Updated for the 21st Century (Think and Grow Rich Series)

by: Napoleon Hill (0)

Think and Grow Rich has been called the "Granddaddy of All Motivational Literature." It was the first book to boldly ask, "What makes a winner?" The man who asked and listened for the answer, Napoleon Hill, is now counted in the top ranks of the world's winners himself.

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 in this one.

In the original Think and Grow Rich, published in 1937, Hill draws on stories of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires of his generation to illustrate his principles. In the updated version, Arthur R. Pell, Ph.D., a nationally known author, lecturer, and consultant in human resources management and an expert in applying Hill's thought, deftly interweaves anecdotes of how contemporary millionaires and billionaires, such as Bill Gates, Mary Kay Ash, Dave Thomas, and Sir John Templeton, achieved their wealth. Outmoded or arcane terminology and examples are faithfully refreshed to preclude any stumbling blocks to a new generation of readers.

The Reviews

If you're looking for an edge in your pursuit of success, skip this book. 20 years ago I bought this book and it's ideas hook, line and sinker; however, after spending two decades on application it's apparent that the principles in this book are mostly nonsense. I am only going to take the time to highlight two pieces of misinformation in this book: visualization, and "the secret."This book touts visualizing your goals as a method to speed up/ensure attainment. Research shows that the opposite is true. Visualizing your goals and imagining how it would feel to have achieved them has been show to consistently reduce drive and motivation. This book is full of misinformation like this, that if diligently applied will be counterproductive.There is "the secret" alluded to in this book, and the subject of a nonsense DVD and book by the same title. The most important warning that I can give someone younger, after 20 years of time wasted looking for secrets is this: the only free cheese is in a mouse trap. Secrets to success do NOT exist. Time spent looking for "secrets" or applying them is time that could be invested in getting better at the fundamentals of whatever arena you are in.One of the most basic examples would be personal finance: the only people getting rich off the "secrets of wealth" are the people selling those "secrets." Ultimately there are just a handful of things that matter in personal finance - get out of debt, live on a budget, invest in assets with a decent balance of risk & return, have a rainy day fund (and funds for other things you know are coming - Christmas gifts, college, etc.).This book is selling a fantasy that appeals to deep biases that all humans have. Do yourself a favor, skip this book.

Amazon has done us a huge disservice by lumping all the reviews for the various "original" versions of this book together. The version I purchased (black cover with money on the bottom, kindle version) is riddled with errors where the publisher evidently SCANNED the book in and then didn't bother to edit the results. Page numbers appear randomly in the middle of paragraphs, "m" appears where clearly "in" was intended and in some cases paragraphs just end in the middle of a sentence. This is a great book but some of the publishers have done a terrible job reproducing it and Amazon isn't helping by grouping very different copies together in the same review group.I hope to update this review when I find a less crappy copy of this book, but avoid the version with the black cover with money on the bottom.

In your journey for success, and Ive read over 150 books on business and personal development, this is the godfather. The only true place to start. But be weary, because this book requests you physically do things outside of reading, such as writing your daily goals, writing your 6 steps and reciting them daily. You may consider these tasks mundane but this is the subconcious training that takes you from reading a book to changing your life. #DoTheWork requested in the book, otherwise it will be a waste of time to even read it.

The content is nonsense, tons of rubbish included in the book. Two reasons why i rated this book so low are:1. In a large portion of the book, the author praises his own work. He even included a letter (which cover pages) of which only purpose is praising the book itself and have nothing to do with the content. By the time I read that the 13 principles in this book will make me rich, I’d realized that the rest of the content would be all rubbish, and my prediction turned out to be right.2. The point he makes is all misleading. Whenever he addresses any point, the author COMPLETELY and DELIBERATELY hides the opposite side of the arguments and just continue praising the greatness of his point and support by various examples which, every now and then, are falsified.

Despite the age of this book, I found the underlying lessons it contained to be highly relevant to my life today. The most valuable ideas I gathered from this book:1) You cannot acquire great wealth without a concrete plan for attaining that wealth, a serious passion that compels you to act on your plan continuously, and great faith that your plan will allow you to succeed.2) Many of the world's greatest achievers were passionate to the point of obsession, and in order to emulate their success you must cultivate a desire until it becomes an obsession.3) Material success does not come solely as a result of knowledge acquisition, but rather from one's ability to organize and transform specialized knowledge such that it can be delivered to a wide audience in the form of a product or service.4) Persistence often makes the difference between success and failure. It is a state of mind that is essential to success and can be overcome through effort.5) One of the common attributes of highly successful people is the ability to reach decisions quickly and to change them slowly. Most of us are the opposite.

This book is nuttier than a fruitcake. I turned a blind eye to some of the hippie stuff and pulled some useful lessons out of chapters one and two, but I couldn't make it any further. It reminds me of "The Secret," but maybe the first paragraph of chapter three would help explain:"Faith is the head chemist of the mind. When faith is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer."What is this crap? If you want to learn how to manage your finances, go invest in books like "Rich Dad, Poor Dad," "The Richest Man in Babylon," or "The Automatic Millionaire." If you want to believe you can get rich by sitting in a circle in the woods singing Kumbaya and eating organic couscous and not bathing, this is the book for you.

The frame is pretty but it's pretty cheap quality for the price. When I opened the back to put my picture in after receiving it, there's big chunk of the frame that fell off around the pins ...

The media could not be loaded.  I first read this when I was like 19 or 20 years old, I'm 31 now. I've heard people say that this book kind of grows with you. I read it again and I think I actually got more out of it the first time I read it. I'll explain why later...I'll be honest, I read this book about 11 years ago and, I've done a lot of thinking (and doing) since then but I really have not grown rich. So you may want to just stop watching this now if you were hoping to hear from someone who's made a bunch of money as a result of reading Think & Grow Rich.However, where it's really ROI'd for me is in rich life experiences...I've spent years traveling around the world living in interesting places..Having control of my time. I spent pretty close to 100% of my my time doing the things I want to do.Finding meaningful work. Finding that intersection of what I'm good at, what I'm passionate about and what people are willing to handsomely compensate me for.Having interesting relationships with a diversity of people.And it's really given me an abundance of the two things that I have always I valued most, which are... 1. An adventurous life of novelty. 2. Being a thinker. Even when I was very young I knew I wanted to be a writer, I knew I wanted to be a philosopher. With the application of the principals in this book I've accomplished that.There are some things in this book that I actually think Napoleon Hill was wrong about...Inaccurate PredictionsHe makes some inaccurate predictions..."Crooners and light chatter artists who now pollute the air with wisecracks and silly giggles, will go the way of all light timbers, and their places will be taken by real artists who interpret carefully planned programed which have been designed to service the minds of men, as well as provide entertainment."Napoleon Hill would be spinning in his grave if he could see how bad art has gotten; a Nicki Minaj music video, a rude comedian perform or a DJ being cheered on by hundreds of people in a nightclub just for pressing buttons on their laptop.He was obviously a capitalist but there's a couple of passages that reveals some proto-socialism actually, for exampleThe relationship of employer and employee, or of leader and follower, in the future, will be one of mutual cooperation, based upon an equitable division of the profits of business. In the future, the relationship of employer and employee will be more like a partnership than it has been in the past. (p. 67)He also writes"in the future, business will be conducted by methods that will require no pressure. "I don't know how you would quantify how cut throat on a whole the business world is. I guess businessmen don't hire mercenaries to break employee strikes anymore and there are a whole lot more self employed people now, but I think Napoleon Hill was, like a lot of great thinkers, a bit deluded by this idea of a fair and benign business world. This is contrary to human nature.He also had an unrealistic optimism about the future of journalism, writing"New leaders will be required in the field of Journalism. Newspapers of the future, to be conducted successfully, must be divorced from “special privilege” and relieved from the subsidy of advertising. They must cease to be organs of propaganda for the interests which patronize their advertising columns. "Again he'd be spinning in his grave if he could see the nepotism that typifies the main stream media today.Psuedo-SpiritualityThe book is rife with psuedo-spiritualityMoreover, men know that this living, pulsating, vibratory energy which permeates every atom of matter, and fills every niche of space, connects every human brain with every other human brain. What reason have men to believe that this same energy does not connect every human brain with Infinite Intelligence? (p. 146)The phrase "infinite intelligence" appears 40 times in the bookfaith is the only agency through which the cosmic force of Infinite Intelligence can be harnessed and used by man. (p. 20)The notion that there is this ethereal none human intelligence, that inspires invention and genius as opposed to it just being a combination of hard work, cleverness, and inherent human ability is interesting. It's an idea that great writers and thinkers have espoused for a long time, yet it is totally none falsifiable - you can't really prove or disprove it. So it's pretty wu-wu, Napoleon Hill also states...Mental telepathy is a reality. Thoughts pass from one mind to another, voluntarily, whether or not this fact is recognized by either the person releasing the thoughts, or the persons who pick up those thoughts. (p. 179)There may actually be some scientific basis for this. You might remember in the video game Rainbow 6 you could use a heartbeat sensor to detect where other people where. This is based upon a real device used by special forces, that works by detecting the electro-magnetic field that the heart gives off. Humans seem to have a keen ability to pickup what the electro-magnetic heart fields of those around us are saying. This bio-phenomenon is likely responsible for that effect where you sense the emotions of people around you without some really obvious clue.On FaithThere's a lot of emphasis on faith"faith is the starting point of all accumulation of riches!"This chapter was maybe a little difficult for me because I'm not a big fan of faith, I'm an empiricist.“faith is a state of mind, and that it may be induced by self-suggestion.”Flowstates__On SexThe most interesting chapter of the book is, I think, on sexThere are other mind stimulants, some of which have been listed, but no one of them, nor all of them combined, can equal the driving power of sex. (p. 132)Among the greatest, and most powerful of these stimuli is the urge of sex. When harnessed and transmuted, this driving force is capable of lifting men into that higher sphere of thought which enables them to master the sources of worry and petty annoyance which beset their pathway on the lower plane. (p. 129)I'll say something that will perhaps be a little controversial; I think this chapter is just for men. I have no idea how sex transmutation would work for women in the way that Napoleon Hill talks about it working for men.. Maybe someone can tell me?On LoveLove, Romance, and Sex are all emotions capable of driving men to heights of super achievement. Love is the emotion which serves as a safety valve, and insures balance, poise, and constructive effort. (p. 136)He talks about love quiet a bit in the book and it should be noted that the popular definition of love has changed a lot since this book was written. In the past love was a word that signified an intense emotional commitment to something greater than oneself expressed through acts of service. Now love just means like this intoxicated feeling, that you fall into and fall out of randomly, that makes you act stupid. It's this insatiable desire for someone or something that makes you irrational. It's this thing that people say to each other for our own emotional validation. I really think modern day love, does more harm than good.On Persistence"The better portion of all sales I have made, were made after people had said ‘NO’.”This reminded me of what's called The Four Times Rule which comes from a pickup artist. The rule is the you are allowed to approach someone you find attractive four times. Which is really a good rule for anything in life, if you want something persist in asking for it as many as four times.On EducationHe would have been totally dismayed with all the free education available today. He writes that it's important that we pay cash for our personal development"Being asked to pay, whether the student makes good grades or poor, has the effect of causing one to follow through with the course when he would otherwise drop it."He goes on to criticize the Public library system"there is one astounding weakness to this marvelous system— it is free! "Which provides an interesting commentary on a current hot button political issue - what Napolean Hill would have thought of free college? He probably would have thought it was a totally asinine notion.On FailureHe lists 30 common causes of failure, there's one that really jumped out at me, which Napoleon also emphasizesWrong selection of a mate in marriage. This a most common cause of failure. (p. 81)If you've ever read the classic book The Millionaire Next Door, in which they really exhaustively analyze the average millionaire in the United States, you know that one of the biggest factors in becoming wealthy is selection of spouse.He goes on to list another common cause of failure...Intemperance. The most damaging forms of intemperance are connected with eating, strong drink, and sexual activities. Overindulgence in any of these is fatal to success. (p. 82)It's interesting that temperance or Intemperance is a word that is almost completely forgotten by our society. When I was a younger man I seemed to attract a lot of friends who were bad hedonists, completely intemperate. They were fun to be friends with but over time I saw how self destructive their overindulgent impulsiveness was and how it put me at risk. Now I'm really repulsed by people that display intemperance.Invisible CounselorsThis is something pretty cool that can be added to your meditation practice...Every night, over a long period of years, I held an imaginary Council meeting with this group whom I called my “Invisible Counselors.” (p. 154)The procedure was this. Just before going to sleep at night, I would shut my eyes, and see, in my imagination, this group of men seated with me around my Council Table. Here I had not only an opportunity to sit among those whom I considered to be great, but I actually dominated the group, by serving as the Chairman. (pp. 154-155)I now go to my imaginary counselors with every difficult problem which confronts me and my clients. The results are often astonishing, although I do not depend entirely on this form of Counsel. (p. 159)My counselors would be Donald Trump, Stefan Molynuex (A philosopher) and Claus von Stauffenberg (the Nazi who tried to kill Hitler). Who would your invisible counselors be?On Aging?Napoleon Hill recommends that instead of being disparaging of getting older we should[express] gratitude for having reached the age of wisdom and understanding. (p. 176)I totally agree, I've really enjoyed getting older. When I was a quiet young man I had this interesting relationship with a Korean business woman, she told me something interesting; Getting older only sucks if you are stupid. If you are stupid years keep passing by and you don't advance in life, life doesn't get any better. Life actually gets worse. You become increasingly self delusional and bitter. However, if you are smart life just keeps getting better and better over time.That's totally been my experience.I said that I think I got more out of this book the first time I read it, that's because when I was younger this book gave me a lot of audacity to try things that were really far outside of the norm. It gave me the audacity to start a challenging career in sales when my peers were all starting college. It gave me the audacity to quiet my comfortable job in corporate America and start a business.Where I see a lot of value in this book is in what I will call temporal self auditing. This book contains at least a couple of lengthy questionnaires that really force you to face yourself, look at inner beliefs, outer behaviors and your position in life.This allows you to audit yourself and in the future you can look back and see how your beliefs and behaviors have changed. I've done this over the years and interestingly what you really see is that over longer periods of time your beliefs and deep desires do really manifest in the world.

Let me start by saying that I have read more than 5.000 books and most of them are self help books. Think and Grow Rich is one of the books that I have read, again and again, and can never forget. It is one of my top ten books.Napoleon Hill is a giant, and this book is one his best works of art. He has a special and very impressive way of writing that is hypnotizing to read, and just by reading it, if you are receptive, it can transform you. It is one of the best self-help books ever written and could literally be worth a million dollars to you! It contains the science behind science (that is, the way behind every invention), the art behind art, the secret behind religion, and the secret which can make you wealthy instead of poor.Here you will learn the secret of secrets. Throughout the ages men and women have recognized that secret and given it many names. Hindus and Buddhists call it “Karma”, psychologists call it “The Subconscious Mind”, Christians call it just “Faith” or “Belief”. But no matter what you call it, it is the same thing. For those who want to expand their knowledge on the subject, I would like to suggest you to do research about The Law of Attraction, White and Black Magic, Hypnosis, NLP, EFT, Tai Chi and Qi Gong, Yoga and meditation, Occultism, to read the Holy Bible, search books about Shamanism, Voodou, fasting and sleep deprivation, the mystical energy that resides in our spine called Kundalini and also how placebo works. The secret is the same no matter how you call it. It is the power of the Mind as Napoleon Hill says, and you will recognize it in every chapter. My advice is: apply it the time it comes in your mind and don't postpone even for a nanosecond. In this book Napoleon Hill makes it possible to apply this secret just by reading it alone, because his way of writing is tremendously hypnotizing.Every successful person has used the principles described in this book, either consciously or unconsciously. I remember reading about the legendary martial artist, actor and philosopher Bruce Lee, that this was the book he was always referring to. He copied quotes from it and kept them in his wallet to read when he was in difficult times. In my opinion, this book made him reach the Himalayas of success. But Bruce was not the only one. So many people have used its principles to raise to the top.Once you learn about this secret, you will understand that you can use it any way you want, not just for making money. You will understand that you can make yourself rich or poor, healthy or sick, miserable or blissful. You can create your heaven or you can create your hell. You are the sole creator of your life! You will understand that nothing is really forced on you. When you are in misery, remember, you have created it, and you can uncreate it because it is just your imagination... Heaven and hell are our own creations. In that very recognition something within you changes; misery is apart and you are separate. The bridge is broken. The second step is that you can create your joy, your delight. If you can create misery, then why can't you create joy? You create a climate and you live in it. You create your own world, you paint your own world! After reading this book you will come to know that you are the master of your destiny! Yes, it's that simple! Nobody is hindering you from achieving an outstanding life! Buy this book and let it change your life!Caden,Author of the book: “Your Life in Your Hands: Apply Your Power and Take Control of Your Destiny”

A Classic get rich book, will it get you rich? well...But it is interesting, you have to give it that.

It was a tough read for me, since I don't love the "thought game" books.But, I definitely believe the majority of what the author claims to be true.

Un libro espectacular con temas que jamás pensarás leer y que están relacionados con tantos frenos que no nos permiten avanzar ... Claramente se debe leer y releer, es un manual de ayuda para todos aquellos que tenemos ganas de crecer en el camino financiero.

Opens your mind

came in great shape

Great book, does not repeat itself to much, which seems to happen in most “self help” books. it does not go around in circles trying to convince you of anything, it tells you how to utilize yourself, your power and what can happen when you do.Definitely an eye-opener in many different ways.I had to look up meanings on quite a few words in the book, so if you’re like me and not a strong reader it can be a little confusing.Also I was not mentally prepared for the ending of the book, I had to take a break, in order to collect my thoughts.So be warned, it gets rough.All that said,10/10 recommend

My professor recommended this book and it’s no joke. I understand now why this is an iconic timeless piece. Change your money mindset and it will change you forever

It took me some on and off moment to go fully thru it and finish it. But i understand after finish it the importance of putting into action some of these principles.Will give it another try in the future, hopefully it will go smoother.

The manufacturer should clearly state that you need to buy one size LARGER than the pillow cover. I read some reviews that said to buy the same size as the pillow cover while other said to buy a size larger. I wish I had listened to those. I bought a size 20x20 for a pillow cover of the same size. I fluffed it, let it sit in the sun as instructed and even put it in the dryer as many reviewers said to do. It does not fill my 20x20 pillow cover so now I need to buy 22x22. I was able to return the 20x20, so am very happy.

I needed a pillow for a pillow cover, as a birthday gift for a friend. This pillow & the packaging are amazing! It's true to size ( 18"x18") & was packed incredibly well. Would highly recommend!!!

I like this pillow. I bought it as a gift to my friend ‘s daughter. It is so nice. Its cover is made of cotton-nice material. It looks great and is comfortable. I am a happy customer. Thank you for making such a good product.

The insert is of good quality. The packaging is ridiculous. It came as a tiny flat cube and it fluffed up to 18x18 just fine,but it was packed in 4 layers of heavy plastic from the shrink wrap to the final amazon shipping bag and this was a horrific example of the overuse of plastics into our already over polluted plastic filled landfills! The package for the pillow itself was made of a plastic material you could patch a roof with. All this packaging will never decompose and was beyond excessive. A simple recyclable box would suffice! Very disappointing. Someone needs to start making an effort to reduce, reuse,recycle and have a conscience about our responsibilities to our environment.

I received the pillow insert and fluffed it up, as recommended. It’s perfect. Fluffed up well, the cotton outside is very nice. Much nicer than the thin, flimsy, mesh type material used on other inserts I’ve had. It fit perfectly into the pillow sham. This insert had it all. Great quality product. There is not one thing I was disappointed with. Should I need an insert again, I will be ordering from this company.

What a fabulous pillow insert. I purchased an 18x18 and it was plump and full. I liked it so much that I'm purchasing a second in 16x16. With this fullness, I would recommend getting the exact size needed for your pillow cover and not stepping up a size. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend, not flimsy like some I've ordered. Fits in the pillow cover well, very pleased and would order again.

Great purchase. Ordered more in another size! High quality. Made well. Soft but have a perfect firmness.

I highlighted so much of this book I Know I need to read it again a few times. A small portion of the descriptions and perspectives are dated, but the meat is timeless.

Great book to own, read and share. The store owner is very helpful, a great communcative person with a concose intellect sense. Edward even suggested me a great second book to purchase at a great price. Defenitely will.order more on my next reads!

'Amazing' is an understatement for this book. I now have the power to make my dreams come true. The author gives his readers a practical, profound, doable strategy to get whatever you desire in your life. This book has stood the test of time and now I see why. If you want to change your life, read this book!!

Buy right now!! Will change your mindset and gives different outlook on life!! I am a completely different person from reading this book! Great author

I have read it many times and even how old it is now, it still rings true. It really is a great help to give you a boost for positive thinking and how your thoughts really do create physical reactions in the world.

If you're in the business of changing your life, I'm not sure what you're waiting for, but you need to buy this book. Each chapter will provide you with new insight to change life and perspective to help you achieve your goals. Go into this book being open-minded, and you'll get what you're looking.

Very nice looking, well built. Works fine. 4 stars because the description of the lamp and included instructions are not accurate. Description fails to indicate that it comes with a chain and mounting plate so I ordered them as well. Now Amazon says the mounting plate is not returnable. So don't order these items - they come with the lamp. Chain is about 4 ft long. Instructions indicate you take the bottom off the lamp to install the bulbs. You actually take the top off. For that,, you need a 6mm socket so be sure you have one. Even then, the paint on the nuts got scratched so we had to touch them up. Black paint was satisfactory. The mounting nuts that secure it to the box plate are also 6mm. The screws provided for mounting the canopy to the plate are quite short so I had to find longer ones. The ground wire for the lantern is separate from the zip-cord power cable and is bare copper. It will eventually turn dark since this is an outdoor lamp. Hope it doesn't turn green. I was going to change out the wire for one that included the ground but the holes it has to go through would not have been large enough.. All of this is pretty normal for a Chinese made item who's instructions are for a whole set of products but climbing up and down the ladder got a little old.

Once we installed this lamp, the look is beautiful. It gives a warm, "gas" light quality to our entry foyer. However, the package did not come packed properly. Luckily the lamp didn't get damaged. However, an earlier shipment had to be returned. Also, one of the parts for the lamp was missing. We were lucky to get an electrician that had the part in his arsenal of "spare parts". Amazon did credit my account for the price of the replaced part. I would suggest that the warehouse be more careful when packaging these lamps. Sold and shipped by Amazon. Once again, Amazon's customer service was excellent and they responded to my concerns. Again, the lamp is a lovely addition to my home and I would recommend it.

we bought this light to replace a can light on my front porch it only took my husband a little over an hour to hang. totally changed the look of the front of my house it is beautiful. totally recommend

They add to exterior decor.

It's better than I expected

This was perfect for hanging over my front door!

good

This book was the culmination of 25 years of research, and over 500+ interviews. Napoleon Hill has done a fantastic job of organizing his thoughts into the thirteen attributes found amongst wealthy men. It challenges you to become introspective, and evaluate and be honest with yourself. It opens the reader's mind to the ideas of removing fear, tapping in to the spiritual faculty of man, and organizing thoughts and ideas and knowledge into a plan of desire to bring about desired outcome.Desire, faith, auto-suggestion, the subconscious mind, the sixth sense; these are but a few of the powerful topics of study evaluated and analyzed in this easy-to-read book. I highly recommend all self-thinkers read this book. In fact, I believe at the tender age of 14, if all boys and girls read this book, we would have a tremendous growth in wealth across the globe. Why? Read the book! You will understand what I mean.The most powerful thing you can do is educate yourself, and think for YOURSELF. Hill has studied men such as: Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Theodore Roosevelt, Andrew Carnegie, George S. Parker, Henry L. Doherty, Wilbur Wright, Charles M. Schwab, Daniel Willard, Daniel T. Wright, Frank A. Vanderlip, Woodrow Wilson, Dr. Frank Crane, and MORE!Several of the topics like auto-suggestion, the discussion of the sixth sense, and the powerI found the concept of the "Master Mind" very enlightening. The idea of creating your group is not something new, but in evaluation, opened my eyes to the cosmic power of vibrations, shared and multiplied by positive and like-minded people, and how I have been missing out on this for most of my life!The idea of SEX TRANSMUTATION, is one that is making its rounds more recently amongst the red-pill community as semen retention, or loosely the "no-fap" movement. This vindicates the shared belief amongst woke men that our desire for sex when exercised with no discipline, leads to no purpose in life. But, when tapped and channeled creatively, can render us victorious in our careers, entrepreneurship goals, and CREATIVE abilities and fruits. It's PROFOUND, and I highly recommend young men and old men read and apply this concept.This book will only help you if you are receptive. Receptive to the to the ideas of spiritual higher power, or if you are aware of the "vibrational" frequencies emitted by our spiritual energy. It is loosely based on "The Secret" or " the Law of Attraction." The book shares themes found in meditative, spiritual, and higher power thought circles. Not surprisingly, I have had the benefit of sharing the advice of meditative faculties and effects in my overall life, and feel a sort of vindication to have stumbled on this book and Hill's learnings.The only reason I give it 4 stars is due to some grammatical typos, (way too many) for a professional book. That's not the reason I read this book, and overlooked it for the simple fact that I care more about the themes, the power held in the themes, and their practical usage when implemented into daily routines of thought, action, and planning.

Get the book, but before reading the book, watch the Earl Nightingale video primer about the book. Clearly one of the greatest self help, personal development, wealth building, self esteem building books ever written. Watch or listen to Napoleon Hills 17 Keys to Success on YouTube. It’s success class training at its finest.

Basically, it's a wake up call to me. I have been making way too many excuses. I don't get what I want because I don't know what I want because I keep allowing influence to decide. What the f*** do you want? Figure it out and then start making it happen. No one else can. Much Love 🤙🏾 and may you prosper.

I wish I had read this book in my 20’s …. I wouldn’t have wasted so much of my life wandering aimlessly…..

I really liked this bookI found it quite illustrating and useful.Inspiring and easy to read, once you start, it's so hard to stop until you finished itHighly recommended

This book is essentially a wake-up call from yourself. It's time to quit blaming others and allowing outside factors to hold you back. The result of more than 500 interviews and 25 years of research the author did a great job of structuring his ideas into the thirteen characteristics common to successful men. The book pushes you to reflect, assess, and be really honest with yourself. It introduces the reader to the concepts of getting rid of fear, utilizing the spiritual side of humanity, and putting thoughts, ideas, and knowledge into a plan of desire to achieve desired results.

Great book, great packaging, and all that, but if you struggle with small font, you definitely need a bigger one than what I got. If I wasn’t taking the trip that I’m taking tomorrow, I would have switched it for a bigger size, but I will pretty much just pull it close to my eyes to read.

Best book you could ever read. Especially if you’re thinking about starting your own business. This book is so inspiring and puts you into the right mindset to keep going.

Even though this book was first published long ago it's message is still great and valuable! I would recommend to anyone looking for a positive message to read.

This is an amazing gift for someone who is starting out in life after high school. It has certainly changed life and I am sure it will do the same for them.

I recently started reading the classic collection of finance literature and this one definitely deserves to be in the collection. I will make it a routine to re-read on an annual basis

Alright, so what's the "BUT" about you may ask? The book is overdone and rambles on with anecdotes and stories from random winners of chance. However, it does include a lot of vital information. Yes, there are meat and potatoes after all, and plenty of. The book can easily expell the 'sides' so to speak and leave in the information that would make this book less drawn out. If you can get past the fat, you'll quickly grasp the countless eye-opening phrases, and paragraphs that will have you running for the highlighter.

Most of the philosophies in this book are from 19th century but they are still so relevant.. we humans think we’ve evolved but the guy sitting in our head deep within is still the same.. only the material around us has evolved. One of the main things this book talks about over and over again is about having faith, desire, plan and persistence to focus on the input and the value it would yield..I think there is a secret in here and it requires intentional action and follow through to get results. I am using one of the gifts from the book to help me advance in my career to finally break through the chains and make a move towards the financial freedom.I’ll come back and add an update within next 6-12 months on my experience. Happy reading!

It’s going to be hard for people to approach this if they don’t already have an “evolved mindset” and seen the power of your thoughts work! While I didn’t agree with EVERYTHING in this book, it has a lot of great information to help you get out of a negative mindset and approach your goals with more positivity and a new perception. It has the capability to light a fire under you ! If you’re a pessimist you’ll naturally cling to only the things you don’t like about it instead of taking away anything useful. For instance, the part about me needing to be “sexed” properly lol. I don’t agree that anyone else at that capacity has the power to increase my success , I think that comes down to a sense of self in connecting to your own sexuality. But still a similar enough thought. I’d say about 85% of the book is helpful and I will probably recommend to others !
