To this day, he delivers an important message to all that's so powerful and when used correctly, it will guide anyone to obtain nothing but great success. Imagine, having the power to deflect all negative energy by learning to utilize all positive energies, in all areas of your life. Think and Grow Rich, is captivating and enriches your mind by introducing you to recognize your strengths through understanding your weaknesses.

Understanding the importance of having a great sense of strong values and morals benefit your life in many ways and are essential in keeping your mind fit for life. This book is empowering and will hand you a motivational key to jump start your engine in your life's goals. It did for me! Think and Grow Rich, reminds us to always have goals in life and to never give up on working towards them. Like Mr. Hill mentions time and time again, have a main purpose in life, know what that purpose is, and do this by finding that burning desire deep down inside, that desire you feel you must share with the world. Think and Grow Rich, remains the one book that delivers this strong message and applying the principals taught in this book will only bring rewarding experiences and help you reach any goal or dream you want in life.

This version of 'Think and Grow Rich' by Napoleon Hill is antiquated and obsolete. It contains numerous errors. It contains language and phrases that are sexist and racially offensive. It contains ideas, specifically concerning scientific matters, that are just plain wrong and no longer valid. There are a couple of good editions of 'Think and Grow Rich' available. Either of them is preferable to this old and tired one.

    At the skeptics.

    Yes, napoleon hill did not become rock or carni, why you may ask? He wanted to write a book on how to do what you really want to do! Did he do it? I think the book that still is around can tell you how his dream/wish came out.

    One idea: First, you must believe.

    Refers to the original, unabridged version, in audiobook format: The entire premise of this tome comes down to a single word: belief. If you absolutely believe you will accomplish something, odds are you will. This book drives this concept home, time and again, with plenty of good examples. Think positive, have a goal, believe you'll succeed, and move toward it relentlessly equals success. In a nutshell, that's it.

    However, the author is quite fond of trying to explain grander concepts in the non-scientific, hyper-babble common to early brain theory, like:

    "the ether" - a magical, universal place where inspiration lives
    "universal mind" - we're all connected this way, living and deceased
    "thought impulses" - can be read or broadcast to others
    "the forces of infinite intelligence" - the beehive of thinking (see "universal mind")
    Etc., etc..

    Quite distracting from the point the book is trying to make about believing in yourself and succeeding, although I'm sure it must have been less so when first published. If you can get past these coined, half-baked, buzz-phrases Hill uses throughout, and focus on the real message here - the power of belief in your ability to achieve a goal - this audiobook is well worth the price of admission. It's mostly very well presented, and that's why I gave it four stars.

    A Classic, qualified

    This review is for the audio version. I've read some reiviews in which people claim Napolean Hill's work to be outdated. I disagree. The book is old-fashioned, and may offend some readers, but I think his ideas are as sound as they ever were. First, this is not written in an Anthony Robbins, touchy-feely kind of style. Hill wrote this in 1937, and the narration reflects the depression culture with a stern, commanding and unforgiving tone. Second, don't expect any expamples involving women; Hill's target audience in 1937 was men. Next, The audio version is abridged, perhaps heavily so. Part of the editing is to make room for excerpts from some of Napoleon Hill's speeches. The speeches are interesting and Hill's Narration is a nice contrast to that of the paid reader. Still, I have to wonder how much more is included in the print version? I think the audio version is the perfect way for me to expose myself to this material. I can get the basic overview during my commute, and decide later if I need to buy the book for an exhaustive study. Perhaps what is most interesting to me is the overlap in content with other success books I have read. An example is the importance of written goals. Differnet success books place varying dergees of emphasis on the importance of written goals, but the message is everywhere is the same. In conclusion, read this book with an open mind regarding the time in which it was writen, and compare all advice with other sucess books you have read.
