Napoleon Hill was an American author who was one of the earliest producers of the modern genre of personal-success literature. His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich, is one of the best-selling books of all time. Hill's works examined the power of personal beliefs, and the role they play in personal success. He became the adviser to President Franklin D. Roosevelt from 1933-36. "What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve" is one of Hill's hallmark expressions.

I love this book it's very informative as well as an eye opening experience that you have to read in order to understand. He explains why Fear is such a big motivator for all people and how industries are created by FEAR. The fear of loss is a Bigger motivator than the possibility of gain....... sad but very true
