Meet the Author

Napoleon Hill (1883-1970) was born in a one-room cabin on the Pound River in Wise County, Virginia. He began his writing career at age 13 as a "mountain reporter" for small town newspapers and went on to become America's most beloved motivational author. His classic work, Think and Grow Rich, continues to inspire millions to believe and achieve and is a cornerstone of the modern self-actualization movement. Before passing, Hill established the Foundation as a nonprofit educational institution whose mission is to perpetuate his philosophy of leadership, self-motivation, and individual achievement.

    Bunk

    I was highly disappointed when I read this book. Napoleon Hill is dead on on some very obvious and commonsensical things but way off on tons of others. Yes, autosuggestion & visualizing your outcomes are good exercises but are common sense for most people unless you have super low self-esteem. Nothing new here. Tips on how to write a resume and apply for a job are helpful to the would-be job applicant, but that isn¿t why you bought this book. My biggest bone of contention is due to the metaphysical/new-age overtones throughout the book. Napoleon Hill espouses a concept called ¿infinite intelligence,¿ but never defines it. It is something more like an omnipresent god-force or life force. This is total hogwash, and won¿t solve any MAJOR problems. You don¿t hear of scientists tapping into ¿infinite intelligence¿ to seek out a cure for cancer. How come I can't tap into this mysterious force, to say, tell me the winning lotto numbers or pick winning stocks? Maybe because it is total nonsense. Hill also commits the sunk cost fallacy in the story he tells where somebody stopped digging just three feet short from striking gold. While I see his point that many times just a little more effort will result in a sizeable payoff, sometimes one must know when to stop a futile endeavor. Hill advocates being persistent, but says nothing about how to identify situations when it should be stopped and a new goal should be sought. Hill is a strong advocate of positive thinking. Who isn¿t? Did I have to read this book to find out that it is better to think positively than negatively? No way. While positive thinking is good for many things, it cannot cure Parkinson's Disease or Alzheimer¿s. Napoleon Hill says you can be anything you want to be. Total bunk. If this is true, why didn't he become the next Carnigee or Rockefeller? Does this statement not apply to him, and if it doesn't apply to him, why should it apply to others? Hill also commits the post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy, which is ¿Someone did x to become successful, therefore x caused their success.¿ You can't use an example of one person who achieved sucess against tremendous odds and say that therefore anyone can surmount these odds. We hear of the few who are successful against the odds but not of the many who fail. That is how the real world works. Not everyone can be a Bill Gates or a Micheal Jordan. Hill mentions nothing about realistically assessing your skillsets against your goals. He just says go for it. That is stupid. Better advice is to try lowering your standards a bit and you will find you can achieve your goals much easier. Maybe you can¿t build a huge software corporation but you can have a thriving small consulting firm. I don't care how positive you are, there's some things you can't do because of lack of competency. That¿s the sober truth, and it won't sell books.

    The Original True Classic

    This is one of the greatest self-help books ever, back in the the original 1937 text. Next to the Bible, this is my favorite book. I was introduced to Think and Grow Rich when I read former world champion and International Boxing Hall of Famer Ken Norton's autobiography entitled 'Going the Distance.' Norton shared in his book that he read Think & Grow Rich repeatedly and it changed his life. Norton's book states he was given Think & Grow Rich to read after he suffered his first boxing defeat and had to start over. Norton then went on a fourteen fight winning streak that lasted over three years, including a huge upset over Muhammed Ali for the heavyweight title. This is an outstanding book that embodies Andrew Carnigie's philosophy of achievement to help individuals reach their full potential and succeed. Think and Grow Rich is one of the all time greats.

    A reviewer

    There are some very helpful recommendations in this book such as visualizing and affirming your success. A positive attitude is considered almighty. But written later, two excellent books, Learned Optimism by Martin Seligman explains the advantages and disadvantages of pessimism and optimism and Optimal Thinking: How To Be Your Best Self shows you how to make the most of your thinking, any situation, your life and career. I would read all three books.

    To: Mr. Bunk

    Under organized and specialized knowledge this book explains how a person can assess any lacks of knowledge or weaknesses in making their plan. Henry Ford had next to no education yet at the push of a button could summon the right person to supply him with any amount of knowledge he required. The same is true in todays world with the advent of the internet. The first thing you need is a positive attitude which supercedes any negatives. Nothing is perfect and one can find faults with anything if they so choose.

    This man knows what it takes to succeed.

    Napoleon Hill was a consultant living in the White House when FDR was leading the nation through the Great Depression. It was while he was in the White House that Hill wrote Think and Grow Rich. More than twenty years before, Hill was commissioned by the richest man in the world at the time, Andrew Carnegie, to research and develop a philosophy of success so that every person didn't have to learn through the hard process of trial and error every time. Carnegie thought it was a shame that the accumulated know-how of each successful man went the grave with him. Carnegie gave Hill letters of introduction to five hundred of the most successful people in the country - Henry Ford, John Wanamaker, Thomas Edison, and the list goes on - and Hill interviewed these men extensively, sometimes living with them for a time. I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I am an expert on what is effective. The principles Hill put in Think and Grow Rich will definitely help you become successful.

    Think and grow in many areas of our lives ;-D

    This book should be on every bookshelf in every home. The principles that are taught in this book "Think and grow Rich" are more about the directions of life than just the collection of riches.

    This is a book that needs to be digested and not simply read casually.

    Eternalize this book and you will give your life new direction and meaning.

    A Good Visual

    The thirteen steps presented by Mr. Hill are to the point and very honest. His book is not some egotistical scam for our money, thank goodness. I should think that any one who is supposedly 'down on his luck' needs to purchase this book and maybe redirect his steps.

    This Book Will Change Your Life...If You're Ready!

    I picked this book up on my way to ordering THE RICHEST MAN IN BABYLON. I figured, it's not that expensive and it has a catchy title. Little did I know that this book would change my life and mindset. I recommended it to everyone I could think of, but only a few jumped on it and were as excited as I was. You will get out of this book what you expect. Be OPEN and prepared to make the ultimate mind shift!

    Groundbreaking

    This is the foundation for any reading about success and achievement. Reading one chapter per day to mull over and internalize what is being said brings new direction and expands the mind. Despite the date of first printing, the lessons are timeless and can be used by all. A wise investment and one to be re-read numerous times.

    Read this book ONLY if you...

    ...want to succeed in life and in business! This is a classic book. Before the so called "success gurus" around today. Napoleon Hill is the ORIGINAL success motivator. I've personally read the book Think And Grow Rich numerous times. I asked for (and received) the original CD of the book so that I could listen to and be inspired while I am driving. I can't imagine anyone listening to this CD and not being inspired! Mr. Hill's story is truly fascinating. If you've never read the book...you need to own the book AND the CD! Surround yourself with his teachings! And do yourself a favor...stick with the original recording. The 21st Century version is okay...but doesn't beat the original. http://www.facebook.com/photographybyski

    Motivational book that goes beyond what the title promises.

    This book has the plan for achieving more than wealth - for achieving whatever you desire. Certainly, you can apply the principles within with an eye towards creating wealth, but you can apply the same principles towards improving your life, finding a job, getting in shape, whatever you want. When I look back at the things I have accomplished in my life, and the things I have failed to accomplish in my life, I see that I used the principles in this book without even knowing them. Basic fundamental stuff for reaching you goals, whatever they may be, it is well worth the investment.

    Great but not the best

    This is a great positive thinking book. Though Mr. Hill has written an inspiring book, I must say I much prefer 'Optimal Thinking' by Rosalene Glickman. She has taken the next step past positive thinking into maximizing your thinking.

    Conceive + Believe = Achieve

    Think and Grow Rich claims to reveal the secret of Andrew Carnegie's success. Maybe it does, maybe it doesn't, but the secret appears to be something along the lines of 'have a goal and work really hard to meet it.' Hill stresses the importance of a positive mental attitude, and makes a convincing case that one's subconscious mind is at least partially responsible for one's success and failures in life. At times, the book wanders into some unusual territories (armchair psychology, paranormal phenomena) but it was probably considered 'cutting edge' 70 years ago when it was first published. As for the title, it's probably worth mentioning that the concepts imparted by the book don't necessarily have to do with material wealth but could be applied to just about any endeavor.
