Overview

Finally back in print, this true lost classic records Napoleon Hill's first, fateful encounter with industrialist Andrew Carnegie, where the young Hill learned the secrets to winning at life.

Returned to print after many years of unavailability, here is the one-and-only trade edition of a treasury of wisdom. Think Your Way to Wealth captures Napoleon Hill's initial encounter with Andrew Carnegie, who revealed the money-attracting strategy that Hill later popularized in classic books like Think and Grow Rich and The Law of Success.

While working as a reporter for an inspirational magazine in 1908, Napoleon Hill chanced upon an opportunity that gave direction to his life. The young writer landed an interview with industrial giant Carnegie. Hill had just one key question for the magnate: What is the secret to your success? Carnegie's response electrified Hill and launched him on a lifelong mission to distill the steps to success into a clear, definite protocol that could be used by any motivated man or woman.

Think Your Way to Wealth is Hill's vivid account of that seminal meeting. It captures Carnegie's initial advice, how-to's, practical steps, and concrete directions-all of which formed the basis for Hill's groundbreaking books, and jump-started the field of business motivation.

Originally published in 1948, Think Your Way to Wealth has been out of print and unavailable for many years. This new Tarcher Success Classics edition reproduces the complete, original text just as Hill first presented it. The dialogue between Hill and Carnegie represents an invaluable, irreplaceable playbook of success strategies that can change the life of any reader, just as they changed Hill's life that day.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The ripple effect of Napoleon Hill's success mantras began with a personal experience. Working as a fledgling reporter on a magazine early in his career, Hill received a plum assignment: the opportunity to interview rags-to-riches business titan Andrew Carnegie. What Hill took home from that dialogue changed him forever and sparked a book-writing career that created a self-help industry. In this book, out of print for decades, Hill describes the meeting that changed his life and, indirectly, the lives of millions of readers. Napoleon Hill's most deeply personal book.

Meet the Author

Napoleon Hill was born in 1883 in Wise County, Virginia. He worked as a secretary, a "mountain reporter" for a local newspaper, the manager of a coal mine and a lumberyard, and attended law school, before becoming a journalist for Bob Taylor's Magazine-a job that led to his meeting steel magnate Andrew Carnegie in 1908, which changed the course of Hill's life. The record of that fateful meeting is preserved in Think Your Way to Wealth. What Hill learned that day from Carnegie formed the building block for his landmark works The Law of Success (1928) and Think and Grow Rich (1937). After a long and illustrious career as an author, a magazine publisher, lecturer, and consultant to business leaders, the motivational pioneer died in 1970 in South Carolina.

    Highly Recommended

    He has great views on things. Not everyone agrees with this type of thinking, but I have has some experiences with health and I didn't realize this was a real thing, so when I stumbled onto this type of thinking, it all made sense to me. Now, I just need to transfer my thinking from health to wealth, and I hope this book helps!
