We are pleased to present this never before published collection from the one and only, Napoleon Hill.
Along with other never before published material, this volume includes the speech that inspired the worldwide bestsellerThink and Grow Rich.
With a foreword by Napoleon’s grandson Dr. J.B. Hill and introductory comments by Don Green, Director of The Napoleon Hill Foundation, personal letters from family members and Senator Jennings Randolph, this fascinating exploration of the speeches given by the pioneer of the personal development movement is packed with a wealth of information.
It is a revealing look at one man’s quest for understanding why some men succeed, why others do not, and what makes success something that can be replicated.
This collection will provide you with some of Napoleon’s finest speeches including:
- What I Have Learned From Analyzing 10,000 People
- The Man Who Has Had no Chance
- The Commencement Address at Salem College in Salem, West Virginia, 1922—likely his best-remembered and most- influential speech.
As W. Clement Stone and thousands of others can attest, Hill succeeded in this venture, and we now have a success philosophy that Andrew Carnegie once saw as a possibility.
The pages within this book will tell you of the origins of a personal development legacy.

About the Author
Napoleon Hill was born in 1883 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. Hill passed away in November 1970 after a long and successful career writing, teaching, and lecturing about the principles of success. Dr. Hill’s work stands as a monument to individual achievement and is the cornerstone of modern motivation. His book, Think and Grow Rich, is the all-time bestseller in the field. Hill established the Foundation as a nonprofit educational institution whose mission is to perpetuate his philosophy of leadership, self-motivation, and individual achievement. His books, audio cassettes, videotapes, and other motivational products are made available to you as a service of the Foundation so that you may build your own library of personal achievement materials… and help you acquire financial wealth and the true riches of life.
Don Green, a resident of Wise, Virginia, the birthplace of Napoleon Hill, brings nearly 45 years of banking, finance, and entrepreneurship experience to his role as Executive Director of the Napoleon Hill Foundation. His first youthful business venture was charging admission to see his pet bear—yes, the living, growling kind! Since 2000, Green has traveled worldwide and used his finance skills to grow the Foundation’s funds in order to continue the Foundation’s educational outreach to prisons. Green has both modeled leadership skills as a CEO and taught them through the PMA Science of Success course at the University of Virginia’s College at Wise. Don specializes in discussing his personal experiences in leadership and providing audiences with proven methods of applying Dr. Hill’s success philosophy to business. He was recently featured in a presentation on the Importance of Entrepreneurship in a National Economy by Dr. Peter Yun at a United Nations Forum.

Keys to Help You Develop and Attain a a Lifelong Philosophy for Success In the Introduction to “Napoleon Hill’s Greatest Speeches” Don Green, Director of the Napoleon Hill Foundation highlights the life and accomplishments of Napoleon Hill to validate his powerful influence and impact on today’s motivational speakers, business consultants, life coaches and personal mentors. The same passion and rhythm of his delivery, his wit, and “spellbinding oratory” that mesmerized the audiences of his speeches is evident in the printed pages of these speeches. Hill has a unique gift for reaching into the heart of the individual reader and implanting hope, self-confidence, and the promise of fulfilling personal destiny. Hill explores the scientific discoveries of how the brain functions including how we can unite the secret of focus and the power of concentration with aspects of faith which blend spiritual, physical, and mental forces. Two important take-a-ways from the book that I want to incorporate in my life are the reminders that: “your attainment and achievement will be limited only by the limits of your imagination
