"Think and Grow Rich, first published in 1937, took more than twenty years of research to compile. Napoleon Hill was a journalist and writer who later served as an advisor to President Franklin D. Roosevelt from 1933 to 1936. His big break came with his interview of Andrew Carnegie in 1908. Intrigued by Carnegie’s assertion that the path to success could be broken down into a simple yet comprehensive formula, Hill accepted Carnegie’s challenge to study and interview more than five hundred extremely successful individuals to determine to what they owed their vast achievements. This masterwork identifies thirteen principles that every person should adopt if they are serious about achieving success—all are empirically based in the aforementioned decades of research. Hill has synthesized what wealthy and/or exceptionally successful individuals have in common. This classic guide is one of the bestselling books of all time, having sold twenty million copies by Hill’s death in 1970."--

I'm currently reading this book. This is a great book for entrepreneurs. My family has started a reading book club and this is the first book that we are reading. Love his perseverance.

This is basically the original self help book, which works both for and against it. This book was written before self help authors realized it was more profitable to praise people for 'raising their consciousness' than actually expecting them to do work, and so the book gives practical advise. But at the same time, this book is the original self-help book and thus most of the books that followed ripped off Mr. Hill shamelessly, making much of this familiar reading if you have read any self-help book ever. And finally it is an old book. The author actually knew Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and President Franklin Roosevelt. This means that much of what he recommends is no dated, either in application (hiring a typist for instance) or in cultural assumptions (the latent sexism and prudish puritan protestant assumptions for example). You could do worse than this book, but keep in mind the context if you choose to read it.

I was reffered to this book after reading 'Rich Dad Poor Dad' Very much like the book 'the secret' I believe this book inspired the makers of the best selling book 'the secret'
Not a bad read. I didn't finish it though I found I read to many of these kind of books. Maybe pick it up later.
