A perennial best seller in the self-help field since its first publication in 1937, Napoleon Hill's THINK AND GROW RICH sets down the basic principles of success, showing how to apply them not only to business and careers, but also to life and relationships. In 1908, Hill a journalist, was commissioned by the great American business tycoon and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie to interview giants such as Ford and Rockefeller, as well as other business leaders and politicians, about how they were able to achieve. Hill distilled this wisdom into his own organization plan, which emphasizes a positive attitude, visualization, and focusing. THINK AND GROW RICH served as a model for many books that came later, and its basic teachings still have power.

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.
