More About Napoleon Hill
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 lumber yard, and attended law school, before he began working as a journalist for Bob Taylor's Magazine--a job that led to his meeting steel magnate Andrew Carnegie, which changed the course of his life. Carnegie believed success could be distilled into principles that any person could follow, and urged Hill to interview the greatest industrialists of the era in order to discover these principles. Hill took on the challenge, which lasted twenty years and formed the building block for Think and Grow Rich, the wealth-building classic and all-time bestseller of its kind, which has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide. Hill devoted the remainder of his life to discovering and refining the principles of success. After a long and rich career as an author, magazine publisher, lecturer, and consultant to business leaders, the motivational pioneer died in 1970 in South Carolina.

Recommend by Clement Stone Jun 27, 2007
I would like to tell you what
Clement Stone (a self-made billionaire) have to say about this great Book:
When I read Think and Grow Rich, its philosophy coincided with my own in so many respects that I, too, started the habit of helping others by giving them inspirational self-help books.
The one principle that particularly helped me was Napoleon Hill's mastermind principle - two or more persons working together in harmony toward a common goal.
It made me realize that I could employ others to do much of the work that I was doing, and thus I would have more time for additional activities.
For I did think - and grow rich.
And my sales representatives who were willing to relate, assimilate, and use the principles, they, too, thought and grew rich. Each of them received the book from me.
Things began to happen - big things.
Remember, we were coming out of the Depression.
The very title of the book had appeal.
Its contents were electrifying and motivating to readers who were searching for financial wealth and business success.
Whenever I made a speech, I would try to share this new working tool with my audience by giving a few copies of Think and Grow Rich as door prizes.
The giving of self-help books became a habit.
Now I make it a practice to send three or four inspirational books each year to all sales representatives, office personnel, and shareholders of the companies I manage. I also send inspirational record albums and the magazines Guideposts and SUCCESS unlimited.
In The Success System That Never Fails you read stories indicating how this literature has changed the lives of many persons for the better.
But to me it is truly amazing that, although America has been fortunate enough to develop a group of authors who have the power to motivate the reader through self-help books, so few take advantage of them.
Beginning with the distribution of Think and Grow Rich, my sales managers began to be builders of miracle salesmen, and our salesmen began to make such phenomenal sales records that the results achieved seemed unbelievable to those who haven't learned the art of motivation.
Within two years after I received Think and Grow Rich, I again had over a thousand licensed representatives.
My bills were paid.
I had a savings account and other equities, including a winter home - a modern duplex at Surfside, Florida.
I bought the duplex because the rent from one apartment paid for the entire property.
Although there is no real way to prove it, I believe that Think and Grow Rich has inspired more persons to business and financial success than any book written by a living author.
Here's the story of one such person.
Think and grow rich Jun 27, 2007
Think and Grow Rich teaches "The Thirteen Steps to Riches".
It offers many questionnaires and practical exercises in addition to all the text.
It gives you clear guidelines on how to set goals and reach them and how to make clear plans to follow. You are shown how you can realize your highest potential, and succeed in anything you set your mind to.
It also teaches you not to give up and to see all mistakes as learning opportunities.
Napoleon Hill teaches that successful people never consider temporary failure as a permanent defeat.
"Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure." ~ Napoleon Hill
Over 25 years went into the study of more than 500 of America's most successful businessmen at the start of the 20th century.
Hill took on the assignment from Andrew Carnegie, who recognized Hill's unique abilities.
Carnegie was, at the time, the richest man in the world. He started life as a Scottish immigrant with no money and worked his way to become a steel manufacturing magnate.
Carnegie believed that anyone could achieve the same success as him and wanted his success formula passed on to the world.
This became Napoleon Hill's life task.
"I believe that the true road to preeminent success in any line is to make yourself master of that line." ~ Andrew Carnegie
The success formula that Napoleon Hill developed from his research is as relevant and usable now as it was 100 years ago.
Maybe it is even more relevant, since now people like you and me start to understand that it is not magic and lucky stars that make people rich, it starts with the way they think.
Think and Grow Rich teaches you to think differently, and if you are looking for financial freedom, this book is a must!
Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill is fabulous Jun 1, 2007
Somehow I had missed this book and author too -- but that was a mistake. It is a wonderful book full of sage advice we all need.
I am buying copies for each of my 5 grandchildren, and will send them on occassions such as birthdays, graduations, Christmas and other gift times.
There are typo errors obviously in the original, dating from before there were such things as spell checkers. They do distract, and I wish the restorers had fixed them in the process of reissuring this 1937 classic.
A terrible edition of a wonderful classic book Apr 21, 2007
This book has a very modern looking cover (although the $20, $50 and $100 bills circling it make you think that "rich" refers only to "money," when in fact it means richness in every aspect of life that means anything). However, when you open the book, you find one of the worst designed books I have ever seen.
This is nothing but a verbatim, almost facsimile copy of the book published by Napoleon Hill back in 1937 -- inside it looks old, it reads old, it has the same typos, antiquated terms, and other mistakes that Dr. Hill and others have corrected in subsequent editions through the years. The side margins on the pages are so tiny it is virtually impossible to make notes anywhere. It is clear the publisher was not interested in reader convenience or production values, but only in keeping the pages as few as possible to maximize profits.
Almost any other recent version of "Think and Grow Rich" that I have seen is far superior to this unimaginative one published by BN Publishing Co. The book contains wording that today is considered sexist, racist, or obsolete. The book lacks an index, unlike at least two other recent editions published by Aventine Press and by Tarcher. It also does not have an appendix.
