Editorial Reviews

Review

"During the past twenty-five years I have been blessed with more good fortune than any individual deserves but I shudder to think where I'd be today, or what I'd be doing if I had not been exposed to Napoleon Hill's philosophy. It changed my life."
--Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World
--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

Based on the Andrew Carnegie formula for money-making, THE MASTER-KEY TO RICHES describes in step-by-step detail today's greatest practical philosophy of success....This amazing philosophy, culled from the success experiences of hundreds of the world's most powerful and wealthy men, will show you how to succeed in any walk of life. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

More About the Author

Napoleon Hill was born in 1883 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. His work stands as a monument to individual achievement and is the cornerstone of modern motivation. His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich, is one of the best-selling books of all time. Hill established the Foundation as a nonprofit educational institution whose mission is to perpetuate his philosophy of leadership, self-motivation, and individual achievement.

Take the necessary steps and you will see a great change in your life.

This book by Napoleon Hill complements his "Think and Grow Rich" book rather well.

It will be a book that I read over and over again as there is so much to absorb.

Absolutely, the best book I've ever read. It seems to take Think And Grow Rich to a new level. I won't guarantee that if you read this book it will change your life. I will however promise you that if you follow the method and practices in the book, it will change your life. The book is easy to read and as far as I'm concerned is the Bible of Self Improvement. You do have to work hard at the practices in it though. We all know that nothing comes easy. I feel so strongly about this book that if anyone has any questions and wishes to contact me, please do at simonjhudson@hotmail.com

Received a personal recommendation from a man who, beginning back in 1972, applied all the pricipals Hill has laid out in this book, particularly the chapter on "Self Dicipline"... which in less than three (3) years time ( that's 36 months...less time then some car financing contracts!!) brought this man from being an alchoholic transient fruit picker...to where he is today...a totally financially free man with personal asset value of over $22 million dollars & an increasing personal annual income of over $4 million. This man, still today, carries & reads this book with him in his briefcase...wherever he travels.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book contains much of the same material as his other books I've read: Think and Grow Rich, and Law of Success. These same concepts have been used by virtually every motivational prophet ever since. The cool thing about Hill, he pioneered this stuff in the early 20th century. I'm quite sure he made a bundle from his great books, and deservedly so.

Obviously the advise given in this genre of book will be of absolutely no value unless applied step by step. Take the necessary steps and you will see a great change in your life. Whether or not you will become financially wealthy--who knows. One thing for certain, you'll be better off than you would have had you not taken the steps outlined.

You have to have a certain level of maturity or fandom to really appreciate Napoleon Hill. Many of the pearls of wisdom he has only make sense in hindsight. If you're adding this book to your Napoleon Hill collection, you'll love it.

If you've never read Hill before, you might have a hard time adjusting to him... and in that case, this review is meant for you.

The subject of this book is supposedly the business philosophy of Andrew Carnegie, as requested by Carnegie. I don't think this essay was quite what he wanted, though. The book may have some jewels of ideas in it, but it's so horribly written that they'll slip past you without notice, or be so mangled that you just won't care.

I don't really have the overly paranoid "Satan-is-coming!" view of this book that the reviewer a few slots before me does, but I suggest you read his qualms - it's a good overview of the truly weird New Age-ish approach this book takes. Instead of saying, "Be grateful for what you've got," Mr. Hill suggests you sit down with an imaginary "Eight Princes" around a table once a day, each named for something you're grateful for, and thank them. Um. Yeah. Loads of that sort of thing in here.

And the whole book reads like an infomercial. "We'll get to the Master Key soon... but first... let me tell you about this other exciting opportunity!" In fact, he tells you the Master Key in the very last sentences of the book(!), I suppose so you'll bother to read the rest.

The Master Key is absolutely a golden idea, truly. I just wouldn't suggest *this* book as an introduction to it.

Spoiler: don't read the rest of this review if you don't want to know the juicy tidbits.

This book brought tears of joy to my eyes as I read a story about an acorn on page 115. It was a simalar happening in my life. This is another Great book by Napoleon Hill that I have added to my library of my most prized collection of Great works of the masters

If you want all of the areas of your life to improve, not
JUST your financial situation, make sure that you read this
book! Hill spent a lot of years researching the information
he shares here, and he became very wealthy because he followed
his own advice.

Money and time well spent.

This book is a must read aside from your bible. It will absoultely and totally change your life. How I got through life without this book is incredulous. Do yourself and anyone you love a favor and get this book, and read it at least every 6 months. You will never be the same again.

Say hello to someone who has been using the principles of this book for the past 28 years -(since 1970). No, I'm not a trillionaire yet, but then maybe I don't need to be. But, this book has been one of the foundational pillars for whatever project I have undertaken, and I tell you when I get serious about what I am doing and really focus on putting the principles to work, looming/towering obstacles become as blades of grass, and paralyzing fears become repugnant vapors (i.e. farts) at worst, and allies at best. I would recommend a self-study course of The "Think and Grow Rich" Action Pack, with this book, with "Think and Grow Rich" being the parent book.
