About the Author
Napoleon Hill was born in 1883 in a one-room cabin on the Pound River in Wise County, Virginia. From these humble roots he rose to distinction as the author of the motivational classics The Laws of Success and Think and Grow Rich. Hill passed away in November 1970 after a long and successful career writing, teaching, and lecturing about the principles of success. His lifework continues under the direction of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, whose goal and mission is to assist people throughout the world to reach their highest level of personal achievement and self-fulfillment.
