Editorial Reviews

Review


"May I congratulate you on your persistence. Any man who devotes that much time...must of necessity make discoveries of great value to others. I am deeply impressed by your interpretation of the "Master Mind" principles which you have so clearly described."
--President Woodrow Wilson

"My Dear Mr. Hill: Allow me to express my appreciation of the compliment you have paid me in sending me the original manuscript of Law of Success. I can see you have spent a great deal of time and thought in its preparation. Your philosophy is sound and you are to be congratulated for sticking to your work over so long a period of years. Your students...will be amply rewarded for their labor."
--Thomas A. Edison

"My Dear Mr. Hill: I have now had an opportunity to finish reading your Law of Success textbooks, and I wish to express my appreciation of the splendid work you have done in this philosophy. It would be helpful if every politician in the country would assimilate and apply the 16 principles upon which the Law of Success is based. It contains some very fine material which every leader in every walk of life should understand."
-- President William H. Taft

"By applying many of the 16 fundamentals of the Law of Success philosophy we have built a great chain of successful stores. I presume it would be no exaggeration of fact if I said that the Woolworth Building might properly be called a monument to the soundness of these principles."
--F. W. Woolworth

"Dear Mr. Hill: Thank you for your Law of Success. It is great stuff."
--Cyrus H. K. Curtis, Publisher of Saturday Evening Post, Ladies Home Journal

"I know that you are doing a world of good with your Law of Success. I would not care to set a monetary value on this training because it brings to the student qualities which cannot be measured by money alone."
--George Eastman

"I know that your 16 fundamentals for success are sound because I have been applying them in my business for more than 30 years."
--John Wanamaker

"Mastery of the Law of Success philosophy is the equivalent of an insurance policy against failure."
--Samuel Gompers

Whatever success I may have attained I owe, entirely, to the application of your 16 fundamental principles of the Law of Success. I believe I have the honor of being your first student."
--William Wrigley, Jr.

From the Author

A Word From the Author In every chapter of this book, mention has been made of the money-making secret which has made fortunes for hundreds of exceedingly wealthy men whom I have carefully analyzed over a long period of years.

The secret was brought to my attention by Andrew Carnegie, more than half a century ago. the canny, lovable old Scotsman carelessly tossed it into my mind, when I was but a boy. Then he sat back in his chair, with a merry twinkle in his eyes, and watched carefully to see if I had brains enough to understand the full significance of what he had said to me.

When he saw that I had grasped the idea, he asked if I would be willing to spend twenty years or more preparing myself to take it to the world, to men and women who, without the secret, might go through life as failures. I said I would, and with Mr. Carnegie's cooperation, I have kept my promise.

Napoleon Hill, 1928 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


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.

Format: Hardcover
Napoleon Hill was commissioned by the richest man in the world at the time, Andrew Carnegie, to create an economic philosophy. Carnegie said philosophers had concentrated on morals, and there were plenty of moral philosophies, but not one economic philosophy, and it was a shame. Every person who had risen from poverty to wealth had to do it on his own, learning from the brutal (and slow) trial-and-error method. Carnegie thought that was wrong, and he challenged Napoleon Hill to correct it.
Carnegie then gave Hill letters of introduction to the most successful men of the time: Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, F. W. Woolworth, William Wrigley Jr., etc. Hill interviewed (and in some cases LIVED WITH) over five hundred extremely successful people, many of whom you have heard about, to discover what philosophy they used in succeeding. After twenty years of this kind of research, he created an adult education program. The writings for that program were eventually bound into eight volumes, and now they are all bound into one giant book. It's great. I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I know from personal experience that the principles Hill writes about WORK! And he is fun to read.

As the former publisher at Nightingale-Conant (world's largest personal development publisher), I have seen more real life success stories and testimonials from customers on Napoleon Hill's Law of Success and Think & Grow Rich books than any other success books or programs offered. It can be the extra edge you need to achieve the goals you want to reach. I know the power of the book personally...after reading it and following the principles I've started a successful small business and I'm on my way to creating multiple streams of income for myself! You can too!!

Laws Of Success
This book is a must read if you want to do anything worthwhile; while you here on this planet!
It sucks that most personal motivators today, such as Anthony Robbins, Brian Tracy, and men of the like, are taking all the credit for this book. Yea! They mention the man (Napoleon Hill) for his finds but they take the credit for being responsible for such a book available. I learned more from this book about this life and chemistry of every person and thing alive on this planet, from plant life, to animal life, than all my years in school classrooms.
High school students, College students, trade school students, people out there searching for their identities if you are, or have been raised in this world in a poor, or low middle class environment, the only real chance you have in this life is to get your hands on this book. While many people out there are trying to screw you of your belongings, such as money, reputation, self control and other personal possessions, this book will guide you through a hard core situation such as; depression, self control overeating, drug abuse, and all of the bad habits we acquire here on this planet, from TV commercials and Radio commercials and some bad influential so called friends.
Big companies spend millions of dollars on paid advertisement because they have read this book from cover, to cover and over and over and now they are using it against you.
I can almost guarantee you that a lot of big companies such as Mc Donald's, Starbucks and companies alike, have mastered this mans philosophy and now they are using against you to get you to spend all of your money on their over priced service.

I was a young, single mother headed who knows where. After reading this masterpiece in less than a year I had direction. In 5 years I had accomplished goals, and now I run my own company and am contributing to the world a worthwhile service.

Format: Hardcover
This book is by far one of the best purchases I've ever made. This book not only teaches you valuable lessons about life, but allows you to break yourself down to the building blocks that make you up and reevaluate yourself. If you're wondering about the time frame that it was written in making it irrelevant in some cases, the answer is no. It is still incredibly relevant. The only information that may seem out dated are dollar figures and references to things like World War I, which at the time the book was written happened practically yesterday.

I am currently finishing up the 15th lesson now and as soon as I finish the book I plan to start over and read it again. I just generally enjoy this book and I have a feeling I'll learn just as much from it the second time around.

I've bought numerous items from Amazon for many years and this is the first review I've ever written. That's how much I like this book. Everyone should buy it.

This is the most incredible book I have ever read on the subject of personal growth and achievement. The way Hill writes takes a little getting used to, but after reading it a very short time anyone can understand him. This book is a total eye opener to how the most successful people of this and any time period think. He also gives very detailed "HOW TO" information for each of his Success Principles. This book was written in the 1930's but the information is more relevant than ever. A MUST READ for anyone wanting to succeed in any endeavor. TEN STARS!!!
