Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Hill's Think and Grow Rich! (1937) is one of the best-selling inspirational business books of all time and remains influential to this day. The foundation that bears his name has taken Hill's thinking and philosophy, updated it with contemporary examples, and published it under this title. Dale Carnegie-esque and user-friendly, this work contains practical advice for success. If some of these ideas seem familiar, it is because later writers have latched onto them and presented them in more abstract terms; but the advice remains solid. Of particular interest is the section on the major causes of personal failure. No one could go wrong trying to follow Hill's commonsense exhortations and principles. Good public library fare, especially where Hill's other works are in demand.

From Booklist

Librarians who have trouble keeping copies of the classic Think and Grow Rich stocked on the shelfnever mind keeping it from disappearing altogetherwill welcome this latest version of Napoleon Hill's inspirational, self-help advice. Even 50 years after its publication, Hill's major work is one of the most requested books in libraries, and business leaders ranked it as one of the most influential books of its kind in a recent USA Today survey. Using Hill's own words compiled from his various writings, editor Sartwell has distilled 17 essential principles of personal success and achievement. Many of Hill's original examples and practical suggestions are included, but Sartwell has also added a number of contemporary successs stories. Order extra copies!

There are thousands of self-help books out in the market and hundreds of self proclaimed "gurus" who have made a living by copying the wisdom in Napoleon Hill's books. As I went through some of those books I realized that there was not much in them that Hill had not already written about. I recommend quality over quantity. Instead of reading through many books, I recommend that you study the following works of Hill and internalize his wisdom:
1. The Think and Grow Rich Action Pack (1937) - I recommend the Action Pack edition,
2. Napoleon Hill's Keys to Success: The 17 Principles of Personal Achievement - this book,
3. Your Right To Be Rich [Unabridged] - this consists of 12 hours of live lectures covering the 17 principles, that Hill conducted in Chicago in 1954.
By internalizing, I mean studying in depth - analyzing the ideas, making notes and summaries. I own more CDs by Hill, but I believe that these 3 items make the perfect study plan on the Philosophy of Personal Achievement.
This philosophy is the end product of two decades of research conducted by Napoleon Hill. His research started when Andrew Carnegie (the steel tycoon who was then the richest man on earth) gave him the assignment of organizing a Philosophy of Personal Achievement. Hill, who was a poor journalist, armed with just an introductory letter from Carnegie, set out to interview over five hundred successful people including Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, John D.

"Napoleon Hill's Keys to Success" is one of those books that after you read it you begin to refer to the earlier part of your life as "before I read the book." Even before you finish reading it the first time, you will be a changed person - it's that incredible. I say first time because you will want to read it again and again.
Napoleon Hill's books have been a treasured part of my library. I've recommended this one to others countless times. I consider Napoleon Hill to be one of the earliest "proactive thinkers" in the world.
If you haven't read this book before, get ready for profound wisdom. Napoleon Hill makes it easy to understand that our thoughts are things and have God given powers, far beyond what is commonly taught by others. I can tell you from my own astonishing situations experiences that, "your success really is most definitely determined by what and how you think."
You will find that this exciting book becomes a part of you. Don't hold back - let it happen. In fact, you should spend 10 to 15 minutes every morning focusing your thoughts on the truths of this book, thereby allowing them to seep deep into your subconscious mind. If you do this I guarantee this wisdom will most assuredly bring you the success and abundance you deserve.
Enjoy the book and your new life!

The first batch of significant books that had the greatest influence on me in terms of attaining personal achievement includes mostly Napoleon Hill's books:

- The Law of Success;
- Think & Grow Rich;
- The Keys to Success;
- Success through a Positive Mental Attitude;
- Succeed & Grow Rich through Persuasion;

The others were from Clement Stone, Dale Carnegie, & Earl Nightingale.

That was the early 70's when I had just started work as a young engineer.

The author, Napoleon Hill, had impressed me most by his relentless dedication in spending some two to three decades of his life in pursuing & researching the success secrets of the rich & famous...with a little help from Andrew Carnegie, of course.

As matter of fact, many of the famous people he interviewed were also favourite role models of mine e.g. Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, just to name a few

Till this day, I have never forgotten what he said:

"The most powerful instrument we have in our hands is the power of our mind."

I have never ceased to be fascinated by the simplicity & the potency of his ABCs of personal achievement: CONCEIVE, BELIEVE & ACHIEVE!

It is certainly enlightening to note that even Stephen Covey had drew inspiration from Napoleon Hill's work even though he never made that credit. He only admitted that the 7 Habits had its origins from "200 years of success literature in the United States." That remark itself is self explanatory.

Anthony Robbin's Mastery program as embodied in his books as well as his audio/video resources is no exception, even though he has been influenced in larger extent by NLP.

Please be advised that this book is NOT WRITTEN BY NAPOLEON HILL. It is a rework of his writing of the other twelve books he wrote while his was alive. This book was published in 1994(per the published date in the book)and Napoleon Hill died in 1970.

If you are going to read and learn from Napoleon Hill, I suggest you buy the books he actually authored and not these rehashed, updated versions of his books. The twelve books Napoleon Hill wrote are: Law of Success(1928), The Magic Ladder to Success (1930 and if you are looking for information on Master Minds, this is the one to read), Think and Grow Rich(1937), How to Sell Your Way Through Life(1938), Mental Dynamite(1941), The Master Key to Riches(1948), How to Raise Your Own Salary(1953), Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude(1959 co-authored with W. Clement Stone), PMA Science of Success Course(1961), Grow Rich With Peace of Mind(1967), Succeed and Grow Rich Through Persuasion(1970)and You Can Work Your Own Miracles(1971, a year after Hill's death). These dates are per the Napoleon Hill Foundation.
