The origin of this book is fascinating and dates back to Andrew Carnegie's meeting in 1908 with Napoleon Hill and Carnegie's subsequent sponsorhip of the young Napoleon Hill to write a thesis on American Achievement....Carnegie then introduced Napoleon Hill to Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and many other individuals of accomplishment as the young author catalogued the elements and principles that these great American achievers used to accomplish so much. His first great work LAW OF SUCCESS was published in 1926 and then in 1937 THINK AND GROW RICH was published while Hill was an advisor to then President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and both books were considered instant classics in the self development field.
W. Clement Stone read THINK AND GROW RICH in 1937 the year that it was published and was so impressed with the principles that he applied them with vigor and built (with an initial investment of $100.00!) the Combined Registry Insurance Company which later became AON Insurance Company. Aon was built by W. Clement Stone and his team and became one of the greatest insurance companies in the world. You will see the AON skyscrapers in Hong Kong, Chicago, and many great cities. W. Clement Stone was listed on the Forbes 400 and attributed his success to the principles he applied from THINK AND GROW RICH. Now that's a fantastic story of what can happen when these principles are applied consistently and aggressively.
In the early 50's Stone went to hear Napoleon Hill speak in Chicago and they instantly hit it off and worked together for years thereafter helping others to achieve their dreams. They taught the PMA Science of Success Course, went to prisons, held seminars, went on T.V. and radio, and passionately communicated the 17 HABITS of high achievers and brought this message to all that wanted a better life. This book adds to what was so brilliantly layed out in the books LAW OF SUCCESS and THINK AND GROW RICH and combines additional principles like the COSMIC HABIT FORCE and PMA. These 17 principles are just pure magic if applied with continuous action. I read the book often as a kind of mental vitamin and it helps me to keep my attitude tuned up. I highly recommend this book as you can well see. Read it with an open mind and re-read it to keep the principles fresh. Memorize the self motivators, and the 17 principles and keep at it. Great events will come to pass if you persist, and remember that ANYTHING THE HUMAN MIND CAN CONCIEVE AND BELIEVE THE HUMAND MIND CAN ACHIEVE WITH A POSTIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE. Onward and Upward! All the best, Gerald Chamales
I read this book when I was in seventh grade (before I knew it was a self-help book), this is where I learned about my fellow man, God, hard work, morals. So I have a Kindle and decided to read this again... only 30-years later. It was great to re-visit an old friend. It was great to get in touch with my sub-conscious, which showed me that I got a lot of my thoughts that I still live by today from Napoleon Hill and W. Clement Stone and this book. It still stands up today along with Dale Carnegie's How To Win Friends and Influence People.
These books have meaning because they are light and to the point. Not like today's books, claiming to have something new to offer. There is nothing new that needs to be offered. The good old adage of treating people the right way, that's all that needs to be learned. I flat out highly recommend this book!
Attitude is the key. However attitude must be combined with swift action. Life comes at you fast. If you don't make corrections to your course you will almost definitely end up where u do not want to be. Help yourself and help others. I plan to read this book at least one more time. Very encouraging.
I had some serious trouble at the beginning getting over Napoleon Hill's nomenclature. It seems a little too kitchy and hokey at times. But once I got past that it really opened up.
If you're at all interested in "this kind of thing" then do yourself the favor.
The narration is better than most. It's sufficiently well presented that the reader doesn't get in the way of the content, as happens so often with audio books.
