IN EVERY CHAPTER of this book, mention has been made of the money-making secret which has made fortunes for more than 500 exceedingly wealthy people whom I have carefully analyzed over a long period of years. The secret was brought to my attention by Andrew Carnegie more than a quarter century ago....
This book contains the secret, after having been put to a practical test by thousands of people in almost every walk of life. It was Mr. Carnegie's idea that the magic formula which gave him a stupendous fortune ought to be placed within reach of everyone who does not have time to investigate how successful people make money.
From the Editor’s Foreword:
The edition of “Think and Grow Rich!” you now hold is the “Original Version, Restored and Revised™”....Hill first published “Think and Grow Rich!” and its money-making secret in 1937 at the depths of the Great Depression. In 1960 he published a revised edition, which deleted many sections that appeared in the original. Much of this deleted material focused on...the environment of an economic disaster. These and other changes were made so as not to “date” the book. Copies of the 1960 edition and its subsequent printings have, until now, been just about the only ones available since the 1960s. Ironically, because of the enormous economic upheavals, dislocations, and uncertainties that have swept America and the world – including the near collapse of the world economy in 2008 – much of what was omitted from the 1960 edition turns out to be incredibly relevant to circumstances and conditions that prevail today. “Think and Grow Rich!” in its original form speaks as clearly and meaningfully to people in the 21st century as it did to those in the early and later 20th century―and perhaps more so....
This edition is revised also in that it is the first fully annotated version of “Think and Grow Rich!” ever published, the first with footnotes, endnotes, and appendices, and it contains the first comprehensive index to assist readers in using the book more effectively....
While his message itself is timeless, many of the persons, events, and circumstances he discusses...are no longer familiar to most readers. “Think and Grow Rich!: The Original Version, Restored and Revised™” aims―in the sense of a “revised standard version”―to make all of these things as clear as possible without in any way interfering with or disturbing the integrity and message of the original work. --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.

First published in 1937, this 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. Rockefeller, George Eastman, William Wrigley Jr. and Charles M. Schwab. Hill then revealed the priceless wisdom of his research in the form of the thirteen steps to success (in Think and Grow Rich) and the seventeen principles of success (in courses and lectures he conducted).
The concepts taught by Napoleon Hill transformed my life. Some of these include developing a definite purpose, building a Positive Mental Attitude (PMA), channeling the power of the sub-conscious mind and dealing with adversity. Everything he wrote about or talked about is thought provoking. He was wise, humble and funny. His philosophy is universal; he did not mix it with religion. The riches he referred to were more than money, for the Philosophy of Personal Achievement can be applied to anything in life.
Hill was well ahead of his time. This book has a chapter dedicated to some of today's most important issues - Specialized Knowledge, Decision Making, Imagination and Organized Planning (in which he deals with Leadership). He also has principles for Teamwork, Creative Vision, Health, etc.
This is a classic, and hence the examples are old (not to be confused with outdated).Read more ›
I would recommend this CD to you only after you have heard the 9 CD set that contains twelve hours worth of live lectures in Napoleon Hill's own voice. The set is called Your Right To Be Rich and was recorded in 1954 in Chicago. In this, Napoleon Hill talks about each of his seventeen Principles of Personal Achievement. The set is amazingly inexpensive and well worth the investment in cost, time and effort.
Christianity - and it is not what you would expect
Lincoln slavery and a united North & South
Philipine representative that excited his people to freedom
Earth - high vibrational frequency (correlates a lot with the quantum physics of today)
School and education - most of what is taught in school does not help a person succeed in life.Read more ›
Reading "Think and Grow Rich!" gave me a crutch to lean on as I forced myself out to pound those doors where the potential prospects were. If my family was going to eat, I had to convince people to buy cemetery property 30 or 40 or more years before they would need it. The Six-Step Success Formula the book contains helped me to realize that there was a way even for an uneducated lunkhead like me to make it like the big guys. I followed the success formula faithfully, and, lo and behold, my whole life turned around.
Two of my most useful tools in the book are the poem "My Wage" ("I bargained with Life for a penny...") and "If You Think You Are Beaten" ("Life's battles don't always go to the stronger or faster man..."). I truly believe that Dr. Hill has the same message the Bible has for us. It was just little easier for me to apply. I went on to build the largest cemetery organization in the country starting out from my basement on Concord Avenue in Anderson, S. C. In 1970, we sold 30 cemeteries to Service Corporation International, making it possible for them to become the largest funeral-cemetery company in the world. I served as President of their Cemetery Division for three years.
I'm now 82 years old, living comfortably on the shores of Lake Hartwell with my wife of 62 years.Read more ›
