Think and Grow Rich is the best motivational literature that I ve come across. I was involved in a certain marketing stint during my engineering, and this book was suggested to me by a friend, who is today one of the finest motivational speakers. The book presents the essential commodities for success, in the simplest terms possible. The book is build with research conducted by Napoleon Hill for over 25 years, interviewing successful people like Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell to name a few. --Santosh J K on 03 Mar 2013
The story goes like that, i was once wondering in the street mhatama gandhi road or like that which connects ahmedabad railway station to Bhdra kali temple in 1982. In between the road there was one bridge below which one second hand book seller was sitting with a pile of old books with rate as rs two each book. I bought ten books and one of them was this think & Grow rich. since i was engineering student at that time therefore i replced word money with knowledge. This worked well and still i remember the book which has astonishing effects and rejuvenate your action in desired directions to acheive any goal properly thought and decided by you --HARISH KUMAR..on . 03 Sep 2012
This is a very good inspirational book. This edition contains commentary adding more examples of today. It will definitely change the way you think. I firmly believe that the methods described in the book can make anybody who follows them extremely successful. A must read for anybody who wants to be successful. I have just finished reading it, and I am going to go over it again. This is not a "get rich quick" book. --sapan maniyar on 12 Mar 2012 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Be prepared, therefore, when you expose yourself to the influence of this philosophy, to experience a changed life which may help you not only to negotiate your way through life with harmony and understanding, but also to prepare you for the accumulation of material riches in abundance. Teaching, for the first time, the famous Carnegie formula for money-making, based upon the thirteen proven steps to riches.
Napoleon Hill's works examined the power of personal beliefs, and the role they play in personal success. "What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve" is one of Hill's hallmark expressions. How achievement actually occurs, and a formula for it that puts success in reach for the average person, were the promise of Hill's books.

I hope to update this review when I find a less crappy copy of this book, but avoid the version with the black cover with money on the bottom. (See pictures)
Pg113 "before Lord Cornwall is surrendered" - Should be "before Lord Cornwallis surrendered
Pg 115 "penalties of an Mt of Henry VIII" - Should be "of an Act of Henry VIII"
Pg 119 "The habit of decisions acquired" Should be "The habit of indecision acquired". This one is critical as the context of the message is completety changed with the wrong word.
All I can add further is that "Think and Grow Rich - The Complete Classic Text" published by Tarcher Peguin & "Think and Grow Rich The Orginal Classic" published by Capstone seem to be the original text based on the 1937 edition.
Hope this helps others as it has been extremely frustrating studying this great book and finding errors in the print etc.
While this book is powerful and instructional it is not a magic wish book. It is a huge arrow pointed in the right direction and a good cornerstone for a success library.
It breaks down several chapters concerning approaches to creating wealth. The most unique aspect is that this book doesnt define the one sole chapter that has "the way". Instead It leads you through all the chapters and somewhere in them you formulate your personal concept of your success plan.
He then moves through the steps to achieving your goals and acquire wealth along the way. You start with desire. You have to want something. Then you visualize it and believe you'll get it. Tony Robbins does a bit of a variation on this. He calls the 'desire' a decision. When you think about it, that's what the desire really is. You decide you want something or you're going to do something. You might decide, "I'm getting a better job." You could even say, "I'm getting a better life," and it will work.
You simply have to figure out what it is you want, visualize getting it, and then set to work planning how you'll get it, and then start working. Nothing comes to him who just visualizes. You have to be active. Sometimes things will come to you in unexpected ways, and it will work on anything, large or small. You might decide you want to find a certain item in the store. You'll find it, and you won't have to vigorously go searching for it. You'll just end up in the store that has it.
Other times, for bigger things like a job, a car, a new house, etc., you'll be working along and opportunities will come up, often times without you even realizing that the opportunity is getting you to the thing you want. It's very hard to explain, but you'll understand what I mean if you start using these principles. I highly recommend this book. If you can find the a 1937 version at your library, I'd get it. If not, this one will work just as well. I highly recommend it. You can change your life for the better.
