Did I discover the "secret" that will launch me to world-renowned success? Not really. Do I have a better understanding of the psychology behind success or failure? No more or less than I could read on one of the million blogs out there.
Basically, it comes down to: "Anybody can wish for riches, and most people do, but only a few know that a definite plan plus a burning desire for wealth are the only dependable means of accumulating it." Meaning: set goals, work hard, network, stay humble etc.
I mean sure, the book contains a lot of practical advice on being successful, but it's mainly focused on the psychological motivation behind it. Although most of it's sound, there are some sections that are of questionable scientific validity and some pure pseudoscience. Hill believes that all human brains are connected by the "vibrating energy of thought", and that people can connect to the "Infinite Intelligence" - a cosmic force permeating all matter and energy. It's a lot like the meditation and "The Secret" type thinking.
He talks a lot about the possibility of telepathy, clairvoyance, ESP, precognition. Then Hill goes on to describe his imaginary meetings with a group of notable dead and living men he called his "Invisible Counselors". I was waiting for Miss Cleo to appear at the end.
I can't say I found new or interesting advice. In fact I would say this book is probably the first book a lot of online entrepreneurs read and paraphrased it to their liking. The only thing about reading this I would say is beneficial is just to name drop that you've read Napoleon Hill and feel like you're part of a select club.
