Description

NEW 2013 EDITION WITH ADVICE BY OPRAH WINFREY, WARREN BUFFETT, STEVE JOBS AND SAM WALTON
"What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve"

OVERVIEW
Think and Grow Rich is one of the most successful personal development and self-help books ever published. With over 15 million copies sold, this worldwide blockbuster bestseller was written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by a suggestion from Andrew Carnegie.
THIS NEW EXCLUSIVE EDITION updates Hill classic text for today, with success quotes by such inspirational leaders as OPRAH WINFREY, WARREN BUFFETT, STEVE JOBS AND SAM WALTON which exemplify the ideas presented by Napolean Hill in this book.
Think and Grow Rich is the result of more than twenty years of scientific research based on Hill's close association with a large number of individuals who achieved great wealth during their lifetimes. At Andrew Carnegie's bidding, Hill studied the characteristics of these achievers and developed 16 "laws" of success intended to be applied by anybody to achieve success. Think and Grow Rich condenses these laws further and provides the reader with 13 principles in the form of a philosophy of personal achievement.

EXCERPT
"IN EVERY chapter of this book, mention has been made of the money-making secret which has made fortunes for more than five hundred exceedingly wealthy men 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 of a century ago. When he saw that I had grasped the idea, he asked if I would be willing to spend twenty years or more, preparing myself to take it to the world, to men and women who, without the secret, might go through life as failures. I said I would, and with Mr. Carnegie's cooperation, I have kept my promise.
This book contains the secret, after having been put to a practical test by thousands of people, in almost every walk of life ...
This single application of the secret, by that young man-- Charles M. Schwab-- made him a huge fortune in both money and OPPORTUNITY. Roughly speaking, this particular application of the formula was worth six hundred million dollars. These facts ... give you a fair idea of what the reading of this book may bring to you, provided you KNOW WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WANT."

    The first time reading this book, I missed the whole purpose of its intent. And ended up wasting years, doing the wrong things. I.e. Focusing on the negatives in my life, allowing my fears to run rampant, not learning from my mistakes. As embarrassing as it is to admit it, that was my life. Now I've implemented a vast portion of the concepts in this book into my life. Too soon to boast of my successes, it's a work in progress right now!

    I just read this book for the third time, first in 1968, second in 1982, and today in 2015. This is the first time that it made sense to me. Napolean Hill is a really advanced thinker and confident observer. Your mind must be very open in order to receive his wisdom.
