this is the book that started it all for every Success teacher/guru . It is the cornerstone and the standard to which all self help books are based. It is an excellent listen . Worth every credit. This is a must have for your audio library
Yes. Erik is an excellent narrator.
No. There are lots of good findings and ideas in this book. However, most of it should be scrapped because Hill has interpreted all of his research from an incorrect world view. He talks of evolution and cave men. He reduces God to a non-personal energy. He is "out there" on telepathy. He says sex is merely biological when it is clearly spiritual. To discern the truth, one must read carefully.
Nothing. He's great.
Yes but only as an opportunity to learn something about the process of movie production itself.
Greetings. My brother introduced me to Audible in 2011. Since, nothing but enjoyment. Hopefully my reviews are very useful to you. Enjoy!
Both I would consider both great.
Yes and in addition to that once every 6 months. It's that impactful.
Must have for those that want self development.
Yes! It's at the pinnacle of teaching someone how to attain success.
Having a burning desire for what you want and transmuting that desire into it's monetary equivalent through persistance.
His son born without hearing capacity (physical equipment to support hearing) but through desire he learned to hear through bond conduction of sound.
It was an epiphany! I'm 50 years old now and I'm just acquiring this knowledge.
Wish it was part of my high school's curriculum.
The stories in this book will help you to understand the trials many amazing people have gone through and give you an understanding that you can do what you want as long as you commit.
I listen to this book over and over again...my only complaint is that the chapters do not match what's in the book and that makes it a bit difficult to follow along with the written copy which is now in the public domain....this is a MUST READ for anyone going to high school, college or school of hard knocks. Live it and become successful!
Haven't but his voice is awesome to listen to and follow along with.
This was disappointing. The description I read had given me the impression that this was like a compilation of advice and mini bios of the successful men mentioned, most of them from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, just before this was written. Instead I got an inane self-help book. Which was hardly helpful, and only rarely gave me new food for thought.
Some of the things that I felt were so awful were just out of date and wrong, including the sexist attitude and some if the "science" cited. Other perspectives were still somewhat relevant, given the parallels that might be drawn between the Depression era and our own recent 'great recession' and the general attitude of the public loss if faith and distrust of Wall Street and political leaders... but that aspect was hardly redeeming.
There were a few surprising and mildly interesting anecdotes, such as about Ex-King Edward and Mrs. Simpson, Ghandi, Ford, Schwab, and others. But mostly it was just babble about generally obvious paths and obstacles applicable to any kind of goal one wants to achieve.
If self help and repetitive mantras, long lists of things to practice, and fears to conquer is what you want - then by all means this is for you. It put me to sleep, and when I did manage to stay awake I found it generally frustrating and useless. The narrator at least was not inappropriate for such a book, but there wasn't much in the way of great dialogue or depth of emotion to make a voice really take the gold medal. And like I said, with the help of his boring subject-matter, he put me to sleep.
I only paid a few dollars for this on sale, but even so I think I will be returning it. Thanks for nothing, Carnegie and Hill.
This book was so informative and explained in detail how to reach your goals. It is very important to study this book over and over again to really get the concepts down because of all of the information. I have ready many many books on this topic and this is by far one of the top books that showed me the path to success. I own the audible version and the kindle version. It is a must read!
That being rich is more than just money.
That anyone could use the information in the book to have a richer life.
A man who spent his lifetime seeking for answers on personal development and patters of how rich people think and behave couldn't go in vain. "Think and Grow Rich" is the manifestation of all the passion and purpose Napoleon Hill put into this book. By following these obvious, yet unshakable principles, one will most definitely pave his way to success, fulfillment and prosperity. However, it takes a lifetime to master those. With this book's company the journey becomes far easier and more enjoyable.
