I am a California Process Server based in Los Angeles County.
Listening as opposed to reading Think & Grow Rich has brought so many opportunities to me. I can now go for a run and focus on my learning or I can go for a bike ride and continue to grow in the wisdom Napoleon Hill offers in his 13 principles written in Think & Grow Rich.
In comparison to Think & Grow Rich First Things First by Steven R. Covey is also a good listen if your are into a new perspective of time management.
My favorate scene is when Dale Carnagie was making a speech and Charles Schwabb was in the audience.
I will apply all 13 principles of Think & Grow Rich to my life.
If you want to learn how to get anything you want in life, not just money, you have to listen or read this book!
If you are looking at a very useful book to help you take real steps toward your life success, you need this book!
Full of practical insights, step by step instructions, and very useful insights.
Read this book!
I know this is a classic, but I found it very hard to relate to at times based on just how old the examples were. Overall the principles were good though.
I am living my life in such a way that when my feet hit the floor in the morning, satan shudders and says, 'O crap, she's awake!'
I am enjoying this audio, again and again. It is so much more enjoyable to listen to nightly. If you've tried reading this book as prescribed, there are some nights you are too tired to think about reading. This audio makes committing to nightly "readings" easy.
I liked the historical vantage point. It was written after the great depression and it was really interesting to see the perspective from that time period.
Many of the issues discussed were repetitive. You can only say
It was just a boring read. The stories were not really amusing or engaging. It was really like reading a research paper (which, I guess, technically that is how it came into being).
Oh, god no! People would die of boredom!
I remember seeing this book on a TV ad promising that it would change anyone's life... no, it really will not. It does not give you any information any well rounded, self starting individual does not already possess.
I AM recommending this book to everyone I know.
I have a 1960 edition of the book and have read it many times. My wife and I are now having our kids listen to the book. It is helping them with their vocabulary while learning things that can help them their whole lives. Great Book! Excellent Listen!!
Although written in 1937 after the worst years of the Great Depression the story will resonate with people in today's troubled economic times. The author was way ahead of his time not doubt influencing the whole self-help industry incredibly. He intimately studied hundreds of the most successful people in America at the time (i.e. Carnegie, Ford and Edison) for over 20 years meticulously gathering data. The result is a clear understanding of what all these successful people had in common. He spells it all out for you. These principals are timeless. Very motivating read that encourages deep thought and introspection. Well worth a listen. It will change your life, on what degree depends on how much you incorporate and follow through on the wisdom provided. Cheers.
I plan to listen to this once every 6 months or so. It is now my favorite book next to Dale Carnegie's HTWFIP.
It puts life into perspective proving that anything you strive for is attainable. It's all in the people skills.
Knowledge is potential power; knowledge put into practice is power.
This book is superb a must have for your audio library as well as hard copy for quick reference. This teaching should be thought in every school.great!!!!!!!!!
Great listen. Especially the old school language. Lessons learnt are foundations for life. A must read for anyone entering the world of work.
