The 13 Steps to Riches described in this audiobook offer the shortest dependable philosophy of individual achievement ever presented for the benefit of the man or woman who is searching for a definite goal in life. It comes directly from the experiences of hundreds of America's most successful men.
Hill interviewed 504 people, including Ford, Wrigley, Wanamaker, Eastman, Rockefeller, Edison, Woolworth, Darrow, Burbank, Morgan, Firestone, and three United States presidents. The process of conducting these interviews required an investment of 20 years of Napoleon Hill's life.
This audiobook will guide many to success, and has sold millions of printed copies for nearly three quarters of a century. Yes, one can gather from the title that the starting place for wealth is in a person's thoughts - and this title is the source for most of today's motivational speakers. So why not go back to the original source?

I would recommend this book to anyone looking to take the risk of investing in oneself to excel in life. While listening to this book I came across scores of people who use, and strongly believe in, Hill's philosophies and all of them are wildly successful. This book asks you to have faith in yourself and take a chance in life... The biggest chance you'll likely ever take. It's definitely worth the read!
It amazes me how relevant the content of this book is. Technology has changed, but people really haven't. If you are serious in making positive changes in your life, this book is a must have!

At this point, no. He's given no concrete details. Just, "You need to want it! If you desire it, and have a burning desire, then it will come true." This is exactly the kind of stuff that people derided "The Secret" for. It's a 9 hour book, so I'm guessing that it goes from magical and macro to something a little more applicable and grounded?
I've just finished reading "How to Win Friends and Influence People" which was practical and entertaining and inspiring in a lot of ways. "Think and Grow Rich" has just been a lot of macro talk about being passionate and how "if you want something bad enough, then you can make it happen." The weirdest part is that Hill continually says that we have to realize the great secret ourselves. That it's a part of each chapter, but he won't tell us what it is. We have to figure it out. That doesn't sound sincere to me. It sounds like someone trying to insure themselves against criticism. "The book didn't work for you because he didn't discover the secret that we swear is here but that we won't tell you."
None, so far.
Going to keep listening, maybe my opinion will change.
One of the greatest works of art. This book must be read/listened from everyone who is on a journey to find himself and who is searching for the key to his destiny! Enjoy the ride...
Believing in yourself is one thing, this book is another. Whenever a book needs to user half of the first chapter to tell you everyone who endorses it you should be wary. In short I stopped reading after the book jumped from psychological concepts, to the mystical ether you can use to make things magically happen for you.
I greatly appreciate the practicality of it. it speaks not only of yhe fanciful but the realistic. a man can tell himself anything but he must create and execute a good plan.
Remains in print, a best seller, and sells over a million copies a year almost 80 years after it was published. I think only the Bible has done better. N. Hill breaks down human nature to the easiest definition and explains why we do what we do and how to overcome those issues that drive us to failure. some material is dated (such as a woman's role in the success of a man) but it was written at a time when such school of thought was the norm. This is the book that started all motivational thinking and took 20 years to research and write.
"A business classic!"
This book is an absolutely fantastic look into the what people now call the ?millionaire mindset?. The book is the combination of 20 years of studying some of the greatest inventors, investors and Business men of the time and in fact the century, people like Henry Ford, Alexander Bell, Thomas Edison, and Andrew Carnegie. It was actually Andrew Carnegie who encouraged Hill to write the book and study the great minds of their time.
The book goes through topics such as Imagination and discusses how once a person can imagine something on ones mind then it is possible, Desire, in which he tells of the deaf child who finally heard and how if a person desires something badly enough he can and will achieve it, auto-suggestion and how having positive thinking can affect outcome, procrastination, imagination, the brain itself and fear. The most interesting section, however, I believe is on his ideas of sex transmutation; turning sex drive into a positive force instead of a destruction one. For the 1930?s his ideas were certainly revolutionary and for the most part most of them still hold. Some of the content is a little dated but in general Hill was on the money!
In essence this book is what Richard Parkes Cordock tried to do with the ?millionaire MBA Business Mentoring Program? and his inspiration for the millionaire upgrade in which Hill?s book is constantly referenced.
I honestly believe that this book should be compulsory for anyone studying business in either High School or University. It for me is one of the best books of in the area of business motivation.
The narration at times can be a little flat but it certainly gets the main points across. If you were looking for a book with a little bit more humour and life then Brian Tracey's "Success Mastery Academy" is certainly worth a look and similar topics are discussed.
Best self help book ever. Changed my way of thinking forever. I am looking forward to a new rich life. Thanks Napoleon for being so clear, concise and truly inspirational.
The original,and outdated, yet still one of the greatest books available. I really enjoyed the narrator, what cannot be said of the other versions. If you're considering this book, choosing this version is a good idea.
"must read book"
I am sure if you as somebody who is millionaire he would had read this book. This is a book which should be read atleast 10 times. If anybody read this book 10 times and apply its principle he will surely be rich in any area he desires.
This is one of my fabourite book and everytime I read this book I find new ideas
It's a classic on the printed page and every bit as good (probably even better) on audio as you can listen to great inspiration whilst driving, lying in bed or jogging/ working out!
"great mind set "
it great for releasing limiting thought which hold you back
great book happy i listened to will be coming back
I was amazed by this book. It is a bit outdated with some ideas, but overall it is one on most amazing book I ever read. Thanks.
But I've read better. A little repetitive so listen once and bookmark the useful bits
Great book. Very inspiring. Enjoyable as well. Will definitely recommend. Must keep and listen to several times.
I wish I read this book long time ago and it has changed my thinking and view point of what's possible
