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 love this book. I have listened to it 3 times now I hope the 4th time I will be able to have a paper and pen with me. there is so much great information that I want to permanently write down because with all the information I have had so many great ideas come into my head.
Some of the stories were a bit difficult to form a modern day connection with as this book is rather old, but those few stories aside this was an incredibly helpful book.
this book is older then I don't know what and it's still relevant today I'm thankful I read it and I will continue to read it over and over again and again it's that good.
I have read (listened to) almost 52 books this year.. 1 per week. This is by far the best book. A must read for almost anyone who is either trying to learn, discover and attain success or just trying to be happy in life..
Regardless of when it was written, the story still applies. the narrator did well and kept my interest. I would recommend if your looking for a time-tested plan for success.
For maximum ROI I feel I must listen to this audio seven times, take notes and experiment with the instructions so that I may create my own personal experiences so that post my accomplishments I may share with the utmost credibility and value.
Portrait and Fine Artist and Avid Reader
Erik Synnestvedt did an excellent job reading this book. He used good voice control that kept you interested.
The book was written just after The Great Depression of the 1930s, however, much of its advice is still relevant today. There are a few dated areas, but there are small, minor, and far-between. This book is as good today as it was then.
Never get tired of this book, read the book several times.Will definitely be listening to this atleast a dozen times a year. I like the fact that this audio is read from the original book.
"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.
"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
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.
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.
"Very instructive, but there is more!"
As ever Napoleon Hill's ability to breakdown complex leadership principles is second to none. That said, much of the content comes from his earlier book "The Law of Success". In my opinion it is that earlier book that is the 5 star knock out punch. So in closing this book is certainly outstanding value - rich in content and practical guidance, but "The Law of Success" carries that bit more. The challenge is that there are one or two themes covered in greater detail in this book. If advising I would probably suggest listening to this book first, then the "Law of Success" afterwards to avoid any anti-climax. As the earlier book is simply out of this world brilliant.
"Thoughts are things. Things are thoughts"
Thinking and grow rich has profoundly positively changed how I think and visualise life. I am a thought-reality creator specialising in positive experience and reality.
"Worth the effort."
Not an easy book to listen to. Quite hard going in places but worth the effort.
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!
"The timeless classic"
without doubt the best audio book ever. I have the paper back book and listen and read to this at the same time.
There's something different each time i read/listen too it, it's never ending
i feel the words inside and it lights up my brain every time without fail
the greatest book ever written.
I am still digesting what I read and I keep going back and reading it every now and then. Everyone should do the same. This is a very powerful book and requires an open mind and patience to digest all the information.
All the characters were my favorites because even though they were placed in different situations they all ended up in the same place: being determined and succeeding. The most impressive two, however, were the little girl and the father who helped his son hear although he was born in conditions incompatible with hearing.
I liked how the voice was perfect for the book. It happened many times that I was looking for a book and didn't end up buying it just because the voice wasn't warming up to the topic of the book.
Life changing lesson
