Publisher's Summary

Think and Grow Rich is the number-one inspirational and motivational classic for individuals who are interested in furthering their lives and reaching their goals by learning from important figures in history. The text read in this audiobook is the original 1937 edition written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie, and while it has often been reproduced, no updated version has ever been able to compete with the original. It has been used as a roadmap to achievement by countless individuals.

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?

    "Timeless"

    I downloaded the unabridged for a reason: I did not want a messed-with update and I like my information raw. Not unlike why anyone would want an unabridged version. There is another benefit to getting this unabridged version...it's hysterical!

    The references to a bygone world and its expressions are borderline ridiculous. You'll love that they hadn't learned the word "resume" and call it a "brief." Or, that African-Americans are "Negroes." If you think 8-track tapes are funny, this book is calling radio an emerging medium. I mean, this is pre-World War II we're talking.

    However, it is also timely. Napoleon Hill published this volume following the Great Depression. Here we are post-recession/post-bailout. A lot of what is true then is true now. And this is where the crazy-fun ends and the real purpose for this book begins. For a pocket-sized volume in print, or a couple of hours audio, the author manages to get "cosmic" and organic, all while keeping it elemental.

    In his elemental breakdown, Hill keeps it straightforward, pulling no punches. It's the best roadmap I have seen on my success journey. This is the parent to all other success-based books.

    "Narrarator is Horrible"

    This narrarator pronounces Andrew Carnegie's name incorrectly throughout the whole book! Extremely annoying, so much so I am purchasing another audio version with a different narrarator. Buy another audio version. Think and Grow Rich is an incredible book, but this narrator is no good.

    "Good summary of principles for success."
    Who do you think would benefit most from listening to Think and Grow Rich?

    I think newbies to business and management books should definitely come to this book first. It's a classic. However, if you've been reading business and management books a while, there's nothing new here, and possibly some of the principles may be outdated or not in vogue.

    "not my cup of tea"
    Would you try another book from Napoleon Hill and/or Erik Synnestvedt?

    The methodology might work for others but not my thing. I prefer action over dreaming. No I would not try another title


    Would you ever listen to anything by Napoleon Hill again?

    No I would not listen to another title from this author


    What three words best describe Erik Synnestvedt’s performance?

    Nothing to write home about. I can't get past the content to give a fair rating


    Who do you think would benefit most from listening to Think and Grow Rich?

    No opinion, I am not qualified to make a call

    "To out of date"
    Any additional comments?

    I have read a copy of Think and Grow Rich at least 5 times and thought I would get the audio just to keep the info. fresh. This version is very similiar to the 1930's version and is to out of date to concentrate on. ie: look for jobs as a type setter or in radio.

    I highly recommend Think and Grow Rich - Just get a updated version!

    "Nope....not really worth my time or money"
    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It was disappointing, I was hoping for more applicable exercises but this fell short. Also, it would probably be best in paperback and not audio.

    "Writen in the 1930"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Of all the business books I have bought this was a total waste of money


    Would you ever listen to anything by Napoleon Hill again?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of Erik Synnestvedt’s performances?

    No


    What character would you cut from Think and Grow Rich?

    The whole book


    Any additional comments?

    Why would this book be pushed to the top of the list as a business book to read? I am all most sure that someone bought the right and is just making a buck. I will not trust Audibles recommdations again.

    "I am sure it was great (even better) in the day"
    If you could sum up Think and Grow Rich in three words, what would they be?

    When this was written, I am sure it stood out above all other. With all of the leadership & management books out today, I would say it is pretty on par... but pretty amazing considering when it was written


    Has Think and Grow Rich turned you off from other books in this genre?

    NO


    What three words best describe Erik Synnestvedt’s voice?

    Good


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No

    "I was expecting more"
    What would have made Think and Grow Rich better?

    the time period of it being written makes some of it irrelevant.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Napoleon Hill again?

    probably not.


    Any additional comments?

    there are better more recent books to deliver this message - 7 habits etc.

    Would not recommend. Talks and talks but doesn't actually say anything. Just keeps saying that if you really listen you will learn the secret.

    "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.

    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

    What made the experience of listening to Think and Grow Rich the most enjoyable?

    The fact that what was being explained seems like absolute common sense and easy to do - if you do it


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author


    What about Erik Synnestvedt’s performance did you like?

    I very much enjoyed listening to this book because of him


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, although I couldn't as it is very long.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the early development of an area of success that is now highly studied and utilised across the world. I have used these principles since I was 19 and I stick by their results.

    "MUST READ!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Think and Grow Rich to be better than the print version?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What about Erik Synnestvedt’s performance did you like?

    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.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Life changing lesson
