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?

for a book that was written in 1937 is still holds worth today. this will be a book that I will always turn to in times of self-improvement
Great book, definitely worth listening no matter who you are! Especially if you want more in life.
Maybe but I doubt it
Are you kidding?
Why? I could barely get through Chapter One - which 1/2 of it is irrelevant and a waste of time. Seriously - if you are considering this book - start at least 30 minutes into Chapter One. The minutes before it are endorsements and pats on the back for the Author. If I wasn't driving, I would've fell asleep. Finally got to Chapter 2 - I just can't take it anymore. The narration is dull and lifeless making the content seem to drag on forever.
Pissed off because it seemed to drag on with nothing that was relevant.
This book is the author's life's work. There is an abundance of timeless advice, and there's some peculiar entertaining fragments of pseudoscience indicative of the era in which it was published. It is a personal growth book. I think that it was very effective.
If you have problems of starting things and not finishing them or continual Procrastination Habits this book is a "Must Read", it blessed me real good and helped me as well :-)
The top earner in my company claims to have read this book over 100 times. listening to this version over and over has gotten me through many months of tedious work. Now I am excited about my future and working to retire from my job in my early 30s!
"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!
"I love this!"
The narrator was great, nice to listen and enyou time with a wonderful book! I highly recommend this book!
This book is great for people who want to achieve whatever goals and desires they have set. It's very helpful, by making you analyse yourself and prepare your mindset for success. A must read for all dream chasers!
"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.
"The first book that I ever read."
Think and grow rich has revolutionised my whole life! It has made my personality so much finer.
"Very informative, very challenging."
A very interesting and informative book that requires more than one read. I surely recommend this book to anyone who sets business goals and for some reason has not achieved those goals.
