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?

The book is great, but the narrarator mispronounces Andrew Carneggie's name throughout the entire book.
Editor? Proof listener? Hello?
The conent is quality.
Erik needs to do his homework & stop misprounouncing Andrew Carneggie's name.
personally, I got nothing out of it. I would not recommend it to anyone unless they would want to listen to short stories about dedication, faith, persistence, desire....blah blah blah.
This is my least favorite book i've ever downloaded. I don't recommend to really anyone. I don't understand how it is popular, ridiculous.
I've wanted to read this book for years. Finally getting the opportunity, I slowly but surely realized that Mr. Hill had fashioned a few small nuggets of wisdom in a heap of speculation and outright nonsense.
"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.
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!
"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.
The fact that what was being explained seems like absolute common sense and easy to do - if you do it
I very much enjoyed listening to this book because of him
Yes, although I couldn't as it is very long.
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.
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
"Very intense but worth it!"
Its elaborate and straight to the point. If you really want to get the most out of it them listen very carefully a couple of times
This is a very old book and does not translate well into the modern post war world!
Not a hope
Not his fault the book was just silly
Not for me
Please don't bother
