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 reason this book remains a top seller is because it is amazing. I read it in paperback many years ago and loved it. When I found that there was an "original manuscript" I was intrigued. It is interesting to see what was left out and well worth the time spent. I feel like I have gotten much more out of it this time.
The narration is nicely done. Regarding the first reviewer's comment. The narrator is using the correct Scottish pronunciation of Mr. Carnegie's name.
After reading other reviews I thought that to buy this particular version of the book is a bad idea. But I bought it anyway, because I've read good reviews about it on the other websites. And I'm NOT sorry at all...
The narration is good. I've had no problems listening or understanding ANY part of this book.
The book itself is Excellent! Considering that it was written more then half a century ago, it still presents the idea that is valid and useful today.
The well marketed book "The Secret" is nothing more then a newer and much shorter version of this same book. The only difference is that "The Secret" presents you information openly (because it published today), and "Think and Grow Rich" pushes you toward the same idea without naming it (because it was published "back then", and the author probably didn't liked the idea of spending the rest of his life in mental institution).
Would recommend this book to anyone who wants to take control of his/her life. Listen to it it'll do you good (or in the worst case - nothing at all).
If you have read or listened to other versions of Think and Grow Rich you need to listen to this one too. It is the original 1938 text. It is longer than most other editions but, it’s worth it. There are whole sections of this book that are left out of other versions. And I found those sections to be quite valuable. As for the narrator – I thought he was fine. His delivery allowed me to add whatever color I needed to as I digested the information
This audiobook contains advice that can change your life. It has guided some of the most successful people in the world. I was irritated for a while by the reader. His voice is nasal, but I gradually got accustomed to it.
If you're looking for a mental boost to help you achieve your dreams and goals, you should use the information in this audiobook as your foundation.
This book is a must for any entrepreneur or business person but equally it can be for any person that needs a change in thinking. Society teaches too much trash that riddles our thoughts and embeds the subconscious with the wrong thoughts, ideas and beliefs. This book is a good cleansing for any mind.
I first read the print version o fthis over a decade ago and it totally changed my life. Since then I have worked in over 30 countries, publised my own books and lots more I thought I would never accomplish.
Part one of this download is for me the best. Great case studies on achievement and how to face down the monsters that haunt us all. If you aren't familiar with this work then today is a great day for you to start.
Let's get something straight - TaGR is not a magic book. I've seen so many reviews with "don't alter the original, don't change it, don't add new content" that I was afraid of buying any other version. I have already read the book in paperback so this came as the next natural choice.
TaGR (this version) is good but it's not perfect. The naration sometimes it's not very exciting and it can get lost in the background. The story focuses on the TaGR methodology which is fine but it's sometimes alienating to hear examples from 75 years ago. The lenght is way too big especially since the principles are not so many.
So I enjoyed this purchase. However, I enjoy a lot more my copy of the 21st century edition. It's far better edited, the sound quality seems better (it's totally subjective) and it's far more relatable than to the classic.
Therefore, if you want TaGR on steroids, look for the latest version. It's far longer but it's worth it.
The positive reviews are right-on... This is a must-read book for those interested in how life works. You'll learn about how people work, and keys to a better life.
My only minor-complaint is that some of the scientific data is out-of-date, such as the suggested "scientifically supported" existence of Telepathy, and Ether, which have since both been proven to not exist. But if you can look past those errors, this is an amazing book.
A very successful man revealing his secrets to well being, not only financially, but in all areas of his life. Interesting, entertaining, and very, very educational.
"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!
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
"A must listen for all!"
If you must listen to one book only for personal self enhancement in growing a business or financial success, this is the one. I have listened to and read several.
Very good overall content touching on many personal developments subjects we take for granted and which significantly affects our personal growth and accomplishments.
Take time to listen, very informative.
"Some good points but rubbish in the others"
You don't have to be allergic to crap to feel iching on your knees from the very beginning of this book. I can't say that it's useless - it has some good points but if someone tries to imply that telepathic is a scientific truth then I tend to tune channel down. I liked 3 or 4 of 13 chapters.
I feel like there are other more valuable books.
It's a real eye opener and gives you the motivation to reach you're true potential.
"An excellent book, just brilliant!"
After listening to various books by some of the most famous authors who write about Manifesting your dreams, using law of attraction, I felt this book was really the daddy of all books, it is the book of all books! I felt I could recognise every step within other books, so for me this is a must read. It felt like so many had learnt their craft from this book. Fabulous and absolutely worth the read. I would enjoy listening to this book over and over again and I must say there are not many I would. At the end of the day this was well read and a complete pleasure to learn from. A STAR!
I think there are many that have come from this book, so therefor I guess you should look at perhaps, Dr Wayne Dyer, Jack Canfield etc.
It was straight forward and easy to listen to.
Its never too late to change your life!
I love this book its got to be the best I have ever read.
This book is one that you will find yourself turning to throughout your life.
This book whilst aged, and sometimes has some laughable moments as a result (such as telling you the benefits of cigarettes), helps you identify your life with an objective passion that will challenge you to organise yourself in a way you would never of conceived, and to micromanage your life as though you were a business. It is very good at giving you determination that will make you excitable about challenges and put you at ease when faced with them. I listen to this daily, and I often fall asleep with it on.
How to become the best version of you.
The narrator is very charismatic.
