Publisher's Summary

This recording is an unabridged and unaltered rendition of the original best-selling blockbuster published in 1937. The book continues to be widely read and studied today. Mr. Hill spent more than 20 years following the careers of, and talking to, many of the most successful men in the country. What he discovered is that they all had certain ideas and attitudes in common. He was inspired in particular by Scottish-American businessman Andrews Carnegie who urged him to research and write a book on what it takes to get rich.

In the book Mr. Hill states that his philosophy is about more than just money. It can be used as a vehicle for success in all lines of work and to obtain whatever a person views as "success". Think and Grow Rich is listed in John C. Maxwell's A Lifetime "Must-Read" books.

    "Still great."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Think and Grow Rich to be better than the print version?

    Hard to say...never saw the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Think and Grow Rich?

    Really can't pick one...there were many.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Killavey – was your favorite?

    No characters - non-fiction. Reader was very good, though.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Think and Grow Rich?

    Wow....many, many insights in this book. Hope I can apply at least a few.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a life changing book. Sure, the references are dated but that really doesn't matter. The ideas are what count.

    "This Book And Its Content Deserve 6 Stars Out Of 5"
    What did you love best about Think and Grow Rich?

    After reading Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad Poor Dad, I heard that this book was also great. The content is ridiculously rich, and has saved me tremendously during my financial hardships. Thanks to it, I followed through with my venture and am now prospering comfortably with my new empire Money Coach Alex [dot] com. Many times I felt like I'd fail, I went back to this book and got the necessary push to persist and succeed. A life saver indeed.


    What other book might you compare Think and Grow Rich to and why?

    I might compare it to my second favorite: Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, because while they both talk about how to get rich, they also both have different approaches to teaching you how to do so. I was lucky enough to have read both before tumbling on and succeeding in my venture.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Killavey – was your favorite?

    He didn't have too many performances, and honestly, in the beginning, I was quite annoyed with his style of narration, but I did enjoy his interpretation of Darby's Uncle getting "whipped by the colored child".


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not cry, but I did chuckle a bit in some parts. But I definitely got an extreme reaction, the day I felt like quitting my venture, and had the audiobook on pause for a few days. I decided to pick it up in hopes that it would encourage me to keep at it. And like a miracle, it was towards the end of the book, the chapter that speaks of the Ghost of Fear of Ending Broke. That was exactly what I was feeling at that moment, and it was a clear sign that I needed to conquer that fear right there and then.


    Any additional comments?

    Do get this audiobook, but read AFTER you've read Rich Dad Poor Dad. Rich Dad will give you more of a need to get into Real Estate whereas this book will help you strive in whatever venture/hobby YOU enjoy. Do read them in this exact order and visit me at Money Coach Alex [dot] com so we can share ideas. Good luck all!

    "Some good things, but buyer beware!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Napoleon Hill used a lot of Bible references completely out of context and made a lot of heretical statements throughout the book, including: "In truth, no man knows, and no man has ever known, what heaven or hell is like, nor does any man know if either place actually exists." Another quote is, "Baldheaded men, for example, are bald for no other reason than their fear of criticism. Heads become bald because of the tight fitting bands of hats which cut off the circulation from the roots of the hair." He quotes Jesus several times (out of context) and then puts in words the first quote mentioned.Obviously, he had a good idea, but riddled his good work with whatever he allowed his mind to accept without regard for truth. If Jesus is worth quoting, why ignore what He said about Heaven and Hell? Jesus claims that He came down from the Father in Heaven. His work could have been so good, yet he settled for so little.I am sorry that I wasted my time with it. I only listened to this book because it was recommended by Jeff Olson in his book The Slight Edge, which my wife and I absolutely loved!


    What could Napoleon Hill have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Paid attention to facts. He had to deliberately ignore facts to make many of his claims.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Killavey – was your favorite?

    Jim Killavey did a good job, in my opinion, on the whole book. My bad review of this book is solely based on the content he was reading. I didn't give Jim a 5-star rating because I have heard performances that are much better. However, Jim did do a good job--just not a great one, in my opinion.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Think and Grow Rich?

    The one where he talks to dead people.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want a much better delivery of the best aspects of the book, ignore this one and read "The Slight Edge" by Jeff Olson. It's available on audio, also!
