Publisher's Summary

Think and Grow Rich is a motivational personal development and self-help book written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by a suggestion from Scottish-American businessman Andrew Carnegie. While the title implies that this book deals only with how to achieve monetary wealth, the author explains that the philosophy taught in the book can be used to help individuals do or be almost anything they want. For instance, Jim Murray (a sportswriter) wrote that Think and Grow Rich was credited for Ken Norton's boxing upset of Muhammad Ali in 1973.

The book was first published in 1937 during the Great Depression. At the time of Hill's death in 1970, Think and Grow Rich had sold 20 million copies. It remains the biggest seller of Napoleon Hill's books - a perennial best-seller after 70 years (BusinessWeek's best-seller list ranked Think and Grow Rich as the sixth best-selling paperback business book 70 years after it was first published). Think and Grow Rich is listed in John C. Maxwell's A Lifetime Must Read Books List.

    "Narrated by ??? NOT Napoleon Hill"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is a good book, I have read it once in the 1990's and wanted to listen to it again. The book is a Great book, it is the person Reading it that is horrible, it is obvious he is not a reader. He pauses at multiple places during a sentence where there shouldn’t be a pause. It’s like he can only read a few words per breath, he is so consistent through the whole book.


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

    There is too much good information to list.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Napoleon Hill’s performances?

    Yes.


    What character would you cut from Think and Grow Rich?

    None, I would fire the reader.


    Any additional comments?

    Fire the reader, and change the

    "Great message for overall success"

    I downloaded this book after another author referenced on his book. The bottom line is that Mr. Napoleon Hill describes a method for success that has been proven over and over by thousands of people and copied in many forms by many other authors, even in today's bests sellers for personal development.

    If you are interested in this topic, I suggest you download a lecture by Mr. Napoleon Hill in his own voice, also available at Audible.com. It is the best and I am sure you will get the message delivered efficiently and enjoyable. Mr. Hill's method for success is without doubt a proven approach for anyone that truly desires to succeed in life, whether is business or personal.

    My only regret is that Audible.com advertises this book as narrated by Mr. Napoleon Hill and that is not the case. The actual narrator has the most boring voice that I have heard with a British accent and it takes away pretty much most of the interest from the reader (listener). So if you do not care about the narrator's voice, then I recommend to download this version, otherwise, look for another narrator or Mr. Hill's truly own voice on his real life lecture recording, also available here in Audible.com.

    "Not Hill's voice"

    Really disappointed that it wasn't Hill's own voice, even though it says it is. Not sure why it's advertised that way, regardless I would not recommend this book.

    "The book is great, the reading awful."
    What would have made Think and Grow Rich better?

    The narration of this book is generally poor due to the narrator pausing, punctuating the dictation incorrectly in addition to adding emphasis the words where non is added.

    I had previously purchased the book which is excellent. However, I found the flow of the narration to be awkward to the point that I find it irritating to listen to it. It flows as if using computer narration.

    I will be exercising the option for the money back guarantee, and reviewing an alternative version.

    "Good ideas, but book too long and reading too slow"
    What did you love best about Think and Grow Rich?

    It's got some good ideas, but I feel it could be cut to 1/3 the size without much loss of info. For example, Mr. Hill finds three ways to say the same thing, in almost every paragraph. It's also very dry and pedantic, not helped by Mr. Henderson's reading either, I'm halfway through the book, and I feel it's moving too slowly for me. It reminds me of self-help books in which they list and describe every psychological case.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I have no idea. I'm 54% into the book and can't wait for it to end so I can go read something else more stimulating.


    What didn’t you like about Alan Henderson’s performance?

    He reads each line like it is important. It is too slow for me, so rather excruciating for me to listen to, because the author is quite thorough (wordy) in describing his ideas.


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

    I wish. It's too long for that.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this is an older version of the book. While the ideas are timeless, I hope the newer editions have updated some of the examples/ideas to make them more relevant/interesting.

    "Terrible narration"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Alan Henderson’s performances?

    Absolutely not! Slowly spoken and every few words a long pause.


    Any additional comments?

    I will try a different narrator

    "Narration Is Horrible"
    If you could sum up Think and Grow Rich in three words, what would they be?

    This version is 13 hrs long. 3-4 hrs longer than the other versions. I think the only reason is because Henderson reads so slow and pauses so much. I'm returning it and getting a version with a different narrator

    "Very Dated"

    It is quite dated. Some of the references are shocking out of the context in which they were originally written. I'd be interested to see this book updated for the modern era.

    "timeless self-improvement, slightly dated perspec"
    Any additional comments?

    "How to Think and Grow Rich" by Napolean Hill is one of the all time best selling self improvement books, but it was written right after the great depression. You will notice how dated it sounds, and certain parts almost don't apply. On the other hand, THIS IS a fucking BIBLE in self improvement. It is not short, but some of the stuff is timeless. This was my first listen a couple months ago, and totally got me in the mind frame of, "Ok.. Lets fucking do this." ... It really is if you have a LOT of time to listen (like I did stocking shelves), but good stuff can be gleaned even if you listen to parts. (delivery style: old school) ★★★

    The book is fabulous


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration is really dull and slow, twice I tried to listen and twice I found myself falling asleep.


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

    YES! I like to listen to audiobooks whilst travelling.

    "Oh Alan!"

    The content is dated but still worthy. I downloaded this because the book is in many top 10 books to inspire. But the main problem is the way in which it is read. For such inspirational material it is read in a rather unemotional, dry and dull way. I listened all the way through but a few weeks later I really can't remember most of it and I certainly won't be listening again. I think I may just buy the book!
