This motivational personal-development and self-help book was 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, author Napoleon Hill explains that the philosophy taught in these pages can be used to help individuals do or be almost anything they want. For instance, according to sportswriter Jim Murray, Think and Grow Rich was credited for Ken Norton’s boxing upset of Muhammad Ali in 1973. At the time of Hill’s death in 1970, Think and Grow Rich had sold twenty million copies since its publication during the Great Depression in 1937. It remains Hill’s biggest seller and was listed by BusinessWeek as the sixth best-selling paperback business book seventy years after its publication. It is also on John C. Maxwell’s “Lifetime Must Read” list.

"Napoleon Hill’s philosophy teaches you what you were never taught. Specifically: how to recognize, relate, assimilate, and apply principles whereby you can achieve any goal whatsoever that doesn’t violate Universal Law - the Law of God and the rights of your fellowman." (W. Clement Stone, chairman, combined international corporation president, The Napoleon Hill Foundation)
"During the past twenty-five years I have been blessed with more good fortune than any individual deserves, but I shudder to think where I’d be today, or what I’d be doing if I had not been exposed to Napoleon Hill’s philosophy. It changed my life." (Og Mandino, author and lecturer)
"I knew Napoleon Hill in 1922 when I was a student in Salem College in the town of my birth. Mr. Hill came to our campus as the commencement speaker in that year. As I listened to him, I heard something other than just the words he spoke, I felt the substance - the wisdom - and the spirit of a man and his philosophy. Mr. Hill said, ‘the most powerful instrument we have in our hand is the power of our mind.’ Napoleon Hill compiled this philosophy of American achievement for the benefit of all people. I strongly commend this philosophy to you for achievement and service in your chosen field." (Senator Jennings Randolph, West Virginia)
