Publisher's Summary

In 1908, an unknown writer was chosen by Andrew Carnegie, the richest man in the world, to undertake a very special project - interview the most influential and wealthy leaders to determine the common denominator among them for attaining success. That young man was Napoleon Hill, and the book that grew from those interviews was Think and Grow Rich, the bible of personal development and the 20th best-selling book in the history of the world.

Exactly 100 years later the Napoleon Hill Foundation selected two gifted individuals to follow in Hill's historic footsteps and modernize his classic work by interviewing the most celebrated and gifted minds of our modern era. Sharon Lechter and Greg Reid focused their query on a core component of the Think and Grow Rich philosophy by asking one simple question: What inspired you despite overwhelming challenges, dismal odds and discouraging setback to persevere on your quest?

Now, more than ever, we need a reminder that in order to achieve greatness our determination must be more powerful that any obstacles confronted. Great pains are prerequisites to great gains. There are no shortcuts. First there is a dream, and then there is struggle followed by victory. The admonition is to not be a footnote in history like R. U. Darby. Who was he? He was a miner during the California Gold Rush who threw in the towel and sold his claim for a hundred dollars. The man who bought the claim dug only 'three feet' before striking one of the richest gold veins in history.

    I'm not much of a reader but I am a great listener. I like to listen to an audiobook before I decide its worth buying the book in print.

    "Three feet from your Oppertunity"

    This audio book is a really nice read. it expands exponentially on Napoleon Hill's, "Three Feet From Gold". It has a cool story on how the author's over came their obstacles and turned them into many great opportunities. It has a lot of real world experiences with real successful people you can look up and verify. It was educational and a fun read.

    "This was a good review of Think And Grow Rich"

    I enjoyed the review of the principles of Think Grow Rich with its more present-day focus. I listen to an audiobook every week to two weeks because it's much more convenient than reading the books. What makes or breaks any audiobook is the presentation of the story or materials by the narrator. Frankly, this is the worst narration of any book I've listen to. I felt like the actor/narrator was trying to play the role of every different character. It was so disruptive. I found myself focused on what the narration. When he tried to imitate women it sounded like a totally effeminate man and I just found it very very distracting to the material. I found the material terrific and I really was enjoying the material at times but I just couldn't deal with the narration. I've never complained about an audiobook before and I've listened to 100-150, but if I were the publisher of this audiobook I would absolutely go back and have it narrated by somebody that can remain neutral or enhance the material, he's not Orson Welles. I really wanted to listen to this a bunch of times and let the info sink in but I just couldn't listen to it anymore. I ended up just deleting it and buying the book...very disappointing. As I listened to the story of how long and hard the process was of writing this book and then struggling for years to get a publisher it is hard to imagine how this final product was found even remotely acceptable.

    "Honored"

    This book have change my life. In so many ways my thinking was always negative because of what I been threw. I have forgave people I thought I could never forgive. I learned so much about me threw others as well as my self. This was the best book besides the bible I have read. I am more positive then I ever have been in my life. I have shared this book with so many people. I will never ever give up. It feels so good to know that I am not the only person that think like this. Thank you for this book it's what this world needs right now. Priceless this is a gold mine. And it am three feet from my Gold.
