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.

    "Fascinating Story"
    Would you listen to Three Feet from Gold again? Why?

    Completely loved and enjoyed this book. The storyline keeps your attention and commands you to keep listening. It's a reminder you are always three feet from gold. Giving up on a dream is possible and yet at the same time, if dreams were easily achievable, everyone or every business would reach their dreams/goals without struggles.


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

    Yes, it was and I listened to it a few hours a day each day until I was complete.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book to everyone I know. It provides a different way of thinking.

    The main character in my opinion is the best character for me. I see alot of me in him and I loved how he progressed throughout the book.


    What does Dan John Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dan John Miller really brings this story to life for me and has a way of story telling that is great for me.

    Story
    "Learning life's lessons in a business form"

    Excellent book! Its value is in the story form. Many people learn easier from stories (don't we tell our children and grandchildren stories) that teach them valuable lessons that no standard text book can teach.

    Not only are the stories invaluable to teach lessons, they are much easier to remember and apply due to the interwoven quotes.

    If you enjoy this format of learning through life's lessons then I suggest listening to one of my favorite podcast s - Entrepreneur on fire - John Lee Dumas.

    Story
    "Wasn't fond of story telling format"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It didn't really give any new information, it simply presented the concepts of Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich in a story-like format.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have not made it a story at all, but rather a more solid presentation of how today's successful business people became so successful, whether through Hill's principles and/or others.


    Have you listened to any of Dan John Miller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    haven't heard any others from Dan John Miller.


    Could you see Three Feet from Gold being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I supposed it could be a schmaltzy movie on Lifetime or something.


    Any additional comments?

    I noticed that this book has received many high marks. Obviously, it is resonating with many people. I think the more familiar you are with success principles, the less you'd enjoy this type of story-telling presentation. There is good substance in there, to be sure, but nothing you haven't heard before if you are a fan of Napoleon Hill already.

    Story
    "Very inspiring and eye opening"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, absolutely. It gets your full attention and makes you see and think about where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Three Feet from Gold?

    The fact that the most successful people are the ones that are the most willing to share. That people in the middle are the ones that are full of EGO and do not have time for anyone but themselves.


    What does Dan John Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It feels like he is talking to you and telling you his own story. I find it easier to focus and listen to what he has to say.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Three Feet from Gold?

    Share my experience and my profit with others, believe in myself, climb safe but climb to the top, keeping the right people and the right media around me, start going through my personal inventory!


    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook has opened my eyes and I am already planning on listening to it again. I was suffocating my self with to much thinking. It brought my thoughts from negative to possitive and made me see possibilities instead of problems.
