Originally published in 1937, Hill's money making secrets are as powerful today as they were then - and can change your life forever. After interviewing more than 500 of the most affluent men and women of his time, Hill uncovered the secret to great wealth, based on the notion that if we can learn to think like the rich, we can discover wealth and success. He developed a simple bur powerful 13-step formula to help you to:
In the original Think and Grow Rich, Hill tells stories of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires of his generation to illustrate his principles.
In the updated version, Arthur R. Pell, Ph.D., a nationally known author, lecturer, and consultant in human resources management and an expert in applying Hill 's philosophy, interweaves anecdotes of how contemporary millionaires and billionaires such as Bill Gates, Mary Kay Ash, Dave Thomas, and Sir John Templeton achieved their wealth, each of them exemplifying one of Hill 's key concepts. The first book to ask, "What makes a winner?" is a treasure awaiting all who are newto it, or those wanting to revisit its timeless wisdom.

The most helpful book I have read overall!
I followed along in the book so abridged got a little annoying but it wasn't to bad
I am apparently in a distinct minority, but I don't get all the hoopla over this book. There are obviously many fine principles, and I am a proponent of maximizing positive thinking. But his insistence on "tapping into the universe and mystic powers" [my terminology] was very disappointing, and it seriously detracted from his other points. I finally stopped reading (listening) about 75% of the way through.
This book has great perspective given by people who have achieved success
The concept leaned from the successes of millionaires that anything you can conceive and believe you can achieve.
I have read the book. Mr. Fontinos updated the people used as examples who used the principles compiled by Napolian Hill
Not really the book looks at business in a way that moves me. The brilliance of a thought coupled with tenacity and hard work has amazing results.
This is my favorite book. It was a pleasure listening to it while I was driving
This was one of the first books I read when I decided to work towards becoming financially wealthy. Although I am by no means there yet, this book was inspiration and a solid foundation to put me in the right direction. It includes multiple success stories like Starbucks, McDonalds, etc, and the author put a heartfelt and personal spin on Napoleon Hill's original. This book challenges the listener to tap into core creativity and ingenuity, while keeping a positive, goal oriented mind set. Sometimes it would get a little boring, but few books are through and through exhilarating. Sometimes the message would repeat, but usually that can be helpful when trying to remember pivotal points in the book. Overall, it was worth the time, and the lessons taught in this book will remain classic material.
