Think and Grow Rich is the number-one inspirational and motivational classic for individuals who are interested in furthering their lives and reaching their goals by learning from important figures in history. The text read in this audiobook is the original 1937 edition written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie - and while it has often been reproduced, no updated version has ever been able to compete with the original.

I wish my father would have read this book when he was 20. Even though that meant that I might not be there today since he must have chosen a different course for his life which would permitted to gain and secure success, weather in the choice of his partner or the management of fears. Now that I am here and been through a ignorant decade. I wish i would have read when i was 20 and lived by the principles of this amazing compilation.

What did Charles Darwin, middling schoolboy and underachieving second son, do to become one of the earliest and greatest naturalists the world has known? What were the similar choices made by Mozart and by Caesar Rodriguez, the U.S. Air Force's last ace fighter pilot? In Mastery, Robert Greene's fifth book, he mines the biographies of great historical figures for clues about gaining control over our own lives and destinies. Picking up where The 48 Laws of Power left off, Greene culls years of research and original interviews to blend historical anecdote and psychological insight, distilling the universal ingredients of the world's masters.

This book contains proven steps and strategies on how you can get into real estate investing, and grow your wealth. This book that I have written is designed specifically for beginners who have no prior knowledge about the real estate market. While you may not be aware of it, people are making a fortune on the real estate market and they are doing so because of the opportunities offered. No longer is banking investment thought of as being the best bet.

A hard cover copy was gifted to me 7 years ago and I never got the occasion to get around it.
This Boutsikaris narrated version was dynamic and easy to follow. Fisher and Ury did an excellent job to put together this ethical piece of art on how to negotiate and still keep your relationship intact (given that the other person is on the same note as you). A must read but do apply as soon as possible to take in the full content and advantage presented.
