Think and Grow Rich is the seminal work by the well-loved and world-renowned Napoleon Hill, a contemporary of Dale Carnegie. 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.

It is my personal preference to read books in hand with audio to go along with it. The book itself is great, very conceptual, and thought provoking. As for those that made the audiobook version, I'm very interested in knowing why countless paragraphs and sentences were completely skipped. It made reading along to the audio version very difficult. Barring this, the quality of the audiobook was good overall.

The book is fantastic. It is full of essential principles and mindsets, such as "the 80/20 rule". It outlines the process from A to Z of how to legitimately work 4 Hours per week comfortably, and the process should still work. The only issue is that as more time goes by, the more things change in society. The process is not as objective and step-by-step anymore, and the tools provided (i.e. the links to numerous websites) are 10 years old. Read this more for the principles and mindsets to adopt in your life, not so much the process to achieving a 4-hour workweek.
