just a long and hypey sales pitch

Lots of hype, lots of promises, lots of self aggrandizing, but no meat, major waste of time.

Must Read!

After reading and listening to this entire book I now understand why all the successful people in my life have read this book. Do yourself a favor and listen to this book. If you can try to read it alongside the reader and maximize your absorption of the content. This took me two weeks and I can confidently tell you my mind is in a completely different space now than when I first read this book.

Wishing you all the riches you desire and deserve!

Worst book I have ever read

This book is absurd. It shows it’s date of being written by referring to people by race/ethnicity as “colored” and “oriental” in the early chapters. If you are not a white male, you should not read this book. If you are looking for tips to think and grow rich, you should not read this book. The chapter that got me was around chapter 13 or 14 when he tells people that one of the major steps to riches is through telepathy and activating your sixth sense. That is not a metaphor for anything. He literally talks about meditation and speaking with Thomas Edison and Jesus (to name a few that he references) as his advice or principle to becoming rich. Like who in their right mind recommends this book to anyone. Please read this review and save yourself hours of your life from this terrible and completely outdated book.

Antiquated and sexist, but some gems in this book

Speaking from someone with a child who was diagnosed with brain cancer at 4 months of age, it is insensitive to say you can will your child to hear/speak/be Nerotypical/survive. My child survived the incredible odds given to him, other parents children did not. It’s horrific to think if you willed it to be, maybe the outcome would be different. Given this book is a classic, I thought I would come away with more. However it promotes many outdated and disproved concepts like thinking positively will produce positive results. You’re better off reading Albert Ellis or Aaron Beck if you’d like real life/psychological strategies for success or Robert T.’s Rich Dad Poor Dad.

Most sincerely,

Classic Book, 21st Century Version Better

Let's get something straight - TaGR is not a magic book. I've seen so many reviews with "don't alter the original, don't change it, don't add new content" that I was afraid of buying any other version. I have already read the book in paperback so this came as the next natural choice.

TaGR (this version) is good but it's not perfect. The naration sometimes it's not very exciting and it can get lost in the background. The story focuses on the TaGR methodology which is fine but it's sometimes alienating to hear examples from 75 years ago. The lenght is way too big especially since the principles are not so many.

So I enjoyed this purchase. However, I enjoy a lot more my copy of the 21st century edition. It's far better edited, the sound quality seems better (it's totally subjective) and it's far more relatable than to the classic.

Therefore, if you want TaGR on steroids, look for the latest version. It's far longer but it's worth it.

It's about "the secret"

If you're familiar with the secret (think about something and it's just manifests itself from nothing) it's basically the same ideas. I should have known this before purchasing because I really disagree with the idea that you can make money by wanting it hard. The execution matters the most.
All the stories are a 100 years old, so it's also very unrelatable in my opinion.

The Original is Always the Best

If you have read or listened to other versions of Think and Grow Rich you need to listen to this one too. It is the original 1938 text. It is longer than most other editions but, it’s worth it. There are whole sections of this book that are left out of other versions. And I found those sections to be quite valuable. As for the narrator – I thought he was fine. His delivery allowed me to add whatever color I needed to as I digested the information

Dated, and doesnt really lend itself to audio

This is somewhat of a time capsule, it's a self help book written in the aftermath of the great depression. There are some nuggets that are detailed and I found some of the historical perspectives to be interesting, but overall it really didn't work, particularly as an audio book. There were exhaustive lists throughout the book - for example the 28 primary reasons people don't succeed, which made following the book a challenge. It is obviously a classic to have lasted this long, it just didn't work for me.

Love the content...but not the way the audiobook is organized.

The chapters don't start and end with the chapters of the audiobook. The book has are chapters that start and end at times in the middle of a chapter in the audiobook. There were times I wanted to go back and listen to a chapter again...but it would take me a while to track it back down. The book itself I truly enjoyed and will listen to or read again.

I wish I hadn’t learned the author was a con man

I was unsettled by the literary style… The leaps of logic in the book were awkward and made me uncomfortable.

Then I looked up the author.

His name is shrouded in scandal, and the Napoleon Hill foundation is involved in questionable shady business practices. If I were you, I would move on to a better book with a proven leader as the author.

Save yourself the time and money!

Very instructive, but there is more!

As ever Napoleon Hill's ability to breakdown complex leadership principles is second to none. That said, much of the content comes from his earlier book "The Law of Success". In my opinion it is that earlier book that is the 5 star knock out punch. So in closing this book is certainly outstanding value - rich in content and practical guidance, but "The Law of Success" carries that bit more. The challenge is that there are one or two themes covered in greater detail in this book. If advising I would probably suggest listening to this book first, then the "Law of Success" afterwards to avoid any anti-climax. As the earlier book is simply out of this world brilliant.

There's better available

A very dull listen from start to finish. I persevered purely due to the popularity of this book but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Although the fundamental message of the book is good (mind over matter/determination/not giving up etc) I did not learn anything meaningful. At one point the author explains the reason doctors don't get sick is because they do not fear illness, and the reason men go bald is because they wear hats that block circulation to their head and this is also why women do not go bald as they wear bigger hats - absolute nonsense.

If you are interested in building the right mindset for business and accumulating wealth you would be far better off listening to the likes of The Richest Man in Babylon or Rich Dad Poor Dad. If you want to understand the true mindset of the rich (which is what this book aims to do) then you would be better off with Secrets of the Millionaire Mind or The Millionaire Next Door.

As you can see I've read a number of books in this genre and this book would come bottom of the list.

A business classic!

This book is an absolutely fantastic look into the what people now call the ?millionaire mindset?. The book is the combination of 20 years of studying some of the greatest inventors, investors and Business men of the time and in fact the century, people like Henry Ford, Alexander Bell, Thomas Edison, and Andrew Carnegie. It was actually Andrew Carnegie who encouraged Hill to write the book and study the great minds of their time.

The book goes through topics such as Imagination and discusses how once a person can imagine something on ones mind then it is possible, Desire, in which he tells of the deaf child who finally heard and how if a person desires something badly enough he can and will achieve it, auto-suggestion and how having positive thinking can affect outcome, procrastination, imagination, the brain itself and fear. The most interesting section, however, I believe is on his ideas of sex transmutation; turning sex drive into a positive force instead of a destruction one. For the 1930?s his ideas were certainly revolutionary and for the most part most of them still hold. Some of the content is a little dated but in general Hill was on the money!

In essence this book is what Richard Parkes Cordock tried to do with the ?millionaire MBA Business Mentoring Program? and his inspiration for the millionaire upgrade in which Hill?s book is constantly referenced.

I honestly believe that this book should be compulsory for anyone studying business in either High School or University. It for me is one of the best books of in the area of business motivation.

The narration at times can be a little flat but it certainly gets the main points across. If you were looking for a book with a little bit more humour and life then Brian Tracey's "Success Mastery Academy" is certainly worth a look and similar topics are discussed.

Awesome!!

I have never written a review in my life and I definitely owe this book one...Napoleon Hill is true pioneer in self development. I like the honesty, the facts, and most of all the power of positive thinking. If anyone reading this wants joy in their life, please open the pages. This isn't just about getting rich in money, it's about getting rich in life!

Pretty alright if you look past the bit shout using telepathy and having meetings in your imagination with Napoléon and Jesus Christ. Bit weird, but still pretty good

"The Secret" re branded.

The belief he can will his son to overcome deafness by pure belief. Belief to the point he refused to teach him sign language or get him special assistance. Only finally able to hear with technology at 18 years old. The belief that affirmations and blind faith answer all.
Some occasional points of interest but largely a pile of positive affirmation and blind faith and the universe will provide. Send out positive vibrations and the universe will respond.

Some good points but rather outdated.

The book has some great points about mindset and the good qualities one needs to be successful but so much of his philosophy is outdated and I was irritated by his unjustified anti-religious stance.
