Interesting insights, sometimes too nationalistic.

I liked the foundation of the book about creative thinking and controlled attention. I got really bored through the passages where the author chats about "the American way of life". Overall insightful, I'm taking away a lot from it.

Must Read

I wish I read this book sooner. It is full of great insights our our mind and how to effectively use it. I feel like I’ve been getting a 4 cylinder performance out of a 400M cylinder engine because of poor understanding. I’m really to now go full throttle.
Great read

Mind Opening

I loved the examples of your regular people used definiteness of purpose along with the other principles to attract physical manifestations. We have no time for negative thoughts if we are to achieve health and prosperity.

Dated

An interesting and dated attempt at the psychology of "success", filled with pseudoscience, American exceptionalism, sexism, racism and privileged perspectives.

Good insight into the widespread corporate mindset of 50-100 years ago, which still persists in pockets today.

Expected more from Napoleon Hill

I had high expectations for this book based on Napoleon Hill’s past works. Did not enjoy this one. It seemed to state the obvious.

Timeless Wisdom

My personal library comes from #Audible1. I'm dyslexic and listening to books like "How to Own Your Own Mind" while doing other things is incredible! I love learning and greatly value the 10 steps that Napoleon Hill talks about through his interview with Carnegie. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone interested in becoming more successful in life.

Incredible Content for Any Independant Woman!

I am a woman who was raised in Russia during the reign and then crush of USSR and I’m an American who’s been enjoying THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE, as Hill repeatedly refers to it, for the last 11 years.

The privilege of personal initiative and independent thinking is what I always praise America for and this book explains how to develop and leverage your own independent thinking mind and practice your personal initiative.

I recommend journaling while being influenced by this incredible content as the impact of breakthroughs is significant and valuable!

Think and grow rich for skeptics.

This is a transcript of the original interview with Andrew Carnegie that Hill did. In it you see that Carnegie, the genus of the philosophy and the world's then richest man, had no woo woo in his thinking. All the principles are there, but without the "Secret" style pontificating about "manifesting".

Action! He repeated this word emphatically and at the end of every point.

I think Carnegie might have preferred a book called "Act and Grow Rich." That would be an apt title for this too.

The title is misleading!

I was looking for a science based book about the mind, downloaded this book based on the title, and it's more about becoming successful and rich than to mastering your mind! The notion that the result of mastering your mind is to become rich and successful is just wrong! Study after study shows that the happiest people are people with great relationships in their life, not how much success they have! I was hoping this book would be about how to master your mind to be more happy, and not to become rich and successful!

Answers from the grave

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Just an hour into the book - so many ideas have been finally finetuned. I've read and studied T&GR for over 4 years now. There seem to be gaps in concepts in "Think and Grow Rich". like Creative vs Synthetic imagination; Definiteness of purpose; etc.

This is written in an Q and A interview style between Mr Hill and Carnegie - but the answers are very thorough and complete. It's way past my bedtime - and I can't stop listening to it.

Since it was Carnegie who commissioned Hill to take his epic 25-year journey ... this is an opportunity to hear from the "source". Access to the answers from his grave. Love the book!

Had me until you started talking about the churches

Churches should have no control in this world. That’s why there is a separation of church and state.
