Publisher's Summary

The Napoleon Hill Foundation received many requests from people wanting the original, unedited, 1937 copy of Think and Grow Rich. To satisfy those customers, the Foundation reproduced Napoleon Hill’s personal copy of the first edition, printed in March of 1937. The book has the notation, “not to be loaned”, and signed: Annie Lou Hill (the wife of Dr. Hill). This personal copy of Dr. Hill’s was given to me by Dr. Charles W. Johnson, Chairman of the Napoleon Hill Foundation and a nephew of Napoleon Hill. It was Napoleon Hill who sent Dr. Johnson to medical school, and today he is a practicing cardiologist. Charlie refers to Napoleon Hill as “Uncle Nap” and will often make the statement, "Uncle Nap would be proud of the Foundation today." The original 1937 manuscript was written and edited with the assistance of Napoleon’s wife. In later years, the existing document was again edited by Dr. Hill. For example, the Foundation owns a 1958 edition that Hill edited personally. This did not lessen the book’s value in Hill’s judgment. Hill made the editing remarks in his own handwriting and the resulting 1960 edited edition has sold over 100 million copies making it the most read self-help book of all time.

Think and Grow Rich sells more copies today than before Dr. Hill died in 1970. Now, a new and authoritative recording of this original, unedited, one-of-a-kind work, authorized by the Napoleon Hill Foundation is available. By purchasing this audio edition, you will be supporting the nonprofit Napoleon Hill Foundation. The entire philosophy of Napoleon Hill is based on the Golden Rule. The Foundation deeply appreciates the support of those of you who only purchase Napoleon Hill authorized books. You can identify these materials by the Foundation Logo and by looking inside for Napoleon Hill copyright.

This version, read by Fred Stella, is THE version to buy

The book Think and Grow Rich is a classic. If you were to ask any author who writes on success, motivation, or self improvement my guess is each one would recommend this book.

The book, originally published in 1937, is now available online for free because copyrights have lapsed and that has led to more recent print editions having slight changes to the original text.

This audio is true to the original text and I find Fred's voice, pace and style to be the most enjoyable to listen to. I highly recommend this version as well as Fred's reading of Napoleon Hill's Laws of Success also here on Audible.

The original and ultimate success bible...

When it comes to the foundations of success, this book simply has no equal. I can't believe it had been this long since I visited it and especially on audiobook. It's so packed with deep wisdom that there's a temptation to dismiss parts of the work as less important when in reality, it is simply a complete work of gold.

A must read/listen for anyone who wants to tap into the life we were all born to lead in seeking the best that's inside each of us...

Best book ever, especially if you apply the principles.

I love this book because it was produced over a long period of time and published in 1937. Yet all the principles still apply today. It has made a difference in my life and continues to do so. This is about the fourth or fifth time I've read through it and I will continue to reread it. Best of luck to anyone who chooses to read it.

A must to have book

What did you love best about Think and Grow Rich (1937 Edition)?

Although the language and some terminology are obsolete, the main sense of the book remains valid up to date.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The story of the little girl who stand up against a grown up man for some cents shows clearly the secret that the author mention at the beginning of the book

What about Fred Stella’s performance did you like?

His voice keeps you interested in the book.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

To succeed in every goal you have in mind you need to think of it and believe it's possible and then put your best effort in achieving, always seeing yourself as if you already have it.

Any additional comments?

This is one of the best books I'd ever read, I have the kindle version and the audiobook and I've listened to it a couple of times, I'm also practicing the philosophy that is in the book and I must say that it really works.

Not very relevant. Just a mindset.

Struggled to finish. Pushed myself to keep listening hoping it would get better or provide something relevant. Never enjoyed any of it much, not happy with the purchase. Only interesting aspect was the stories about some of the successful businessmen of its time. The entire book is about pushing you to be in a mindset you will succeed and be rich no matter what. If you dream, believe and think it, it will come... I don't get how all the reviews push this as such a good book... For 20 years in the making its just ehh... IMO

...Another ageless content.

Self-Editing. This is what this book is about. You self editing your mind, thoughts and actions. It takes efforts and commitment to digest the content as it needs to so it can act as it is meant to. Rich content on how to make sense of the mind and how it works. Valuable tips and rich information to feed your brain and create neuro pathways to a paradigm shift. Listen attentively and if you are not clear of the message, re-listen, as many times is necessary until it is understood by your mind.
