Publisher's Summary

"Think and Grow Rich" is a motivational personal development and selfhelp audiobook written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by a suggestion from Scottish-American businessman Andrew Carnegie.

While the title implies that this book deals only with how to achieve monetary wealth, the author explains that the philosophy taught in the book can be used to help individuals do or be almost anything they want in this world. For instance, Jim Murray (sportswriter) wrote that "Think and Grow Rich" was credited for Ken Norton's boxing upset of Muhammad Ali in 1973.

The book was first published in 1937 during the Great Depression. At the time of Hill's death in 1970, "Think and Grow Rich" had sold 20 million copies. It remains the biggest seller of Napoleon Hill's books, a perennial bestseller after 70 years (BusinessWeek Magazine's BestSeller List ranked "Think and Grow Rich" as the sixth bestselling paperback business book 70 years after it was first published).

"Think and Grow Rich" is listed in John C. Maxwell's "A Lifetime Must Read Books List".

One of the best deceived stories

At first I found the book rather intriguing, the concept made sense. If you focus all your energy into one goal you will accomplish that goal because your entire thought process is geared toward accomplishing that goal. I found the stories of how people found success through determination and was really like “wow, these are some great stories” especially when I started reading about his deaf son with no ears. I was so intrigued that I wanted to find out more information and thought there must be a crazy biography on this kid who had no ears and learned to live a fully functioning life and inspired other deaf children to take action of there lives and move forward. In trying to find more information it seemed increasingly harder to even find references to Napoleon Hills son with out the reference pointing to the book. Then upon further investigation it led me to realize that the real Napoleon Hill was considered a Con Artist, who has skipped out on many towns after scamming people for their monies experiencing the rise of success and wealth only to blow on unnecessary and lavishing expenses which soon dried up his funds causing him to go out and scam some more. This lead him into writing a couple other books most of which were flops until this book came around, which became an instant hit over the years and the original Napoleon Hill became forgotten and the character in his book became the real one. Another disappointing portion is when Napoleon Hill claimed to have had a meeting with Andrew Carnegie a very famous and wealthy person (not to be mistaken with Dale Carnegie the author) who taught Napoleon the “SECRET” and tasked him with acquiring the knowledge of success from all these great people. However when looking into this further it appears there was never a mention of this from Andrew Carnegie as well it didn’t fit his nature to do this when he had many influential people and hard workers who were in his life to get stuff done. However he was unable to comment in the book as it was written and published after Mr Carnegie had passed away. Unfortunate how that timing worked.

Unfortunately after getting only a portion of the way through this book and riding the roller coaster of intrigue, excitement and then to utter disappointment I had to put the book down because I no longer felt compelled to learn from a person who had a university shut down by trying to set up a fraudulent mechanic shop in the auto class. Or tried to sell fake shares in an organization that was grossly undervalued.

I believe this book show be titled “Think and write a book, then sell the book and grow rich”

In the end this is all my personal opinion on the matter from what I read and believed to be true.

good but a bit outdated

it's fun to have a perspective of the world from nearly 100 years ago, but some of the concepts and point of view are a bit outdated!

Horrid

The literary equivalent of thoughts and prayers. I bet the amount of millions lost far exceeds the amount gained by the influences of this book

Life Changing

I have read and listened to this book too many times to count. When I first started I saw little to no results, but I thought there's got to be something here. Long story short, I have followed the instructions more closely and Faithfully, now my whole life is changed. My career, my self image, the way people see and act towards me, it's all at a whole new level!

I highly suggest this book. Thank you for sharing with the world in the easily digestible medium of sound!

Bad

It was difficult to finish this book. Old phrasing and also contains outdated information. Books like this getting 5 stars is not reasonable. Now I will check all the reviews before purchasing a book on Audible.

lots of thought provoking information.

the overall thoughts in this book are great. i like that the research to make this book was information from major historical figures. some of the ideas are a little out there, but for the most part it seems like if you let this book guide you. you can gain what you want in life.

Excellentes méthodes, même pour aujourd'hui

Les concepts et les méthodes sont vraiment utiles, même aujourd'hui avec toutes les interactions numériques. Les premiers chapitres du livre audio pourraient être améliorés, mais le reste est merveilleux, alors n'abandonnez pas si vite. Beaucoup d'idées viennent ou sont similaires à celles trouvées dans les livres de Dale Carnegie, mais il y a d'autres aspects authentiques dont parle Napoléon Hill.

chapters

i really enjoyed listening to this book. It is full of interesting knowledge and you get your aha- moments along the way to start realizng what lays next on your path.
It is a pity though that there are an enourmous amount of chapters that do not relate to the books chapters. sometimes a "new" chapter even starts in the middle of a phrase.
This makes it incredibly difficult to go back to a particular part of the book.
