I appreciate the valuable information in this audio book, and I do realize that this is a legendary key to American wealth building, however, I had so much difficulty listening to this book while driving. I literally was falling asleep. I will purchase the hardcopy and take another stab at this, particularly since the author states to re-read several chapters.
One of the best Books I have ever read on money!!! Gives you the mindset you need to be very successful.
I absolutely loved it! Very empowering and worth listening more than once!
Well, I got "it" while listening to the first chapter. It hit me smack in the face. I guess you could call this the "secret" message - the whole purpose of the book. Almost every sentence re-emphasizes it! It's a great listen if you have something in mind that you want to do. I pray that your goals are in line with God's will! This is something which I have found much more important than personal drive, or self-will. I, myself, have retracted to reading the bible and finding out what is actually worth doing in this life. Time is limited, but some things we do might have eternal ramifications. =)
A classic self help book. The author spends a lot of time motivating the listener to pursue the exercises. It's redundant if you're already sold but needed if you're not. I appreciated the references to free enterprise titans. I found a new, slightly different perspective each time I listened to the book.
If you can get past the mid-century style and emphasis on mid-century careers (such as "the ad game" lauded on stage, screen, and in this book during the 1950s and 60s), this has a great message: What you think about, you bring about. Hill was the first (that I know about) to make this concept available to the masses, but he's certainly not been the last - you will probably have heard this message even if you've just skimmed the surface of self-development genre. But skipping this book would be like working on a degree in English without ever having read Shakespeare - he's simply too seminal to ignore, and you won't have the same depth of understanding. Just take the dated stuff as an interesting glimpse into his time (like seeing those vintage TV commercials for cigarettes or Tang) and mine the rest for its many gems of wisdom.
An excellent book to put your desires into to action. A well written book that not only motivates and inspires you to reach your goals, but gives you a definte framework to execute it. Many a books authors have taken ids from this book, including my favorite author Brian Tracy. A sure read. Whish you on the execution part.
I got this book b/c I heard how powerful it was and that it has made mor millionaire than any other book. I don't claim to be an expert, I've only read 13 investment/money books in the past year and I have to say this is the absolute worst book among them. If you are looking for practical advice, do not get this book. He spends a lot of time talking about your unconscious and how to access it and talks about odd things like transforming the mightly sex impulses toward riches. This is a motivational book, doesn't even do a good job at that. Lots of rambling on about people who appeared destined to fail and became rich. I honestly cannot believe the great review of this book on amazon. Would definitley avoid the unabridged version, which is extremely long. Overall, don't get too excited about all they hype on this book. Definitely would not recommend.
One of the all-time classics! I think I listened to this one 3 times! There is so much information! And Dr. Hill gives us a first-hand insight into some of the greatest industry titans of the United States of America: Edison, Ford, Schwab. Wonderfully written and rich in content.
I couldn't finish it. Audio is a poor format to "read" this book, due to the frequent use of lists and rules and "must do's." The story and language are outdated and the narrator couldn't have sounded more pedantic. The content and delivery reminded me of the short movies we saw in grade school (in the 60's) about personal hygiene, sex education, and the evils of the demon weed. Even though everything the author states with such certainty may be true, I do not recommend this audio book...life is too short...I'd rather stay poor.
Napoleon Hill was born in 1883 in a one-room cabin on the Pound River in Wise County, Virginia. He began his writing career at age 13 as a "mountain reporter" for small town newspapers and went on to become America's most beloved motivational author. Hill passed away in November 1970 after a long and successful career writing, teaching, and lecturing about the principles of success. His work stands as a monument to individual achievement and is the cornerstone of modern motivation. His book, Think and Grow Rich, is the all time bestseller in the field. Hill established the Foundation as a nonprofit educational institution whose mission is to perpetuate his philosophy of leadership, self-motivation, and individual achievement. His books, audio cassettes, videotapes, and other motivational products are made available to you as a service of the Foundation so that you may build your own library of personal achievement materials... and help you acquire financial wealth and the true riches of life.
