What do you want most in your life?
Napoleon Hill describes thirteen steps to individual achievement revealed to him by self-made millionaire Andrew Carnegie. Hill devoted 25 years of research into the minds of America’s wealthy men who experienced rags-to-riches success. It has taken Hill a quarter of a century to produce this book explaining the formula to success which now the average person can discover.
What are you waiting for? Make your dreams come true!
Straight off the bat this book is a scam from one of the earliest con man. Do a bit of research, he DIDN’T even meet Andrew Carnegie. What a joke15
Although we all know that we must go through hardships to get where we want to get, it is important to see what and how successful individuals did to overcome them.55
This was a good read but its not an easy one. the english is older and there is so much information in the book you either cant put it down or like me have to take multiple breaks to digest it. This is definetly not a one time read I beleieve you will have to revist this one especially if you are not practicing what is outlined in the book already. Be prepared to take notes and lots of it.55
The book does touch on some truths (e.g. your thoughts create your reality and the power of affirmations). However, there is a kind of “used-car salesman”, “infomercial” tonality about the book, with phrases like “if you choose to follow some of the instructions but neglect to follow or refuse to follow others—you will fail. To get satisfactory results, you must follow ALL instructions in a spirit of faith”. The book is rife with these types of grandiose, snake oil type promises. My second issue with the book is that it emphasizes making money an obsession. I know..I know. The title “Think and Grow Rich” says it all and therefore a book about making money should not be a surprise to me. But making it an “obsession”? Really? In my personal belief system, the only obsession one should be seeking is Oneness with God, not constantly focused on making money. When you think about it, staying constantly focused on making money is a statement to the Universe that you don’t already have it. It is a constant statement of lack and, as such, you will constantly be trying to make money and not resting in the fact that you are already abundant (see Neville Goddard).25
Honestly, this was a great read. The stories of real life people he put in his book make it relatable. It is such an easy read too. I also enjoyed the questions he added in some chapters to help the reader think through their own life. Great read!55
This book is analogous to the writings of a moron. It also is eerily similar to “_______ with this ONE easy trick” or, “doctors hate him!”. If you know, you know. Don’t waste your time on this garbage.25
The book continues to promise answers in every chapter from beginning to end...‘ this book will tell you how...’ literally in every chapter...but never does. Shame. Waste of time.15
The book that changed my life.55
I waited a long time before reading this book because I thought I had read others like it such as rich dad poor dad, 48 laws of power,the secret etc. But I’m very happy I found this book at the right time in my life. It is an inspiration of practical proportions and easily applicable to everyday life. The author is painstaking in his presentation of the facts and the enlightenment and call to action I feel is testimony to a very powerful piece of literature. No matter what you want out of life read the book. It is applicable to any situation life offers.55
Greatest book I’ve ever read. I listened to the audiobook this time last year & it in no way compares to the feeling of understand I got from actually taking the time to read it page by page. Thank you for such a great read.55
