    Be The Best "You" Possible

    Those were Wally Amos's words. And this book is an excellent source to help you to get there.While I have read the original book, "Think and Grow Rich, by Napolean Hill,12 times, I believe that this is an excellent book to read, in addition to the original, for all races, and in particular African-Americans.Writing a book that targets the black audience, as this book does may lead readers to ask, "Why 'we' or 'they' need something different, or special?This is analogous to asking, "Why do they need a Black networking group?"And my answer, as is the essense of Dr. Kimbro's answer, is that someone who is not African-American does not have the same challenges as an African-American has; therefore, identifying the resources, problems and possibilities, via a book, and networking that targets African-American, is an excellent way to answer the questions that Napoleon Hill couldn't answer on a level that Kimbro could answer - combining direct experiences, and...

    Among my first batch of books...greatest influence on attaining personal achievement in life!

    The first batch of significant books that had the greatest influence on me in terms of attaining personal achievement includes mostly Napoleon Hill's books:- The Law of Success;- Think & Grow Rich;- The Keys to Success;- Success through a Positive Mental Attitude;- Succeed & Grow Rich through Persuasion;The others were from Clement Stone, Dale Carnegie, & Earl Nightingale.That was the early 70's when I had just started work as a young engineer.The author, Napoleon Hill, had impressed me most by his relentless dedication in spending some two to three decades of his life in pursuing & researching the success secrets of the rich & famous...with a little help from Andrew Carnegie, of course.As matter of fact, many of the famous people he interviewed were also favourite role models of mine e.g. Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, just to name a fewTill this day, I have never...

    The first true proactive success guru.

    "Napoleon Hill's Keys to Success" is one of those books that after you read it you begin to refer to the earlier part of your life as "before I read the book." Even before you finish reading it the first time, you will be a changed person - it's that incredible. I say first time because you will want to read it again and again.Napoleon Hill's books have been a treasured part of my library. I've recommended this one to others countless times. I consider Napoleon Hill to be one of the earliest "proactive thinkers" in the world.If you haven't read this book before, get ready for profound wisdom. Napoleon Hill makes it easy to understand that our thoughts are things and have God given powers, far beyond what is commonly taught by others. I can tell you from my own astonishing situations experiences that, "your success really is most definitely determined by what and how you think."You will find that this exciting book becomes...

    Truly inspirational. Builds upon "Think and Grow Rich".

    There are thousands of self-help books out in the market and hundreds of self proclaimed "gurus" who have made a living by copying the wisdom in Napoleon Hill's books. As I went through some of those books I realized that there was not much in them that Hill had not already written about. I recommend quality over quantity. Instead of reading through many books, I recommend that you study the following works of Hill and internalize his wisdom:1. (1937) - I recommend the Action Pack edition,2. - this book,3...

    Good. But not the best of Napoleon Hill's CDs

    This is a good CD. I own it and have listened to it a few times. Earl Nightingale gives a clear summary of Think and Grow Rich. To me, Napoleon Hill is the greatest success author/speaker ever and Think and Grow Rich is the single greatest book I have ever read. However, a part of this particular CD feels like an advertisement and could have been skipped. Also, the editorial reviews and the narrator of this CD talk about 13 principles. This could sometimes be the cause of confusion. Hill organized 13 Steps Toward Riches (in Think and Grow Rich) and 17 Principles of Personal Achievement (in his courses and lectures), also referred to as 17 Keys to Success. This CD talks about the 13 Steps in T&GR.I would recommend this CD to you only after you have heard the 9 CD set that contains twelve hours worth of live lectures in Napoleon Hill's own voice. The set is called...

    Timeless source of Motivation...

    There are certain books that I have read over the course of my life that I come back to on occasion because the information remains relevant and valuable. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill is one of those books. I have read it several times in paperback (most recently last year) and because I see it as more of a resource than just a book, I just purchased a copy of the book for my Kindle to have on hand at all times.Some of the information is dated (like the section on how to apply for a job in the original 1937 version). Despite this fact I prefer the original. It demonstrates the change in attitude about business and the way that services are provided as a result of the Great Depression. If you have never read a motivational book, or you are interested in becoming a business man, I highly recommend this book...

    Great classic book, but this Kindle version falls short

    Argubly, Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" is the forerunner of all modern personal success books. The book does a great job of roadmapping the steps to great personal achievement and subsequent wealth and I can see why so many people, including my pastor, have recommended this book to me throughout the years. While some might find the writing style to be a bit archaic, I find this book to be simplistic in writing style and well-executed -- very easy to understand. The principles outlined in "Think and Grow Rich" deal with everything from preparing for job interviews to building wealth, by focusing on behaviors and habits that are within each individual's control.Some of the examples in this book may not be as applicable today, but I do think the majority and core components of the advice provided is quite relevant even if at first glance it seemingly doesn't appear relevant. Sometimes books of a philosophical nature can have a tendency to be extremely esoteric,...

    And it does not have `Millionaire' in the title!

    Books on similar subjects appear to arrive several at a time. In addition to this particular work, I have another three all with the word `Millionaire' in the title (two very different works both called "How to think like a Millionaire" and one called "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind). No!, they do not show you how to go out and win the lottery or obtain the secret of some other get-rich-quick scheme. If they did, I would describe them all as rubbish and demand a refund from the publisher.Leaving those other works aside, this book shows you how to look after and make the most of what you have. My father always used to decry the fact that "money always goes to money." Of course, if you have a lot and are getting a decent rate of interest, then, of course, it does. But I also remember a young married soldier from many years ago who owned a very up-market car, a nice towing caravan, a small removals lorry and had the finest furniture in his married quarter. Those vehicles...

    Ensure you purchase only The Complete Classic Text or one that is totally based on the Original text Published in1937

    Finding a true original version of Think and Grow Rich has been a major challenge. Some of the Mass Market Paperbacks produced are not complete for example Wilder Publications 2007 has the following;Pg113 "before Lord Cornwall is surrendered" - Should be "before Lord Cornwallis surrenderedPg 115 "penalties of an Mt of Henry VIII" - Should be "of an Act of Henry VIII"Pg 119 "The habit of decisions acquired" Should be "The habit of indecision acquired". This one is critical as the context of the message is completety changed with the wrong word.All I can add further is that "Think and Grow Rich - The Complete Classic Text" published by Tarcher Peguin & "Think and Grow Rich The Orginal Classic" published by Capstone seem to be the original text based on the 1937 edition.Hope this helps others as it has been extremely frustrating studying this great book and finding...

    I owe everything to this book

    I was introduced to "Think and Grow Rich!" by an alcoholic member of our cemetery sales team. I had a wife and three children at the time, and we were just barely making it. My only source of income was the commissions I made knocking on doors selling cemetery property, and they were hard to come by, especially since almost nobody was a permanent resident in the Miami area. Reading "Think and Grow Rich!" gave me a crutch to lean on as I forced myself out to pound those doors where the potential prospects were. If my family was going to eat, I had to convince people to buy cemetery property 30 or 40 or more years before they would need it. The Six-Step Success Formula the book contains helped me to realize that there was a way even for an uneducated lunkhead like me to make it like the big guys. I followed the success formula faithfully, and, lo and behold, my whole life turned around. Two of my most useful tools in the book are the poem "My Wage" ("I...
