    " I think i will be develop my self. "

    " This was the Jolly Girls Book Club latest read! I don't usually read "self help" books and was a bit nervous especially once I realized I had gotten my hands on the unabridged version of this book. But WOW! What a life changing book! I feel like if you read this book with an open mind you can take so many important lessons away from it. The priority in my life right now is not getting rich, I can barely make it through the day with all 4 children in tact. But what I love about this book, is how it instructs you to succeed in all aspects of your life. I love the parts about positive thinking and having a good attitude. Since this book was written in the 1930's some may say parts are dated, and they most likely are. But I found that to be part of the fun of reading it! I think it was so cool how the writer was contemporaries with people like Ford and Edison and Alexander Grahm Bell! He studied these amazing men first hand, and his experiences are invaluable. I have always believed our minds are so powerful and that our true potential is untapped. This book helped me to make a goal to reach that potential and to have the desire to become a success in everything that I decide to do. "

    " Love this book; this is my second time through. Lots of good information, advice, and perspectives. It's not all about making money, either... it's about living a rich, full, productive, satisfying life. It was written in the 1930's, and I enjoyed seeing how our language and phrasing have changed over the years. Read it with an open mind and you'll definitely get something out of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 2/3/2014

    " If only it were this easy, we'd all be millionaires. So maybe we can't all think ourselves rich, but nevertheless Napoleon Hill's words inspire us to believe that anything is possible with a positive mental attitude. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Praney Deb | 1/30/2014

    " One of the most inspiring books i have EVER read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon | 1/29/2014

    " Excellent book, long, but many take aways, historical book etc. need to listen to/read again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen Francis | 1/17/2014

    " A bit (and by a bit I mean very) outdated in terms of cultural content in parts, but actually some wisdom that applies across the ages if you really evaluate it. I'm trying to figure out exactly how to harness my sexual energy to make my millions. That's a thinker. But it's all in the title. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dina | 1/5/2014

    " This book is more relevant today than ever. Going back to the oldies but goodies is a good thing!Napoleon Hill interviewed/researched more than 40 millionairs and shares the commonality among them.This was a .99cent App on my iPad called, "Self Help Classics", Fantastic!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Uy | 12/31/2013

    " What better way to learn how to accumulate great wealth than to learn it from the people who's achieved it. I think this is a must-read for anyone who has dreams of achieving great things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tan Jun Jie | 12/29/2013

    " Simply insightful and a pleasure to read. Highly motivating book which has the ability to compel people to follow the habits of a successful person. Absolutely life-altering... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexandra Wickfree | 12/16/2013

    " Still reading - and most other marketing books/ DS/ money making books copy his principles. The Sceret is a distilled and modern day version of this seminal work and is garabge in comparision to Napoleon Hill "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kendall | 12/5/2013

    " This book is absolutely amazing. It basically gives you a step by step guide to achieving anything in your life. It uses the law of attraction to your advantage. This is a must read of you want to make things happen. "

    " A classic in the self-help literature. But since I'm not yet rich, I guess I ought to re-read it... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 M | 12/25/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 5/4/2011

    " Very interesting book. Like a series of articles, poorly organized with no coherent conclusion. Still, fascinating to read a book this old and recognize how very relevant most of it still is. Lots of true priciples I will endeavor to apply even though the writer is a sexist, atheist. Oh well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally | 4/21/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 4/5/2011

    " One of my favorite quotations growing up came from this book. I recently downloaded it to my kindle and am reading it in bits and pieces. Although it is very 1920s male-oriented, business book, etc. I still find many of the quotations inspiring and motivational. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 4/4/2011

    " One the the best non-fiction books that I have ever read. This guy (Napoleon Hill) was so far ahead of his time. I've used the story "Three Feet from Gold" countless times as a sales manager throughout my career in the professional world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justice | 4/1/2011
