"Think and Grow Rich" is a powerful, classic self-help book by Napoleon Hill. The book remains one of the most influential works ever published on personal achievement, financial independence and success that goes far beyond monetary gain.

The work was inspired by Andrew Carnegie, who shared his own personal achievement formula with Napoleon Hill. The book is a veritable how-to formula on achieving "whatever the mind can conceive." Hill conducted extensive research on success and was able to convince more than 500 wealthy men to reveal the sources and secrets behind their wealth.

Hill points out that great riches do not necessarily lend themselves to being measured in money alone. Riches can be found in lasting friendships, family relationships, peace of mind, and in spiritual values.

"Think and Grow Rich" presents a philosophy that will prepare listeners to become magnets for higher aspirations and ways of thinking which, in turn prepare the way for even greater riches and success.

Hill also shares how that, within the book, he has chosen to let the secrets he learned from Carnegie and other reveal themselves to the reader or listener of his chapters rather than to state the secrets right out.

Mr. Carnegie believed the formula should be part of every school's curriculum, including public schools and colleges.

Hill points out that the secret was used extensively in World War I by President Woodrow Wilson, who passed it along to each soldier as part of his training. Hill says that even Thomas Edison was in possession of this secret.

"Think and Grow Rich" remains the all-time best-selling book in its field.

Napoleon Hill lived from 1883-1970. He was born in Wise County, Virginia. He is known as the "Founder of the Science of Success."

Even though Hill was born into poverty, he was an achiever. He became an attorney and a journalist, working his way through school.

He eventually became advisor to U.S. Steel magnate, Andrew Carnegie and conducted studies and interviews of over 500 men who had gone from rags to riches. It took him 20 years to produce his landmark book that has inspired countless individuals to achieve.

This motivational personal-development and self-help book was 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, author Napoleon Hill explains that the philosophy taught in these pages can be used to help individuals do or be almost anything they want. For instance, according to sportswriter Jim Murray, Think and Grow Rich was credited for Ken Norton’s boxing upset of Muhammad Ali in 1973. At the time of Hill’s death in 1970, Think and Grow Rich had sold twenty million copies since its publication during the Great Depression in 1937. It remains Hill’s biggest seller and was listed by Businessweek as the sixth best-selling paperback business book seventy years after its publication. It is also on John C. Maxwell’s “Lifetime Must-Read” list.

Quotes & Awards

  • “During the past twenty-five years I have been blessed with more good fortune than any individual deserves, but I shudder to think where I’d be today, or what I’d be doing if I had not been exposed to Napoleon Hill’s philosophy. It changed my life.”

    Og Mandino, author and lecturer

  • “Napoleon Hill’s philosophy teaches you what you were never taught. Specifically: how to recognize, relate, assimilate, and apply principles whereby you can achieve any goal whatsoever that doesn’t violate Universal Law—the Law of God and the rights of your fellowman.”

    W. Clement Stone, chairman, combined international corporation president, The Napoleon Hill Foundation

  • “I knew Napoleon Hill in 1922 when I was a student in Salem College in the town of my birth. Mr. Hill came to our campus as the commencement speaker in that year. As I listened to him, I heard something other than just the words he spoke, I felt the substance—the wisdom—and the spirit of a man and his philosophy. Mr. Hill said, ‘the most powerful instrument we have in our hand is the power of our mind.’ Napoleon Hill compiled this philosophy of American achievement for the benefit of all people. I strongly commend this philosophy to you for achievement and service in your chosen field.”

    Senator Jennings Randolph, West Virginia

    " You may think me odd, but this has been on my "current read" for over a year. I was hitting it pretty hard, but this is one of those "how to set a goal" motivation books and I'm the type where I like to read one or two chapters, then try to adapt it. I bought it hardbound as recommended by my uncle. Definitely one to read again and again. I'm almost done! "

    " Great book, one to open at random for motivation after reading a few times. "

    " This book really helps one to know himself by doing a lot of self reflecting, self questioning and assessing. Very interesting! "
