Think and Grow Rich is a motivational book written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by a suggestion by Scottish-American billionaire Andrew Carnegie. It was published in 1937 during the Great Depression.[1] It remains the biggest seller of Napoleon Hill's books, selling a claimed 30 million copies over the next 70 years (although Alice Payne Hackett's 70 Years of Best Sellers suggests the figure was lower).

The text of Think and Grow Rich! is founded on Hill's earlier work The Law of Success, the result of more than twenty years of research based on Hill's close association with a large number of individuals who achieved great wealth during their lifetimes.

At Andrew Carnegie's bidding, Hill studied the characteristics of these achievers and developed 15 "laws" of success intended to be applied by anybody to achieve success. Think and Grow Rich! condenses these laws further and provides the reader with 13 principles in the form of a philosophy of personal achievement.

  • Amazing book!

    By Z&er
    I have read many books, but this one really has the greatest formula to effect positive change in almost every area of ones life. I do my best to reread it at least once a year, along with handful of other brilliant writings. I pick up or understand something new from a different vantage point each time I read it.
  • Just a thought...

    By Shola8486
    I've read a few of the comments on here and I just wanted to remind you all that one of the unspoken rules of the Truth in this book is that you must be Christ-like. You can never actively disparage or disrespect your fellow man. Your potential for power is directly tied to your goodwill and love for mankind. If someone is trolling or has a legitimate misunderstanding or difficulty in understanding just politely suggest that they persist and continue to read, we are all human and so the Truth will arrive to them eventually if they persist, it's inevitable. The nature of our broken world has taught people not to believe in ourselves, our humanity and, by extension, the Truth. Try not to ridicule and put down those that are struggling to pull the wool from their eyes, you cannot know their mind and their traumas. Be kind.

  • Grow rich

    I have mixed feelings with this book, but it still deserves your read if you're actively pursuing success, and you need best practices. The author could use better examples, but, if you really look at its aim (successful thoughts), then everything else will fall to the side, and you'll end up heading in the right direction. decent read.
  • Poor Advices with Daydreaming Belief

    By Sayz Lim
    I set out to read this book with high expectation to learn the habit that makes these rich people “rich”, not just monetary but also in providing value. The point that stops me from reading is when the author tells the readers to imagine and burn the bridge to pursue their goals. This advice, while sounds great to motivate people, can cause a lot of people to make a bad decision that will cause them a lot of time spent on discovering their life purpose to become rich. Being persistent to achieve your goals is not enough. Bulls can be pretty persistent, but they can’t get out of the iron cage. Learn the desire to become rich by understanding the value you want to create.

    By JWboudar
    If you are looking to change your life in a big way i say you cant go wrong with "Think and grow Rich" this book will effect you with every passage. Napoleon HIll spent a quarter of a century working out this science and his gift to all future generations should not go to waste. READ IT, STUDY IT, LIVE IT AND THEN THINK AND GROW RICH. If you have, like me, been moved by the reading of this novel please SHARE THE KNOWLEDGE!! these are ideas that every one can adapt to their lives. P.s. The first time i found think and grow rich i was 17 years young and i now read a chapter daily. This has, in a way, become my bible!
  • Do It

    By TheOnlyWay
    @ "what is gonin on here" YOUR BRAIN FAILED! idiot. The manipulation of your subconscious mind and creation of positive state of mind is the only way to success. In order to live a happy and fulfilled life you must form the correct habits and beliefs. It has scientific basis proven by great psychiatrists and psychologists like Freud and Pavlov amongst many others. This book was the first to identify this technique and is still one of the best and most powerful ways to success. Don't just read it, do what it says. I did, it works.
