Think and grow rich
This book is a self help book that I think really works. I think it's a great book which really helps you in lots of ways. It's interesting throughout. I never once got bored reading it.
This book was written after the great depression to help people to get back into work. It talks and takes you through steps to get a job or start your own business. It tells you how to be a good, understanding leader and to be a fair leader. I don't think this book can be put under the same category as some of the self help books that the book Sham talks about.
For many years the author Napoleon Hill interviewed and followed allot of rich and successful people such as Henry Ford and Charles Schwab. He has some interesting stories about some of these people and how they became successful.
It was originally written in the 1930's. Which I thought would now be out of date and irrelevant to things these days but, I was wrong! I felt pretty much everything was relevant to our way of living today.
It is not a get rich quick scheme. I found it actually puts things into perspective. He has put ways and plans into his book that I found, if followed properly could make life a lot easier and less stressful.
It starts of and continues throughout pointing out and making things clear in our lives, such as the reasons why we fail in areas of our lives, or even why we succeed in areas in our lives.
There's a practical part on business, Such as the need to having a
definite plan when starting out in business. Also he talks about when in business you need to give a good service to people .This needs to be done in a good way, to have a long and successful business. This is pointed out in the section when he talks about the qqs way of doing things (quantity, quality, and spirit).
In another chapter it helps you to put together a decent CV and how to apply for a position you want.
There are loads of good tips in this book for everyone. It makes you stop and think that the problems in our lives aren't always caused by other people.
You can read this book more than once and each time found it helped me out in lots of ways.
In one of the chapters Napoleon Hill talks about the subconscious mind which I found had some practical ways of thinking.
Towards the end of the book Napoleon Hill writes about relationships such as divorce, marriage etc which was interesting.
For future reference I found it was a good idea to highlight the parts of the book that you need to remember. There are some great lines in this book about different subjects such as leadership and self control.
I bought this book for around £5 of Amazon. There are deferent copies of the book that vary in price.
The only thing I thought was that some of the layout of the book could have been a little bit better and clearer. You may find one or two of the stories are a little pointless, although I may have missed the point of them being told in this book.
A great book that I couldn't put down, allot more than just a self help book it's a book that I found eye opening and interesting. This is a book that will keep you thinking through.
Although this book was written in the 1930's it is as true today as it was when it was written.
I have read somewhere between 70 and 100 wealth and personal development books and this is by far the best. It has literally changed my life and I recomend it to eveyone. This really is the best £5 you will spend in your life!
Other books on this subject just repeat, copy or expand on this book. Anthony Robins and many others are all just re packaging the work done by Napoleon Hill. Basically at the request of Andrew Carnegie he spent 20 years interviewing and studying the top 100 sucessful people in America at the time. This included everyone from business tycoons to the president. Based on this research Hill identified 13 principles which are the basis of this book. Hill reveals the true secrets of wealth and how to aquire it, this book really does have the potential to make you rich, both financially and spiritually.
If you are still not convinced take a look at the reviews on AMAZON this speaks for itself!
How to have it all. Be rich, successful, happy. The secrets of success of over 504 of the richest people in america's history. There are many books on self-improvement. In fact these days it seems like everyone is writing them. The more you read, the more a common thread starts to appear through many of them. This book was first published back in 1937. Ah-ha you are saying, it'll all be out of date now. The way to make money has changed. But has it really? Napoleon Hill went on a twenty-odd year project to interview the most successful people who had build empires and wealth to see what the common factors were. The results are startling, if not life-changing. This book really does make you stop and THINK. The principles do work too. Even a limited application of them is likely to improve your life. It is also a book you need to read several times, ideally with some time in between. Some of the later sections sound like fantasy and delusion, but as time goes by and you apply the earlier lessons and read around more you start to see the shapes of what he says emerging despite it sounding unbelievable. If you are going to read one self-improvement book then read this one. I've read many of the ones out there, and in some ways this is the one they are all based on. Read it - It might change your life.
You think shakespeare was a literary Giant? Maybe, but the book I want to tell you about is the only book that has undoubtedly affected my life. Think and Grow Rich, written by Napolean Hill, is a book that is worth its weight in gold. Don't be put off by the tacky title. This is not a get rich quick scheme, nor is it an overnight fix. This is an honest and sensible plan to teach you from the bottom up just what it takes to achieve riches. Whether it is physical or spiritual riches that you want, this book will help you. I first read this book when I was 16, after being kicked out by my parents and finding myself severely down on my luck. This book taught me the lessons that I should have been taught at school and at home, to have faith in myself, to have determination and a burning desire to succeed. My three children will all be getting a copy of this as soon as they are old enough! By the time I was seventeen I had set up my first business. I wasn't rich by any means, but I had my first proof that if you have an idea, enough conviction and a willingness to work hard then you'll win through. These are all the topics covered in this book. This book is an effective guide to the science of self improvement. Although the field of self -help is awash with crappy and ridiculous books that make wild empty promises this is different I promise you. If you can embrace the essence of what Napolean Hill is saying, then apply them in your daily life, you cannot fail. After 20 years observing the habits and manner of hugeley successful people Hill uncovers the steps neccessary to take charge of your life, develop a plan of action and go forward with confidence. He illustrates his points with lively anecdotes that stick in your mind and reinforce the message. The advice is simple to follow, and it doesn't require a university degree to understand the concepts that Hill puts forward. It is easier read
ing than an Enid Blyton story! The style is a touch American and at times a little cheesy but the gravity of what Hill tells us makes that a mere triviality. Although this is supposed to be a review, I don't want to spoil it for you by giving it all away, I JUST WANT YOU TO BUY IT. I am deadly serious. I've just checked amazon and they have it in stock, the paper back is less than a fiver. You could blow five quid on a takeway tonight, or you could order this book. If any of you follow my advice and read this book, please leave a comment for future readers. If any of you have already read it then let others know what it did for you. The only barrier to success is self made. Now what are you waiting for, get going to amazon.co.uk NOW.
