Think and Grow Rich is a 1937 motivational personal development and self-help book written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by a suggestion from Scottish-American businessman Andrew Carnegie. While the title implies that this book deals only with how to get rich, the author explains that the philosophy taught in the book can be used to help people succeed in all lines of work and to do or be almost anything they want. For instance, Jim Murray (sportswriter) wrote that Think and Grow Rich was credited for Ken Norton's boxing upset of Muhammad Ali in 1973. The Reverend Charles Stanley writes "I began to apply the principles of (Think and Grow Rich) to my endeavors as a pastor, and I discovered they worked!". The book was first published in 1937 during the Great Depression. At the time of Hill's death in 1970, Think and Grow Rich had sold more than 70 million copies worldwide. Think and Grow Rich is listed in John C. Maxwell's A Lifetime "Must Read" Books List.

Think and grow rich
Amazing, I don't think there is any pretentiousness at all, the author is simply stating what he has learned, what you do with the information is your choice. I believe the most powerful line is that 'one thing we have absolute control over is our thoughts', think about that for a moment.....quite stupendous really! I also feel and it's something I will be doing is that you probably need to keep re-reading the book to absorb the message. DESIRE is key!
