No I don’t mean the little French dude, but Napoleon Hill. I first read about Napoleon Hill in a book by Paul McKenna. Napoleon Hill was born in 1833 in Virginia USA and died in 1970 following a long and successful career as a consultant to business leaders, lecturer and author. Napoleon Hill’s story is remarkable in itself. Hill was a reporter who was sent to interview Andrew Carnegie the Scottish steel magnate who had made his fortune after emmigrating to the United States. Carnegie saw in Hill some of the qualities that had made him successful in business. He challenged Napoleon Hill to interview the top 500 most successful business men and women in the United States and to write a book on his findings, and find out the “secrets” behind their success. This took hill over 20 years to complete.
He published his findings in the most inspirational book I have ever read “Think and Grow Rich” published in 1937. The people interviewed are a roll call of American business at that time and include 3 presidents. “Think and Grow Rich” has been re-published many times since 1937. The current updated edition was first published 2003 and includes more modern examples of the Carnegie secret in action. However for me it is the 1937 version that is the definitive version and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. You can download a free copy of “Think and Grow Rich” by clicking HERE. Enjoy the video of some of Hills quotes.
