Napoleon Hill of Think and Grow Rich Discusses Carnegie, Power of Mind

Napoleon Hill is one of the greatest personal success gurus that ever lived and was certainly a big influence on all the self proclaimed gurus you see today.  Hill first read his classic Think and Grow Rich about 4 years ago and I credit that book with giving me the extra push I needed to begin building from scratch.  I purchased the audio set several months ago and have been listening to those as well.  To hear this man speak his passionate wisdom in his own voice is a great way to pass the time in the car!  (I have to thank Chris Perruna for the heads up on the audio set Your Right to Be Rich).  Keep in mind this is not a recitation of the book, but rather of lectures he did around the country.

I just came across some rare video footage of Napoleon Hill over at YouTube.  There is very little video footage of Hill out there so it’s certainly worth a look.  He discusses a lecture from Andrew Carnegie and the one principle that Carnegie spoke of that changed the course of his own life forever.  The power to take possession of your own mind and direct it to whatever ends you may desire.

  1. I enjoyed reading your blog today, especially your post “Napoleon Hill of Think and Grow Rich Discusses Carnegie, Power of Mind,” and I thought that you might be interested to learn that a new edition of Napoleon Hill’s classic book “Think and Grow Rich” has been published.

    Its title is “Think and Grow Rich!” (subtitled) “The Original Version, Restored and Revised.” I am the editor/annotator of this new 416-page edition, which is really an homage to Dr. Hill. (For several years I was the editor-in-chief of “Think & Grow Rich Newsletter.”)

    What I have done is this: to restore Dr. Hill’s book to its original manuscript content (it was first published in 1937, but was abridged in 1960), annotate it with more than 50 pages of endnotes (most of the persons and events he discusses are generally unknown to readers today), index it thoroughly, add an appendix with a wealth of additional information about Dr. Hill and his work, and revise the book in ways to help remove certain “impediments” to reading the book today (language that today would be considered obsolete, sexist or racist). None of these things had previously been done with TGR.

    If you would like to learn a little more about this project, a quick visit to will give you some details. The “Editor’s Foreword” provides more complete information, and the “Testimonials” page will demonstrate how well-received this new book is around the world.

    Here is the book’s page…

    The book is available on all the Amazon websites and most other online sellers, it can be ordered by any bookstore, and it will start appearing in bookstores soon.

    Our edition of TGR! is superior in every way to other versions on the market. It is a trade paperback, not a pocket-size mass market paperback. It is unabridged. It is 416 pages versus 230+ (depending on the edition). It looks better, feels better, reads better than any other version. It is fast becoming the “version of choice” among Napoleon Hill devotees and other students of success and high achievement.

    Thank you for your time and attention.
