Think & Grow Rich

I'm amazed that this book is not mandatory reading in school
Think & Grow Rich is a classic motivational book. Written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie, it was published in 1937 at the end of the Great Depression. In 1960, Hill published an abridged version of the book, which for years was the only one generally available. In 2004, Ross Cornwell published Think and Grow Rich!: The Original Version, Restored and Revised, which restored the book to its original form, with slight revisions, and added the first comprehensive endnotes, index, and appendix the book had ever contained.

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 managed to achieve great wealth during the course of their lifetimes.

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

In 1992 Dennis Kimbro tailored Think & Grow Rich toward African Americans
Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice
is based on the principles of wealth that Napoleon Hill formulated in his phenomenal bestseller Think and Grow Rich. When Hill died, he left behind a manuscript aimed at the specific problems of black Americans, and the Napoleon Hill Foundation chose author and entrepreneur Dennis Kimbro to complete it. Kimbro combines Napoleon Hill’s law of success with his own vast knowledge of business, contemporary affairs, and the vibrant culture of Black America.

You may recognize some of the names dennis kimbro interviewed for Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice. These names included Spike Lee, Jesse Jackson, oprah Winfrey, Wally "Famous" Amos and Dr. Selma Burke. Whether you are an African American or not, this is still an interesting version of the great book to read.

Either book will work as a tool for changing behavior
