Abstract:

Born into poverty himself, Napoleon Hill became the protégé of steel baron Andrew Carnegie, who introduced him to the most famous self-made multi-millionaires of the age. They revealed to Hill the secrets they had used to pull themselves out of poverty and create their own success. In every chapter, Hill cites real-life examples based on this first-hand knowledge. Interviewing more than five hundred of the most affluent men and women of his time, Hill uncovered the secret to great wealth: if we can learn to think like the rich, we can discover wealth and success. He developed a thirteen-step formula to help you to: identify your goals; master the secret of true and lasting success; obtain whatever you want in life; and join the ranks of the super-successful. Written during the Great Depression, against a backdrop of millions of people out of work and a looming world war, Napoleon Hill's magnum opus held out hope that life could get better. While not considered part of the New Thought movement, Hill drew on many of their concepts and techniques. He prefigured the "Prosperity Consciousness" of present-day New Age thinkers and a host of motivational writers and speakers have followed in his footsteps.
