Think and Grow Rich Contents

In a prefatory note to the 1937 edition of Think and Grow Rich, Dr. Miller Reese Hutchinson, a prominent engineer and longtime associate of Thomas A. Edison, is quoted as saying: “This is not a novel. It is a textbook on individual achievement that came directly from the experiences of hundreds of America’s most successful men. It should be studied, digested, and meditated upon. No more than one chapter should be read in a single night. The reader should underline the sentences which impress him most. Later, he should go back to these marked lines and read them again. A real student will not merely read this book, he will absorb its contents and make them his own.” These instructions, given so long ago, still provide a helpful methodology for men and women to appreciate and apply the wisdom in Napoleon Hill’s groundbreaking self-help book. Organized according to the thirteen principles in Hill’s Law of Success philosophy, Think and Grow Rich details the secrets to harnessing the power of the mind to amass not only wealth, but also spiritual and emotional riches.
