Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow RicheBook - 2011
Think and Grow Rich, originally published in 1937, is a book that helped launch the personal development genre. Written by Napoleon Hill, the book outlines thirteen principles to achieving success and is considered a classic by business and success gurus. It is also consistently listed in Business Week's list of best selling business books. The book idea came from Andrew Carnegie who believed there was a formula to success and challenged Hill to interview or analyze 500 successful people and compile the information into an easy-to-read strategy. Although not sure he was up to the task, Hill completed the interviews and organized the results into the Laws of Success (1928) and eventually into Think and Grow Rich.
