In 1937, the late author Hill penned the classic, Think and Grow Rich, which motivated millions of people. His teachings continue to be disseminated through the Napoleon Hill Foundation, with this latest book serving as the most recent example, offering a set of key tenets gleaned from his many lectures on leading a prosperous life. Beginning with defining the need for purpose in connection with our jobs and what we do in life, Hill goes on to apply the motives (e.g., desire for personal expression and self-preservation) possessed by all who wish to accomplish their goals, helpfully listing the major causes of failure (e.g., lack of self-discipline, lack of ambition).
VERDICT Hill's writing continues to prove timeless, and his advice remains on target for readers today.
