I love this book I own the 1987 edition and have read it several times over my life time. I have also read it with my 16 year old duaghter. The lesson in the book I have found to be timeless and priceless.

A great Book, a classic that everyone should read and capitalise on. ( )

I read this book many years ago and was assigned to read it again by a class I have taken. So many years later I am reintroduced to the research and concepts of the original success guru. Much of what Mr. Hill has to say is as true today as it has ever been no argument there. And there is so much to look at here but ultimately it comes down to one basic thing in my humble opinion, total focus on what you want. The dated references were a bit much at times as he encourages us to look into the great opportunities that exist in the new technology of radio. But by and large there is much to be gained my revisiting Mr. Hill.

First,to begin with,the action plan in this book is something to admire,something you'd wish all self help and inspirational writers would adopt,it's crazily effective.This beats all the other "Get rich" books by the other writers,I stand to be corrected.
Best ever.
