I'm listening to this as an audiobook while getting other things done. It was written in 1938 and I don't think has aged well, in regards to writing style. However you can't take a step into positive thinking/learned happiness/learned optimism waters without hearing about this book. It seems to be the primordial well from which all other positive thinking guides spring. So, I'm listening to it mostly as research so I know what the heck everyone is talking about. ( )

I was interested to read this because it inspired Bad Brains. Makes some good points and reiterates some ideas I've read in other books of the genre. ( )

The book was written just after The Great Depression of the 1930s, however, much of its advice is still relevant today. There are a few dated areas, but there are small, minor, and far-between. This book is as good today as it was then. ( )

Synopsis: Mr. Hill takes us through the process of thinking like a champ and tells us it will work.   My Thoughts: I suspect this book would be good for someone who actually wants to accomplish a large goal, or someone focused on attaining a large amount of money.   For me, I've accomplished the large goals in life I want [married, own our own place and work at a job I Iove] and money, while necessary, isn't something I want to be chasing after. I'm a Christian and the words Hill uses in describing how to attain riches are words I would only feel comfortable using about Jesus, not money.   However, there were some good tips about focusing, staying positive and other stuff. I am not a big non-fiction kind of guy. So if I read 2 non-fiction a year, I'm doing really good.   This was recommended to me by a really good friend who is a retired investment manager, so in all fairness, I actually finished this book more because of my respect of him than because of anything in this book.   Author: Napoleon Hill   Rating: 1 of 5 Stars     Crossposted at Bookstooge.booklikes.blogspot.wordpress.com " ( )
