Who is Napoleon Hill? What is his book Think and Grow Rich about?

Napoleon Hill, born in 1883 in Virginia, is one of the most illustrious authors of all time in personal success literature. Thanks to his years of experience, he has crafted books that focus mainly on how an individual can gain enormous success. Most importantly, his books are written for the common man who sometimes thinks that it’s almost impossible to make large amounts of money. Hill proves that it’s definitely possible to achieve heights with perseverance and personal beliefs. Think and Grow Rich is a best seller and has sold more than 20 million copies and if you read it, you’ll know why. Hill’s personal achievements don’t end there as he also served as an advisor of President Franklin Roosevelt for three years.

Think and Grow Rich is a compilation of thoughts by some very powerful people back in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Long ago, Andrew Carnegie sought a journalist who had the ability to pen his thoughts on success. Carnegie was spectacularly successful already because he had sold his Carnegie Steel Company to JP Morgan for a whopping $480 million in 1901. Today, that would be worth 310 billion, which makes him one of the wealthiest men of all time – and much wealthier than Bill Gates and Warren Buffett combined.

After a while, Carnegie approached Napoleon Hill to find out whether he would be interested to pen a book that would disclose Carnegie’s secrets to become successful. He also wanted Hill to talk to at least 500 millionaires and compile their thoughts on how they perceived success. However, he had one condition – Napoleon Hill had to do it for free! As he presented his offer, Hill thought about it and accepted it and it was then that Carnegie told him that if he hadn’t accepted his proposal in under a minute (he also showed a clock he was using to time his answer!), his proposal would be retracted. Fortunately for all of us, Hill accepted in about 46 seconds and went ahead to create a book that would be one of the best sellers of all time in history. The book originally consisted of 22 volumes and was later filtered to 250 pages. Hill took about 20 years to master this book to perfection.
