Reviews for Think And Grow Rich Original 1937 Edition:


March 12, 2016

Amazon has done us a huge disservice by lumping all the reviews for the various "original" versions of this book together. The version I purchased (black cover with money on the bottom, kindle version) is riddled with errors where the publisher evidently SCANNED the book in and then didn't bother to edit the results. Page numbers appear randomly in the middle of paragraphs, "m" appears where clearly "in" was intended and in some cases paragraphs just end in the middle of a sentence. This is a great book but some of the publishers have done a terrible job reproducing it and Amazon isn't helping by grouping very different copies together in the same review group.

I hope to update this review when I find a less crappy copy of this book, but avoid the version with the black cover with money on the bottom. (See pictures)

Skip this book
If you're looking for an edge in your pursuit of success, skip this book. 20 years ago I bought this book and it's ideas hook, line and sinker; however, after spending two decades on application it's apparent that the principles in this book are mostly nonsense. I am only going to take the time to highlight two pieces of misinformation in this book: visualization, and "the secret."

This book touts visualizing your goals as a method to speed up/ensure attainment. Research shows that the opposite is true. Visualizing your goals and imagining how it would feel to have achieved them has been show to consistently reduce drive and motivation. This book is full of misinformation like this, that if diligently applied will be counterproductive.

There is "the secret" alluded to in this book, and the subject of a nonsense DVD and book by the same title. The most important warning that I can give someone younger, after 20 years of time wasted looking for secrets is this: the only free cheese is in a mouse trap. Secrets to success do NOT exist. Time spent looking for "secrets" or applying them is time that could be invested in getting better at the fundamentals of whatever arena you are in.

One of the most basic examples would be personal finance: the only people getting rich off the "secrets of wealth" are the people selling those "secrets." Ultimately there are just a handful of things that matter in personal finance - get out of debt, live on a budget, invest in assets with a decent balance of risk & return, have a rainy day fund (and funds for other things you know are coming - Christmas gifts, college, etc.).

This book is selling a fantasy that appeals to deep biases that all humans have. Do yourself a favor, skip this book.

Timeless life lessons from one of the greatest self-development authors
Despite the age of this book, I found the underlying lessons it contained to be highly relevant to my life today. The most valuable ideas I gathered from this book:
1) You cannot acquire great wealth without a concrete plan for attaining that wealth, a serious passion that compels you to act on your plan continuously, and great faith that your plan will allow you to succeed.
2) Many of the world's greatest achievers were passionate to the point of obsession, and in order to emulate their success you must cultivate a desire until it becomes an obsession.
3) Material success does not come solely as a result of knowledge acquisition, but rather from one's ability to organize and transform specialized knowledge such that it can be delivered to a wide audience in the form of a product or service.
4) Persistence often makes the difference between success and failure. It is a state of mind that is essential to success and can be overcome through effort.
5) One of the common attributes of highly successful people is the ability to reach decisions quickly and to change them slowly. Most of us are the opposite.

This book is a real game changer!
I chose to read this book because I have met several people who have read it and they say, it's a game changer . This book is filled with confirmation , spiritual truth , and wisdom beyond your imagination. Reading this book could change your life if you adhere to the philosophies of many great men; including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and the great Dale Carnegie. These brilliant business minds all used the philosophies put together in one book written by Napoleon Hill...This book is brilliant!

1 star for the packaging
I received this book and was stunned when I pulled it out and found that it was a 100 page large paperback 8x10 book. The formatting and words inside the book are horribly formatted and set up. Whoever put this together must be an amateur, because I can't imagine that anyone would have approved something like this. Then I noticed the print date was the day I ordered it, which means this is a print-on-demand, which is usually a self-published set up. There's nothing wrong with that, but that means the person who took the text off the real Think and Grow Rich book didn't even transfer it correctly. I then looked at the Publisher and it says, "Createspace", which is a self-published imprint. That means someone took the text and bound it horribly into a book so that they can collect the royalties on someone else's famous book. I'm surprised Amazon has allowed this to happen and that no one has flagged this or pointed that out. This is really bad. I might've let this slide had they at least set this book up properly. It's clear an amateur did this. You'll have to make sure you're buying the right version, because Amazon has ridiculously linked this bootleg version with the real one. That means all the reviews on this page are mix and match. Some of them are talking about a different version. Check the publisher on the page and make sure it doesn't say, "Createspace". That's the illegal version.

I Found this in a street gutter! But it is on my top shelf for life as the best ever personal growth books. Bought Kindle vers
This book is a definitive classic and is really focused on how to manage oneself in order to enjoy a productive and successful life. This goes on the top shelf along with Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People for life long lessons on developing emotional intelligence and self-discipline although they were both written decades before the concept of EI was coined. Although first published in the early part of the 20th century, and while some terms are now dated, the concepts remain solid and this version has been revised with more modern stories of highly successful people. The stories which are intermixed within each chapter bring the concepts to life and keep the book lighter and more approachable. That said, this is a book worthy of study as each chapter addresses one of the key concepts or steps to leading a meaningful and productive life.

This one competes to be on any life list of personal growth/development books to study and re-read and ought to be on the mandatory read list for all youths who aspire to "do" anything with their lives - to heck with Grapes of Wrath (gasp!).

By the way, I after I purchased the kindle version, I found a hard copy abandoned along the beach bluffs and this "sign" inspired me to really dig into this book. It was nice to have the hard copy because when I find a book like this, I underline, notate and otherwise mark it up to highlight my personal take-aways. But I'm glad I also have the kindle so that I ALWAYS have it at my side. Buy both! (or perhaps you may find one in the gutter as I did).

The content is nonsense, tons of rubbish included in the book. Two reasons why i rated this book so low are:
1. In a large portion of the book, the author praises his own work. He even included a letter (which cover pages) of which only purpose is praising the book itself and have nothing to do with the content. By the time I read that the 13 principles in this book will make me rich, I’d realized that the rest of the content would be all rubbish, and my prediction turned out to be right.
2. The point he makes is all misleading. Whenever he addresses any point, the author COMPLETELY and DELIBERATELY hides the opposite side of the arguments and just continue praising the greatness of his point and support by various examples which, every now and then, are falsified.

TINY print makes this difficult to read
This gigantic book with HUGE print on the cover makes it look like a "Large Print" edition, but actually it has teeny tiny print on the inside on low-quality, gray-tinted paper. This is so horribly difficult to read without super-bright lighting and magnifying glasses. I don't need reading glasses normally, but sure do for this micro-print. Such a disappointment.

Earl Nightingale reads think and grow rich
I was under the impression this would be the whole book. Unfortunately it's not. It's two chapters of about 20 minutes each. More like a summary. Certainly wouldn't have spent my money on it if it had said somewhere immediately visible that this is a summary. (Still can't figure out where it says this if it does)

In your journey for success, and Ive read over 150 books on business and personal development, this is the godfather. The only true place to start. But be weary, because this book requests you physically do things outside of reading, such as writing your daily goals, writing your 6 steps and reciting them daily. You may consider these tasks mundane but this is the subconcious training that takes you from reading a book to changing your life. #DoTheWork requested in the book, otherwise it will be a waste of time to even read it.

Almost the same content than other editions
When I saw the word "unedited" I thought the book would be more similar to the manuscript, where people who had access to the manuscript could see that Napoleon Hills used the concept of Law of Attraction and the concept of vibration to explain why things work the way they do; in other words the elusive "Secret" that he writes about all over his book and never to be seing. No wonder it can't be found it was redacted by the publishers. It is a great book worth reading it but the Secret is to be found elsewhere.

November 25, 2019

Not worth your time and money
It is my opinion that this book has a few useful truths surrounded by lies. I think Napoleon Hill is a scam artist. He uses a few basic truths to make his lies feel more credible. Don't buy it. If you want to be rich, save a portion of your paycheck and invest it wisely. That's my honest and completely free opinion.

Buyer Beware of Version
Please think twice about which version you are really purchasing. I bought the tan cover with red stripes. Great price but I don't really trust that it's the original version. The first full line of copyright page contains multiple spelling errors: "No part of this book shell be reproduces or transmitted..."
Is it the original version? I don't know. I am returning and going to the store to make sure I get the real version. This version has larger pages but is only 104 pages long. I just don't know nor do I trust that it's the real version after reading the first page.
To the publisher: Please have your book proofread. These mistakes are unacceptable.

Wouldn’t recommend
Didn’t finish this book. The beginning made money almost like a religion.

Stop grouping reviews
This audiobook should NOT be grouped in with the full version of Think And Grow Rich. This is 42 minutes of Earl Nightingale telling you what principles are written in the original. Information that many know and can easily get in a 30 minute youtube video, which will be much more pleasant to listen to. I'm mad only because I clicked on the original full version then selected Audio. I only assumed that Nightingale was narrating the book. Should have looked much much closer. Charging over four dollars for this is outrageous!

False advertising
This is not the actual book. Just a 40 min overview of Earl Nightingale about what the book covers

October 29, 2019

Only for the gullible
This book is essentially a ploy to get your money. It's important to have a positive mindset, of course, and be open to opportunity but this book negates a LOT of important factors that go into financial independence.

October 29, 2019

Tiny book not 10 inches as advertised
Book was correct but the picture displayed is highly misleading. It says it’s 10 inches (screenshot included) but what came was 7, tiny print.

October 24, 2019

Be careful which version you buy!
This book is very big and odd to read. The text is really small and it feels like I’m reading out of a textbook instead of a nice normal book. I’ve listened to the audio so I was excited to have the book but this is a complete waste.

October 12, 2019

Don’t bother
It was terrible. Outdated.

September 28, 2019

Imaginary people and FAITH written over and over again....
This book is complete nonsense. I read all the way through to the chapter on "the sixth sense" hoping maybe I'd find some motivation into personal success, yet I have yet to learn anything. Every chapter iterates a principle that can be seen as common sense in anyone's mind. Nothing in this book motivated me to start my journey towards wealth and prosperity. In fact he tells you to imagine already being successful (so you don't even have to worry about actually being successful....). Anyways there are better books out there from the same time period (Win Friends and Influence People) that are much more practical in the real world.

Basics for beginners
I bought this book because it was recommended in a lot of top book lists, but i was disappointed.
If you have no clue about life/business, there are some interesting thoughts in there for you, but otherwise its just a waste of time, since it is relatively basic.
The book feels really cheap, since its so big and thin, i really dont like that.

September 19, 2019

So boring
This book is pretty short. It could be way shorter! It makes some valid points but they are stated 5761 times. I typically read 3 books a week. It took me 3 weeks to read this book. I often fell asleep.

September 19, 2019

Took out original content
Too many revisions - left out critical and valuable information. Buy the original for the same price!

May 12, 2019

Great Advice for the Gifted
This book is great advice for those gifted with great natural ability and creativity. Not much help for persons of average ability; however, probably worth reading for improvements in attitude it could make.
