“I first read
Think and Grow Rich! 30 years ago at age 18. I found it to be the most fascinating book I had, or have ever read, excluding the word of God. It is much more than instructions on how to obtain wealth. It strengthens your spirit, your soul, and promotes the proper attitude to achieve peace, endurance, and a loving family—the real measures of success in life. My life has been richly blessed as a result of reading and rereading Think and Grow Rich! Dr. Hill performed a wonderful work for mankind and was a useful vessel for God when he wrote this book for all people and all ages. I know all readers will be enriched upon reading this new edition of Think and Grow Rich!”

– Emerson B. Hall, President of TruBody Shaving Gels

Think and Grow Rich! has had a tremendous impact on my life. My company, Contours Express, would not exist if not for this book. And now, seven years, 15 additional readings, and more than 350 fitness centers later, I still find new personal and business applications each time I read it. Without question this is the greatest business book ever written."

– Daren Carter, founder of Contours Express fitness centers, located in six countries

“Dr. Hill’s original work transformed the 20th century. This newly revised version will do the same for the 21st century. No writer, thought leader or guru of personal growth and development comes close to Napoleon Hill. This landmark work takes his stature to an even more monumental level.”

Think and Grow Rich! is timeless and will continue to change lives. It’s powerful in turning people's dreams and passions into life-long realities. It did mine and still remains my number one reference book."

– Don L. Price, professional speaker, author, sales/marketing and positive change solution provider

“As a professional speaker, I found many years ago that those people who studied personal development books were reading too many books and not internalizing any of them. Thus, I wondered what would happen if people read just one or two books over and over again and internalized the information. That's exactly what I recommend as a professional speaker to audiences worldwide and the results have been amazing. In order to teach the incredible concepts in
Think and Grow Rich!, I read the book once a month, every month, for 5 years—60 times in all! It is the most powerful book in the world when it comes to setting goals and achieving them. The simplicity of the concepts in the book is the reason it is so valuable. According to Hill, it all begins with a clear desire and a concrete game plan. It's no wonder this book has produced more millionaires than any other book.”

– Boaz Rauchwerger, speaker, trainer, consultant and author of
How to Become a Debt-Free Money Magnet

“It took me 17 years to become World Champion, but I always knew, deep down, that I would win the 'big one' someday. Napoleon Hill's
Think And Grow Rich! changed my life. It inspired and excited me, and with the belief in myself I received through its pages, I, too, passed the 'persistence' test and achieved my lifetime goal. This life-changing book will help you achieve your goals too!”

– Peter Ebdon, World Snooker Champion 2002

"I was introduced to
Think and Grow Rich! as a high school student. This book was recommended to me by my teacher who taught a class called 'Everyday Living.' At that point in my life I suffered from low self-esteem, and this book was a motivating factor for me. It gave me a new lease on life when I realized I could do anything if I had the desire and believed I could achieve my goals."

– S. Truett Cathy, founder, Chairman and CEO of Chick-fil-A, Inc.

“Napoleon Hill’s writings have influenced my life to understand that our God-given destiny is to soar on eagles’ wings. You have to stretch yourself before you can soar, and once you have a burning desire, a significant goal you can stretch much farther than you previously had thought possible. Beware: Every time an eagle raises its wings to fly, someone will put an arrow to the bow, but remember, eagles can soar higher than any arrow can fly. May this revised and updated edition of Napoleon Hill's
Think and Grow Rich! enable you to Reach—Stretch—Soar!”

Appleseeds and author of The Sower’s Seeds series
