Book Review: "Think and Grow Rich"

What's my rating for "Think & Grow Rich"?

I gave the book a 5 out of 5 Rockstar rating.

"Think & Grow Rich" is one of the few books I’ve read many times. To say it offers significant value for the money is an understatement. The author covers so many topics so densely, the material requires us to chew on the ideas and concepts presented, sometimes repeatedly.

I also find the book is effective in eliciting both reflection and action on the part of the reader. I dare anyone to say they’ve read this book and changed nothing in the way they think and/or live their lives.

People who do not succeed have one distinguishing trait in common. They know all the reasons for failure, and have what they believe to be air-tight alibis to explain away their own lack of achievement.
— Napoleon Hill, "Think and Grow Rich", p. 249.

What I didn't like about the book was the title. I don’t think this fact requires any deduction from its overall rating, but this book goes far beyond the concept of money. It’s about how we think and how we use energy. A more suitable title might have been a quote from the author’s mentor, Andrew Carnegie: “Whatever [You] Can Conceive and Believe [You] Can Achieve”.

The following are the three themes in the book that most resonate with me:

  1. The Power of Thought
  2. The Power of the Subconscious
  3. The Power of Purpose
