Napoleon Hill : Think and Grow Rich
Napoleon Hill was born in 1883 in a one-room cabin on the Pound River in Wise County, Virginia. He began his writing career at age 13 as a “mountain reporter” for small town newspapers and went on to become America’s most beloved motivational author.
In 1908 Andrew Carnegie encouraged him to organize the world’s first philosophy of personal achievement. He was an advisor to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and created the “Mental Dynamite” study course ( a 17 volume program) before the start of the Second World War.
Hill passed away in November 1970 after a long and successful career writing, teaching, and lecturing about the principles of success. His work stands as a monument to personal achievement and is considered the cornerstone of modern motivational thinking. His book, Think and Grow Rich, is the all time bestseller in the field.
Napoleon Hill: Outwitting the Devil
In 2012 a new book from Napoleon Hill was published. The book had been thought too controversial for publication when Hill wrote it in 1938, shortly after Think and Grow Rich. In Outwitting the Devil: The Secret to Freedom and Success Hill digs deep revealing that fear, procrastination, anger, and jealousy prevent us from realizing our personal goals. Annotated and edited for a contemporary audience Outwitting the Devil is profound, powerful, resonant, and rich with insight.
Hill established the Napoleon Hill Foundation (http://www.naphill.org/ ) as a nonprofit educational institution whose mission is to perpetuate his philosophy of leadership, self-motivation, and personal achievement.
