It is a very thought-stimulating, informative, life-changing book and I would definitely recommend reading it.
Napoleon Hill was definitely ahead of his time, some of the philosophical concepts that was mentioned in this book were things that I only heard of in the last couple of years. Unfortunately some facts (scientific or the value of money) is out of date which makes it a bit more difficult to understand as a 21st century reader.
I still love this book however, I feel like there were a lot short-comings to warrant it a 5 star. It is EXTREMELY repetitive, and although it is meant to be that way so the readers can remember the content, nevertheless I do feel its a bit too much. This book would so much better if it were about 300-400 pages, and will be an amazing guide for people starting up. 1100 pages seems a bit daunting! With the increased length I feel like some parts were unnecessary and didn’t help make the point any stronger but rather weakens the argument (ie. chapter 14 about tolerance but spent big part talking about the ways to stop warfare – which I felt was a bit out of place). My last complaint is the manner in which the author deliver his evidences for the points he makes. He utilises rhetorics to name A LOT of examples, but does not go into depth in most of them and this sounds vague and superficial.
For people wanting to best assimilate the content from this book, I recommend reading it aloud, because it reads a bit like a lecture and being able to hear it will help you understand it better.
Ok before we get to the review understand that this is a big book. I totally suggest reading the chapters slowly to really internalize each teachings and subject
Great great book! I understand that the Laws that Napoleon highlighted are not new or has been talked about by many other authors in the subject. But what makes Napoleon’s book stand out is how he explained each topic with great examples. It’s definitely eye opening to understand his teachings through the lenses of someone who can be considered historic. His examples are timeless and simplistic in nature but they are still very applicable today. There’s nothing scientific in this book. His examples are through personal experience by himself and other great successful individuals of his time (anecdotal evidence)
The only thing that I didn’t like about the book is the fact that the specific audiobook I listened too had too much “reviews from Napoleon’s readers”. Of course I’m sure there’s better copies out there but this was my main gripe. Petty but it totally affected my focus of the book
It is not scientific and it was written a lot of years ago, so some parts of the book just don’t make sense, taking into account what we know nowadays, and it can be a bit boring.
Also, one may think that what is written is common sense… in my opinion, it is. However, we often forget the basics and this actually helped me to think about my life, my goals, and my behaviors, so I guess that’s a plus.
If you’re a psychologist, I don’t think you are going to like it. Read it anyway, because I would love to know your opinion.
If you’re not a psychologist and don’t often spend time thinking about your life, your goals or your actions, it can be a good book for you (good luck with the almost 700 pages ;))
This book is simply a must read ! Despite some parts being repetitive this is work that you can always trust , no matter wich moment you are going or facing in your life.
Its not a smooth read but i assure you bigger personal rewards in your daily life than most self-helpbooks out there.
Napoleon Hill teaches us how to be classy, confident , how to be a better person. Its a rich book, meaning you will find the deep roots of positive thinking , compensation and the law of attraction . All of this displayed by the autor in simple laws that any human being can do, rich or poor, sad or happy. This book can change your life.
“No matter who you are or what may be your

always your next move. Move with quick DECISION
and Time will favor you. Stand still and Time will
wipe you off the board.
You cannot always make the right move, but, if
you make enough moves you may take advantage of
the law of averages and pile up a creditable score
before the great game of LIFE is ended. “
The longest book I have ever read. Similar to “Think and Grow rich” but contains more. If you have the patience to read this long book you have a good chance to be successful.
