The Law of Success - Napoleon Hill

Services for Real Estate Pros with Watch My Listings

Hi Everybody, 

Don't let the title scare you, it's not one of "those" self-help type of books.

A very good friend gave me this book when I had come to the end of my previous career and from the moment I started reading it, and all the way through the course of completing it I was Comforted and Inspired and Convinced that I was headed in the right direction. From time to time, I use it as a reference when I need a little refresher.

I did a search to see if anybody else in the group had recommended it, and didn't find any, so I thought I'd share it with the group. If somebody else has already recommended it, just consider my post another happy reader.

I just joined the group today, and I'm looking forward to finding some great books.

All the Best,

Sean Alvarez

I enjoyed reading your blog today, and it occurs to me that you might be interested to learn that a new edition of Napoleon Hill's classic book "Think and Grow Rich" has been published.
Its title is "Think and Grow Rich!" (subtitled) "The Original Version, Restored and Revised." I am the editor/annotator of this new 412-page edition, which is really an homage to Dr. Hill. (For several years I was the editor-in-chief of "Think & Grow Rich Newsletter.")  
What I have done is this: to restore Dr. Hill's book to its original manuscript content (it was first published in 1937, but was abridged in 1960), annotate it with more than 50 pages of endnotes (most of the persons and events he discusses are generally unknown to readers today), index it thoroughly, add an appendix with a wealth of additional information about Dr. Hill and his work, and revise the book in ways to help remove certain "impediments" to reading the book today (language that today would be considered obsolete, sexist or racist). None of these things had previously been done with TGR.
If you would like to learn a little more about this project, a quick visit to will give you some details. The "Editor's Foreword" provides more complete information, and the "Testimonials" page will demonstrate how well-received this new book is around the world. Here is the book's page: 

The book is available on all the Amazon websites and most other online sellers, it can be ordered by any bookstore, and it will start appearing in bookstores soon.       
Our edition of TGR! is superior in every way to other versions on the market. It is a trade paperback, not a pocket-size mass market paperback. It is 412 pages versus 256+ (depending on the edition). It looks better, feels better, reads better than any other version. It is fast becoming the "version of choice" among Napoleon Hill devotees and other students of success and high achievement.
Thank you for your time and attention.

Sean, thanks for this post.  Mr. Cornwell's comment was helpful too.  I have an old TGR, it's yellow and dogeared and probably older than me but I refuse to part with it.  I may just pick up both of these.

Thanks Maggie.

I know exactly how you feel. My copy of Laws of Success has so many post-its, and dogears, and notes, and I think that's the way it's meant to be. How many books are there that you keep going back to again and again? You hang on to it, there's a history there.

All the Best,

I've had this book for years but I've never read it. It sounds like I'm missing out.  Okay, so I have a new goal for this month to read this book!!

I have read Think and Grow rich. I'll take a look at the Laws of Success. Og Mandino also has some wonderful books that are inspiring and educational.
