As Executive Director of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, I receive many requests from people wanting the original 1937 copy of Think and Grow Rich. To satisfy those of you who desire to have a 1937 unedited copy, we have reproduced Napoleon Hill’s personal copy of the first edition, printed in March of 1937. The book has the notation, “not to be loaned,” and signed: Annie Lou Hill (the wife of Dr. Hill). This personal copy of Dr. Hill’s was given to me by Dr. Charles W. Johnson, Chairman of the Napoleon Hill Foundation and a nephew of Napoleon Hill. It was Napoleon Hill who sent Dr. Johnson to medical school, and today he is a practicing cardiologist. Charlie refers to Napoleon Hill as “Uncle Nap” and will often makes the statement, “Uncle Nap would be proud of the Foundation today.” The original 1937 manuscript was written and edited with the assistance of Napoleon’s wife. In later years, the existing document was again edited by Dr. Hill. For example, the Foundation owns a 1958 edition that Hill edited personally. This did not lessen the book’s value in Hill’s judgment. Hill made the editing remarks in his own handwriting and the resulting 1960 edited edition has sold over 100 million copies making it the most read self-help book of all time. Today there are many so called authors who publish Think and Grow Rich and some even add their name alongside Dr. Hill’s. I believe that these “authors” should be able to write something themselves instead of merely copying the work of Napoleon Hill. Who do they think they are kidding? Dr. Hill’s works are highly recognizable and have had long lasting influence worldwide. In fact, Think and Grow Rich sells more copies today than before Dr. Hill died in 1970. Now you can purchase the original Foundation authorized 1937 unedited copy of Think and Grow Rich by visiting the Napoleon Hill Foundation’s website, www.naphill.org. You will be supporting the nonprofit Napoleon Hill Foundation if you do this. For your convenience it is also available as an e-book. The entire philosophy of Napoleon Hill is based on the Golden Rule. The Foundation deeply appreciates the support of those of you who only purchase Napoleon Hill authorized books. You can identify these materials by the Foundation Logo and by looking inside for Napoleon Hill copyright.

Synopsis: Mr. Hill takes us through the process of thinking like a champ and tells us it will work. My Thoughts: I suspect this book would be good for someone who actually wants to accomplish a large goal, or someone focused on attaining a large amount of money. For me, I've accomplished the lar...
Always a great reread or re-read. A good straight forward kick in the pants to put the head on straight and move forward. I have bought copies for my children to keep and review over their lives
