Let's get something straight - TaGR is not a magic book. I've seen so many reviews with "don't alter the original, don't change it, don't add new content" that I was afraid of buying any other version. I have already read the book in paperback so this came as the next natural choice.
TaGR (this version) is good but it's not perfect. The naration sometimes it's not very exciting and it can get lost in the background. The story focuses on the TaGR methodology which is fine but it's sometimes alienating to hear examples from 75 years ago. The lenght is way too big especially since the principles are not so many.
So I enjoyed this purchase. However, I enjoy a lot more my copy of the 21st century edition. It's far better edited, the sound quality seems better (it's totally subjective) and it's far more relatable than to the classic.
Therefore, if you want TaGR on steroids, look for the latest version. It's far longer but it's worth it.

This is somewhat of a time capsule, it's a self help book written in the aftermath of the great depression. There are some nuggets that are detailed and I found some of the historical perspectives to be interesting, but overall it really didn't work, particularly as an audio book. There were exhaustive lists throughout the book - for example the 28 primary reasons people don't succeed, which made following the book a challenge. It is obviously a classic to have lasted this long, it just didn't work for me.

This book is an absolutely fantastic look into the what people now call the ?millionaire mindset?. The book is the combination of 20 years of studying some of the greatest inventors, investors and Business men of the time and in fact the century, people like Henry Ford, Alexander Bell, Thomas Edison, and Andrew Carnegie. It was actually Andrew Carnegie who encouraged Hill to write the book and study the great minds of their time.
The book goes through topics such as Imagination and discusses how once a person can imagine something on ones mind then it is possible, Desire, in which he tells of the deaf child who finally heard and how if a person desires something badly enough he can and will achieve it, auto-suggestion and how having positive thinking can affect outcome, procrastination, imagination, the brain itself and fear. The most interesting section, however, I believe is on his ideas of sex transmutation; turning sex drive into a positive force instead of a destruction one. For the 1930?s his ideas were certainly revolutionary and for the most part most of them still hold. Some of the content is a little dated but in general Hill was on the money!
In essence this book is what Richard Parkes Cordock tried to do with the ?millionaire MBA Business Mentoring Program? and his inspiration for the millionaire upgrade in which Hill?s book is constantly referenced.
I honestly believe that this book should be compulsory for anyone studying business in either High School or University. It for me is one of the best books of in the area of business motivation.
The narration at times can be a little flat but it certainly gets the main points across. If you were looking for a book with a little bit more humour and life then Brian Tracey's "Success Mastery Academy" is certainly worth a look and similar topics are discussed.

As ever Napoleon Hill's ability to breakdown complex leadership principles is second to none. That said, much of the content comes from his earlier book "The Law of Success". In my opinion it is that earlier book that is the 5 star knock out punch. So in closing this book is certainly outstanding value - rich in content and practical guidance, but "The Law of Success" carries that bit more. The challenge is that there are one or two themes covered in greater detail in this book. If advising I would probably suggest listening to this book first, then the "Law of Success" afterwards to avoid any anti-climax. As the earlier book is simply out of this world brilliant.

I have never written a review in my life and I definitely owe this book one...Napoleon Hill is true pioneer in self development. I like the honesty, the facts, and most of all the power of positive thinking. If anyone reading this wants joy in their life, please open the pages. This isn't just about getting rich in money, it's about getting rich in life!

Absolute classic and a must read and apply on monthly basis. Seen outstanding results after applying these concepts and ideas religiously for few months.
