This recording is an unabridged and unaltered rendition of the original best-selling blockbuster published in 1937. The book continues to be widely read and studied today. Mr. Hill spent more than 20 years following the careers of, and talking to, many of the most successful men in the country. What he discovered is that they all had certain ideas and attitudes in common. He was inspired in particular by Scottish-American businessman Andrews Carnegie who urged him to research and write a book on what it takes to get rich.
In the book Mr. Hill states that his philosophy is about more than just money. It can be used as a vehicle for success in all lines of work and to obtain whatever a person views as "success". Think and Grow Rich is listed in John C. Maxwell's A Lifetime "Must-Read" books.

Hard to say...never saw the print version.
Really can't pick one...there were many.
No characters - non-fiction. Reader was very good, though.
Wow....many, many insights in this book. Hope I can apply at least a few.
This is a life changing book. Sure, the references are dated but that really doesn't matter. The ideas are what count.
Some good things, but buyer beware!
Napoleon Hill used a lot of Bible references completely out of context and made a lot of heretical statements throughout the book, including: "In truth, no man knows, and no man has ever known, what heaven or hell is like, nor does any man know if either place actually exists." Another quote is, "Baldheaded men, for example, are bald for no other reason than their fear of criticism. Heads become bald because of the tight fitting bands of hats which cut off the circulation from the roots of the hair." He quotes Jesus several times (out of context) and then puts in words the first quote mentioned.Obviously, he had a good idea, but riddled his good work with whatever he allowed his mind to accept without regard for truth. If Jesus is worth quoting, why ignore what He said about Heaven and Hell? Jesus claims that He came down from the Father in Heaven. His work could have been so good, yet he settled for so little.I am sorry that I wasted my time with it. I only listened to this book because it was recommended by Jeff Olson in his book The Slight Edge, which my wife and I absolutely loved!
Paid attention to facts. He had to deliberately ignore facts to make many of his claims.
Jim Killavey did a good job, in my opinion, on the whole book. My bad review of this book is solely based on the content he was reading. I didn't give Jim a 5-star rating because I have heard performances that are much better. However, Jim did do a good job--just not a great one, in my opinion.
The one where he talks to dead people.
If you want a much better delivery of the best aspects of the book, ignore this one and read "The Slight Edge" by Jeff Olson. It's available on audio, also!
