A Review of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

Think And Grow Rich is one of the most circulated personal development books out on the market. Though the title of this book may seem as though it would be about a “get rich quick” scheme, it’s not. In the book Think and Grow Rich, you will learn that what you believe and how you think will always be your limitation – along with many other lessons. Some of these other lessons include auto-suggestions, imagination, and many more.

I decided to read this book after hearing various people in the business world deem it a must-read. As someone that had also received recommendations for this book from a friend that was into some “get rich quick” schemes, I was a little put-off at first. However, after giving it a try, I quickly found myself receiving tons of valuable information.

The Book: Think and Grow Rich

Think And Grow Rich is a book that will inspire you to follow your desires with a burning passion. Napoleon Hill described several key lessons that any entrepreneur needs to hear if they want to start a great business. It is also a great book for those who are looking to accomplish goals and get to the places in life they feel they are always searching for.

This book is a personal development book that contains so much information in it that will allow the reader to become more confident in themselves all while learning some lessons from Dr. Hill. Some of these lessons include:

  1. Desire
  2. Faith
  3. Auto-Suggestion
  4. Specialized knowledge
  5. Imagination
  6. Organized planning
  7. Decision
  8. Persistence
  9. Masterminds
  10. Sexual attraction
  11. Subconscious mind
  12. The brain
  13. The sixth sense

In the book, Dr. Hill goes into detail about these topics – some of which spill over into several chapters. I would go further into what the book has to offer, but I don’t want to spoil it for you.

I think that Think and Grow Rich is a great book for anybody looking to achieve their goals and get motivated to accomplish their dreams. The best part is that the book won’t take you too long to read. If you read for about an hour a day, you can finish it within the week. There are so many lessons and important bits of information condensed into the book that it felt like I was getting so much out of each and every chapter.

It can be a slightly tougher read if you don’t do well with reading somewhat older books or older-styled writing. However, I truly can’t say too many bad things about this book because of all of the amazing lessons it contains.


  • Quick read.
  • Will motivate you to accomplish your goals.
  • Contains a lot of great information and lessons.


  • May be recommended by a lot of the “get rick quick” types.
  • Is written in an older-style that may be harder to read for some.

Bottom Line

If you are looking to find your purpose in life and accomplish the goals you have set for yourself, I would check out this book. Dr. Napoleon Hill does a great job explaining his key points throughout each chapter. Don’t be put off by those people who recommend this book to you that may seem to be pushing a “get rich quick” scheme – it’s a great read you don’t want to miss out on. Education is the key to success. So, if you want to be successful in what you do, then I would check out this book Think And Grow Rich.
