My Mark: 7/10

The book was written a very long time ago - before WWII. A lot of the teachings are relevant but the values have evolved since then and it was, in the tone, very outdated for me. Worth reading, that is for sure but outdated still ... for me.

A "classic" as they say!

 

The Pitch:

Think and Grow Rich is based on Hill's earlier work The Law of Success, said to be the result of more than twenty years of study of many individuals who had amassed personal fortunes.

Hill studied their habits and drew some 16 "laws" to be applied to achieve success. Think and Grow Rich condenses them, providing the reader with 13 principles in the form of a "Philosophy of Achievement". The book asserts that desire, faith, and persistence can propel one to great heights if one can suppress negative thoughts and focus on long-term goals.

The 14 "Principles" listed in the book are:

  1. Thoughts are things
  2. Desire
  3. Faith
  4. Autosuggestion
  5. Specialized Knowledge
  6. Imagination
  7. Organized Planning
  8. Decision
  9. Persistence
  10. Power of the Master Mind
  11. The Mystery of Sex Transmutation
  12. The Subconscious Mind
  13. The Brain
  14. The Sixth Sense
