Originally produced by Hill in 1928 as an eight-book series, The Law of Success is now available to contemporary readers in a single edition, redesigned and reset for ease of reading.The Law of Success is the golden key to Hill's thought--his complete and unabridged mind-power method for achieving your goals. After interviewing dozens of industrialists, diplomats, thought leaders, and successful people from all walks of life, the young Hill distilled what he learned into these fifteen core lessons, organized with an introductory chapter, 'The Master Mind,' that serves as a primer to Hill's overall philosophy.As Hill saw it, these lessons work as a "mind stimulant" that "will cause the student to organize and direct to a DEFINITE end the forces of his or her mind, thus harnessing the stupendous power which most people waste."While future classics of Napoleon Hill would inspire millions of readers, there is no substitute for The Law of Success for everyone who wants to grasp the full range of Hill's ideas and tap their transformative power....

    This or some form of this book should be a part of every child's curriculum, beginning at least freshman year in high school. Why? As an educator with over ten years experience (K-12 two years, college / university eight years) I can tell you that if a student comes to class with all the talent in the world WITHOUT an understanding (a very specific understanding) of his / her definite purpose (Hill calls it "chief aim"), self-confidence, a habit of saving, imagination, self-control, accurate thought, tolerance, etc. then that child will fail. And most already do.According to Hill, roughly 95% of the people in this country--and probably the world--fail. Why? Most have no idea why they are on a particular path or to what specific end. Why is this important? Because those who do what they know they were put here to do not only will have a greater propensity to enjoy life, emit joy, spread joy, but will help lift those around them in the hundreds, thousands, millions. All the uber successful I know--millionaires, billionaires--have 85 to 95% of what Hill speaks to. Something else to keep in mind. A well-known multi-millionaire marketer / motivational guru, Dan Kennedy, states that even if a person is talented, creative, smart, hard working, little of that matters if one desires to achieve. Achieving here means going further than just being an employee--taking on one's own dreams and making them reality flying solo without a net. Kennedy states that few have what it takes to gut it out.To succeed at the highest level where the greatest rewards and satisfaction reside, takes great courage and much of the training Hill offers in his lessons. But also keep in mind that this book is not just for high achievers, it's for everyone, as Hill states. But why is this book important? Needed? Necessary? Essential?Consider the following. Within 10 years of graduation, 70% of college grads will be working in a field unrelated to their major. There are variables here, but the main reason for this stat is lack of goal setting or understanding why a major is chosen, what job that major can get the student, and what the job actually entails. Student after student after student after student goes into a particular major because it's what they think they should do based on what parents have said, peers, what they've read, etc. Taking hearsay as hard evidence, having little to no idea whatsoever whether they are mentally or emotionally prepared for what they'll encounter day after day, month after month, year after year in their "chosen" field. I have a lawyer friend who after 13 years of study--he began without a family, now he has a wife and three kids--told me that he NEVER WANTED A JOB WITH LOTS OF PAPER WORK. He told me a few months ago, "That's all I do."I have another friend who spent 6 years going to chiropractic school garnering over $100,000 in debt, moved to Colorado to start a practice (with NO EXPERIENCE and a belief that alternative medicine would go over better in Colorado than Los Angeles) and can't get work. He's piling up the debt with no income, a wife and three children. After 6 years and 6 figures of debt, he's thinking of giving it all up and doing something else. I have another friend who began a commercial real estate business who was living high on the hog spending, spending, spending. $2000 for a Lakers game. $10,000 for a resort vacation. $100,000 for a trip to Colombia. His business is failing and he has little money saved "for a rainy day." He's lost his office, all his employees, and because he's neglected her, soon, his wife. This is sloppy, unprepared, unimaginative, unplanned, undisciplined thinking, acting, being. All that Hill talks AGAINST. . . and more. Let's look at why most college students will fail. Guaranteed!Most choose a major because of a desire to "get respect," for the cash (of course), parent's advice, the world says so. Believe me, I know. I've heard hundreds of students mimic what they've been told or believe is true based on incomplete or faulty thinking. There is just WAAAAAAAY too much bad or sloppy thinking going on in the world and it's the main reason people run into financial, relationship, and career trouble . . . and more. Hill must be read. Of course there are problems with Hill's lessons, some of his thinking is archaic and eccentric but WHO CARES! 90% of what he preaches needs to be studied and studied carefully by people of all ages. Especially the young. Hill's words of wisdom are priceless and can't be ignored. His lessons come from the secrets of success of the uber successful (Ford, Carnegie, etc.), so his methods are proven before he had to prove them, if he ever did. And they fall upon one's reason or intuitive sense of right without a thud. The lessons and the logic behind them go down pretty smooth. Hill is quite the guru. Also, I just love the quotes dispensed throughout the book. Very inspiring, insightful, and deep. They stay with you; they last. Just like Hill's ideas. First published in 1928, why do you think this book is still so popular?But there's one thing I know, and it's that this book should be taught to our children in high school. Learning HOW to be successful, what type of things can trip them up IS ESSENTIAL FOR THEM AND EVERYONE.I'm amazed that this stuff (like relationships and what type of responsibility / mindset / attitude is required for marriage--the most serious of relationships) is NOT taught in high school, college, anywhere formally . . . EVER! THAT IS SO WRONG. No wonder so many marriages fail, why in 10 years 70% of college grads no longer work in jobs related to their major, why most struggle financially, on and on and on and on. Anyway . . . Get the book. Read it. Make it a part of your life. Now!Outside of that, I really don't have an opionion, nevermind a strong one. ;=)

    Having finished the short "Napoleon Hill's Keys to Success", the medium sized "Think and Grow Rich" and the massive "The Law of Success" all back to back, and having found them all fairly similar, I will discuss them all at once.First of all, "Napoleon Hill's Keys to Success" is not by Napolen Hill at all. It is a fairly short book by modern authors outlining the main principles of success found in Hill's other books, especially "Law of Success" and "Think and Grow Rich". Although renamed and reworded, the principles are the same as in Hill's original books and as such are sound, but "Keys to Success" reads like an abridged version of the aforementioned books and like all abridged books, it suffers from too much condensation and a lack of examples and elaborations. For those, who have read Hill's original books, it serves as a nice refresher but for those who haven't, it may remain too obscure.Secondly, Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" from 1933 is actually a rewrite of sorts of his much larger "Law of Succcess" from 1928. Unfortunately it doesn't follow the same coherent structure as "Law of Success", introduces even more spiritual new age ideas than the former and his train of thought is all over the place. Although I have now read it a total of three times - once a bad translation more than 10 years ago and the second and third times just last month, one being a revised and updated 21st century edition and the other the original unmodified version - I still have a hard time understanding parts of it. As for the differences between the two versions, the revisions of the modern version consisted mainly of removing racial or sexist sounding language and adding modern commentary. I appreciated some of the modern commentary, since many of the people or concepts referred to in Hill's original version from 1933 are no longer familiar to the modern reader. However, I found that the direct tampering with the original text had altered some of the meaning and message of Hill's writing more than I could find justifiable. Overall though I found the added commentary more helpful than I found the tampering of the original text unjustified, so I give the modern version a slight recommendation over the original one.Third comes Hill's "Law of Success", a monster of a book with a total of 1035 pages to it. The principles of success outlined by Hill are all sound and true and the work he seems to have done to amass these principles into one book seems to have been enormous. However, the book didn't really need to be 1035 pages long since much of the supporting framework built around the principles is of questionable value. Let me elaborate.Although the book is filled to the brim with golden nuggets of wisdom, the constant barrage of Hill's personal pseudo-scientific ideas makes it a much harder read than it needs to be. This becomes especially evident in the very first chapter ("The Mastermind"), which by its very obscurity defends the whole book against the risk of being read by the more pragmatic and scientifically minded reader. Some of Hill's ideas and suggestions about what he calls "mind energy" and "mind chemistry" and his constant referring to telepathy and mind vibrations are in fact quite ridiculous. Having read the revised and updated 21st century version of this book, I wonder why none of that nonsense was removed. The multitudes of pseudo-scientific theories, most of which seem to have been conjured up in the mind of Hill himself, were highly speculative at the time of writing (in the 1920s) and are just plain silly today.Interestingly enough, Hill claims that his only truly original contribution to all the laws and principles of success is the principle of that very same mastermind alliance, yet here is exactly where he steers off course the most. Although seemingly starting out as touting the positives of teamwork, Hill then goes downhill by attributing ethereal attributes to it and claiming things like vibrations of the mind moving through the ether from the thoughts of one person to another, telepathic abilities manifesting themselves in a collective mastermind of harmonious unity and similar nonsense.It feels like Hill read a few sensationalist pseudo-scientific articles during his day and then, without even trying to confirm whether any of it was even remotely true, went on a tangent, extending and elaborating on these completely nonsensical theories and writing pages upon pages about them. Especially smitten is Hill with the ideas of "telepathy" and "ether" - he rolls them out every time he gets a chance and whenever he feels like it would give credibility to some of his other conjectures. In reality, "ether" was a speculative theory at the start of the 20th century about the nature of the universe and was considered to be the substance, through which all energy flowed (including radio waves and light). It was disproved and debunked fairly quickly, so the way Hill hangs on to it to "prove" the vailidity of many of his pseudo-scientific theories about how the mind works is highly regrettable.In addition to a lot of quackery about ether and telepathy, we also find examples of the power of auto-suggestion to fend off pneumonia, cancer and even the bubonic plague. Knowing what we know about medicine and biology these days, some of the examples given are just plain silly - like the story of a woman, whose cancer tumour kept disappearing and reappearing depending on whether she was conscious or unconscious and thus whether she "believed" she had cancer or not. The principle of auto-suggestion is sound, but when such examples are used to seemingly illustrate its power, in really they only serve to undermine it.Mixed with his pseudo-scientific ramblings is his ambivalent stance on religion. Although the editors of the revised edition keep commending him for never invoking any religion in his works, Hill's "infinite intelligence" as the creator of all the universe and an entity to pray to, the need to have "faith" and his constant professing of "christian values" is quite indistinguishable from referring to religion as I understand it. He even uses the creationist "blind watchmaker" argument in one of the chapters as proof, that the universe simply had to be created by intelligent design and a creator with a plan. On the other hand, he also invokes evolution and darwinism to back up some of his other theories. I don't really mind, whether the author is a religious creationist or a darwinist and atheist. What I do mind however, is when the author can't make up his mind and keeps switching sides whenever it suits his argument. Quoting both revivalist ministers and atheist humanists, I don't see this as being flexible and open-minded - I see this as the author being confused and not really knowing, what he himself really believes or thinks. It's a shame really, that so many of Hill's universally true principles of success, human psychology and self mastery are drowned out by tedious pseudo-scientific quasi-religious prose, which can make for a very frustrating read at times.Additionally, instead of removing all that nonsense from the 21st century edition of the book, the editors have decided to dress it all up as magnificent foresight on Hill's part by claiming it to mean all kinds of other things instead of what Hill actually wrote. I remain thoroughly unconvinced though and so will any discerning reader.Another puzzling aspect of the book is its constant redundancy. Some examples are not repeated just twice, but three, four or even five times in various chapters (sometimes almost word for word). I can understand, how redundancy can creep in, if you write a book over a number of years, however that same redundancy should get thrown out, if not during the editing stage, then in later editions by the very latest.A matter of taste is the huge scattering of poems throughout the book. I am not a big fan of poetry myself, since my mind tends to wander the moment I stumble upon an artificially re-arranged word order (as so often happens in poetry to achieve a rhyme) and I don't think poems really address the modern reader like they might have a century ago, but I concede that this is a matter of opinion.Even though I hardly touched upon the actual principles of success in this book, those are the ones that actually garner a four star rating from me. In spite of all the surrounding hogwash, the principles themselves are so true, that they outshine everything else. Without Hill's pseudo-scientific ramblings, this would in fact have been a five star book but since the golden nuggets of information are buried among too much "ether" and "mind vibrations", four stars is the best I can award this book or any its derivatives.

    I've been studying Think and grow Rich since 1971 and have always seen reference made by Dr. Hill to the Law of Success, but never sought to find it. Last December it jumped off the shelf at Barnes and Noble in Seattle when I was looking for the Art of War. I devoured the book in about three weeks. It was truly the most transformational experience of my life and was the frosting on the cake for Think and Grow Rich. I really began to connect with the members of my master mind alliance and ultimately lost my wife because she thought I was worshipping money, even though I wasn't earning enough to support myself at the time. She finally just cracked up and left, a victim of Poverty consciousness. I pray for her and hope someday to be able to provide for her. She gave me all she had to give and when that was gone, she left. What a shock to me. Her faith was in the bank, and all this time I had been thinking she was a Christian.. It was Christ himself who said "go and sell all that though hast and come follow me". I am with you Jesus. I didn't know it was going to cost me the one's I love, but I'm so in love with you, for I know that you truly are Lord of the Universe, maker of Heaven and Earth. You are my redeemer. Thank you for taking upon yourself the sins of the world, that we might be forgiven of our sins and come to know you, the only true and living God.

    This is one of the best self-help books I've ever read! I have to admit, the book is quite verbose and boring at times (particularly in the beginning), but if you can get through the 1st quarter of the book, the remainder is well worth it.

    Napoleon Hill was definitely ahead of his time. I learned so much from this. Just like there are indisputable laws of the Universe, there are also indisputable laws of success that any one must learn and accept if they wish to attain any sort of achievement.

    A friend of mine gave me this book "The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons" to read as a gift. We both were looking to take our businesses to greater height. We told each other that we would read this book through its entirety. The book shows how the wealthy create success.Napoleon Hill was born in 1883 and living his life in poverty. In 1908 Hill was hired by Andrew Carnegie. At that time Carnegie was one of the richest men in the world. Hill had studied over 500 of Americas most successful business men. This book was first published in 1928. It took Mr. Hill 20 years to write this book."The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons" discuses everything about what it takes to be successful. During the 20 years of writing, Hill had to study people such as John D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and many others. The book is about 536 pages long. It has a total of 16 lessons. Have you ever read or saw the movie/dvd "The Secret"? It talks about the laws of attraction. Napoleon Hill also talks about it in this book.This is a real powerful book. If you want to be successful in life regarding your business, health, and wealth, I would suggest that you find this book and buy it. It can lead you in the right direction in success.Mr. Hill says that the purpose of the Law of Success course is to enable you to find out how you may become more capable in your chosen field of work. He also says, "To this end you will be analyzed and all of your qualities classified so you may organize them and make the best possible use of them."

    This book is amazing. It is filled with timeless principles. This book is the culmination of Napoleon Hill's more than 20 years of studying and interviewing successful people.This book contains an in-depth look at the habits that are required to bring about success. I really liked that this book acknowledges that material wealth is the primary focus of many of its readers. But it also emphasizes the other aspects of success.Some of my favorite lessons include the lessons on imagination, pleasing personality and The Golden Rule. I liked that this book was really about becoming a better person and realizing that when you are a better you, you will be more successful at everything you do.There is one small negative to the book. (The reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5) There are a few places where he tries to give examples of the principles he is talking about. Some of these examples feel a little bit dated. The principles themselves are timeless, but the examples of application are not. When he got into those, it did feel like the book was just dragging as he went into intricate detail of those particular examples. That being said, I just tried to skim those parts to get to the next gem of wisdom.This book is the extended philosophy on which Think and Grow Rich is based. It contains all of the principles taught in Think and Grow Rich as well as much more. For that reason, my suggestion is to study Think and Grow Rich first and then when you feel you are ready for more, study this book. Both books are incredible and life changing.

    This book was written over 80 years ago, but still holds up well. I will issue a warning that much of the content is considered New Age, even by todays standards. I imagine back in the 1920s they must have thought that Napoleon Hill was a lunatic. The book is far superior to its sequel, Think and Grow Rich. The book is divided into 15 easy to digest lessons. Hill tends to meander within the lessons (e.g. he sometimes does not get to the actual topic of each lesson until about half-way through) and sometimes leaves you wondering why he titled the lessons the way he did, but the material is very useful. The lessons on Self-Control and Doing More Than What You Are Paid For are worth the price of the book. Recommended for anyone that wants to put together a personal plan for success.

    This book is about 600 pages. It is 15 laws of success while I have seen a photocopy version of the original printing at that has 16 laws. It seems that the introduction chapter in my version is actually the 1st law on forming a mastermind group. I have completed the book and this is a foundation book for everyone! This is a book you could study for quite some time. Some of the stories are a little dated especially when he talks about salaries but other than that it is loaded with great quotes, some poetry and many short stories about successful people.

    I marvel at the simplicity of some of the principles and cringe a bit at the stretching in my character required to deliver on some of the other principles. Hill presents an arsenal of success tools that are pretty all-encompassing. These are methods by which one can govern her mind, mind, mood and attitudes. She who has the guts to cultivate all 17 principles will surely win the prize.

    Teaching, for the First Time in the History of the World, the True Philosophy upon which all Personal Success is Built.“You Can Do It if You BELIEVE You Can!”THIS is a course on the fundamentals of Success.Success is very largely a matter of adjusting one’s self to the ever-varying and changing environments of life, in a SPIRIT of harmony and poise. Napoleon Hill was born in 1883 in a one-room cabin on the Pound River in Wise County, Virginia. From these humble roots he rose to distinction as the author of the motivational classics The Laws of Success and Think and Grow Rich. Hill passed away in November 1970 after a long and successful career writing, teaching, and lecturing about the principles of success. His lifework continues under the direction of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, whose goal and mission is to assist people throughout the world to reach their highest level of personal achievement and self-fulfillment.

    I found this title highly informative and motivating. The lessons and supportive arguments constantly remind you of the author's primary message.The presentation is easy to follow. Overall, it is a great book. The major challenge with this title is the level of repetition you may observe. Probably for emphasis, major points are repeated time and again. This may cause you to quickly flip through some of the pages. The repetitions also had the effect of making the points communicated rather diffuse.These drawbacks however are unlikely to prevent assimilation of the valuable truths proffered in this book.Repositioned: The Journey

    This is the fundamental text book for those who want to explore more about the world of self-help. Esp for those who are interested in the Law of attraction. Buku ini adalah thesis atau kajian terhadap orang yang sudah berjaya pada zaman itu; Henry Ford, Dale Carnegie, Alexander Graham Bell. Kebanyakan buku self-help moden mengambil salah satu chapter dari buku ini dan dikembangkan menjadi sebuah tajuk lain. Buku ini agak susah didapati di pasaran memandangkan ketebalannya yang mencecah 1k pages. Mudahnya, baca buku ini then you'll understand the principle of self-help used by other authors.

    Alright, there’s greatness hidden in this gem if you can survive a dance with 19th century social norms and mores of imperialism, misogyny, racism, and even metaphysics. I like to think of the author as my favorite, but very weird, and probably crazy, Aged Uncle Hill who is always giving me great pieces of advice. Unfortunately, those jewels are always attached to a 45 minute lecture on the truly “out there.” One moment I can believe in the viability of a Positive Law of Effect or Attraction, but then he says something so strange I catch myself making a face of incredulity. I still want you to read this, and look for how you can make these Laws of Success work. I don’t discredit the principle-based living Hill is advocating. I just worry that too much influence may be attributed to thought effect versus consciously willed action at times. In other words, if you take the time to read this Course on Success you will in essence be looking back in time on how the “greatest generation” not only viewed success but how this work defines the self-help genre for future progeny.

    It is for sure one of the books that people should read, despite the ambition this person has. Some ideas can sure have a big impact in the human relations and result in the construction of a better world. Although, I highly agree with the author that some concepts when misunderstood could have terrible impact in the life of the man who applies this in a wrong way.For me it was also funny reading scientific concepts of the time when it was written.I am not a big fan of self help books and the reading was quite slow but this reading was really enlightening for me. I have already indicated it to all my friends.

    I wanted to like these books, but had a really hard time getting there. It is two volumes. I just finished the first volume. I am now starting on the second volume. So, my review may change after finishing the second volume, but I doubt it. It is very secular, and some of the sessions, like the law of attraction, is really a lot of mumbo-jumbo to me. Now, if you want to say: Birds of a feather, stay together. That I understand. But not the universe wants me to be happy and if I think hard enough about it, then others will be attracted to me. Nah! That makes no sense to me.

    I agree with other reviewers who say this should be read in some form in High School. As a so-called Gen-X kid, I see tremendous value to my generation, millennials, and whatever we end up calling the current generation of high schoolers. Of course some of the concepts and theories are dated, but the overall messaging of what helps a person succeed in their life endeavor, whatever that may be, is sound.

    "Read in moderation" would be my tip for this book. Much as it was written long ago, many previously absolute truths are no longer applied to the twenty-first century. In addition, the author often demonstrates an arrogant attitude, which is another position not applied to the present day. I believe that in an updated version, the book could contain 100 pages (instead 1035), summarizing the 16 lessons for success.
