'Suceess through a positive mental attitude' is not the kind of book where you find lot of inspirational quotes(which may or may not be true)to inspire you for a flash.It's the kind of book which raises your butt off to work,and lets you work with positve attitude until you secceed.YES,it's completely truth.

By the man that needs no introduction. One of his timeless, priceless books.
That is all.

“Andrew Carnegie had an obsession: anything in life that was worth having was worth working for.”

“Results are what count.”

“Listen to this book as if we the authors were your personal friends, and were speaking to you, and you alone.”

Recommends it for: People who want to improve themselves
What do you do when you get a great idea: do you act on it immediately or do you find all the reason why your idea is doomed?

This book builds on Napoleon Hill's two earlier works, "Think & Grow Rich" and its predecessor "The 17 Laws of Success", and focuses on how developing a positive mental attitude combined with the other principles will bring you closer to success. The coauthor of this book, W Clement Stone, was one of Jack Canfield's mentors (of "Chicken Soup For the Soul" fame).

One of the last (if not the last) books that Napoleon Hill wrote and more modern than some of his other writing. Includes very powerful list of 17 Rules of success with tons of examples on how they are applied. Also includes epic bibliography of other personal development and success books. Must read for anyone who is into self actualization, being their best and/or helping others.

I enjoyed this book so much that, as I was the director of an after school community tutoring and arts performance program, I bought copies and gave one to each of the volunteers, students and family members that answered yes when I asked if they would accept it.

Actitud Mental Positiva = AMP de Napoleon Hill es un excelente libro para todos aquellos lectores que quieren descubrir su potencial, encontrar principios prácticos muy recomendado para mantener en la biblioteca personal.
A continuación mi conclusión personal sobre este libro.
Desde un inicio el autor nos invita a pregundarnos y reconocer quién es la persona más importante del mundo? Sí, preguntate quién es la persona del mundo, y encontraras en tu respuesta la importancia de tener un balance pos
Very dated but still full of plenty of useful content.

full of anecdotes, very little substance. this book is a really, really, really long pep talk about never giving up. but, I was under the impression that this book would help change the way one thinks to be more positive. reading stories about other's success isn't really changing how or the way I think.

The concept is so simple that it's almost hard to understand. Why isn't everyone successful? This books lays it out pretty simply with great examples. I am already going through this book again and plan to do so yearly to keep the message going.
This book has enlightened my thoughts about the road, challenges, spirituality, and diligence it takes to become successful. There are a few reassuring principals and beliefs that are found in this book. I highly recommend this one to any persons pursuing a career. It works! Give it a shot. :)

I am a huge believer in the power of our mind and this book illustrates the amazing things we can achieve when we combine a positive mental attitude with the right strategies. The strategies are taught through many inspirational stories. Highly recommended for everyone!
I love the message this book brings. The title says it all.

it would have been a great book if the ideas were summarised in 150-200 pages. Hills being Hills repeated every idea atleast 20 times.

I originally read this book when it first came out in the 60's and just reread it about after over 50 years. I probably would have rated the book 5 stars in the 60's, but since some of the material is dated, I could only give it a four star rating now. However, it is still a great motivational self help book. The book list these 17 success principles: Positive Mental Attitude, Definiteness of purpose, Going the extra mile, Accurate thinking, Self-discipline, The Master Mind, Applied faith, a ple ...more

I do not remember where I heard about this book, but when I did, it certainly made me want to listen through this right away, because of the title and the description was something I felt I was craving for.

Book certainly delivered on my high expectations, not only vocalizing the title so well, but other content as well. Here are some highlights from my notes:
+ Motivation is like fire, keep adding to it or it will go out.
+ Those who believe they can, they can!

The preface quotes Soren Kierkegaard "It is the sign of a good book when the book reads you." I felt this was true in my case as well. It is a great motivator into action in what might be considered to change the world, starting with one's self. I enjoyed how the book gives examples how many people have applied the concepts in the book and achieved success. I did have a negative about the book. For my own personal taste, I felt some principles were reliant on a religious aspect instead of an ind ...more

My favorite book of all time. W. Clement Stone was brilliant in getting Napoleon Hill to come out of retirement to do this book with him. I enjoyed it more than I did "Think and Grow Rich". I think I liked it more because the verbatim used is a little more up to date and the terms seem to be more relevant to today. This type of success is attainable to anyone. It all starts with a positive attitude. You will not have any sort of success with a negative attitude. It also doesn't come with only ha ...more

A lot of the stories seemed too simple/easy and it was hard to relate to them; most of the stories were business/sales related and that is probably why the difficulty in connecting for myself. Besides that, I liked all of the ideas expressed and thought they can be useful for me. But they need several more readings for me to become an owner of them and use them in my life. When I do, maybe the rating will change.

"Una buena idea seguida de la acción puede transformar el fracaso en éxito" La actitud que tomamos ante la vida sin duda marca nuestro destino, es valido fracasar pero es aun mas necesario seguir intentando; que sea nuestra determinación la que dirija nuestro rumbo. Libro matizado de muchas enseñanzas que vale la pena anotar y sobre todo poner en marcha, no es fácil pero la vida en si no es sencilla si quieres grandes cosas.

An old time classic. In it, I found the principal of the law of attraction, NLP (the use of conscious and subconscious mind) and lots of real life example of how these principals are applied in the daily life.

Examples are old and vintage, but the principals taught in this book is definitely priceless and applicable in our daily life.

I would recommend to read this book before Think And Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. If you read it after, it’s not so interesting because it’s a bit more generalist and examples are not so relevant. I had the impression that The book was written only by Clement Stone and maybe only reviewedby Hill
