A timeless classic that can easily substitute for 98% of selfhelp articles. At the same time, it's interesting to see how conceptualization and especially language have changed. Much of what Carnegie talks about would nowadays be framed in a completely different way (e.g. mindfulness).

America is a success system.

Andrew Carnegie 's legacy was not merely his fortune. The greater legacy is disseminating the laws of success to the American people.

The book is a reading of the interview transcript from Napoleon Hill' s interview with Andrew Carnegie.
