A short and precise book to develop ourselves to be successful. One of the lesson that I’m particularly fond of is about having a clear goal and vision of what we want to become.

There are times that I feel a bit lost and demotivated. What I would do is I would stop and visualise my future goals, and it help me to move on and get back on my track.

A great book and you can finish it easily 😊

this book was pretty much the same with the past book that i had read, "Think and Grow Rich" and "How to Be Rich" but a little more nuggets can be found here. ...more

Not a book I got to go highlighter crazy on. That's simply because the chapters were small and the messages were pretty clear. Every time I grabbed one, I realized I would be highlighting whole pages or paragraphs if I did.

A book you can read over the course of a couple lunch breaks and walk away with some valuable insights to carry on into your daily life. It's also telling that the author was born in 1883 and what he wrote is still pertinent. It goes to show that not much has changed in the w

Great format that is easy to read and reference, with practical advice on how to achieve success in any area of your life.
My favorite part of the book is the example of Napoleons step mother. He attributes his success to her attitude and sacrifices towards formal education.
I have heard so much about Napoleon Hill, it was inspiring to learn that his mother was at the root of his success.
Success affects my friends and family in a very real way. Beautiful.

След като съм запозната с другите му две книги - "Мисли и забогатявай" и "Интервю с дявола" - тази му книга ми се струва леко претупана. Първата глава е доста обширна и макар да предупреждава, че следващите няма да са такива, все пак четейки я, човек остава с впечатлението, че я е писал с пистолет опрян в главата. Така си го представям аз, поне. Иначе относно изразните средства, таланта и начина на изразяване, няма равен! ...more

تكلم فيها عن مبادئ السبعة عشر لقانون النجاح
الكتاب ممتع جدا واستفدته منه خصوصا بأنه اعطي كل مبدئ حقه بالشرح
وايضا الكاتب ذُكر فيه بعض رجال الأعمال المشهورين وكيف انهم نجحو عن طريق تركيزهم بهدف واحد
الدرس الرابع عشر مبدئ الإستفادة من الفشل اكثر مبدئ اعجبني

Great book. 17 laws of success. Common reasons for failure. Harmony. Goodwill and purpose.

I heard this book on Audible. It was hard to get through.

The book wasn't bad. I like the ideas/laws, but not the delivery. I plan on listening/reading more of Hill's books with the hopes of getting a better delivery. I might even revisit this book in physical form in the future.

Hill has some very useful advice, but I didn't like the spiritual tone of the book.

He mentions how there is an unseen mental energy all around us that science hasn't discovered yet. He's not a scientist and spends too mu

This book is one big yes to success. Sure, okay, you could ask for more and more perfect and get it. But, if it were more perfect - there would be no room to think for yourself or create for yourself. Napoleon Hill and the editors give you that room. I love this version. Seeming imperfections and all.

Muito bom e traz a síntese do pensamento estruturado para o sucesso de Napoleon Hill.

Another great book by Napeleon Hill.

Similar but different enough to retain interest.

Felt like this book was written later and had some refinements of the lessons.

To be successful in any sort of endeavor, you must have a definite goal. You must have definite plans for attaining this goal. Nothing is ever accomplished that is worthwhile without a definite plan of procedure that is systematically and continuously followed out day by day. ~ Napoleon Hill, The Magic Ladder to Success

If you study the very wealthy, as I have you, will notice a pattern of what they read and almost every wealthy person that I have studied has mentioned the influence that Napoleo
الكتاب لو اول مرة تقراه و اول مرة تقرا ل نابليون هيل اصلا هتديه 3 من 5 و مش بعيد كمان لو انت عاطفى اوى او بنت هاتديه 4 من 5
الكتاب و لانى مش اول مرة اقرا ل نابليون هيل ف هاديه 2 بس من 5
لا لشىء الا انى قريت اغلب كتب نابليون هيل و حسيت ان الكتاب لا يضيف جديد عما هو موجود بالفعل فى كل كتب نابليون هيل
الرجل بس عاوز يبيع اكتر نفس المادة بتاعته ف بيحطها ف اغلفة و عناوين مختلفة كل مرة ..فقط

يمكن مقراش تانى ل نابليون هيل لفترة ما ...الكتب كتير جدا و المؤلفين برضه ..لكن الوقت اللى هو المادة الخام للحياة

Great book! A very concise step-by-step pathway up the ladder--from unorganized though to organized thought. And much shorter, thank goodness, then the Law of Success. Intis h book, Hill takes you up rung by rung: rung- 1. definitive aim of purpose, 2. self-confidence, 3. initiative, 4. imagination, 5. action, 6. enthusiasm, 7. self-control,8. the habit of performing more work and better work, ...16. the GOLDEN Rule.
Shivani Gupta
The treasure of knowledge described in this book.
It can change your life if you are really serious about it.
The philosophy of life very clearly defined in these 17 principles and how one can acquire riches if one really desires keenly and put the actions in place using his intellect.
Worth reading and applying in life many times.
Oct 27, 2015 rated it it was ok
Pseudo results of pseudo research of Hill's. His works are so generic, factless and extremely overrated. Ideas contradict to each other. Placebo for weakened souls. Some ideas of his are quite good and, to be honest, a matter of comon sense, although not common practice. ...more

His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich (1937), is one of the best-selling books of all time (at the time of Hill's death in 1970, Think and Grow Rich had sold 20 m ...more
