Napoleon Hill...classics in learning on how to deal with people in business. They can get pretty intense and really must be read with a grain of salt at times to as to not go off the deep end. However, you'll find yourself referencing back to these books over and over again. They make a real impression that won't leave you easily, no matter which direction life takes you.

Recommended reading for any entrepreneur or sales person.

This was a great supplement to refresh the principles of Think and Grow Rich, with an added section on salesmanship. However, I do feel some of the commentary was unnecessary and MANY things were repeated, although it does work in further accentuating the main ideas in the subconscious mind.

Despite some overlap with his book Think and Grow Rich, this is still a good inspirational read for helping to find fulfillment in life.

While not quite as good as the original Think and Grow Rich title, I found this book to still be a stimulating read. Succeed and grow rich covers the many important habits for success, but focuses more on the practical application of the material by exploring the stories of those who have implemented these habits into their life and careers. I agree with other reviews that there is some repetition, but I think it serves to enforce the core values of the text.

This book is comprised of maybe 5% actual practical business advice and 95% wishy-washy, pseudo-scientific claims about the nature of the mind. By far the most egregious is the support of the "theory" of an ether that serves as a medium for the conveyance of thoughts from one brain to another. The author claims that there is "compelling evidence" (never cited or referenced, of course) that "thought vibrations" hang around this ether perpetually, and that they are the source of those unexplained ...more

This book is not about manipulating people, it's about helping others get what they want so that you can attain the things you want: a concept I can believe in. This book is not just about how to sell yourself to the mind of others, it's about how to form thinking habits that draw in others because of a positive mental attitude and mindset to do more than what is required of you. I have studied this book extensively and I plan to return to it regularly. I highly recommend this book for the open- ...more
