Publisher's Summary

The Master Key to Riches, a powerful formula for self-improvement, shows you how to harness the powers of your will and mind so that you can achieve mental happiness, business success, spiritual vitality, and financial superiority.

Millions of fans all over the world are grateful to Dr. Napoleon hill for his now classic Think and Grow Rich. The Master-Key to Riches provides the key to why some people become successful and how you can become one of them. The Master Key is a marvelous audiobook which, once discovered, may be used to:

  • Open the door to sound health
  • Reveal the method by which every disadvantage and disappointment can be turned into advantages of priceless value
  • Open the door to love and romance
  • Renew the spirit of youth
  • Lift humble men to positions of power, fame and fortune

Based on the Andrew Carnegie formula for money making, The Master-Key to Riches describes in step-by-step detail the greatest practical philosophy of success. “Riches” means all riches - “not merely those represented by bank balances and material things,” says Napoleon Hill in the introduction to this master-manual for personal achievement.

This amazing philosophy, culled from the success experiences of many of the world’s most powerful and wealthy men, will show you how to succeed in any path of life, whether it be love, wealth, personal satisfaction, faith, or any number of other goals.

The material woven by Napoleon Hill into The Master-Key to Riches has the endorsement of many men whose names have become synonymous with great achievement in the fields of industry, finance, and statesmanship.

Good natured old darkies

Timeless gyms with a few extremely outdated and short-sighted descriptions of African-Americans. In Chapter 9, the description of the janitor as, “one of those good natured old darkies,” hit me with conflicting emotions. Do I finish this content filled classic, do I emotionally check-out and stop reading/listening, or do I push through and understand that the majority of people in the era were racist pricks, but the knowledge should trump my emotional response to a simple line in an amazing book. I’ll snatch these jewels, while shooting Napoleon a thank you middle finger; maybe we can have a Mastermind about this in Heaven.

Best book for self improvement!!<br />

I read this book twice. I feel it's worth reading more than that. their are alot of great actualization points. reading it more than ones can help to sink in the more complex or new concepts that you read. Great read.

Utter nonsense

Please save your time, money, and credits. Chapters 1 - 3 is focused on telling you what he is going to tell you. In Chapter 4, he begins to tell you how to pray to the various "princes" in preparation for learning what he's going to tell you and to help you receive your riches. What in the world?? It seriously feels like a joke book. I honestly feel dumber for having listened to the very little I did. It is a complete waste of time.

Good but old speak

Old world speak. Some stereotyping but decent message of being responsible and taking control. Quit listening at chapter 9

Utter rubbish!

Completely out of date with today's work life objectives and desires. Terminology such as "coloured" man and "darkie" show how out of touch this book is. Belongs in the 1950's.

One of the worst books I have ever read.

One of the worst books I have ever read in my entire life. I'm in disbelief. I don't know how is this considered one of the greatest books of all times. It is definitely not timeless and I would say era specific but for someone with 0 self development journey and wanting a starting point, still wouldn't recommend this book but also wouldn't be a the worst starting book.

Amazing book!!!

I have been studying all the personal development books in the last 5 years especially all the books from Napoleon Hill and this last book made me realised, the only conclusion I came up with is very simple the main key to open any door is through Faith in God and your persistence in prayer and that it.

Dull and uninspiring

Narration is difficult to listen to, dull and monotone, like an unrelenting infomercial. The message itself is vague and uses single anecdotal examples as proof of its truth. Is written as if by a deluded American, basically America is perfect and everything American is the best apparently. In true American fashion it takes about 100 words to say what 20 or 30 could. The first book on Audible I have struggled to finish.
