Publisher's Summary

Original 1937 edition. You are currently reading one of the most influential books in the world. Within the pages of this book, you will find the tools, methods, and skills necessary to become a wealthy man. You will learn how to successfully influence the people and situations around you. You will learn about what helps a person propel his life forward, achieve happiness, and increase wealth while others can't seem to even get out of the starting block. What is it that equips some with the strength and energy for the fight while others are left listless? How is it that some can spot potential amidst a tangle of problems and work towards their dreams without stumbling under the cruel winds of fate, while others struggle desperately, making mistake after mistake, without encountering any form of success? Years ago, Napoleon Hill glimpsed the mysterious sparkling gem of success while speaking to Andrew Carnegie, one of the richest men on the planet. Carnegie advised Hill to examine how other successful people obtained wealth and to develop a formula for success that could be an example the world over. This book reveals the Secret of Success and an action plan for achieving it. Since the original 1937 edition, the book has been reprinted 42 times in the United States, selling out immediately upon publication. The book describes the road to sure success: overcoming all obstacles and achieving one's dreams with the sureness of a movie plot propelling the viewer towards the end along the eternal river of time. The book will shake and transform your life with its motivating energy. As you read it, you will understand how self-confident people amass wealth and achieve happiness. Most importantly, you will become such a success story. Napoleon Hill was born in a small cabin in the mountains of Virginia. As a young man, he worked as a newspaper reporter in order to afford his studies at Georgetown University. During WWI, he worked as a public relations expert for President Woodrow Wilson's administration. In 1933, Jennings Randolph, a senator from West Virginia, introduced him to Theodore Roosevelt. Hill again found himself in the role of presidential advisor. After establishing the Napoleon Hill Association in 1952, he actively promoted the philosophy of personal success. He also headed the Napoleon Hill Foundation, a public organization aimed at educating people in the "science of success".

Voiceover is bad. You get what you pay for.

The book is great, but the voiceover is not.

This is to help educate the voiceover actor and help anyone considering buying this version. It's not meant to be mean.

One reason I write that the voiceover is bad, is he doesn't know how to pronounce some common words. It's not that they're tough or even long word. For instance, he doesn't know how to pronounce the word "ether." As in the chemical substance. Most on-line or app dictionaries could easily help rectify that.

Here's another annoying thing the voiceover does. Rather than use the edit button, and fix his mistakes, he repeats himself (often multiple times to get it right). I've listened from the beginning through Chapter 2 so far. The number of instances when he's done that has been at least 4-5 times.

And finally, often times he doesn't contextualize what he's reading. The author of the book wrote passages that were intended to have emphasis on certain words. When you don't do that, it leaves the story lacking the necessary substance.

If the voiceover would learn to pronounce words, contextualize what he's reading, and use the edit button to remove his mistakes, it would've been much better.

This is an example of - you get what you pay for.

This dude is soulless and not very articulate but the book is life changing

I had a hard time understanding the reader and his emphasis of words is wacky. Annoying

Narrator does not pronounce the English words correctly

Could have been a great story but due to the numerous mispronunciations of words in this text, it is distracting enough to put it away forever. I persevered through this excruciating performance in order to get the important details of the book but now contemplating downloading another version and starting all over. The version also seemed as if it wasn’t edited: there are several instances where the narrator says a line incorrectly and then repeats it correctly. Do not download this version if you are considering spending 8+ hours listening to this great book by Napoleon Hill.

Miss this one

While this recording may be a direct reading of the original, it is read by a non-native English speaker and so suffers from incorrect emphasis and confusing pronunciation. It is also recorded badly with many mistakes and restarts left in. MISS THIS ONE. There are others to choose from.

Narration is not good

Narratation is not good. Couldn't listen. The Russ Williams narration is a better one .
