Think and Grow Rich is a motivational personal development and self-help book written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by a suggestion from Scottish-American businessman Andrew Carnegie. While the title implies that this book deals only with how to get rich, the author explains that the philosophy taught in the book can be used to help people succeed in all lines of work and to do or be almost anything they want.

My bad. I was trying to do too many things at once and thought it was an ebook.

No one ever sought success more desperately than Hill. In an attempt to make a living while writing his book, he floated some 30 ventures--all grandiose, almost all doomed. His most inspired? A scheme called the Intra-Wall Institute, which peddled correspondence courses to the incarcerated. Financial security eluded him until he was well into his 60s. All the while, he lectured on success.

His personal relations fared no better. Associates found him boastful, pompous, sharp-tongued. Yet in his own mind he was never at fault. Always it was "enemies," "jealous associates," or "gangsters" who thwarted him. At 42 and broke, he decided in 1925 that he had finally "hit bottom"--which, in Hillspeak, meant he considered getting an ordinary job.

Had he done so, the news would have been just so much nectar to his first wife, Florence. She married him in 1910, little dreaming he would postpone their honeymoon until 1919 (for financial reasons, he said), pawn her engagement ring, borrow her money, live in fine hotels while she lived with relatives, or sire a son born entirely without ears.

None of these unhappy discoveries can change the fact that millions of readers continue to draw inspiration from Think & Grow Rich. Its appeal is evergreen, and Hill, before he died in 1970 at age 87 (net worth: about $1 million), claimed that by writing it he had made more millionaires than Carnegie. But then, he claimed a lot of things.

He claimed to have been an attorney, and wasn't. He claimed to have helped President Wilson negotiate Germany's surrender in the First World War and to have helped F.D.R. pen fireside chats. The proof? Lacking. Charges of fraud hounded Hill at least twice during his career. In light of these facts, it would be nice to say with complete certainty that he really did interview Ford, Bell, Edison, Rockefeller, Luther Burbank, and all the rest. Where are the notes? Nowhere to be found. They were destroyed, said Hill, in a tragic warehouse fire.
