Hill, Napoleon: Think and Grow Rich, v1, 16 Sept 2007.

Done in response to a request.

The html came from sacred-texts.com, whose commentator says:

This is one of the best-selling self-help books of all time. Written during the Great Depression, against a backdrop of millions of people out of work and a looming world war, Napoleon Hill's magnum opus held out hope that life could get better. While not considered part of the New Thought movement, Hill drew on many of their concepts and techniques. He prefigured the 'Prosperity Consciousness' of present-day New Age thinkers. And a host of motivational writers and speakers have followed in his footsteps.
A good part of Hill's book is simply the gospel of 20th century American Capitalism: work hard, have a firm handshake, get ahead by doing quality work, treat your customers with respect, anybody can become rich and/or powerful if they overcome their personal weaknesses. Some may find the core 'secret' of this book elusive; Hill never gives us a succinct formula to acquiring wealth, although he hints that it exists. However, the title of the book is 'Think and Grow Rich,' not 'Get Rich Quick': Hill insists that we take a very detailed personal inventory, and grow spiritually, in order to draw wealth our way. This involves a developing a high level of self-discipline and obeying the Delphic injunction to 'Know Thyself'. He also incorporates a lot of good, practical business advice: find new opportunities created by technological innovations, make a written plan and keep to it, don't be afraid to fail repeatedly. The secret is here, it is just simply the sum of parts rather than an explicit roadmap.
Towards the end of the book he steps off a precipice and ventures into some very esoteric territory. He discusses harnessing Kundalini energy, manifesting psychic powers such as telepathy, tapping into higher consciousness, and getting in touch with the great minds of history, although, again, he is not too specific about how to accomplish these feats.
Think and Grow Rich is one of those books which makes a lasting impression. No matter what you may think of Hill's philosophy and his folksy writing style, you are bound to come away from this book feeling energized, more optimistic about life, and (possibly) a bit richer for the experience. --J.

Great minds think alike
I just did my own version on the same day! 9/16/07!

Since it is pretty much the same as the version posted here, I am not going
to post it. My version doesn't have the last section of yours: This standing army is at your service.

However, I want to point out an error in Chapter 15. There is a note regarding the six basic fears: at the bottom of most of one's worries. In my version it is after the first three fears, not just the first one. It is formated like this:

The fear of POVERTY } at the bottom of
The fear of CRITICISM } most of one's
The fear of ILL HEALTH } worries

Improved version

OK. I like this version better than the one I did because it keeps all Italic style, which is important to reading such a book.

I have attached an improved version, with proper open and closing quotation marks, etc. and also corrected the error I mentioned in my previous post.

I did it by converting to lrs, editing and converting back.

I have unapproved your attachment because it is not right to post the same book in a thread started by someone else. If you want to post your copy, do so in another thread.

Well, this is a modified version based on the one posted on this thread. I think it is appropriate to post it here. If you unapproved it, so be it.

If you can get Patricia to allow it, I'll reapprove it. After all, it is her thread.

Since Mdhuang already has a version of this book uploaded (--haven't we all?) he might be best putting his new version there.

I wouldn't mind posting it somewhere else. I just don't want to take credit because it was not created by me originally. Anyway, case closed.
