1937 Unedited Original Edition, We Have Reproduced Napoleon Hill’S Personal Copy
As Executive Director of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, I receive many requests from people wanting the original 1937 copy of Think and Grow Rich. To satisfy those of you who desire to have a 1937 unedited copy, we have reproduced Napoleon Hill’s personal copy of the first edition, printed in March of 1937 here. This personal copy of Dr. Hill’s was given to me by Dr. Charles W. Johnson, Chairman of the Napoleon Hill Foundation and a nephew of Napoleon Hill. It was Napoleon Hill who sent Dr. Johnson to medical school, and today he is a practicing cardiologist. Charlie refers to Napoleon Hill as ‘Uncle Nap’ and often says, ‘Uncle Nap would be proud of the Foundation today.’ The original 1937 manuscript was written and edited with the assistance of Napoleon’s wife.
Today there are many so called authors who publish Think and Grow Rich and some even add their name alongside Dr. Hill’s. I believe that these ‘authors’ should be able to write something themselves instead of merely copying the work of Napoleon Hill. Who do they think they are kidding? Dr. Hill’s works are highly recognizable and have had long lasting influence worldwide. In fact, Think and Grow Rich sells more copies today than before Dr. Hill died in 1970. Now you can purchase this original Foundation authorized 1937 unedited copy of Think and Grow Rich with confidence you are getting the original message as communicated only by Dr. Hill and you will be supporting the nonprofit Napoleon Hill Foundation.
-Don Green, Executive Director of the Napoleon Hill Foundation.
Andrew Carnegie Started It
Napoleon Hill, then a young special investigator for a nationally known business magazine, was sent to interview Andrew Carnegie. During that interview Carnegie slyly dropped a hint of a certain master power he used; a magic law of the human mind—a little known psychological principle—which was amazing in its power.
Carnegie suggested to Hill that upon that principle he could build the philosophy of all personal success—whether it be measured in terms of Money, Power, Position, Prestige, Influence, Accumulation of Wealth.
That part of the interview never went into Hill’s magazine. But it did launch the young author upon over twenty years of research. And today we open to YOU the discovery and methods of using the revolutionary force which Carnegie quietly hinted at.
If you follow this plan persistently you will be almost certain to uncover and appropriate the secret formula by which Andrew Carnegie acquired his huge fortune, as referred to in the author’s introduction.
