Napoleon Hill, author of "Think And Grow Rich" He was an American author and one of the earliest producers of the modern genre of personal-success literature. His most famous and best-selling book Think And Grow Rich sold 30 60 million (data varies) copies since it was published for the first time in 1937.

Despite the title Think And Grow Rich Hills aim was not only to enable people to get rich. His intention was particularly to examine the power of personal beliefs and the role they play in personal success.

Napoleon Hill wanted to identify how achievement of any kind actually occurs and how to derive a formula of success that could be applied by the average person.

INTERRUPTION ALERT Before Think And Grow Rich in 1925 Napoleon Hill published his FIRST book titled:

The Law of Success in Fifteen Lessons. This is the actual book that Andrew Carnegie commissioned him to do in 1908. The original version of The Law of Success was finished by Napoleon Hill in 1925 and released as a limited hand made edition consisting of only 118 copies. Each of these distinctive editions were comprised of 15 booklets and given to many of the most successful businessmen of the day, self-made billionaires, inventors, Presidents, and others who shaped and built modern America; all of whom had contributed to the book's content. People like John D. Rockefeller, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, Alexander Graham Bell and many others. Hill interviewed over 500 people in all, but reserved the 118 copies for individuals who had been particularly important to his research. Andrew Carnegie

Henry Ford did not like the fact that Andrew Carnegie had shared SECRETS with Napoleon Hill and in turn Mr. Hill had published a book based on this information. Mr. Ford bought up all the published issues of The Law of Success in Fifteen lessons and allowed a watered down version of the book, this time titled "The Law of Success in Sixteen Lesson", published in 1928.

For whatever reason, "The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons" was reduced to a smaller more "convenient" book titled, you guessed it right, "Think and Grow Rich which was published in 1937.
