Think and Grow Rich (1937) Napoleon Hill. Think and Grow Rich is the condensed form of this larger work. The prose has a galloping energy to it. The early pages allude to a secret that the book contains but does not spell out.
Hill suggests we ‘stop for a moment when it presents itself, and turn down a glass, for that occasion will mark the most important turning point in your life’. Try to resist that! The book has no shadows or complications; it is philosophically clean, setting out the things ‘which work’, and leaving others, rightfully, to the realm of mystery.
