Napoleon Hill Short Biography

The author of the best-selling classics law of success (1928) and Think and Grow Rich (1937) – the latter is one of the top 10 best selling self-help books of all time Napoleon Hill was no doubt an extremely influential writer and lecturer during his time.

However, despite his successes, Hill is an incredibly controversial figure in modern times.

Many of today’s historians have accused Hill as a fraud and doubted many of his claims.

Gizmodo is a science fiction website with the slogan, We Come From The Future described the author as such, Napoleon Hill is the most famous conman you’ve probably never heard of.”

But what I do know is that there are many priceless life lessons and wisdom we can benefit from Hill’s work.

There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge, both poverty and riches are the offspring of thought.”
