Reseña del editor
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 aquiring 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 accomplis

Se trata de un tremendo pastiche en donde no sabes si las páginas y páginas abordando un mismo concepto, responde al añadido de 2.004 o a la obra original de 1.937. Si lo tuviera que comprar de nuevo, apostaría claramente por la versión original.
The good point is that the what it says is absolutely true. It is important if what you want is accumalte riches and definitely gives you the keys for that.
The bad point is that even if the concepts are easy to understand, and may seem obvious, they are not obvious at all and are extrmely difficult to assimilate. In this sense, the book turns heavy, repetitive and "boring" to the non-dedicated reader. The reader must open his mind and try to cooperate to understand what author wants to mean. The other bad point is that while the book gives you the keys to make yourself rich, the problem is most people will understand they are not ready to pay the price for these riches.
I will give four stars, because of this lack of structure I mentionned, and lack of smoothness. However, the content is so good, that it makes it must and an exceptional masterpiece in this field.
I truly do recommend this book and it can be used as a way of life to get to where you want to be, if you work at it.
You have to read it. It's revolutionary.
