Napoleon Hill, author of this 1920s classic, will remind you of an older, wiser, slightly wacky uncle who advises you about careers, life and love. This book is a wonderful collection of tips – many based on the ideas of Hill’s mentor Andrew Carnegie – that range from the practical (how to prepare a resume) to surprisingly New Age-like mystical talk about the infinite powers of the universe. Of course, like an old uncle, Hill can get long-winded and repetitive at times, but since he packs so much wisdom into his slender book, you will want to reread it over and over again, repetitions and all. getAbstract recommends his classic compendium to everyone who is dangling from the career ladder and wondering how to prosper.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to use your imagination to produce real assets;
- Why you should tap into the power of daily affirmations;
- How to avoid the traps of failure; and
- How to create strategic plans that will make you successful.
