About the Book

75th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTOR'S EDITION The Revised, Updated, and Most Complete Edition Ever Published of America's Most Influential and Bestselling Motivational MasterworkIn 1928 Napoleon Hill stunned America when he published the first edition of Law of Success. It was an instant bestseller—unlike anything anyone had ever read before. Aimed at the average person, it offered the collective wisdom of America’s most successful business leaders and it promised readers that if they followed the step-by-step advice, they too would achieve success. And they did. By the hundreds, then the thousands, and finally by the millions. It’s about to happen again. TWENTY YEARS TO RESEARCH AND WRITEThe genesis of Law of Success dates from the day in 1908 when Napoleon Hill was assigned to write a magazine profile on steel baron and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. During their interview Carnegie became so impressed with the young writer that what was to have been a brief interview stretched into a three-day marathon. It concluded with Carnegie offering to introduce Napoleon Hill to the most powerful men in America in order that Hill could learn from each of them the secrets of their success. It was Carnegie’s vision that, in so doing, Hill would formulate a philosophy that could be used by anyone to help create their own success and realize their dreams. For twenty years Napoleon Hill pursued his mission, constantly testing and modifying his theories until they became refined into a set of specific principles that together formed the cohesive philosophy Andrew Carnegie had envisioned. THE MOST COMPLETE EDITION EVER PUBLISHEDOver the years, in its various forms, Law of Success has been reprinted more than fifty times. The first editions presented fifteen basic principles for personal achievement. In later editions The Master Mind, which had been part of the introduction, was expanded and became the sixteenth principle. Later still, Napoleon Hill concluded that there was another key principle—The Universal Law of Cosmic Habitforce—that in effect unified the others. This is the first edition to incorporate all seventeen principles, and it is the most complete and comprehensive edition of The Law of Success ever published. CAREFULLY REVISED AND UPDATEDIn preparing this revised and updated edition, marginal notes have been integrated to provide background information, historical context, and, where applicable, to recommend certain books that complement specific aspects of Napoleon Hill’s philosophy. Additionally, Hill’s original examples and anecdotes have been augmented with contemporary stories that powerfully illustrate the point that the basic principles upon which Law of Success is based are just as relevant and applicable today as they were in 1928. The Law of Success, Volume II: The Principles of Personal Power This volume explains the second four of the Seventeen Principles of Success: Initiative and Leadership, Imagination, Enthusiasm, and Self-Control.
