About the Book
I could sum up this review in three words: Buy this book! If you want to know how to achieve success in any area of your life, then this classic book is a must-read. Think and Grow Rich focuses on how to achieve financial success, but the principles in the book can apply to any goal that you may have.
This book talks about the most important thing you need to make your dreams come true; your thoughts. It also offers solid advice on how you should take action and achieve your goals.
Who is this book for?
This book is literally for everyone. This books teaches you important things that you never learned in school. It shows you how to find success in any area that you want. It goes into detail about how your mind is the most important (and only) thing that will provide you with success.
There is so much information in this book that you’ll keep referring to it time and time again. You can find the unedited edition of the book here.
What’s Inside the Book?
You’ll be entertained with lots of real life examples, but more importantly, you’ll learn how to apply the techniques that every really successful person has used to become so successful, and to maintain their success throughout their lifetime.
This book teaches you about the law of attraction, but it goes into great detail about what you need to do to make your dreams a reality. It is not some metaphysical book that tells you to just thing good thoughts and meditate. Think and Grow Rich does talk about the power of your thoughts, and how your thoughts are everything. But it also talks about desire, faith, decision making, mastering procrastination, and much more.
This is a book you will keep reading over and over. Each time I read it, I pick up something new that helps me achieve my goals.

I once read somewhere that if a product is good, you don’t need to say much about it. It’s only when you give it a bad review that you have to write a lot to explain yourself. My review of Think and Grow Rich is simple: This is probably one of the best books about success I have ever read. So do yourself a favor and read this book! Applying the principles you find in this book will surely put you on the road to success.
