Born in 1883, Napoleon Hill started his life in poverty, but would become what many consider to be the founder of the modern personal development movement. Spending his youth in a one-room cabin in rural Virginia, Napoleon went through many upheavels, including the death of his mother at the age of 10. When he came into adolescence, Hill began writting for small town newspapers, and the earnings derived from this work helped him pay his law school tuition fees.
This success lead to the real watershed moment in Hill's life: an assignment given him to interview industrialist Andrew Carnegie in a series of biographies on famous men. Carnegie at the time was one of the richest men in the world, and he told Hill that he felt success could be channeled into a simple formula that could be utilized by anyone. Impressed with the young interviewer, Carnegie commissioned Hill to interview over 500 millionaires so that he might formulate the key elements of success. The project lasted over 20 years, during which Hill served as Carnegie's advisor while interviewing diverse figures such as William H. Taft, F.W. Woolworth and Charles M. Shwab among others.
The product of this intensive study was published in 1928 under the title "The Law Of Success" and later elaborated on in Hill's most famous work "Think and Grow Rich", published in 1937. After publishing numerous books and lecturing on the mechanics of personal success, and the importance of a positive mental attitude, Hill's status as the innovator of a new field began to grow. As of this writting, "Think and Grow Rich" has sold 37 Million copies worldwide and is one of the holy grails in self-help literature. By the time Hill passed away in November 1970, he had created a vast legacy that has imparted the laws of personal achievement, self-motivation, and sound leadership to a new generation of self-help teachers.
