The Law of Success – Napoleon Hill

You can do it if you think you can. This book covers each of the ‘laws’ in great detail and its a good 24 hours long. I’d say a handful of books I have already read have based many of their principles on this books foundations therefore by reading and acting upon this book you may find your time efficiently spent despite its great length. The narration is reasonable quality but a WORD OF WARNING !…. This book was probably written nearly 100 years ago, the level of political correctness is apparent and whilst its not intended to offend women or people from a variety of racial backgrounds it is undeniable that the labelling of individuals in this book could be deemed unacceptable by todays standards.

Look past that though and take the book for its intended value and you will find some AMAZING lessons to take away. They are….
