In 1908, Napoleon Hill met industrialist Andrew Carnegie for what he believed would be a short interview for an article. Instead, Carnegie spent hours detailing his principles of success, then challenged Hill to collate a proven formula that would propel people of all backgrounds to happiness, harmony, and prosperity. Hill distilled the knowledge into Think and Grow Rich. Here annotated advice from their conversations are released. There are three major principles: self-discipline, which shows how the six departments of the mind may be organized and directed to any end; learning from defeat, which describes how defeat can be made to yield 'the seed of an equivalent benefit' and how to turn it into a stepping-stone to greater achievement; and the Golden Rule applied for developing rewarding relationships, peace of mind, and a strengthened consciousness.
