Napoleon Hill is considered to have influenced more people into success than any other person in history. He has been perhaps the most influential man in the area of personal success technique development, primarily through his classic book Think and Grow Rich which has helped millions of people. Napoleon Hill was born into poverty in 1883 in a one-room cabin. He began his writing career at age 13 and went on to become America’s most beloved motivational author. He dedicated more than 25 years of his life to define the reasons by which so many people fail to achieve true financial success and happiness in their life.
