Think and Grow Rich

Think and Grow Rich - Napoleon Hill

This is another book that I wanted to read for a while, since is a well-known old book. The first impression of the book is that is pretty similar to the book called "The Secret" because basically it teach you in a way about how to think to be successful and make money.
There are some parts that I like about the book but there are others that nowadays are quite out of date.
If you have read "The secret" I don't recommend you to read this one, and if you haven't then I recommend you more reading "The secret".

Some parts of the book that I like.
