Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill was originally written in 1937. This book is a great starting point for anyone interested in financial and personal development. The book stresses that their is no fast way to become successful, it takes hard work. But this book lays out the keys to getting you there. It's based around the principles of the Law of Attraction. The first law is Desire. Create a plan on how you will obtain a certian amount of money by a set date. See yourself already in possession of that amount of money and start the hard work to achieve your dream. The book contains much more and is a great read. I am glad I read this book and would definitely recommend it to others.
