The latest offering from the Napoleon Hill juggernaut focuses on old-fashioned determination as a path to success. Hailed in the introduction as arguably the founder of the modern-day success movement, Hill’s empire has encouraged readers for years through the Think and Grow Rich series.

In this highly branded and deliberately quotable book, authorized by the Napoleon Hill Foundation, filmmaker and motivational speaker Reid argues that although success is difficult to achieve, fortune favors the bold, and success comes to those who find ways to power through hard times. Reid breaks down the Three Causes of Failure: inability to get along with other people; quitting when the going gets tough; and procrastination.

He stresses the need to be flexible and forward-thinking in tough times. Case studies include the famous (J.K. Rowling, the stranded Chilean miners, Steve Jobs) and the obscure (such as Anousheh Ansari, an immigrant who became the first astronaut of Iranian descent). Fans of Hill’s model will find inspiration in the exhortations to fight entropy, overcome fear, have faith, and innovate; others may view the painfully stilted writing and flagrant sales pitches for other books in the series as tiresome.


This crisply written book full of admonishment and encouragement is presented under the auspices of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, which means it coincides with the principles of success first espoused by Napoleon Hill in his seminal self-help book, Think and Grow Rich (1937).

Reid, a businessman and motivational speaker, bases this book on not only his own wisdom about the success he has gained from his business experiences but also on interviews with individuals who represent business success stories—in other words, men and women who refused to submit to defeat.

The heart of the book’s message is called stickability—basically, having the capacity to not turn away from difficult conditions. Reid’s program is launched from Napoleon Hill’s three causes of failure: the inability to get along with other people, quitting, and procrastination.

Reid’s explanation of the components of stickability, which include maintaining flexibility, overcoming fear, and acting on a desire more than just a wish, are carefully articulated to apply to any reader’s personal circumstances, so that all people can learn to develop the habits and practices that will move them beyond . . . limitations. –Brad Hooper
