Comments: I’m not sure if I missed something here but I didn’t find this all time classic all that impressive. I wonder if one of the reasons it was ground breaking was because it was ahead of it’s time but most of the concepts didn’t seem new. The only novel idea I remember at the moment is Hill’s emphasis on control in personal (i.e. love and sex) spheres of life and how it can often make the difference between success and failure.
The book had a lot of stories about the richest men in US at the time told by a very patriotic American. Lots of simple ideas and concepts made it easy to get through.
This is an all time classic. So, I’m sure you will not regret buying it and reading it. I just didn’t find it as fabulous as I thought it would be.
