Think And Grow Rich Review

Think and Grow Summary

This book has been the bestseller for over 70 years and that became a good reason for me to take it for reading. Whenever I used to google about the books that one should read before they die, this book used to appear on the top of the list and hence I decided to read it as I wanted to check if the book was overrated or its worth reading it.

As the title “Think and grow Rich” says, this book explains the reason why only few people are successful and what all traits make them different from us. The author has explained money-making secrets by analyzing more than 500 wealthy men and women over a long year. Usually, we always see one side of the coin i.e. we only see the people's Success and their achievements, but we forget to see the hard work and determination behind those achievements. The author has briefly discussed about those hard works and what force made them to be persisted.

This book deals with the facts but not with fiction and its purpose being to convey a universal truth all who are ready to learn. Napoleon explained step by step secret for making money.

Think And Grow Rich Chapters Summary


The starting point of all achievements, a burning desire which made every impossible thing possible. Desires mixed with persistence and purpose makes riches.

It was Edison’s great desire that after failing 10,000 times he invented Electric bulb.
It was due to burning desire only that Edwin C. Barnes wanted to become business associate of the great Edison whom he didn’t even know and didn’t have enough money to reach Orange, New Jersey. He was so determined that he finally decided to travel by “Blind -baggage” rather than defeated. These difficulties are enough for people like us to be discouraged and leave our dreams there itself, but Barnes difficulties didn’t end over here, but he faced all the challenges which were coming as hindrance to his goal.

To Do for Us to become Rich

  • Fix the exact amount of money.
  • Determine what price you ready to give in exchange of this money.
  • Define the date when you want to posses this much amount of money
  • Create a definite plan and start working on it immediately whether you are ready or not.
  • Write it on paper, the amount you want to posses and read it regularly at night.

Only dreaming will not help because this changed world requires practical dreamers, who can change dreams into action.


The subconscious mind instantly picks the vibration of faith, it is one of the powerful emotions among all positive emotion. Faith is a state of mind which comes with the repetitions of affirmations.

Repetition of affirmation induces the emotion of faith to your subconscious mind that will lead you to the auto-suggestion state where you don’t need to voluntarily suggest something to your infinite intelligence, but it will happen automatically.

Subconscious mind doesn’t understand good or bad thoughts, but understands only vibrations, so, always be careful with your thought. Mishap will surely follow people who think negative.

   TO DO For Us.

  • Have self confidence in yourself as self-doubt is the biggest mistake in our lives.
  • Use word of affirmation, like, I can do damn thing which I want, nobody can stop me ever.
  • Repeat those words at night before you sleep.

Specialized Knowledge

Everyone thinks knowledge is power, but not in every field. If you are champ in your field and even if you are aware of many small things then also it is totally fine but vice versa is of no use.

TO DO For Us.

  • Prepare a plan for specialization in your field unlike of school/ college education system where everything has been fed to the student even the ones of no use.


Any small idea is a result of imagination. Whatever we use in today's life is the result of imagination only. If Edison wouldn’t have imagined electric bulb, then it would have been all together a different picture. All inventions till date is the result of some ideas which came as a result of imagination.

It is one of the most powerful tools gifted to us.

In this book many more topics have been discussed, but I found these topics more important.

My Review:

This book doesn't need my words as its selling is self-explanatory. I always by a self-help to learn something out of it, but from this book I literally learned so many things. This book doesn't only deal with "WHY", but also explains how great success can be achieved.

Many great examples have been given to learn and so many eye-opening questions have been asked for your self analysis. Even if you don't read the whole book, you can just read the questions that you have been asked at the end, from those questions you will get an idea of where you are now and what all things you need to work upon to achieve riches.

What all things I liked in this book ?
  • Honestly speaking, I almost liked everything which has been discussed in this book.

What all things I didn’t like?
  • The only thing which bothered me was that while narrating he considered men only. Sometimes he has also considered women, but such instances are very few. 

Any Reason to Read
  • If you have any definite goal in your mind, then do read this book.

Any Reason to Skip it
  • I don’t have any reason, even if you don’t like self-help, you will enjoy reading it and you never know this might be a life changing step.

Think and Grow Rich Quotes

The greatest achievement was, at first, and for a time, but a dream.

A Quitter Never Wins -And – A Winner Never Quits

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

 “When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.”

My Ratings: I would give 5 out of 5 stars.
