Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon HillLets be honest to ourselves and face the truth: success in business depends on a complex equation with a lot of variants, such as 1) how well your business idea adapts to the powers of supply and demand, which govern (and oppress) contemporary society, 2) where you come from economically to begin with (Ive seen aromatherapy businesses run by middle-class sons of bitches grow and be more successful than neighborhood food establishments run by poor honest people), 3) how much investing capital you have at the time of creating your business, 4) your race, and 5) sheer dumb luck.
Quotes like “The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat” are ludicrous, absolutely ridiculous and delve into the worst kind of new-agey, self-help bullshitting bullying: victim-blaming. So, if your business is not successful, you are to blame, because you simply failed to desire it enough? Fuck that shit. This book is a perfect example of everything that is wrong in todays first-world-white-heterosexual-male-dominated economic culture. Tell me that such ideas as desiring it enough would work in Somalia, hell, even in Egypt, and then well talk.
Dont waste your time with this codswallop. Read real literature instead: youll definitely increase your IQ this way.

The secret was brought to my attention by Andrew Carnegie, more than a quarter of a century ago. The canny, lovable old Scotsman carelessly tossed it into my mind, when I was but a boy. Then he sat back in his chair, with a merry twinkle in his eyes, and watched carefully to see if I had brains enough to understand the full significance of what he had said to me. When he saw that I had grasped the idea, he asked if I would be willing to spend twenty years or more, preparing myself to take it to the world, to men and women who, without the secret, might go through life as failures. I said I would, and with Mr. Carnegie's cooperation, I have kept my promise.
No one around me had any interest in business, so I turned my attention to books, blogs, and eventually podcasts. Those thirteen steps, he claimed, were the secret to building wealth. Needless to say, I was intrigued. Some of my favorite business quotes come straight from Napoleon Hill. Hill claimed he learned the thirteen steps to riches from Andrew Carnegie whom he worked with for two decades. Carnegie was the wealthiest man in the world at the time. According to Hill, Carnegie shared his success secrets with him and connected him with over of the most successful people in the world to learn their secrets, too.
