Tips For Getting What You Want (part 3) Books

The focus for this segment of Tips for Getting What You Want is books. Books are an important resource for personal development. (Also a fun and enjoyable world for pleasure reading.) They provide inspiration and instructions for improving oneself, overcoming fears and worry, learning techniques and a wealth of inspiration and information for self-improvement.

In my younger days, I was a sleight-of-hand artist. Every professional magician I came into contact with told me one secret to learning great magic tricks, read books by other magicians. It was also said that if you want to keep your trick a secret, put it in a book, since no one reads books. :)

Beginning users of the Law of Attraction, whether struggling with cash flow or already observing an abundance of cash flow will find great benefit from reading uplifting, positive and inspirational works. Many of which are considered classics.

I enjoyed reading your excellent blog today, and I thought that you may be interested to learn that a new edition of Napoleon Hill's classic book "Think and Grow Rich" has been published.

The book contains valuable sections and additional information that no e-book or other edition of the book has ever contained.

Its title is "Think and Grow Rich!" (subtitled) "The Original Version, Restored and Revised." I am the editor/annotator of this new 416-page edition, which is really an homage to Dr. Hill. (For several years I was the editor-in-chief of "Think & Grow Rich Newsletter.")

What I have done is this: to restore Dr. Hill's book to its original manuscript content (it was first published in 1937, but was abridged in 1960), annotate it with more than 50 pages of endnotes (most of the persons and events he discusses are generally unknown to readers today), index it thoroughly, add an appendix with a wealth of additional information about Dr. Hill and his work, and revise the book in ways to help remove certain "impediments" to reading the book today (language that today would be considered obsolete, sexist or racist). None of these things had previously been done with TGR.

If you would like to learn a little more about this project, a quick visit to will give you some details. The "Editor's Foreword" provides more complete information, and the “Testimonials” page will demonstrate how well-received this new book is around the world.

Here is the book’s page...

The book is available on all the Amazon websites and most other online sellers (it is now the No. 1 best-selling version of TGR on Amazon), it can be ordered by any bookstore, and it will soon be appearing in bookstores everywhere.

Our edition of TGR! is superior in every way to other versions on the market. It is a trade paperback, not a pocket-size mass market paperback. It is unabridged. It is 416 pages versus 230+ (depending on the edition). It looks better, feels better, reads better than any other version. It is fast becoming the "version of choice" among Napoleon Hill devotees and other students of success and high achievement.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Hi Dean...

Yes -- Books, Books and More Books Please! Some have called me an information junkie!
But... by reading books on personal development, spirituality, law of attraction -- I was able to understand these ideas that at first felt so foreign to me... And then finally from all that reading I have found my own voice!

I continue to use books, music, movies to enhance this adventurous journey! ;)

Hi Ellie,

I too love books. :)

One of my favorite hang-outs is Barnes and Noble. Of course it could be the coffee...nah, it's the books.

You are welcome.

Hi Dean

What a helpful selection of sources for more reading in this area! ... For myself as well as those reading my own blog who are rather uncertain where to look for quality information... I'll copy it out for them.

Your readers may like to take a look at my blog on how to use the law of attraction (and on health issues):
