Napoleon Hill, born into poverty in 1883, began writing as a reporter for small town newspapers while just a teenager. When industrialist Andrew Carnegie commissioned him in 1908 to interview over 500 hundred successful men and women to help prove his theory that success could be distilled down to a clear-cut formula, Hill met with hundreds of the richest and most famous people of the time, including Thomas Edison, George Eastman, Henry Ford, Joseph Stalin, Theodore Roosevelt, F.W. Woolworth, Alexander Graham Bell, John D. Rockefeller, William H. Taft and Woodrow Wilson. Twenty years later, in 1928, Hill's Philosophy of Achievement was offered as a formula for rags to riches success and was published as The Law of Success. This life changing guide of 16 lessons has sold millions of copies for nearly three quarters of a century and was his first master work before Think and Grow Rich, one of the best-selling books of all time. Now you can hear 24 hours of the incredible philosophy upon which personal success is built, including: • The Master Mind...who can profit most by the law of success philosophy and your six most dangerous enemies • A Definite Chief Aim...instructions for applying its principles • Self-Confidence... heredity, the self-confidence formula, and the power of habit and discontentment • The Habit of Saving...walls of limitation, the slavery of debt, mastering the fear of poverty, “I have made a million dollars but I haven't got a cent,” and opportunities that come to those who save • Initiative and Leadership...the penalty of leadership and intolerance • Imagination... how it relates to success • Enthusiasm...how it affects you and others, the psychology of good clothes and the seven deadly horsemen • Self-Control...why poverty is the richest experience that can come to a child • The Habit of Doing More Than Paid For...The Law of Increasing Returns! • Pleasing Personality... 3 different plans • Accurate Thought...the principles involved in accurate thinking and a chief aim • Concentration...persuasion vs. force • Co-Operation...power through co-operation and your standing army • Failure...the turning points to opportunity • Tolerance...the plan • The Golden Rule...the power of prayer As America's most beloved motivational author, Hill's timeless philosophy has created more millionaires than any other book or success theory combined. What took Mr. Hill over twenty years and hundreds of interviews to gather, can be the foundation for your success. Open your mind to new ideas as you go back to the original unabridged source published now in audio to learn the secret to becoming wealthy

#1 New York Times Bestseller

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.

For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.
