What you are today is not important . . . for in this runaway bestseller you will learn how to change your life by applying the secrets you are about to discover in the ancient scrolls. 

“I will persist until I succeed.

I was not delivered into this world into defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep.

The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.

I will persist until I succeed.”

—From the ancient scroll marked III in The Greatest Salesman in the World

Praise for The Greatest Salesman in the World

The Greatest Salesman in the World is one of the most inspiring, uplifting, and motivating books I have ever read. I can well understand why it has had such a splendid acceptance.”—Norman Vincent Peale

“At last! A book on sales and salesmanship that can be read and enjoyed by veteran and recruit alike! I have just completed The Greatest Salesman in the World for the second time—it was too good for just one reading—and in all sincerity, I say that it is the most readable, most constructive and most useful instrument for the teaching of sales as a profession that I have ever read.”—F.W. Errigo, Manager, U. S. Sales Trainer at Parke, Davis & Company

“I have read almost every book that has ever been written on salesmanship, but I think Og Mandino has captured all of them in The Greatest Salesman in the World. No one who follows these principles will ever fail as a salesman, and no one will ever be truly great without them; but, the author has done more than present the principles—he has woven them into the fabric of one of the most fascinating stories I have ever read.”—Paul J. Meyer, President of Success Motivation Institute, Inc.

“Every sales manager should read The Greatest Salesman in the World. It is a book to keep at the bedside, or on the living room table—a book to dip into as needed, to browse in now and then, to enjoy in small stimulating portions. It is a book for the hours and for the years, a book to turn to over and over again, as to a friend, a book of moral, spiritual and ethical guidance, an unfailing source of comfort and inspiration.”—Lester J. Bradshaw, Jr., Former Dean, Dale Carnegie Institute of Effective Speaking & Human Relations

“I was overwhelmed by The Greatest Salesman in the World. It is, without doubt, the greatest and the most touching story I have ever read. It is so good that there are two musts that I would attach to it: First, you must not lay it down until you have finished it; and secondly, every individual who sells anything, and that includes us all, must read it.”—Robert B. Hensley, President, Life Insurance Co. of Kentucky

“Og Mandino provocatively prods your attention into fascination as he masterfully relates his story. The Greatest Salesman in the World is a book with emotional appeal for millions.”—Roy Garn, Executive Director, Emotional Appeal Institute

“There are very few men who have the writing talent with which Og Mandino has been blessed. The thoughts contained in this book symbolize the importance of selling to the entire world’s existence.”—Sol Polk, President, Polk Bros., Inc.

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
In his first book in two decades, Anthony Robbins turns to the topic that vexes us all: How to secure financial freedom for ourselves and for our families. “If there were a Pulitzer Prize for investment books, this one would win, hands down” (Forbes).

Tony Robbins is one of the most revered writers and thinkers of our time. People from all over the world—from the disadvantaged to the well-heeled, from twenty-somethings to retirees—credit him for giving them the inspiration and the tools for transforming their lives. From diet and fitness, to business and leadership, to relationships and self-respect, Tony Robbins’s books have changed people in profound and lasting ways. Now, for the first time, he has assembled an invaluable “distillation of just about every good personal finance idea of the last forty years” (The New York Times).

Based on extensive research and interviews with some of the most legendary investors at work today (John Bogle, Warren Buffett, Paul Tudor Jones, Ray Dalio, Carl Icahn, and many others), Tony Robbins has created a 7-step blueprint for securing financial freedom. With advice about taking control of your financial decisions, to setting up a savings and investing plan, to destroying myths about what it takes to save and invest, to setting up a “lifetime income plan,” the book brims with advice and practices for making the financial game not only winnable—but providing financial freedom for the rest of your life. “Put MONEY on your short list of new books to read…It’s that good” (Marketwatch.com).
