New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Gitomer brings you the very foundation of Napoleon Hill's self-help legacy: his long-lost original notes, letters, and lectures--now compiled, edited, and annotated for the modern reader. Twenty years before the publication of his magnum opus Think and Grow Rich , Napoleon Hill was an instructor, philosopher, and writer at the George Washington Institute in Chicago, where he taught courses in advertising and sales. These rare, never-before-seen lectures were thought to be lost to history. Until now. Given exclusive access to the archives of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, Jeffrey Gitomer has unearthed Hill's original course notes containing the fundamental beliefs in hard work and personal development that established Hill as a global leader of success and positive attitude. In Truthful Living , Gitomer has captured Hill's foundational wisdom for the twenty-first century. These easy-to-implement real-world strategies for life, family, business, and the bottom line prove as energizing and inspiring today as they were nearly one hundred years ago.
