Napoleon Hill was born into poverty in Virginia and began his writing career at the age of 13 as a reporter for a small-town newspaper. He entered law school but had to withdraw because of finances.
In 1908, Hill's career reached a turning point when he interviewed Andrew Carnegie, the richest man in the world at the time. Carnegie commissioned Hill to interview over 500 of the most successful men and women, in order to discover and publish a formula for success that could be duplicated by the average person. For over twenty years Napoleon Hill continued this research. In 1928, the formula for success that Carnegie and Hill devised was published in The Law of Success In Sixteen Lessons (2 Volume Set). In 1937, Napoleon Hill condensed his law of success into his most famous work, Think and Grow Rich.
