Napoleon Hill’s Biography

Napoleon Hill was a very influential American writer in the area of Personal Development and Self-Help. He was a White House Foreign Relations Advisor during President Woodrow Wilson’s tenure and was also responsible for writing and preparing the celebrated speeches delivered by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt during his tenure.

Among other personalities who were part of the research of Napoleon Hill we have: Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Henry Ford, Elmer Gates, Theodore Roosevelt, William Jennings Bryan, George Eastman, and John D. Rockefeller.

The result of his research was presented in 1928, the year he published his first work “The Law of Triumph”. Before its publication, this work was submitted to bankers, merchants, and university professors who, by their eminently practical spirit and superior culture, could analyze and criticized it. He also presented to the two major universities in the United States of America to closely examine the work to correct or eliminate statements that appeared to be unfounded from an economic point of view. Not a single modification was proposed.

Napoleon Hill, as well a pioneer in the study of human behavior for success, is still probably the thinker who inspires most authors in this area of knowledge.

Currently, The Napoleon Hill Foundation (USA) protects the memory of Napoleon Hill and disseminates his ideas and works around the world.
