Initially the book is about positive visualisation, and although excessively wordy, it is written in a direct style that is compelling and easy to read. The later parts of the book get increasingly bizarre, he is not exactly flicking away the gathering ectoplasm with his gutta percha cane, but things do get a bit odd. However some eccentric ideas and plentiful references to people that were famous then, but are little known now, just add to the period charm of the book.
At heart it is about adopting a positive mindset, being so fixed in your self belief and determination to succeed, with your goal so firmly in your mind, that some level of success seems almost inevitable. Although dated, there is still something important in here, and if you have not already done so, then it remains well worth reading.
This book is more about the personality traits evident in the 40 millionaires studied by Hill in 1937 (when a millionaire was a substantially wealthy person, more so than today). I would suggest that the wealth these people accumulated was a side effect of their personality.
Hill goes into a lot of detail in a wide range of subjects including - faith, desire, imagination, planning, decision and persistence - key traits and skills which have not really changed since the book was written.
There are a number of questionnaires in the book which challenge you to think about your own personality traits, and how they match the blueprint of successful (rich) people - and they can help you make positive changes to your life to be more successful.
Some of the book is obviously dated (such as letters of recommendation) - but any smart person can draw parallels to modern society (in the case of letters of recommendation - LinkedIn recommendation).
This book won't make you literally rich, but will help steer you towards the personality traits of those who are.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading it too, the fact it was written in the 30's also give it a slightly different style that you don't see that often anymore. But it was engaging nonetheless.
A word of warning however, you motivational book readers that get twelve pages in and give up....don't waste your money here. Go and buy don't sweat the small stuff and read small easy chapters, this book you really have to chew through. The concepts are deep and require a lot of inward reflection. If you're ready this book of perfect. If your not its going to sit on the coffee table making you feel bad.
