Where “Think and become rich” isn’t enough

  • Lack of nuance, oversimplification The book the emphasis is on personal efforts and unwavering conviction, which often ignore external factors like access to resources and privileges. It can be said that this method is over simplified and overlooks the complexity of getting to the top.
  • Anecdotal Data and Lacking of Scientific Support: The reliance of Hill’s research on his own experiences and his interviews is convincing however, it lacks the scientific rigor associated with scientific research. This raises doubts about the validity of his findings and the validity of his suggested methodological approach.
  • Get Rich Quick: Many critics believe that the book encourages the “get rich quick” mindset. They claim that this could result in unhealthy obsessions with the money, and ignoring personal satisfaction.
