Where “Think and get rich” does not meet the mark

  • Inconsistency and Oversimplification: The focus of the book on personal determination and unwavering belief often obscure the part external factors can play in achieving successThis includes privilege, access resources and systemic inequality. One could argue that this method is over simplified and overlooks the complexity of achieving success.
  • Anecdotal evidence and lack of Scientific Support: While Hill’s use of personal anecdotes, interviews and other types of anecdotal evidence is fascinating, it lacks the scientific rigor that is associated with research. There are serious concerns regarding the generalizability of his findings as well as the effectiveness of his methods.
  • Get Rich Quick: Many critics believe that the book encourages an “get rich quickly” mentality. They claim that this could result in unhealthy obsessions with money and neglecting personal fulfillment.
