Where “Think and become rich” isn’t enough

  • Oversimplification and a lack of nuance The book’s focus on individual effort and unwavering belief can sometimes ignore the importance of external factors that contribute to success like access to resources, privilege as well as systemic inequalities. One could argue 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, but lacks the quality of research that is required by scientists. It raises doubts about the generalizability and effectiveness of Hill’s proposed methods.
