The “Think and Become Rich” Program falls short

  • Anecdotal evidence and Lack of Scientific Evidence: While Hill’s use of personal stories, interviews and other types of anecdotal evidence is fascinating, it lacks the scientific rigor associated with research. This raises questions about the generalizability of his findings, as well as the validity of his suggested methods.
  • “Get Rich Quickly” Mental state: Critics claim that the book’s focus on wealth, material success and money can incite the “get rich quick” mentality. This could lead to unhealthy obsessions and an inability to see other aspects of happiness.
