Hill’s Methodology: a Quest for the Formula

Hill, a journalist and salesman, set off on an extensive 20-year journey to interview the most well-known people of his era such as Andrew Carnegie Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell. His aim was to find the universal underlying principles that led to their success, and to distill the principles into a practical guide for all. His objective? To distill universal principles that are the basis for their success into a simple guide. This is the result “Think, Grow Rich,” which is a framework based on thirteen core principles.

What makes “Think and get wealthy” work?

The weaknesses and skepticism: Where “Think and Become Rich” falls short

  • Oversimplification, and lack of nuance Focusing on the person’s work and their beliefs, this book can overlook external factors that influence successExamples include access to resources, privileges, and systemic inequities. The book’s approach is often criticized for its oversimplification, which ignores the complex aspects that contribute to success in the real world.
  • Anecdotal Evidence and Lack of Scientific Basis: Hill’s reliance on personal anecdotes and interviews,while captivating, lacks the rigor of research conducted by scientists. This raises doubts about the generality of his methods.
  • The “Get Rich Quick mentality“: Some critics claim that the focus on wealth and success materially could lead to an “get-rich-quick” mentality. This could lead to an unbalanced obsession with money and an inability to appreciate the other aspects of our lives.
