EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN Few things in recent history have had the impact of The Secret. Created by Rhonda Byrnes, the video program and book have taken the ideas of the New Thought Movement that flourished in America at the turn of the twentieth century and made them as intriguing as The Da Vinci Code and as up-to-date as this morning’s headlines. The success of this phenomenon has also awakened a fascination with those authors whose ideas of personal empowerment created the original movement. Highroads is pleased to point out that we are the publisher of the most successful author of them all. This book, The Secret Law of Attraction as explained by Napoleon Hill, focuses its attention on two of the most famous names mentioned as keepers of the secret––Andrew Carnegie and Napoleon Hill––and on how Carnegie conveyed his understanding of this Secret Law of Attraction to Hill––who, in turn, transformed those concepts into the best-selling success book in the history of publishing: Think and Grow Rich. THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF ONE OF THE MOST FATEFUL MEETINGS IN PUBLISHING HISTORY One hundred years ago, in 1908, Napoleon Hill stood in the foyer of Andrew Carnegie’s 64-room Fifth Avenue mansion, waiting for the butler to escort him to the library where he was to meet with the famed steel tycoon and philanthropist. Hill had been hired by a magazine to write a profile on Carnegie, and he had been granted three hours in which to interview him. However, by the end of the allotted time, Carnegie had become so taken with the intelligence of this intense young man that he kept extending their meeting until it had stretched into a three-day marathon. Hill’s entire career as an author is the result of what he learned at that meeting. CARNEGIE'S VERSION OF THE LAW OF ATTRACTION During those three days, Andrew Carnegie set forth in detail his personal philosophy of wealth and success. It was a philosophy that drew upon the basic New Thought concept of the Law of Attraction, but Carnegie’s version was tempered with the practical lessons learned by a man who had raised himself out of poverty to create one of the greatest fortunes the world has ever known. THE SECRET BEHIND HILL'S BESTSELLERS The Law of Attraction and the other Laws of Success that stem from it are all part of the grand secret that Andrew Carnegie imparted to Napoleon Hill at their famous meeting. It is that secret which runs through Hill’s masterwork, The Law of Success, and it is literally the subject of the first sentence in his classic bestseller, Think and Grow Rich—which promises that the Carnegie secret will appear in every chapter of the book. THE COMPLETE SECRET IN ONE BOOK For the first time, Napoleon Hill’s books have been carefully analyzed to identify those passages dealing with the Law of Attraction as well as the lesser-known of Carnegie’s laws that govern personal achievement and success. These key sections have been brought together between the covers of this one book, The Secret Law of Attraction
