Last week we walked through 15 different lessons from Napoleon Hill’s never-before-published (until now!) book, It Will Place You Wherever You Wish To Be Among Men.
(Which has got to be one of my favorite titles EVER 🙂)
Well, this week I want to spend of time going through some highlights from — *drum roll please* — ANOTHER of Napoleon Hill’s never-before-published manuscripts that I was lucky enough to get my hands on!
It’s called Hand of Destiny.
When I started collecting first-edition Napoleon Hill books, I had no idea that I would ever run across something this special.
One of the collectors I had worked with asked me if I had ever seen any of the actual typewritten pages from Napoleon Hill. I told him that I hadn’t. He then pulled out three pieces of paper from his collection to show me. These original pages even had Hill’s handwriting where he had suggested edits! I saw that one title had literally been cut out from another page and pasted on top of another.
As I held the pages, I literally got chills.
He said, “These are just a few pages from a book Napoleon had been writing called Hand Of Destiny.”
“Wow! Could I see the full manuscript?” I asked.
He laughed and shook his head. “I actually charge people $10,000 to come to my house for eight hours and read this!”
“What I’d really like to do is buy the manuscript, so I can read and reread it over and over again,” I replied.
Again, he laughed. “Sure! I’ll sell it to you for $10K per page.”
I did some quick math in my head, negotiated on the price a little, and then smiled. “It’s a deal!”
After taking it home and having a chance to sit down with Hill’s words that had been lost to time, I discovered that the manuscript had sixteen separate writings where he told his personal life story between 1932 and 1954, as well as many of his thoughts on success.
I had some very emotional and special times as I read these pages, and I wanted to be able to share them with you.
So I collaborated with the Napoleon Hill Foundation to get the rights so I could put a copy of these rare manuscripts into your hands. My goal was to give you a copy as close as possible to the original. On the left-hand pages you’ll see an image from the original manuscript; on the right, you’ll see a version that we cleaned up from Hill’s edits and made a few small adjustments to make it clear and easy to read.
Here’s a tiny glimpse!
As you read these pages, pretend that you’ve paid the same $10K that others have for the experience, and I promise you that this book will change your life.
Get your copy here! 🙂
And stay tuned for quick-hitting lessons and quotes pulled straight from Hand of Destiny in this week’s emails!
