Recently there have been a number of people offering to sell a 1925 edition of Napoleon Hill’s Law of Success. Some of them claim that this book contains secrets omitted from the 1928 edition, which is published by the Foundation.

The facts are that Napoleon Hill was unable to obtain a publisher for the 1925 version, which was fewer than 500 pages long. He was encouraged to expand on the principles in the book, and the result was the 1928 edition, which contained more than 1,400 pages. It accordingly contains much more substance than does the 1925 version.

We have compared the two versions and nothing of any consequence in the 1925 version was omitted from the 1928 version.

None of the people offering to sell the 1925 version of Law of Success on television or the Internet, or offering coaching programs based on this version, is endorsed or authorized by the Foundation. As in the past, we urge you to purchase only products authorized by the Foundation, because only then will the proceeds be used for our charitable, educational goals.

We appreciate the loyalty of all our fine supporters.

Executive Director, The Napoleon Hill Foundation
