Beginning in 1908, Napoleon Hill would spend the next 20 years personally interviewing over 100 of America’s wealthiest captains of industry, including:
Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, John D. Rockefeller, Charles M. Schwab, F. W. Woolworth, William Wrigley Jr., Harvey Samuel Firestone, Alexander Graham Bell, even Theodore Roosevelt, among many others.
…literally the “men who built America.”
The project was commissioned by Andrew Carnegie to further young Hill’s ambitions of documenting and teaching the strategies of financial success. Hill was offered no compensation, only the opportunity to meet with Carnegie’s network of the most successful men of the age.
