Personal Finance Review – Think and Grow Rich Edition

December 2, 2007

Why pay for something that you can get for free?  I’ve been wanting to finish Napoleon Hill’s classic Think and Grow Rich after reading the first few chapters about a year ago.  Finally I decided I’d get ahold of the audio version and listen to it on my commute.

I put my name on the waiting list for a copy of the 12 CD set at our local library and forgot about it until this weekend when it finally came in.  It wasn’t totally free, I had to pay 50 cents for a new library card, still not bad for a cd set that normally costs $50. I’m in the process of transferring the audio to my mp3 player so I can listen to it as I drive back and forth to work. Some of my best learning happens on my commute : )
