Napoleon Hill is one of the earliest personal development and success writers to gain fame. Though he, too, had his predecessors, Hill was really the first person to write a definitive one-volume work outlining a clear philosophy of success.

He was mentored by giants like Andrew Carnegie and Thomas Edison, and made connections with hundreds of the great industrialists and magnates of his day in order to compile and write the Think and Grow Rich manuscript.

You Were Born Rich by Bob Proctor

Last but certainly not least is Born Rich by Bob Proctor. This wonderful book, written in the late 1980s, walks you step by step through the Law of Attraction and the Law of Vibration.

According to Proctor, the Law of Attraction is just one of a series of fundamental laws that govern how the universe functions. It is, in fact, a secondary law, which has upholding it the Law of Vibration. According to the Law of Vibration, everything, from inanimate objects to animals to people, is in a constant state of vibration, or wave energy.

We can connect to this energy with our thoughts, and raise or lower our own energy. This supplies the fundamental mechanism that allows the Law of Attraction to work, as we are attracted to things that match our current vibration. To attract anything, then, is simply a matter of moving into the same state of vibration as the object you desire.

These are by no means the only success books I recommend, but they’re definitely the top 3. If you want to read more, I recommend you check out other books and audiobooks by Earl Nightingale, Tony Robbins, and Jim Rhone.

Which Book Is Best Of The Veronica Roth “Divergent” Trilogy?

veronica rothThere have been many YA series that have come out in recent years. The immense popularity of “Harry Potter,” “Twilight,” and “The Hunger Games” have inspired many other writers. One of the more popular series that has come out in the last few years is the “Divergent” trilogy by Veronica Roth.

Like many other series, this is a dystopian trilogy set in a future where everyone is classified according to their basic personality types. Teenagers have to go through a series of tests to classify them, and they then will spend their lives living with the other members of their faction.

The five main factions are Dauntless, which favors bravery, Erudite, which favors intelligence, Amity, which favors pacifism, Candor, which favors honesty, and Abnegation, which favors selflessness. The main character of the trilogy is a teenage girl named Tris, who learns that she is Divergent, which means that she does not fall into any single faction.

She ends up choosing Dauntless and meets an older boy named Four. Like many YA series, this has a strong romantic subplot. Over the course of the trilogy, Tris discovers that all is not well in her society and she inevitably ends up helping to overthrow the oppressive regime.

I thought that the first book, “Divergent,” was the strongest of the trilogy. Neither “Insurgent” nor “Allegiant” impressed me as much. I think that this is because the first book is the most interesting because it is revealing the world to us. We learn about it with Tris so that there is a natural tendency to identify with her.

I also thought that the world building was not as strong as it might be. The whole idea of a society based on personality tests does not really make a lot of sense. However, it is more believable in the first book because it seems perfectly natural to Tris at first. After all, this is the society in which she grew up.

Over the second two books, however, as she begins to discover the flaws in her society, it becomes harder and harder to take it seriously. This is a real weakness in many dystopian novels. They are, of course, exaggerations and often not intended to be realistic.

If you like YA dystopias, the trilogy is probably worth a read. However, you may be disappointed with it as it goes on.

The Two Towers Book Summary

A Summary Of Tolkien’s Two Towers

The Two Towers begins on a somber note as the Fellowship dissolves and various members fall prey to the evil that Sauron and his armies are spreading across the lands of Middle Earth.

two towersBoromir is dead and the two Hobbits that were Frodo’s companions, Merry and Pippin have been taken captive by Orcs. Committed to freeing them but fearing that both the lost Hobbits may already be dead Legolas the Elf and Gimli the Dwarf search despairingly for clues to the disappearance of the Hobbits.

Merry and Pippin manage to escape from captivity and in some of the most evocative writing in the Lord of the Rings trilogy encounter the Ents – huge sapient tree like creatures and protectors of Middle Earth’s forests. The Ents will eventually mobilize to destroy Saruman and the Orcs of Isengard.

Gandalf’s return in the Two Towers heals the rift that threatens Rohan and newly invigorated the armies of the West begin to form.

As the reader passes the midway point of the book Tolkien returns to the journey of Frodo and Sam – who by now have enlisted the help of Gollum in their quest to reach Mordor and dispose of the One Ring. Eventually they will reach the Black Gate which guards the entrance to Mordor and the final leg of their arduous journey will begin.

Gollum still strives to take back the One Ring and during the journey suggests that the group enter the lair of Shelob – a nightmarish giant spider. It is in these tunnels that Frodo is stung, paralyzed and taken captive by Orcs.

Sam takes control of the ring and finally realizes that Frodo is alive. As The Two Towers draws to a close we share in Sam’s unhappiness at the thought that is is still separated from Frodo.
