From beating procrastination learning never togive up, becoming wealthy is shown to be a lifelong discipline.Thanks to the visual power of comics, all of the old rules are as valuable as ever, and now theylook like a million bucks.While creating relevant contemporary illustrations for Hill’s classic text was a challenge, westrongly believe that the result is an astonishing reading experience. This is not a “get rich”quick book. On the contrary, it is a profound study of human nature that has made it a perennialfavorite among many self-made millionaires.While many have heard that “quitters never win, and winners never quit,” captivating illustrationsconvey this wisdom powerfully. Much like losing weight by eating right and getting exercise,growing rich doesn’t happen overnight. Hill explains that accumulating wealth is based on hismethodology and system of beliefs.
