It has since become the #1 Personal Finance book of all time... translated into dozens of languages and sold around the world.

The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you. 20 Years... 20/20 Hindsight In the 20th Anniversary Edition of this classic, Robert offers an update on what we've seen over the past 20 years related to money, investing, and the global economy.

Animal Farm: The Graphic Novel by George Orwell
This book was published 2 years ago by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and takes approximately 5.9 hours to read.
A beautiful graphic adaptation of George Orwell's timeless and timely allegorical novel. "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." In 1945, George Orwell, called "the conscience of his generation," created an enduring, devastating story of new tyranny replacing old, and power corrupting even the noblest of causes. Today it is all too clear that Orwell's masterpiece is still fiercely relevant wherever cults of personality thrive, truths are twisted by those in power, and freedom is under attack. Now, in this fully authorized edition, the artist Odyr translates the world and message of Animal Farm into a gorgeously imagined graphic novel. Old Major, Napoleon, Squealer, Snowball, Boxer, and all the animals of Animal Farm come to life in this newly envisaged classic. From his individual brushstrokes to the freedom of his page design, Odyr's adaptation seamlessly moves between satire and fable and will appeal to all ages, just as Orwell intended.
Outwitting the Devil: The Secrets to Freedom and Success (Official Publication of the Napoleon Hill Foundation) by Napoleon Hill
This book was published last year by Sound Wisdom and takes approximately 9.6 hours to read.
Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil The Secret to Freedom and Success Secrets from the Vault, Written in 1938, Revealed Today An Official Publication of The Napoleon Hill Foundation "Napoleon Hill was one of America's great, influential thinkers who continues to have an enormous impact today." --Steve Forbes, editor-in-chief of Forbes magazine Bestselling author Napoleon Hill reveals the seven principles of good that allow us to triumph over obstacles . . . and find success. Using his legendary ability to get to the root of human potential, Napoleon Hill digs deep to reveal how fear, procrastination, anger, and jealousy prevent us from realizing our personal goals. This long-suppressed parable, once considered too controversial to publish, was written by Hill in 1938 following the publication of his classic bestseller, Think and Grow Rich. Annotated and edited for a contemporary audience by Rich Dad, Poor Dad and Three Feet from Gold coauthor Sharon Lechter, this book--now available in paper--is profound, powerful, resonant, and rich with insight.
Outwitting the Devil: The Complete Text, Reproduced from Napoleon Hill's Original Manuscript, Including Never-Before Published Content (Official Publication of the Napoleon Hill Foundation) by Napoleon Hill
This book was published this year by Sound Wisdom and takes approximately 10.7 hours to read.
Following the success of his 1937 landmark bestseller, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill wrote Outwitting the Devil, an exposé on the methods the Devil uses to ensare and control the minds of human beings. Exploring the innermost depths of the psychology of motivation to understand why so many individuals, including himself, cannot find the initiative and courage they need to consistently implement the philosophy of individual achievement, Hill went so far as to interview the Devil himself. The resulting confession from the Devil made this book so controversial as to remain unpublished for over 70 years. Now it is your turn to break the Devil's code and free yourself from the hidden methods of control that lead to ruin. In this reproduction of the complete text of Hill's original manuscript is laid out the exact nature of the power by which the Devil disarms human beings with fear, procrastination, anger, and jealousy so that they do not reach their full potential. This is the same power that paralyzed millions of individuals with fear and despondency during the Great Depression and continues to hold people back from their dreams. Complacency and mediocrity are not the root issue; they are symptoms of deeper ills that we are conditioned by society to accept. But you must open your mind to acquire knowledge and consider facts that might not harmonize with your personal beliefs in order to access a greater truth that will, as Hill said in his original preface, "bring harmony out of chaos in this age of frustration and fear." If you have been the victim of lost courage, weakened enthusiasm, and lack of self-discipline--if you are demoralized and plagued by fear, anxiety, overwhelm, or apathy--the seven principles to freedom detailed in this book herald your redemption. You will finally become independent of the causes of failure and misery, break the bonds of destructive habits, and unlock the secret of a natural law as significant as the law of gravity so that you can outwit the devil once and for all.
Napoleon vs. the Bunnies by J. F. Fox
This book was published this year by Kids Can Press and takes approximately 1.3 hours to read.
You’ve heard of the Battle of Waterloo? Now read the story of Bunnyloo. Contrary to popular belief, Waterloo may not have been Napoleon Bonaparte’s most crushing defeat. It may have been an event that occurred in 1807. You see, Napoleon’s staff had been ordered to round up rabbits for a celebratory hunt, only, they captured domesticated, not wild, rabbits. So, rather than run away when they were released, the rabbits ran straight at Napoleon. Now, some might think Napoleon — king overthrower, army commander, territory conqueror — would only laugh at an advancing battalion of cute, fluffy bunnies. Well, think again! Napoleon? Afraid of bunnies? It’s a hare-raising idea!
