The Millionaire Map Reveals...
- You can't expand your wallet until you expand your mind.
- Becoming a millionaire is not just about all the things you want to have, but it's about the things you want to do and give.
- In order to climb to the financial peak, you've got to crawl out of the valley of debt.
- You will either voluntarily control your money now, or it will force its control on you later.
- The vast majority of people never arrive at their destination-not because they don't have what it takes but because they don't manage what they have.
Have you ever read a book by an author and it immediately changed you—your outlook on life, your relationships, your personal initiative, and your ability to withstand adversity? That is the common experience of those who have read the books of Napoleon Hill, especially his seminal Think and Grow Rich. This book collects the stories of real people whose lives have been altered by the work and wisdom of Napoleon Hill. With very few exceptions, none of the people included in this book ever met Hill directly, but they entered into a timeless mentorship or mastermind relationship with him through his many publications.
When you read this book, you will gain insight into how real people translate Hill’s philosophy of success into actions that forever alter the course of their lives. From multi-millionaires to teachers, counselors to humanitarians, the individuals who share Hill’s impact on their lives prove that Hill’s success system is more than a theory; it is a powerful program of achievement with enduring real-world application. Assembled by synthesizing the collective knowledge of hundreds of the most prosperous people of his era—including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and many others—Hill’s Science of Success provides practical steps for building financial, mental, and spiritual wealth. Similarly, the people who submitted “Dear Napoleon” letters for this book do not express their theoretical understanding of Hill’s principles; rather, they candidly share their real-life experiences with the power of Napoleon Hill’s philosophy of success. Take a journey into the trials and celebrations, failures and successes, of the individuals featured in this book, and acquire a clear sense of how you can apply Hill’s success concepts to great effect.

Have you ever looked at a good caricature -- one that captures an essential characteristic of a person and still poked a bit of fun at him or her -- and wondered, "How did they do that?"
Jim Stovall has been asking that question all his life.
Stovall has also been writing all his life, and he has been fascinated by the process of writing and writers.
In his forward to this book, Ed Caudill says:
"Jim Stovall writes in the introduction that he is "trying to caricature people." He succeeds, perhaps ironically in light of the fact that writers themselves are inevitably - sometimes tragically, sometimes commendably, usually unintentionally - caricaturing culture. This collection careens along the gamut from rich and famous to downtrodden and obscure. Some of them, the readers will know. Others, I would take long odds, are unheard of among the perusers of this volume. There any number of lesser knowns whose names are fleeting but whose work is durable, whether in politics, letters, sciences, or elsewhere. Some are masters of other media, such radio or cinema or illustration."
Jim Stovall is a former journalism professor who writes and draws obsessively and occasionally inflicts his work onto an unsuspecting and largely undeserving public.
When you realize that your success journey is really a journey of giving, you will unlock the potential for profound riches. The world’s top entrepreneurs and leaders derive their success and fulfillment from the alignment of their professional endeavors with their search for meaning and impact. Rather than waiting until they feel they have something to offer, they consistently share their resources to better the lives of others. Now is the time for you to discover your unique gifts and create a giving plan so that you can begin to live your legacy.
The Gift of Giving traces the ultimate giving journeys of Jim Stovall and Don Green, who have implemented Napoleon Hill’s timeless achievement principles to live a legacy of generosity. When Jim Stovall committed to finding a driving passion and giving away $1 million to it, he was a broke college student whose dreams of playing in the NFL had been sidelined by a rare condition causing progressive blindness. With the guidance of the successful businessman Lee Braxton and a worn copy of Think and Grow Rich, Jim brought himself from poverty to prosperity and became an award-winning entrepreneur and philanthropist. His journey connected him with Don Green, the executive director of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, who lives out his calling and continues Hill’s work through the Foundation’s many philanthropic efforts. Together, their stories reveal that you can render service and charity at every stage of your giving journey; you simply have to identify opportunities for generosity and take action on them.
You have everything you need to create your legacy. The time has come to live it now, while you can enjoy the gift of giving.

Her grandmother tells her, “Sky, I believe our ancestors have gone before us to show us the path and help us along the way.

Note from Author, Jim Stovall:
In many ways, Top of the Hill is a sort of homecoming for me. After losing my sight during my college years, I determined to be an entrepreneur, and my elderly mentor taught me using Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich. He passed away while I was still in my 20s, but he made my success possible. Years later after I had become a success in business and a multimillionaire, I wrote a book about my journey. Don Green who runs the Napoleon Hill Foundation contacted me and let me know that my mentor, Lee Braxton that I had written about, had been a longtime friend of Napoleon Hill’s, and Mr. Braxton actually gave the eulogy at Napoleon Hill’s funeral. So through the connection of my mentor, I feel somehow also connected to Napoleon Hill.

Despite the vast number of photographs associated with the Civil War, we have no photos of the battles themselves. The state of photography at that time could not stop action as it does today.
But we DO have pictures.
They are the drawings of the battlefield artists -- the Specials, as they were called -- sent out by publications such as Harper's Weekly to make a visual record of the pivotal event in American history. The woodcuts that Harper's and other publications produced based on these drawings are famous and well-known.
But what of the drawings themselves -- those made during the battle or in the evening when the firing has ceased?
Unfortunately, while many of them still exist, relatively few have ever been published.
This series, Battlelines, seeks to correct that. We begin with a five-volume set of those drawings related to the battle of Gettysburg. This volume (number 2 in the set) presents the drawings of the first day of the battle, Wednesday, July 1, 1863. All of the drawings were executed by Alfred Waud, one of the most prolific of all of the war's combat artists. You will find out much more about Waud in this book.
Watch for other volumes in this set.
