Cartoon inspired by Napolean Hill!


Years ago when I first came across the book ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by I used to jot down cartoon ideas in my little black note book. Here’s one I dug out and scanned in. This shows you my first thoughts on a cartoon… Never Give In!

You’ll see I jotted down the page number for reference. When I finally got to drawing up the proper version I could go back and re-read to spark off ideas and develop the cartoon. Here’s the final version in colour…

    Mr. Duszczak,

    I enjoyed immensely reading your blog and your cartoons today — wonderful stuff! — and I thought that you may be interested to learn that a new edition of Napoleon Hill’s classic book “Think and Grow Rich” has been published.

    (I am a lover of cartooning. One of my best friends here in the U. S. is Kate Palmer, who at one time was one of the only female political cartoonists drawing for an American newspaper. Kate lives just up the road from me.)

    In any event, the title of the new edition is “Think and Grow Rich!” (subtitled) “The Original Version, Restored and Revised.” I am the editor/annotator of this new 416-page edition, which is really an homage to Dr. Hill. (For several years I was the editor-in-chief of “Think & Grow Rich Newsletter.”)

    What I have done is this: to restore Dr. Hill’s book to its original manuscript content (it was first published in 1937, but was abridged in 1960), annotate it with more than 50 pages of endnotes (most of the persons and events he discusses are generally unknown to readers today), index it thoroughly, add an appendix with a wealth of additional information about Dr. Hill and his work, and revise the book in ways to help remove certain “impediments” to reading the book today (language that today would be considered obsolete, sexist or racist). None of these things had previously been done with TGR.

    If you would like to learn a little more about this project, a quick visit to will give you some details. The “Editor’s Foreword” provides more complete information, and the “Testimonials” page will demonstrate how well-received this new book is around the world.

    Here is the book’s page…

    The book is available on all the Amazon websites and most other online sellers (it is now the No. 1 best-selling version of TGR on Amazon), it can be ordered by any bookstore, and it will soon be appearing in bookstores everywhere. We also sell direct, at steep discounts, to personal success coaches and motivational speakers who use it for back-of-the-room sales and to teach Master Mind and Personal Success Study Groups.

    Our edition of TGR! is superior in every way to other versions on the market. It is a trade paperback, not a pocket-size mass market paperback. It is unabridged. It is 416 pages versus 230+ (depending on the edition). It looks better, feels better, reads better than any other version. It is fast becoming the “version of choice” among Napoleon Hill devotees and other students of success and high achievement.

    Thank you for your time and attention. And keep up the great work with the motivational cartoons.

    With all best wishes,

    Ross Cornwell, Editor
