Born in 1860 in the United States, Wallace D. Wattles popularized New Thought principles in his ground-breaking classics "The Science of Getting Rich," "The Science of Being Great," and The Science of Being Well. A great influence on future generations of success writers, he died in 1911.
Born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1885, Robert Collier trained to become a priest early in his life, before settling on a career in business, achieving success in the fields of advertising, publishing, and engineering. After recovering from a chronic illness with the help of mental healing, Collier began studying New Thought, metaphysical, and success principles. He distilled these principles into a popular and influential pamphlet series, "The Secret of the Ages," in 1926. He began issuing a second pamphlet series called "The Secret of Gold" in 1927 and completed it the following year under the title "The Life Magnet." He died in 1950."
"During the past twenty-five years I have been blessed with more good fortune than any individual deserves but I shudder to think where I'd be today, or what I'd be doing if I had not been exposed to Napoleon Hill's philosophy. It changed my life."
