Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
This book was written during a time when there was still a lot of prejudice in America. Some parts of it are as distasteful as it gets when it refers to some Americans as colored. Try to look past this part of this book and just take in what the author us trying to say and not so much the way he says it.
