A Master Mind group multiplies the mental powers of all its participants. This is the "secret ingredient," Hill insisted, that delivers lasting success. Now, acclaimed historian and New Thought author, MITCH HOROWITZ shows you, step by step, how and why the Master Mind works-and how truly easy it is to form and maintain your own Master Mind group. If you love the motivational lessons of Napoleon Hill, you cannot afford to be without the Napoleon Hill Success Course on the Master Mind.
