CELEBRITY SPY NETWORK:

 

On my FB page, we had a discussion regarding a late rapper hiring a Drake look-a-like (pictured above) to upload a damaging pic in regards to his sexuality.

 

Before this incident, "creating scandal" methods were present in the 1980s.

 

When rumors began to circulate that Teddy Pendergrass was patronizing certain clubs that were in contrast to his sex symbol image, allegedly, record company executives scoured Philadelphia in search of a Teddy look-a-like to fess up to patronizing drag shows and bisexual clubs.

 

But no Teddy look-a-like was ever found and the gossip eventually died down.

 

 

And remember we told you about the Tom Selleck look-a-like (Joel Crothers-right).

 

Someone was determined to make Tom Selleck gay when it was actually soap opera actor Joel Crothers having sex out in the open and underneath tables at gay bathhouses all over NYC.

 

Yet he was mistaken for Selleck at gay clubs, adult bookstores-(glory holes) and gay parks.

 

He would eventually die of AIDS but the damage had been done in regards to the mistaken identity.

 

 

Crothers was also linked to an array of gay adult performers.  One of Crothers best friends was adult star Wade Nichols (above) who also appeared on the same soap opera as Dennis Posa.

 

It's tempting to turn Nichols' story into a camp snapshot, a tawdry tale of the externalities of showbiz. The reality is probably much more complex. Born Dennis Posa in Long Island, our struggling auteur co-opted the name Wade Nichols in the mid-70's when he started doing skinflicks, initially gay and then seguing exclusively into straight porn. In 1978, Parker was introduced to Jacques Morali, the producer and impresario responsible for the Village People, the Ritchie Family, Eartha Kitt during her disco kick and various studio groups of the time. Morali and Parker allegedly became lovers and teamed up for Parker's one and only LP, 'Like an Eagle', released in 1979 on Casablanca Records, the infamous Los Angeles label (which had Donna Summer on the label) run by cocaine-crazed Neil Bogart. (For more on Casablanca check out Larry Harris' book 'And Party Every Day' for the inside story of this wildly dysfunctional but highly productive label). In 1979, Parker/Nichols became a regular cast member on 'The Edge of Night', appearing for five years as Police Chief, Derek Mallory. Remarkably, ABC never found out about Parker's double life, (of if they did, excused it as an excess of the times) despite the fact that his XXX films continued to be released as late as 1983. In 1984, Parker died, whether from a self-inflicted gunshot wound (a rumor) or complications from AIDS.

Parker styled himself as the quintessential clone of the period; a mustachioed, uber-male strapped into tight, silver spandex jumpsuits and was obviously at ease sexually with both genders. Perhaps someone will write a more elaborated biography about this strange character, who appeared on the Merv Griffin Show during the late '70s, and slept with many of the hottest men of the era (you can find some of their comments on YouTube and DiscoMusic.com).

 

Above, Crothers is pictured with best friend/porn star Dennis Posa/Wade Nichols several years before both men succumbed to AIDS.

 

 

And who could forget Donald Tripp (not pictured).

 

Donald Tripp was dead, but that didn’t stop fixer Paul Barresi from capitalizing on the gay thief and con man’s life. Tripp had made his living stealing designer-label clothes and selling them for a fraction of their retail worth. Barresi had once bought a $1,000 suit from him for $100. “I didn’t ask him where he got it,” says Barresi, even though I had an idea where he got it. Besides sticky fingers, Tripp had another interesting physical asset: He was a dead ringer for Eddie Murphy. For years, he used his striking resemblance to cadge free drinks, restaurant meals, concert tickets and even sex from gullible Murphy fans from L.A. to New York. “He had doormen [and] bouncers let him in clubs, he had people buy him drinks, he was running all over New York,” Barresi recalls.

Barresi realized he could use Tripp to create a cover story that would make the tranny's abrupt denials of their relationships with Murphy seem less suspicious.

They may have thought they were having sex with the Beverly Hills Cop star, but they were actually doing it with Tripp.

Conveniently, the impostor had lived in West Hollywood and frequented nearby drag clubs. It was the perfect explanation.

 

 

 

Hollywood is truthfully depicting espionage on the big screen.

 

African American men and women are occupied in a variety of jobs behind the scenes.

 

Lance Reddick portrays an espionage concierge at a hotel that caters to assassins in the "John Wick" franchise.

 

And actor Andrew French recently portrayed an assassin booker in an action film where he offered jobs to an array of assassins; if they acceptedr, they would receive a dossier on the target accompanied by photos and a six figure sum when the job was completed.  French carried out this function in the back room of an antique business.

 

Things have changed in the (real life) espionage game over the years.

 

Some new assassins are asking that they be paid in uncut diamonds instead of an wire transfer or bitcoin transaction.

 

And these new assassins also make their own guns; they no longer hire a black market arms dealer or submit a blueprint to a gunmaker on the darknet.

 

These newly constructed guns (made by the assassins) bear no serial numbers, and are, as a result, completely untraceable and they're not in any database.

 

"Build Parties," are very popular among assassins who desire to build their own firearms.

 

A “build party,” an event in which a group of people who eat pizza, drink soda or beer, and build guns. If you're a newcomer, you will be helped along the way by the hosts of the party. They teach you how to bend the receiver—the essential core of a gun that houses the mechanical parts and, in the eyes of the law, makes a gun a gun. And they demonstrate how to attach the trunnions, the stock, the barrel, the trigger components, and various other bits and pieces necessary to finish it off.

 

The people who help newcomers assemble guns at these parties, build their own guns all the time. And while it has the feeling of being illicit, it was and continues to be completely legal.

 

This class of guns has the potential to spawn an entirely new front in domestic and global small arms proliferation—and, as evidence suggests, it has already started to do so.

 

And now building one is truly easier than ever; what once required hulking and expensive machinery and expertise can be accomplished with relative ease and on the cheap using tabletop mills and 3D printers.

 

And since the only part of a gun that does require a background check is the receiver, the companies that sell them have created workarounds by offering partially completed receivers. Known as “80 percent” lowers, or unfinished receivers, they don’t require checks or serial numbers, and they are manufactured so that all a person has to do is drill a few holes, make a few cuts and, depending on the type of gun, bend it into shape for it to be completed. What’s more, some milling machines, small enough to fit on the top of a desk, can now churn out unserialized receivers with just the push of a button.

 

 

I've come to the conclusion that it's okay for African American men (with the exception of Steve Harvey) to support Donald Trump BUT it's not okay for African American women to support Donald Trump.

 

Kanye made the comment that "slavery was a choice" yet notables and celebrities traveled to attend his listening party and fans purchased his album which hit #1 in its first week of release.

 

Floyd Mayweather has always been vocal about supporting Donald Trump yet blacks cheered him on when he fought Conor MacGregor.

 

Dennis Rodman, George Foreman, Mike Tyson, Terrell Owens, Herschel Walker and Latrelle Spreewell also support Donald Trump and are never criticized.

 

Whereas Omarosa, Stacy Dash, Tina Campbell and Chrisette Michelle have been crucified and called every vile name known to mankind.

 

Why the double standard?

Sam Cooke, the 33-year-old soul pioneer, who was on the verge of cementing his place as one of the greatest entertainers in the world at the time, was booked at the club from July 23 to Aug. 5. It was his second consecutive summer at the club.

After years of enormous recording success with songs he had written, recorded and performed around the world, now-classics such as the monumental hits “You Send Me,” “Cupid,” “Wonderful World,” “Twistin’ the Night Away” and “Chain Gang,” to name but a mere few, Cooke was invigorated by the rise of the Civil Rights movement at the time, and had penned what would become the movement’s anthem following his death, “A Change Is Gonna Come,” just months before.

Sadly, Cooke wouldn’t live to see the end of the year – one of his most accomplished and prolific.

The line of patrons waiting to get inside Club Harlem on this Friday night — a well-dressed crowd of both blacks and whites — stretched south down Kentucky Avenue towards Atlantic. Across the street, as on most summer nights, there was also a line waiting to get inside Grace’s Little Belmont, a lounge where Sammy Davis Jr.’s mother tended the bar. Davis was slated to appear at Club Harlem a few weeks after Cooke.

Cars and taxis whizzed by dropping off club-goers.

Elsewhere in the city, Ramsey Lewis was at the Wonder Gardens, the Cole Bros. were at The Gables, and, direct from Puerto Rico, Diablito and the Davalos Orchestra was booked at the Around-The-World Room on Albany Avenue. The Steel Pier was advertising the Beatles “sharing their first full-length hilarious action-packed film” on Aug. 5.

Like several night spots in Atlantic City at the time, Club Harlem offered an assortment of entertainment with summer-long acts that year such as Larry Steele’s revue “Smart Affairs of 1965,” which the headline act that week would essentially star in; the “Larry Steele Girls,” a group of gorgeous young dancers that worked seven days a week during the summer, usually until the next morning; Slappy White as emcee; and Johnny Lynch and his Orchestra.

Club Harlem actually housed two showrooms — one up front, the cocktail lounge, where Chris Columbo led the house band behind Willis “Gator Tail” Jackson on this July night, and the main showroom in the back where patrons paid a cover fee to see the headlining acts.

 

Cooke was no stranger to the Jersey Shore, having worked joints down in Wildwood as far back as 1958. Guralnick’s book notes that he played the Hurricane Room in Wildwood the same summer he debuted at Club Harlem.

It was during that first Club Harlem stint that he fell for one of Larry Steele’s dancers, a gorgeous young woman named Betty Jo Spyropulos (pictured above).

“He tried to flirt with me in 1963, but I had a boyfriend that summer,” Spyropulos tells Atlantic City Weekly during a recent phone interview from her Long Island home. “In 1964 I was supposed to have that same boyfriend, but it [didn’t work out,] so Sam and I got pretty close that summer.”

Patti Harris, now an Atlantic City icon, veteran dancer, educator, artist and visionary, was a young (and also gorgeous) dancer at Club Harlem in the early 1960s. By 1964 Steele had her name advertised as one of the dancers to catch at his club.

Although Harris, a dancer and instructor still based in Atlantic City, doesn’t remember too much about appearing in the show with Cooke, she does remember that the superstar had bought a dog for one of the other dancers while he appeared at the club in 1964.

Yvonne Walton say: The back room — the main room — in Club Harlem could hold a couple hundred patrons, recalls Walton. In 1964 when Cooke was in town, the house was always packed, she says.

 

“We enjoyed working with him very much,” says Walton. “He was such a nice person, you know? Really, really nice and very friendly with everybody. We all took pictures with him. I had my roommate from college come down and my mom came down. They were so excited. He even took a picture with me.”

Walton remembers that “his manager,” Klein, took some of the dancers out to dinner at a “nice restaurant.”

“And [Cooke] would always say, ‘Hi girls, how you doing?’ He was very gregarious, just a really nice person. He never got out of [line.]”

Like Harris, Walton remembers Cooke buying a little dog for one of the dancers.

“I think Betty Jo had a closer relationship with Sam,” says Walton. “She was just so pretty; all the entertainers at the club were crazy about her. And she was so personable and nice.”

Betty Jo Spyropulos grew up in Indiana, where a producer caught wind of her talent and put her in a production that wound up traveling to Michigan. The show included the Four Tops, Jackie Wilson and other luminaries.

She came to Atlantic City in 1960 to work with Larry Steele and spent five years working the summer season (June to Labor day) at Club Harlem.

Walton adds: “He bought me a Yorkshire Terrier, which we named Cookie and I remember driving up to New York City from Atlantic City in a Rolls Royce that Allen Klein gave Sam for the Copa gig [pictured on page 577 of Dream Boogie] because Sam had a photo shoot or something.

“I was about 24 years old, and had worked with many stars at the club by that time, and I wasn’t really impressed with his Rolls Royce and things like that. I remember he had a blank check to get whatever we wanted and I went to buy the dog with Sam’s driver — I forget his name — after we dropped him off at the photo shoot in New York.”

According to Guralnick, this would not have been a rare thing for Cooke to have “girls” in the many cities he performed. “Sam and his wife Barbara had a pretty open marriage,” he says.

Spyropulos remembers that she and the driver picked up Cooke after getting the dog “for about $150.” They named the dog Lady Cookie Harlem the II, of New York.

“That was the name. It was registered with the Kennel Club,” Spyropulos recalls.

Spyropulos tells Atlantic City Weekly that she doesn’t believe that what has been the long-time story of Cooke’s death — which a jury declared a “justifiable homicide” in the official court case — is the real story behind the entertainer’s murder.

“When I went to the wake in Chicago, and I got to see Sam through his glass-top coffin, one of his cousins was there and he told me that the story of Cooke’s death was false and that he’d been dead for a longer time than what was believed,” says Spyropulos.

To this day she doesn’t think that Cooke could have been killed by a $3-a-night California motel manager (Bertha Lee Franklin) because the two, as accused, got into a very violent altercation.

“I have so many good memories of Sam,” says Spyropulos. “And I always defend him because of how his death was reported. He was always a gentleman and so clean cut.”

Although she spent a lot time with Cooke where he was staying in Atlantic City that summer, Spyropulos doesn’t remember where in the resort it was. She does remember going to some off-the-beaten path after-hours joint that Cooke knew of, to get breakfast.

“I had been working in Atlantic City for several summers and thought I knew of all the places to go but Sam, one time, took me to this place to have breakfast. It was an after-hours place, but it was like at somebody’s house.”

Spyropulos says that, sensing that the superstar was interested in her, she used to always pop in to Cooke’s dressing room between sets to let him know she’d be at the bar. The dancers were not permitted to leave the premises of the club.

“Five minutes later, he’d just appear right next to me at the bar,” says Spyropulos. “I saw that he had a liking for me so I would do it all week. We never got to talk much at the bar though, because there were so many people trying to talk to Sam. People would just come out of nowhere.”

Spyropulos also remembers the night Cooke’s wife Barbara came to see the show.

“His wife came to one of the ‘64 shows,” says Spyropulos. “And before that I would always wait in the wings of the stage and hold a towel for him. But the night his wife was there I didn’t do it because I didn’t think it was right. And he came running from the stage all the way upstairs to the dressing room, put the towel in my hand, and led me back down to the stage.”

There were two headliner shows a night at Club Harlem. One started at 10:30pm and one at 1:30am.

Nearby a BBQ joint called Sapp’s was busy, as was the club across the street, Grace’s Little Belmont.

“Pop Williams [who was an owner of Club Harlem] didn’t want us to go to the other bars,” recalls Walton. “One time, my mom was in town and we went over to the Little Belmont. And later Pop said, ‘You know you’re not supposed to be doing that.’ And he was serious.”

The businessman wanted to keep all the money on his side of Kentucky Avenue.

And on most nights during the summer season the avenue (dubbed “KY & the Curb”) was packed with party seekers of all stripes. Blacks, whites, men, women, all stood in line wearing their suits, ties, heels and stockings.

“The whole street was filled with people all night long,” remembers Walton. “People and all the entertainers in town would all come down and just have a good time. Kentucky Avenue was the place to go in A.C. Nobody was afraid of anybody hurting them or harming them. It was like New York City.”

The action, says Walton, went all night long at the club, and nearly every entertainer who came to town “had to make it over to Club Harlem” at some point.

Atlantic City historian Vicki Gold-Levi has the banner that hung across Kentucky Avenue with Sam Cooke’s name on it (“It’s more like a canvas material than a regular banner,” she says) and she is in the process of donating it to the National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.

 

Cooke didn’t live to see the genre of music he had given birth to — inspiring Otis Redding, Solomon Burke, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Joe Tex, Barry White and countless other African-American singers who had strong gospel-singing backgrounds, were well-versed in the blues and R&B, and who would forge the path of soul music in the country for decades to come.

 

 

Revisiting The Troutman Murders:

 

Allegedly, Larry Troutman was so enraged that his brother Roger was going solo that he snapped.

 

Allegedly, he was also jealous of Roger being a ladies man.  Women naturally gravitated towards Roger.  That's why he fathered 12 kids with just as many women and had nine grandchildren.

 

One woman gave this account of Roger: "I met Roger as a young adult and spent a beautiful and memorable evening with him. He was so kind, sweet and gentlemanly. It was a night I will always remember and I can still hear him singing only to and for me."

 

Roger was the best known brother in the group and that also bothered Larry.

 

Allegedly, Larry was very greedy money wise.

 

And Roger wanted to break off the business relationship with his older brother and manager. Roger's career, independent of Zapp, was on an upswing, and just when Roger's fortunes could have brought new money into the flailing Troutman Enterprises, he was asking for a split from Zapp and, particularly, from Larry's (inexperienced) management.

 

Larry was so incensed that he emptied a clip into Roger and later reloaded, killing himself.

 

Years later, one of Roger's son's (Brent) was convicted of first degree murder for killing his ex-girlfriend and was sentenced to 32 years.

 

 

While discussing his first love scene on camera with the Daily News, Cuba Gooding, Jr. revealed that it was "Boyz N The Hood," with Nia Long.  "I had taped a cup across my genitals so there wasn't any embarrassment on either of our parts, she was in panties and I had to fondle her breasts, and it felt like I was going too far.  It was horrible."

 

 

Before Andre Harrell was tapped to head Motown records, Diana Ross stated that she was the rightful heir to the throne.

 

"When they were looking for someone to run Motown, I was like, why didn't anybody ask me?

 

I called and told them, I could run the company!

 

I know so much more about the industry than the kid they were hiring."

 

 

 

Mady (or Mattie) Comfort was a jazz and lounge singer, dancer, and model. She was married to bassist Joe Comfort, who worked with Lionel Hampton and Nat King Cole, and who played on many of the Frank Sinatra/Nelson Riddle Capitol recordings. Gene Santoro, in his biography of Charlie Mingus (Myself When I Am Real), says that she was also a girlfriend of Duke Ellington, and that she is the "Satin Doll" about whom Ellington, Strayhorn, and Mercer wrote the song "Satin Doll." She died in 2003 at age 79.

 

Madi Comfort, a jazz singer and model, is Whittier, Ca.'s connection to the infamous Black Dahlia murder, one of the most notorious murders in Los Angeles history. Comfort, shown here in the 1940s, lived in Whittier for the last decade of her life.

 

 

Comfort, who died at age 79 of a heart attack in June 2003 after living for a decade in Whittier, was said to have been seen with main suspect, Dr. George Hodel, prior to the murder.

“She never talked about her connection to the murder,” said former Whittier Mayor Allan Zolnekoff, who was a friend of the late chanteuse.

 

Comfort had known Zolnekoff’s father, Red Mitchell, Billie Holiday’s bassist.

 

 

Comfort, who also sang with Frank Sinatra and Duke Ellington, had an even stronger bond to Whittier than to the high-profiled murder.

Comfort’s aunt, Matti Huff, was a member of the first black family in Whittier.

In another twist, just 10 days before her death, Comfort read a People Magazine feature on Hodel’s book.

She told her companion, George Parkington, who still resides in Whittier, that she could finally come forward with her history.

“Madi told George, `I’ve been carrying this secret for so long; we all knew he did it,”‘ Hodel said.

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS:

 

Cardi B has reportedly signed a deal with Creative Artists Agency in the hope of landing some movie roles. A source said: ''A big part of the reason she's pursuing this now is because she believes it'll be easier for her to be full time mom if she focuses on acting. Making music requires her to be on the road and she doesn't want to be away from her daughter for too long. The plan is for her to divide her time between LA and New York and work from there.''

 

Winnie Harlow thinks her bullies' opinions are ''irrelevant''. The 23-year-old model - who suffers from vitiligo, which causes the loss skin pigment - lost her confidence because of cruel taunting she experienced at school, but she eventually learned not to care about what other people think of her. She said: ''I was a confident child growing up, but that changed for a time when I was bullied at school. ''As an adult, I gained my confidence back by asking myself, 'Why do I care what other people think?' And now I don't.

 

Rap icon Rakim is back in rare form. The hip-hop pioneer has returned to the game with new music courtesy of Netflix’s “Luke Cage” season two premiere. The streaming giant’s must-watch series features the mighty return of Rakim with his “King’s Paradise." Like the first season, the show is backed by an excellent soundtrack which just so happens to include brand new music from the legendary Rakim. The song, “King’s Paradise” name drops Harlem greats like Malcolm X, Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne and the show’s titular character Luke Cage.

 

 

OLD SCHOOL:

 

Nile Rodgers (above-center) has revealed that he ''died eight times in one night'' after partying with Robert Downey Jr. in 1984, and admitted the ''coke and alcohol'' combination left him close to a ''typical rock 'n' roll death."

 

The 65-year-old musician and 'Avengers: Infinity War' actor had a heavy night of partying together back in 1984, and it left him on death's doors as the doctor was filling out his form when he suddenly came back to life.

Speaking candidly to The Guardian newspaper, he revealed: ''I died eight times in one night and they brought me back. Eight times my heart stopped.

''I was hanging out with Robert Downey Jr ... It was coke and alcohol. I was fine, but then I passed out. Typical rock'n'roll death ... you choke on your own vomit.''

STILL A MYSTERY:

 

WASHINGTON, DC — Two of the six missing Burundian teens who disappeared from an international robotics competition in DC have been found safe, police said. Don Ingabire, 16, and Audrey Mwamikazi, 17, were located safely, police announced. They were both spotted crossing into Canada. A police spokesman wouldn't say where the teens were found because of the department policy for missing person cases.

Police are still searching for the four other teens on the team who disappeared while in DC for the robotics competition. The team was competing at the FIRST Global Challenge robotics competition, which featured hundreds of youths from 157 nations worldwide at Constitution Hall in Northwest — just a stone's throw from the White House. Burundi is a small country in east Africa.

"FIRST Global learned the adult mentor of Team Burundi is unable to find the group of six students of the team who participated in the 2017 FIRST Global Challenge," an organization spokesman said in a statement as reported by the Post.

This is the most recent update regarding this mysterious story.

 

No word on the remaining four teens who also disappeared.

NOSTALGIA:

 

Sammy Davis, Jr.'s relationship with his father Sammy Davis, Sr. (tap dancer) has been documented over the years but we know very little about his mother.

 

Elvera Sanchez (September 1, 1905 – September 2, 2000) was a dancer and the mother of Sammy Davis Jr.

During his lifetime, Davis Jr. stated that his mother was Puerto Rican and born in San Juan; however, in the 2003 biography In "Black and White," author Wil Haygood wrote that Davis' mother was born in New York City, of Afro-Cuban descent, and that Davis claimed she was Puerto Rican because he feared anti-Cuban backlash would hurt his record sales.

Elvera Sanchez was born in New York City to Luisa Valentina (February 14, 1884 – October 5, 1996), a Cuban immigrant, and Marco Sanchez, who was from Spain. She began her career as a chorus-line dancer at the Lafayette Theater in Harlem, in 1921. She became known as "Baby Sanchez", and married Sammy Davis Sr., also a dancer, in 1923. In 1925 their son and only child, Sammy Davis Jr., was born. He would often accompany his mother and father to the theater. When the child was three, the couple split up and the father obtained sole custody of his son, taking him on the road. Sanchez was a chorus-line dancer at Apollo Theater for six years and appeared in Carl Micheaux's 1936 "Swing." She continued to dance until the 1940s.

 

After retiring from her show business career at the age of 35, she began working as a barmaid for Grace's Little Belmont in Atlantic City, New Jersey. She enjoyed telling jokes to customers and was known for sporting a gold napkin. Her connections with entertainers Count Basie, Billy Eckstine, and Sarah Vaughn drew these and other celebrities to her station, and her son Sammy would come to visit after performing across town at the 500 Club "and delighted everyone pouring drinks and singing". Frank Sinatra's valet George Jacobs recalled in his memoirs that Sinatra also liked to drop by Grace's Little Belmont in the early morning hours after his shows at the 500 Club to say hello to Davis' mother behind the bar.

From 1989, until her death in 2000, she was an adviser to the New York Committee to Celebrate National Tap Dance Day. Elvera was survived by her daughter. Ramona.

BLIND ITEM: (GAY PARK-AFTER DARK!)

 

This rough neck rapper with the gravel voice enjoys having sex with anonymous strangers in popular gay parks across the country when he's on tour. In his opinion, its much better than arranging hook-ups on gay dating apps.

 

This way he can remain more invisible as he backs up for anal sex with someone in the bushes who will never see his face.

 

He also enjoys the thrill of hooking up with different men late at night.

 

He's been known to prowl parks at the crack of dawn.

 

As you can see in the pic above and the photos below, men await arrivals behind trees and in the bushes (at an overseas gay park).

 

Most of the men who participate in this type of behavior consider themselves straight because they 're married.

 

Our rapper considers this his private adult Disneyland.

 

Who is he?

NEW EBOOK! (THINK AND GROW RICH):

 

You've probably heard of Napoleon Hill's legendary book "Think and Grow Rich," (2nd pic) which has sold over 15 million copies worldwide.

The bestselling book was the end result of interviewing and researching over 500 successful men and women in an effort to discover the exact method they used in order to achieve their respective goals.

Included among these 500 men and women were Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Theodore Roosevelt, Charles Schwab, Woodrow Wilson, Alexander Graham Bell, John D. Rockefeller, along with many others.
In the introduction of his book, Napoleon Hill gives mention of a Hidden Secret, which was in essence, the exact how-to methodology of thinking and achieving the goals you desire, not just that of financial success.

 

The secret is revealed in the book: "The Hidden Secret in Think And Grow Rich," (first pic). 

 

Examples: "If you are ready for the secret, you already possess one half of it."

"If you are ready to put it to use, you will recognize it at least once in every chapter."
"Somewhere as you read, the secret to which I refer will jump from the page and stand boldly before you, if you are ready for it! When it appears, you will recognize it."

 

 

Book Review:

 

I read the book and agree with it whole heartedly. I believe this was the much needed follow up to Napoleon Hill's classic.

When I first read "Think and Grow Rich," I missed the secret, so my results were great, but they were not consistent.

You will certainly enlighten a lot of souls."
