Charles F Haanel (1866-1949)
Regarded by many as the 'Father of Personal Development'.
He wrote about 'the secret' over a hundred
years before 'The
It's hardly surprising that a movie called
was shrouded in so much secrecy before it was
released, and if you look closely at the original
trailer you'll notice the face of Charles Haanel
and also that the storyline is a description of some
of the mystery and mystique concerning The Master
If you haven't seen the movie yet watch it as soon
as you can. We have the whole range of
products available here if you haven't been
fortunate enough to have purchased a copy yet. It's
exceptionally inspirational, and was inspired by two
books...The Master Key System and
The Science of Getting Rich.
You will find the unabridged copies of these books
available here as well.
Charles F. Haanel was an
eminent American businessman who, having built one
of the largest companies in the world at that time,
authored several books sharing his life and business
success philosophy and techniques.
His first work The Master Key System, written
sometime between 1909 and 1912, was a 24 part course
delivered to readers over 24 weeks.
His students were the most prominent businessmen of
that era and his course reportedly sold for
US$1,500.00, which at the time was equivalent to two
years’ salary for the average worker!
Fable has it that the businessmen who studied his
course all became extremely wealthy and petitioned
Haanel not to release the course to the general
public, lest they might also make use of its
Haanel did eventually make the course available to
the general public in the form of a book which was
published in 1919.
The book reportedly sold over 200,000 copies before
supposedly being banned by the church in 1933. When
you read the book you will instantly understand why
it had the Church Hierarchy worried and in fear of
losing their religious, and highly lucrative
monopoly on "God and all matters Spiritual"
At that point the book seems to have disappeared
from records, although a handful of the 200,000
original copies are probably still in existence.
His other books were Mental Chemistry (1922),
The New Psychology (1924), A Book about
You (1928) and The Amazing Secrets of The
Yogi (1937). There were several other papers of
his found over the years and more recently published
as the Master Key Arcana.
The "Think and Grow Rich"
Charles Haanel's philosophies
are found almost everywhere you turn and probably
one of the better known proponents of his success
teachings is none other than Napoleon Hill,
author of Think
and Grow Rich.
Fast forward to the
The old adage that you can't put a good book down
seems to ring true in this case.
Again, surrounded by mystery and mystique, the book
seems to have resurfaced in the late 1970's and
early 1980's in either its original letter form or
in the book form.
Rumor has it that whilst at Harvard, Bill Gates got
hold of a copy of The Master Key System and
was so influenced by its transformational power that
he dropped out of university and followed his dream
to put a computer on every desk and more recently in
Despite the fact that this book was so very powerful
and seemed to have a life of it's own, it still
remained in only a very few private hands until just
on the turn of the millennium.
This time the book morphed into digital format and
surfaced in cyber space.
Despite the fact that it is now available on a
handful of web sites and also in paperback copy,
this is one of the very few web sites where you can
find it in Audio Book format with the entire
collection including the Handbook.
Could Charles Haanel have possibly known when he
wrote The Master Key System, that it would
have such a powerful, positive and lasting impact on
so many lives, over such a period of time?
Everything is covered in The Master Key System
