There are many who claim that Charles Haanel Master Key System is the greatest book ever written. The story goes that a young Bill Gates stumbled upon this legendary book, and went on to change history…  

This book, claimed to be the secret of Bill Gates’ success is available on the net, completely and absolutely free. Here is one of many places where you can download it:

Read (and Reread) One Part Only Per Week

The Master Key System is divided into 24 chapters. F. H. Burgess, who wrote the introduction for this book, warned us not to read the book like a novel, but to treat it as a course of study, that is, read (and reread) one part only per week and thoroughly imbibe the meaning of each part before proceeding to the next. Otherwise the later parts will tend to be misunderstood and the reader’s time will be wasted.

Haanel has included an exercise at the end of each section. Follow the exercises week by week, train and develop your mind skills, build your power of concentration and visualization until you are able to manifest your desires with lightning speed!!

A Book for Health, Wealth and Love

The Master Key System reveals the secret of tapping the Great Cosmic Intelligence or Universal Mind and attracting from it Health, Wealth and Love into our lives. It teaches to recognize the Law of Abundance or Natural Law and place ourselves in harmony with it.


One thing about this book – it was published more than one century ago in 1912, hence it was written in an old-fashioned language and style, and can be difficult to understand at times. Also, I would recommend this book only to intermediate and advanced self-help practitioners, as some of the content is quite advanced and difficult to comprehend if you’re not already familiar with the Law of Attraction. Beginners may want an experienced teacher to explain things in a simple-to-understand manner.

“A century ago any man with an aeroplane or even a Gatling gun could have annihilated a whole army equipped with the implements of warfare then in use. So it is at present. Any man with a knowledge of the possibilities contained in the Master Key has an inconceivable advantage over the multitude.”

– Charles F. Haanel

  1. Thanks for introducing the Master Key System and sharing the download link. I shall queue this up in my list of books to read. I was reading the Think & Grow Rich book by Napoleon Hill as well and from that book, he recommends us to reread the book too, at least 3 times. I sense a similarity with the Master Key System, where the intent is to help shape our mindset for success? 

    • Absolutely. If I’m not wrong, the book covers health, wealth and love, but the examples given are geared towards wealth and success. Although the law of attraction can be used for everything, so if you can apply it to achieve incredible success there is no reason you cannot extend it towards health and love as well.

  2. One of my favorite books! My experience with this book (and the law of attraction in general) has been nothing short of a miracle. Throughout my twenties I worked through addictions and problems with depression and anxiety and it was only when I started to really become conscious of the thoughts that I was thinking – that “fertile” ground, that I realized I had created 99% of my problems through my thinking. Fast forward 10 years and I run a number of successful businesses and have a very happy life – all thanks to the teachings in this book. Have you had great results from the practices in this book also? 😊

    • It’s really wonderful to hear that you got on top of your problems and build yourself a happy life through the application of this book’s teachings. My transformation was not so dramatic. At the time, I just learnt about the law of attraction for the first time. Besides practicing the exercises in this book, I was also reading other books and trying out various other methods. And I did noticed improvements in my life, but it was difficult to attribute them to this book alone.

  3. I have read The Secret, and watched the movie. I am an avid book reader, and much of my knowledge comes from my readings of the 1912 time and era! I would love to read this, I am curious if there is meditation, hypnosis, or even magic talk in this book. I understand the law of attraction, but would like to know more about the negative that you can attract from others wishing it upon you… like opposite of praying for you… Anyways, I like this layout for book reviewing and would love to use this as my example!

    • You just have to read the book and see. And feel free to go through the rest of my site for meditation, hypnosis and ‘magic’ articles. Just click on the SERIES button in the menu above to see all the posts/articles I have written.

      Don’t ever worry about others with regards to the law of attraction. If you see around you, there are so many seemingly bad people who seemingly aren’t getting what they deserve. If wishing bad things upon someone actually works, you would see many of them dropping dead right now. But does that mean we can do things like steal, murder or hurt someone? No, because it will come back to bite you. But it is your own actions which caused the payback, and not because others are wishing it upon you.

  4. Wow, I am getting this book immediately, I want to be as successful as Bill Gates and I am ready to put in the necessary work. Thanks a lot for sharing this awesome article as I know it would be of great help to the public as it has been of help to me.

  5. If this book is really the secret to Bill Gate’s success as it claims, then it should be a just have for every entrepreneur and individual out there who hopes to be successful in whatever field of work they are in. The rating of this book, being 95/100, is really high and for the fact that it is free and just needs to be downloaded is mind-blowing. Thanks for this vital piece of information. I’m downloading this book right away!

    • After you read this book, if you ever want to discuss its contents please feel free to reach out to me here. I am always ready and eager for a self-help book (or any personal development related) discussion.

  6. Hi!

    About 5 years ago I heard for the first time what this Law of Attraction is and I got extremely interested. I’ve done much research on this and saw a movie called “The Secret” which explains how it all works.

    I’m a living proof that the Law of Attraction is working and I’m very interested to learn more about it and develop my own mindset. I’ve just downloaded The Master Key System, by Charles F. Haanel. Looking forward to get into that!
