Jerry's wife, Esther Hicks was sitting in the audience during a presentation Jerry was giving in Phoenix, Arizona for his business. He used Think and Grow Rich as a basis for some of the information he delivered.
Esther went to Jerry after this particular presentation and said "You'll never believe this" and Jerry said "what" and she said "Napoleon Hill was just talking in my head and wants to talk to you."
Jerry and Esther went and sat in the back seat of their car and Napoleon Hill's energy came through Esther. Jerry asked Napoleon "If you had it to do over again what would you do differently?" He said "I would've told where I got the information." Jerry said "Well, why didn't you?" And Napoleon said "That would never have been published. They wouldn't publish that kind of material back then."
Jerry said he didn't pay a lot of attention to this 'meeting' and then one day when they were in Salt Lake City he went to the book store and in the self improvement section he found a chocolate colored book that he'd never seen before. He picked it up and it was Think and Grow Rich - the original manuscript before it was edited.
Jerry took his copy of the book and this newly found original manuscript and compared the two and highlighted every change.
