Founded in 1958, the W. Clement and Jessie V. Stone Foundation honors its founders’ vision to change the world and make it a better place for this and future generations.

W. Clement Stone shared his belief in the power of optimism in three books that continue to be read today: Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude (co-authored with Napoleon Hill), The Success System That Never Fails, and The Other Side of the Mind (co-authored with Norma Lee Browning). These books are still available through commercial booksellers and web sites.

Mr. Stone’s inspirational self-help books, which have reached a world-wide audience, reinforce the conviction that anyone can become successful “no matter how poor his start in life.”
