Paid a hefty amount for 1 book
He bargained with the book seller for about a month and convinced his wife too. Actually his wife was not in favour of spending so much money on just one book. But Russell explained to her that the book is very rare. So, he bought the book. But now his wife clearly told him that she will not buy anything else from now on. Russell is very fond of reading books, so when he saw this book, he could not resist buying it.

In October 2020, when Russell, a father of 5 children, came to know that he had won the book, along with a collection of other books written by Napoleon Hill, he was overjoyed. He has spent a total of Rs 18 crore for all these things. You will be surprised to know that he wanted to protect this book from dust, that is why he brought it home in a private plane. Russell told that this book is the most expensive thing he has bought in his life.
