  • Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil: The Secret to Freedom and Success

    In 1938, just after publication of his all-time best-seller Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill revealed that he had broken the Devil’s Code, forcing him to confess his secrets. The resulting manuscript - Outwitting the Devil - proved so controversial, it was hidden for more than 70 years. Now, Sharon Lechter brings us this important book, annotating and editing it for a contemporary audience. Using his legendary ability to get to the root of human potential, Hill digs deep to identify the greatest obstacles we face in reaching our personal goals....

    Story

    Sharon Lechter tries to ruin the dramatization of Hill's work. But, the story is too good.

    If you like Think and Grow Rich you will enjoy this story which is a conversation between Hill and the Devil. The story gives life to his philosophy. Hill takes some VERY controversial positions. I can understand why it was unpublished for 70 years. The voices of Hill and the devil are very good.

    Sharon Lechter is the editor. She also adds 'clarification' to parts of the book. She is TERRIBLE. She brings nothing to the story. Only retells what we already heard and promotes her own material. That said, I would still recommend the audio. Just be prepared.

    Earl Nightingale said that he came to his “aha” moment at the age of twenty-nine while reading Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich - specifically the words “we become what we think about”. Shortly thereafter he recorded The Strangest Secret which went on to earn a gold record and became the largest selling non-entertainment recording in record industry history. Think and Grow Rich is the standard against which all motivational books are measured. The book (and audiobook) has helped millions of people create their own success and realize their dreams.

    Story

    This gives you a short overview of the book. This will be good if you have never read the full book or like me, use it as a quick review/reminder of the key points. But, it is not a substitute for listening to Think and Grow Rich (I recommend the original version performed by Erik Synnestvedt)

    Chronicling his embodiment of the American Dream, Total Recall covers Schwarzenegger's high-stakes journey to the United States, from creating the international bodybuilding industry out of the sands of Venice Beach, to breathing life into cinema's most iconic characters, and becoming one of the leading political figures of our time. Proud of his accomplishments and honest about his regrets, Schwarzenegger spares nothing in sharing his amazing story.

    Story

    Arnold lived the American dream. This book gives you his view of how he pulled it off. It is really amazing. He really did Think and Grow Rich. I am really pleased that he explains his business ventures with as must detail as the Hollywood stuff. His life before Hollywood is fascinating and you can see how he laid the groundwork for his success. You will not get the salacious details about the affair that ended his marriage. But, if that is what you want, just get a gossip rag. Arnold’s life was so much more than that. Be warned, he uses some course words including the F bomb a few times. But, that language was part of his life.

    Most of us believe that we will finally feel satisfied and content with our lives when we get the good news we have been waiting for, find a healthy relationship, or achieve one of our personal goals. However, this rarely happens. Good fortune is often followed by negative emotions that overtake us and result in destructive behaviors.

    This book is really eye opening. Does this sound like you – You have success and things are going very well. Then something goes wrong and you end up back where you were. Has that happened in your career, with your finances or your relationships? If you said yes, The Big Leap is for you. It is about how to recognize your upper limit behavior and break through you self imposed glass ceiling.

    The true story of how celebrity chef Sandra Lee went from being raised on food stamps to starring in her own TV show, Semi-Homemade Cooking, on the Food Network. This powerful, emotional, and astonishing story will inspire anyone who has faced adversity to overcome challenges and persevere. Sandra's candid account of her personal journey offers a rare glimpse into the life of the woman behind the phenomenal success of Semi-Homemade.

    A friend of mine suggested reading this book. Prior to that I had never heard of Sandra Lee. This is a pretty good rags to riches story. She overcame some really serious challenges in her life with hard work, risk taking and a lot a moxie. She did get some good breaks too. But, she was smart enough to take advantage of them when they came along.

    In his groundbreaking Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker states: "Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!" Eker does this by identifying your "money and success blueprint". This blueprint determines your financial life. If your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money, and if somehow you do, you will most likely lose it!

    This book may change the way you relate to money. How you think about it, manage it and make it work for you. It has helped me recognize some of the weeds I needed to pull out of my mental garden in regards to money. But, this is the abridged version. Get the book! It will be easier to do the exercises suggested. Doing those exercises are a vital part of the book.

    Think and Grow Rich is the number-one inspirational and motivational classic for individuals who are interested in furthering their lives and reaching their goals by learning from important figures in history. The text read in this audiobook is the original 1937 edition written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie - and while it has often been reproduced, no updated version has ever been able to compete with the original.

    Dave says: "It's a must."
    "The Original is Always the Best"
    Overall

    If you have read or listened to other versions of Think and Grow Rich you need to listen to this one too. It is the original 1938 text. It is longer than most other editions but, it’s worth it. There are whole sections of this book that are left out of other versions. And I found those sections to be quite valuable. As for the narrator – I thought he was fine. His delivery allowed me to add whatever color I needed to as I digested the information

    This is a very good version of a classic story. There are other versions of this in Audible. But, be careful. Some of the narration on those versions is terrible! The narrator here - Kevin T. Norris - is quite good. He delivers it the speech clearly and keeps in the style of the time period of when it was originally given. And the message of the story is fantastic!

    In January 2007, Deval Patrick became the first black governor of the state of Massachusetts, one of only two black governors elected in American history. But that was just one triumphant step in a long, improbable journey that began in a poor tenement on the South Side of Chicago. From a chaotic childhood to an elite boarding school in New England, from a sojourn doing relief work in Africa to the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies, and then to a career in politics, Patrick has led an extraordinary life.

    This is much more personal biography than a political one. It is an inspiring recollection of someone that is truly living the American dream.
