    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....

    If you could sum up Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, empowering, informative


    What other book might you compare Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil to and why?

    None.


    Have you listened to any of Dan John Miller and Phil Gigante ???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never listened to Dan John Miller or Phil Gigante before this book. However, I enjoyed their performance. It was a vivid and authentic, well-performed, single-act play.


    What insight do you think you???ll apply from Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil?

    In the book, prior to the conversation with the devil, Hill has one with his "other self" when the "other self" makes the statement, "You won't be happy unless you are helping others." I have found that statement to be a truth that has changed my life every day since reading the book. Avoiding "drifting," which means to let distractions rule you, is another life-changing concept, but also a life-long pursuit. I am now very aware of this concept and believe it has power for every part of life.


    Any additional comments?

    There are instances when the Editor's comments were good summaries of the content and others when she is sharing her views. You can fast forward through the comments if you don't agree with them, but continue to listen to the book. I am very grateful to the Editor and Audible for bringing to me this book.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Overall

    Of the many books in my iPad from Audible, The Help is one of my favorites. It stirred up a lot of emotions. Is the book about empowerment? Yes. Suffering? Yes. Triumph? Absolutely. Love and hate? In almost every line. Funny? That too. The black domestics and the frustrated writer are inspiring. The writer inspires me to speak out for the right thing. The black domestics remind me to love and admire even more relatives and friends who in the 60's put their uniforms on, went in/out of back doors to clean and yet maintained character and dignity.
