    Story
    (537)

    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....

    Would you try another book from Napoleon Hill and Sharon Lechter (editor) and/or Dan John Miller and Phil Gigante ?

    No. I will never buy anything associated with Sharon Lechter. Her opertunitistic and severly irritating interruptions on each passage and sub-passage greatly detracts from this great art. Even after the Devil makes it clear that "loosely organized opinions" are nothing more than egotistical expressions and one of the greatest sins of mankind, she still continues to frequently interrupt Napoleon's writings with irrelivant conservative stream of consiousensess muddled ideas. Not only was this book from Napoleon Hill blocked from being published by his family for nearly 80 years, at its publishing, a conservative, unintellectual and religious spin on Hill's amazing work is attempted through Lechter's exasperating interludes. Brilliance Audio, please publish a version of this book that does not require the audience to push the fast-forward button every 3-4 minutes.


    Any additional comments?

    Publish a version of this book that does not contain adlibs. Letcher comments are simpleminded and unorganized.

    First published by brothers Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm in 1812 as a collection of retold Germanic folk stories, this collection of such well-known fairytales as Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty transports listeners to a realm where “Once upon a time” often ends up “happily ever after”…and where giants, princesses, kings and fairies pursue power, find true love, have all sorts of magical adventures — and in the process reveal multi-faceted truths about human nature.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales to be better than the print version?

    Our 6 year old has listened to this audiobook at least 5 times, and her favorite stories even more. I am ecstatic to see Robin Field narrates many other children's books as well. He does a variety of voices with so much talent. His excellent narration gives a special quality to the stories, making our child want to listen to them over and over again.

    Love the morals of the stories.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    There are many fascinating documentaries on what today's astrophysicist are discovering and what people like Stephen Hawking say might be possible someday. Could traveling past the speed of light be possible someday? The book, it is written beautifully and very gripping. I love every minute. 2 hrs is not enough; I want a series from this author. Call me greedy. Deserves no less than 5 stars.

    What did you love best about Ultramarathon Man?

    This book is entertaining, fun, pleasant to listen to and passionate. Karnazes expresses intense passion sometimes that catches you by surprise, which adds a lot of depth. If you are looking for deep lessons of society, good and evil, state and human nature, listen to something like War & Peace, but if you are able to appreciate simple truths, heart-felt expression, lessons on never giving up on your dreams and having the kind of attitude that fosters success against immeasurable odds, this book is for you.
