    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?

    Amazing content ruined by the editors commentary. Someone please make this available without Sharon's distractions

    Bad voice, bad jokes, weak content

    no ... i still LOVE the self help topic

    no it really had no redeeming qualities ...

    dont waste you money with this book .... 3/4 of it is fluff ... and the 1/4 that has content is badly illustrated and not very wise.

    Everything you thought you knew about marketing is obsolete. We can see the incontrovertible evidence right in front of us. A new generation of multibillion dollar brands - Facebook, Twitter, AirBnb, Evernote, and countless others - have been built without spending a dime on traditional marketing techniques. No press releases, no PR firm, no Madison Avenue, no billboards in Times Square. It wasn’t luck that took them from tiny start-ups to massive success. They have a new strategy.

    What did you love best about Growth Hacker Marketing?

    what i liked best is the wide variety of examples, which stimulated a 1,000s new ideas that have been waiting in my mind to come out


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, i would think it is best to listen to this book in one sitting with a note book and a figure on the pause button to write down your new ideas.


    Any additional comments?

    this book has further solidified my general idea that in the future the best business leaders will have a SOLID marketing background, with that the product / service will be designed with the market, message and reach in mind.

    The only lasting way to enhance your productivity and growth is to focus on a handful of basic concepts and repeat them week after week - and teach your staff to do the same. This audiobook explains how to tune up virtually every area of your business systematically, with just a little disciplined focus. Spend an hour per week on each "impact area" of your business, and you will be astonished at how much you can accomplish.

    Drawing on case studies, many from client companies, the authors show how to establish clear expectations and manage the unmet expectations that inevitably occur. And they offer a positive, principled way that engages hearts and minds. This book can help people at every level---from senior executives to front-line workers---enjoy greater productivity, profitability, and job satisfaction.
