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 - including fear, procrastination, anger, and jealousy - as tools orchestrated by the Devil himself. These hidden methods of control can lead us to ruin, and Hill reveals the seven principles of good that will allow us to finally triumph over them and succeed.
Fascinating, provocative, and empowering, Outwitting the Devil shows how to create your own path to success, harmony, and fulfillment in an age of uncertainty and fear.

"My simple faith is this: If we are created in God’s image, then we were born to create, and to create is to prosper. [This] previously unpublished Napoleon Hill manuscript.... I’ve read it and recommend it." (Rich Karlgaard, Publisher of Forbes magazine)
Thought provoking, inspiring, I saw myself in his words. I have changed because of it.
Napoleon of course. He was concise, highly prepared, relentless, and always probing for the answer. I was amazed at the questions, and the answers from the
That I can change. I can stop being a drifter even if it is day by day, step by step. And thru these changes I can begin to live my life, with zest, direction and freedom. What a wonderful gift Napoleon has given us. This whole world needs the message of this book.
Only that I have recommended this book to at least 15 of my friends and my biggest wish is that they do the same and the message begins to spread. It is GOOD news and people need to know there is hope.
The narrators were superb. The voices were compelling, especially the Devil. Very very well done and something you could listen to time and time again. Give up that next Starbucks with cookie and just GET this book. It is a marvel.
It was read in a creative way, with different characters.
I liked him, interviewing his dark side.
It is not about the money. It is about how you want to use the money.
I liked that he used Samuel Insull as an example of how not to end up. I've heard that Orwell invented Citizen Kane as mixture of William Randolph Hearst and Samuel Insull.
I was recommended this book during a Seminar that I attended. It draws many ideas and subjects from Napoleon Hills master piece Think and Grow Rich (Currently Listening to that now).
I found the audio both entertaining as well as it excited me to begin to apply the information in my life.
The interview with the Devil is powerful and there is a few funny jabs.
She violates principles in the book by offering her useless opinions. Other than that the book is quite interesting. Try to buy without her interruptions.
By far the best book I have ever listen to on audible. I couldn't stop listening. Don't put it off buy this book now. I can't believe this book was hidding from the world for 70 years.
I found this book to be awesome for awakening the reader to the errors in their thinking that could cause them to stumble, over and over again in life. I initially thought the dialogue was cheesy, but then it got good. The Devil, which represents the negative spectrum of our ego has never been represented so thoroughly. This representation is the missing piece in the personal development genre.
His interview with the devil was RIVETING!!
This book is ONE OF A KIND!!
Their voices really added to the experience! The voice of the devil was perfect!
Your life is about to CHANGE FOREVER!
First of all, if you are a fan of Napoleon Hill, why are you even reading my review? I should be reading yours!! The story behind when and why this hidden manuscript wasn't published until 2011 is very eye opening! This world is in so much turmoil right now, so when you hear the interview with the devil, you're going to think this was written just for what's going on today in 2015...not in the 1930's when it was written. Listen to it with an open mind and HEAR what you NEED to HEAR! There's a reason the devil proudly boasts that he controls 98% of the world population!! Try to discover if he has hooked you, too, and when you find out how to escape his clutches, TAKE THOSE ACTIONS NOW!!! I was so riveted by this interview, I couldn't stop listening... I'll be listening over & over, but a few chapters at a time, so I can take a lot of notes to remind me to examine myself daily! Don't let this day end until you get this book and start listening! It truly was one of the most eye opening books I've ever heard... Napoleon Hill has always been one of my favorite authors because his books speak the truth to me, but this is truly one of his finest books and it wasn't even published until over 40 years after his death. The devil even told him in the interview that if the 'earth bound one' tried to write the book, he would prevent it from being published. It's almost as if Napoleon Hill had already seen this happening. I feel like I went through lasik surgery and can finally see how the devil works to control and deceive us daily. Truly life changing for me!
First things first. Ms. Lechter's Sunday school group discussion questions and comments need to be removed from this reading. Her self important religious injections take you out of the flow. I recommend fast forwarding through these. If you can make it past these intrusions; You'll find a thought provoking Ayn Rand type turn of the century parable. That starts as a black and white argument regarding consciences but then is delightfully backed up with layers of subtlety.
