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 [This] previously unpublished Napoleon Hill manuscript....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)
Take out the editor's inane and useless commentary.
The narration was fine
I am sure that Napoleon Hill had some good points because he always does but I couldn't finish the book due to the insipid need of the editor to interject every few minutes.
I don't know who thought it would be a good idea to let the narrator "improve and clarify" the original work but it was a HORRIBLE idea. I don't think the people who are intelligent enough to choose this audiobook, and take the time to listen, need everything explained to them. Just let the book stand on its own and keep your comments to yourself.
This book completely changed the way I see myself, my surrounding and the people I associate with. This self conflict book brings points that helped me further understand my flaws in the way I look at success and failure. It outlines two characters with two very different views of the world. One being the master manipulator and the other a strong willed character who's purpose is the force the devil character to confess his way of control in the minds of the "simpleminded". The book displays such a strong message that only one's with the necessity to control their owns minds should indulge in this wonderfully write book.
When the Devil broke down his main tricks he uses to control the minds of the "Drifters"
They brought the passion of the manuscript as if one was in the room of the meeting.
I suggest this book for any one who wishes to start the journey of business and wish to control their own minds.
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.
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.
Publish a version of this book that does not contain adlibs. Letcher comments are simpleminded and unorganized.
Enlightening and liberating. I needed something inspirational to get me out of my funk. This book will serve my purpose. I now feel that I have an avenue for change.
this is an excellent way to share the true secrets of how to change your life for the better. the narratives provided by Sharon who is the coauthor of "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" helps you understand the meaning as it relates to Today...Don't let the other reviewers stop you from hearing this treasure. I wonder if the negative reviewers have as a successful life as Napoleon and Sharon does! Don't miss out on this great work!
If you have read Think and grow rich, this volume answers many questions and gives an even greater background of hills mission and the reason for his passion. There is, contained in these words, the key to unlock every man woman and child on earth from the self made prison most occupy. There is not one person living who would not benefit from the wisdom in this book. The problem is, in my opinion, many are not ready to receive it. Are you? It took me nearly a year to finish this book in paperback form, as it seems my mind would make up any excuse to put it down. The audio book format has been a godsend for the reason I was able to force myself to listen to it in its entirety. This may also happen to you, and after listening to the entire thing I'm quite certain I know why. Take the plunge, you will not regret it!
