Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Truly an Exceptional in information and narration"

    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.

    Story
    "Without a doubt, one of the BEST of its kind."
    What did you love best about Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil?

    I loved that he elaborated so well on what I've thought my entire life. The validation is priceless.


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

    I would say that it is in a class all its own. Every well known self-help guru has pulled a page from Napoleon Hill and rightfully so, he was extraordinary.


    What about Dan John Miller and Phil Gigante ’s performance did you like?

    I absolutely loved the performances. Very well done in every regard.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The interview with the "Devil." Wonderful...


    Any additional comments?

    If I had to recommend ONE self-help audio book, it would be this shining gem of a book.

    Story
    "Leave Out The Narrarive"
    What made the experience of listening to Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil the most enjoyable?

    Napoleon's books are amazing - simple ams straightforward with actionable steps to success. The narration of Mr. Hills section was awesome. I disliked very much the commentary by Sharon Lechter. The constant interruptions were annoying and broke up the progress and continuity of the book. I nearly refunded it but I wanted to listen to the book as a convenience. If it's updated maybe be selective on what notes of hers to share. I was irritated by her need to translate nearly everything.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The stupid narrator ruined this book for me. Why would they do that?

    "Eye Opener"
    Where does Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In terms of information on the power of thought, it ranks very high... This book isn't for entertainment purposes, and if your getting it for that reason, STOP...


    What did you like best about this story?

    The format. The interview format was exceptional and the flow between the two characters were second to none.


    Did Dan John Miller and Phil Gigante do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The two narrators of this book did an outstanding job, BUT, the interjections by the editor I believe were unnecessary and bothersome... This made the overall performance a 3 instead of 5 stars...


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

    No, but it's a book that should be bookmarked repeatedly and frequently referred to over time...


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent Book, worth adding to your library...

    "Is this a good book? I don't know..."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Take out the editor's inane and useless commentary.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    See Above


    What didn’t you like about Dan John Miller and Phil Gigante ’s performance?

    The narration was fine


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "What most people think but never say"
    If you could sum up Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil in three words, what would they be?

    Inspiring, controversial and Direct


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I liked best about this book was the analyzing of the public school system. I often questioned my lessons in school and how they truly applied to everyday life. This book gets strait to the point on this subject and ask the same questions that me and my piers asked as we trudged through the school system.


    What does Dan John Miller and Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They truly brought life to the characters. Gigante especially gave me chills every time the devil spoke.


    What did you learn from Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil that you would use in your daily life?

    I learned that I need to be concise of what I let my mind dwell on and beware of 'Drifting' into thoughts that don't serve me.


    Any additional comments?

    I would suggest this book to everyone, whether you feel stuck in life or think you perfectly fine where you are. You may be surprised by what you discover about your self.
