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 [This] previously unpublished Napoleon Hill manuscript....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)
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.
I loved that he elaborated so well on what I've thought my entire life. The validation is priceless.
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.
I absolutely loved the performances. Very well done in every regard.
The interview with the "Devil." Wonderful...
If I had to recommend ONE self-help audio book, it would be this shining gem of a book.

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 something that you really need to take notes on mentally or written.
This helps explain Heaven on earth. Will explain why you do some of the thing you do.
How to conquer the devilish ways easily.
It can change your life for the better and make it much more stress free.
Never live your life by committee...
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...
The format. The interview format was exceptional and the flow between the two characters were second to none.
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...
No, but it's a book that should be bookmarked repeatedly and frequently referred to over time...
Excellent Book, worth adding to your library...
Want to change your life? Want to change your life for GOOD, to be happy, healthy? You need to have an open mind, and if you are honest with yourself... this book will change your life for good!!!! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!! Thanks you to the Napoleon Hill family for releasing this GOLDEN NUGGET to the world. Pamela Nicolay CA.
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.
Inspiring, controversial and Direct
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.
They truly brought life to the characters. Gigante especially gave me chills every time the devil spoke.
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.
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.
Perfect audio book for the content it covers. Unreal insight to how the devil controls us. A MUST read.
