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 [This] previously unpublished Napoleon Hill manuscript....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)
It was great information but Sharon's commentary created a disconnect from the story. I definitely recommend the book however. Just ignore the extra comments.
Really enjoyed the story and Napoleons insights. I wish Shannon would have summarized her thoughts at the end of the book and not interjected her thoughts. Seems counterintuitive to the entire book which is to have independent thought. I felt distracted by her constant repeating and embellishing points.
Still a worthy listen. Would love a version of the book without Sharon's notes to re listen to and have the chance to have my reaction the the story. Not hers.
I believe in all of the principles mentioned here. They are irrefutable and incontestable. It brings every truth about our human behaviors, most important, it shows an describes how to overcome our short comings and how we can totally take control of our lives.
This book is a must read for those who are attempting to improve their lives. It will teach you the importance of the aspect of time and why it is important to manage your schedule.
It will also teach you to yourself, and why you are the most important being in your life. You are the central authority of your life.
It will reinstate the strength you have within you.
Overall, it will give you a new framework for how to see yourself.
That is all. Peace.
