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 [This] previously unpublished Napoleon Hill manuscript....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)
When i started the book, I listened to the first couple of chapter, but once the actual confession started, I finished the rest of the book in two days. I couldn't put it down. Very good read.
I have been living as a Christian devoutly since 1979 and I find this book to be right on point; the churches, the schools. I realized there was a problem with the schools when my oldest daughter, 40, graduated from College. She has never been the same.
I recommend this book to every living soul. You have to listen over and over and each time will be a new experience, Happy Hunting!
So this was an amazing book, I've learned so much about myself. For me personally everything hit home when he listed the qaulities of a drifter. Definiteness of purpose has given me a new way to view my life. I love this book and will keep it for the years to come as reminder to stay the path.
To me, it started slowly and took off when the actual interview commenced.
Hill's writing is beyond clarifying and really aided in my personal expansion.
While written 70 years ago, it is super applicable today!
