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 [This] previously unpublished Napoleon Hill manuscript....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's only right on if you have Christ as your foremost leader and guiding principle. I believe Napoleon Hill is expressing the importance of having faith, however, it could land on some people as if it's to have faith in themselves as if they were God of their own universe
Considering when this was written, it just goes to show you that wisdom can be timeless. I can imagine Moses giving Joshua this speech when the Lord inspired him to say "be strong and courageous and do not be afraid."
Loved everything about this book except the regular and largely useless interjections of the editor! To restate the lines from the manuscript and then offer questions or suggestions is largely pointless and added little value to the original content. Apart from that this is a very thought provoking book with some interesting concepts and insights.
