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.

    "Made me think"
    What did you love best about Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil?

    I think he did a great job in capturing the devil's character. It was very close to who I imagine the devil to be. At the same time there were a few things that struck me as incorrect, but those are personal beliefs.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Napoleon Hill and Sharon Lechter (editor) ? Why or why not?

    I enjoy Hill's works. I'm not sure I would do another by Lechter. Maybe it was just the way this one was laid out, but her editorial comments were annoying.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Hill made contact with his other self at the school.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me consider and ponder several things in my own life. What areas am I drifting in?


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book. I listened to it twice as there are many little nuggets in it,

    "The most undervalued audio book of all time"

    That's lofty praise, but it's the truth. The story, the back and forth between Hill and the Devil is all priceless.

    "Interesting audio"

    I enjoyed this audiobook. I'll admit I was a little worried about the reviews made regarding Sharon Lechter's comments. To me they no way distracted from the book and were quite helpful.

    "Now is one of my favorite books!"

    I enjoyed this book because. ... in my humble opinion, is upto the one seeking a total life change, accepting many years of wishing I had had it sooner! the 7 principals really are what can make or break you, and I decided to work them one by one to do my best to master, to my humble ability, each one. thank you for sharing. and I will most likely keep listening and reading it to gain more insight on his real meaning. I'm overjoyed to have the ability to do that! I know that I'm considered to be in a small percentile of people who really have the passion for Napoleon Hill's work, but also to move successfully forward in life, and learn the teachings of someone who had such a powerful message and legacy to leave behind! The other mind, I believe to some extent, I sort of already knew, but learned more than I have the power to change over night. this is s life long process, and I choose to change and alter my mindset to better serve myself, my family, but better yet, those who need and ask for help! thank you Napoleon for your time. your effort has me everlasting moved to change!
