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 [This] previously unpublished Napoleon Hill manuscript....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)
Even though this book was written in 1938, the principles it helps bring light to are just as relevant today as they were back then.
Using the three different voices (one for the editor, one for Napoleon Hill and one for the devil) kept me engaged, and it was hard to turn it off.
Up to this point, the best audiobook I've ever read, both from a content and a performance standpoint.
I love the way the author read and wrote about his culture and how that fits even our culture today (this is culture literacy). Despite the setting of an imaginary interview with the devil which might seem controversial for some, ideas shared in this book are worth exploring further in one's life.
