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.

I believe that the audio edition gives you a different way in which to learn the principles taught in the book, but not necessarily better. This book, along with Think and Grow Rich, are textbooks on life and need to be reviewed multiple times to get everything there is to get from them. The printed word can be marked, annotated, and highlighted for later review while the audio book can be listened to in the car, while exercising, etc.
Think and Grow Rich - they are companions.
This book, along with Think and Grow Rich, allows one to know that they can and will succeed if they have a great enough Desire, Faith, Determination, and Persistence.
A must read if you have read Think and Grow Rich.
I would definitely recommend this book. The way it touches us one point or another helps to enlighten some overlooked areas we may be ignoring for comfort.
Most of the devil's dialogue was memorable, it feels like peeping on a conspirator who is plotting against you.
Think! Own your mind.
No. I will never buy anything associated with Sharon Lechter. Her opertunitistic and severly irritating interruptions on each passage and sub-passage greatly detracts from this great art. Even after the Devil makes it clear that "loosely organized opinions" are nothing more than egotistical expressions and one of the greatest sins of mankind, she still continues to frequently interrupt Napoleon's writings with irrelivant conservative stream of consiousensess muddled ideas. Not only was this book from Napoleon Hill blocked from being published by his family for nearly 80 years, at its publishing, a conservative, unintellectual and religious spin on Hill's amazing work is attempted through Lechter's exasperating interludes. Brilliance Audio, please publish a version of this book that does not require the audience to push the fast-forward button every 3-4 minutes.
Publish a version of this book that does not contain adlibs. Letcher comments are simpleminded and unorganized.

Where ever there is a lack of good, good will rise up against it!
This book has some things most audio books don't have, great story and narration plus the editor chiming in to make the experience crystal clear. Hill's insight into human nature is astounding and the idea of getting the devil to confess is intriguing. This is a must for those who have heard or have ever been asked to listen to Napoleon Hill. I guarantee you will enjoy it and learn from it.
This is my first audio book.
No because the content requires some reflexion at times.
Awesome content! A 'must' for everyone who is familiar with Think & Grow Rich. Sharon Lechtor's editorial comments are sometimes annoying but useful for the most part. Dialog between Mr. Earthbound and the Devil feels forced at times.
Yes but I havent read the print
Think and Grow Rich - similar in nature from a unique slant
This book is definitely a must buy - must read. Napolean Hill talks about things (and backs it up with facts) that we had overlooked in the past; the education system and the church.
I loved it so much, that I am going to buy the hard copy!
This is the more complete and precise book I've ever seen about all the keys to unlock your prisons.
Each sentence is important.
He gives directly without detour the exact circumstances that keep you out of the game.
Both, Hill and the devil.
At the end he gives the entire key within one phrase. You must listen to the entire book prior to understanding that phrase. After that you'll know exactly how to get free.
No film could be done with this book.
Entertaining, empowering, informative
I have never listened to Dan John Miller or Phil Gigante before this book. However, I enjoyed their performance. It was a vivid and authentic, well-performed, single-act play.
In the book, prior to the conversation with the devil, Hill has one with his "other self" when the "other self" makes the statement, "You won't be happy unless you are helping others." I have found that statement to be a truth that has changed my life every day since reading the book. Avoiding "drifting," which means to let distractions rule you, is another life-changing concept, but also a life-long pursuit. I am now very aware of this concept and believe it has power for every part of life.
There are instances when the Editor's comments were good summaries of the content and others when she is sharing her views. You can fast forward through the comments if you don't agree with them, but continue to listen to the book. I am very grateful to the Editor and Audible for bringing to me this book.
