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.

    "TOOK MY BREATH AWAY"
    What did you love best about Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil?

    His interview with the devil was RIVETING!!


    What other book might you compare Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil to and why?

    This book is ONE OF A KIND!!


    What does Dan John Miller and Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Their voices really added to the experience! The voice of the devil was perfect!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Your life is about to CHANGE FOREVER!


    Any additional comments?

    First of all, if you are a fan of Napoleon Hill, why are you even reading my review? I should be reading yours!! The story behind when and why this hidden manuscript wasn't published until 2011 is very eye opening! This world is in so much turmoil right now, so when you hear the interview with the devil, you're going to think this was written just for what's going on today in 2015...not in the 1930's when it was written. Listen to it with an open mind and HEAR what you NEED to HEAR! There's a reason the devil proudly boasts that he controls 98% of the world population!! Try to discover if he has hooked you, too, and when you find out how to escape his clutches, TAKE THOSE ACTIONS NOW!!! I was so riveted by this interview, I couldn't stop listening... I'll be listening over & over, but a few chapters at a time, so I can take a lot of notes to remind me to examine myself daily! Don't let this day end until you get this book and start listening! It truly was one of the most eye opening books I've ever heard... Napoleon Hill has always been one of my favorite authors because his books speak the truth to me, but this is truly one of his finest books and it wasn't even published until over 40 years after his death. The devil even told him in the interview that if the 'earth bound one' tried to write the book, he would prevent it from being published. It's almost as if Napoleon Hill had already seen this happening. I feel like I went through lasik surgery and can finally see how the devil works to control and deceive us daily. Truly life changing for me!

    Story
    "Another good book edited to death"

    First things first. Ms. Lechter's Sunday school group discussion questions and comments need to be removed from this reading. Her self important religious injections take you out of the flow. I recommend fast forwarding through these. If you can make it past these intrusions; You'll find a thought provoking Ayn Rand type turn of the century parable. That starts as a black and white argument regarding consciences but then is delightfully backed up with layers of subtlety.
