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.

    "Another great book by Napoleon Hill."
    What made the experience of listening to Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil the most enjoyable?

    I doubt that there are many books that force you to examine life the way this one does, and it is as applicable today as it was when it was written.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I particularly liked the way that Hill meticulously broke-down his idea of what


    What about Dan John Miller and Phil Gigante ’s performance did you like?

    Dan and Phil did very good job with this narration.


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

    The extreme reaction I had to this audio book was not being able to stop listening to it. It has literally altered the way I think, for the better I believe.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my third Napoleon Hill audiobook (the other two were Think And Grow Rich and Napoleon Hill In His Own Words- Rare Recordings), and there is no doubt in my mind that this man was a genius; I plan on reading/listening to all of his books. Pure motivation I tell ya!

    "This Completes the Puzzle!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have read and listened to books/audiobooks similar to this. This brought goosebumps when I first heard the conversation with the Devil. Conversations with God and this book have the same perspective on education, religion and relationships. And its really an eye-opener and I'd say it completed the puzzle. I've heard Conversations with God and now I've heard this audiobook and its another step in a change of my perspective. Thanks for publishing this book. I'm looking forward to more that can be learned from the audiobooks here.

    "Excellent story from Mr. Hill, minus narration"

    I enjoyed the actual story, but the way it is narrated was not my favorite. ** Spoiler Alert ** it is essentially Mr. Hill interviewing people in his imagination. Some of the information was good, but again not the best storytelling in my opinion.

    This was a very interesting delivery on the tools of the Adversary. It was far ahead of its time and I am astounded at the foresight of Napoleon Hill.

    I understand why it was in the Hill Foundation vault for so long. The world just wasn't ready to hear what Mr. Hill had the fortitude to say in this book.

    I feel that I am more aware now of the Devil's strategies in his attacks and am more prepared to face them.

    Thank you Hill Foundation for finally releasing this incredible book!

    "if you are a Hill Fan..... get it!"
    Would you try another book from Napoleon Hill and Sharon Lechter (editor) and/or Dan John Miller and Phil Gigante ?

    Of course I would - Hill is the man behind all the great self help gurus of today. Always good to go to the source


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    yes another thought provoker


    Did Dan John Miller and Phil Gigante do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Absolutely - did so enjoy that way they clearly let you know who was talking even making you feel like you were in the room watching the conversation occur


    Do you think Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Only if it's a part of Hill's writings - i would not want someone to take this original and put their own spin on it. That would be like putting a cityscape behind the Mona Lisa.. it might modernize the lady but it would take away from the original beauty beheld.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a fan of Mr. Hills works this is a must have! As you hear that conversation you mind will drift back to moments in other writings and if your like me you'll get ah-ha moments along the way. Then when you re-read or re-listen to other Hill content you'll look at it from a slightly different (more enlightened) point of view.
