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.

    "Power in Simplicity Hills Ideas Transcends Decades"

    I listened to this book twice in one week. Profound information in a simple format. Don't be put off by the title. The name "devil" is a label for the negative forces. This book is filled with ideas to help you become proactive and positive right now. Read it! Listen to it! Do Both I just purchased a print version but the narration is AWESOME. Love Phil Gigante

    Story
    "Gaining a deeper understanding of success"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil to be better than the print version?

    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.


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

    Think and Grow Rich - they are companions.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    A must read if you have read Think and Grow Rich.

    "Thanks for the heads up!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil?

    Most of the devil's dialogue was memorable, it feels like peeping on a conspirator who is plotting against you.


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

    Perfect integration.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Think! Own your mind.

    Story
    "Interruptions = sinful Loosely Organized Opinions"
    Would you try another book from Napoleon Hill and Sharon Lechter (editor) and/or Dan John Miller and Phil Gigante ?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Publish a version of this book that does not contain adlibs. Letcher comments are simpleminded and unorganized.

    "Napoleon goes from Motivator to Prophet!"
    What made the experience of listening to Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil the most enjoyable?

    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.

    "Worth every penny!"
    Where does Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is my first audio book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No because the content requires some reflexion at times.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
