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 [This] previously unpublished Napoleon Hill manuscript....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)
I wish I could return it to get my credit back, but audible won't let me.
The inane commentary by the editor is both distracting and insulting to the listener's intelligence.
We don't need to have it explained to us. Just let the book stand on it's own merits.
I am truly blessed by the treasure I've just par took. A wealth of knowledge, guidance, to say the least. Which is life changing. I will never be the same because my feel freed to walk in the dominion that God originally set man in position for. We have reason to fear any more. This information is timeless and should be in everyone's library who seek to live their lives to its fullest
I agree with many of the take-always of this book: live with purpose, power of thought, surround yourself with positive associations, and turn adversity into an opportunity. As a survivor of adversity and choosing to see the upside, I share some of the same messages in my books: When All Balls Drop & With New Eyes.
However, this was very long-winded. In fact, the dialogue between Hill & the Devil was very repetitive. Although I enjoyed hearing the editor's comments, I think it interrupted the story for me. I would suggest a shorter version and editorial add-ins less frequently.
In staying with the power of thought, here's to looking up!
The information was for everyone and I really enjoyed the idea of the interview. But some of the story (not the wisdom) seemed kind of off which is why I have the story 4 stars. Enjoy and God bless :-)
The value a reader can experience from this book will be measured by applying the knowledge within for personal self improvement.
The content is excellent. The more people who internalize these concepts, the better our lives, workplaces and world would be. Being familiar with Napoleon Hill, I found Sharon's interruptions annoying but do understand that for the mass of readers she felt it necessary to translate to today's environment and remind listeners of his times. Well worth your time to listen to this book. Please do
This is indeed the greatest piece of literature next to the bible itself that I've ever read/listened to!! When you mix this with the bible....the explosion of change is endless! Thank you Mr. Napoleon Hill and family!

This is a powerful and completely relatable book no matter the decade.
This was written in the 30's and it's completely current here in 2015-2016.
I was determined to finish this book because of the reviews I read about how transforming the information was (it was pretty good), but I had to listen to it just a little bit at a time because the narration was choppy.
