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....

'Screwtape Letters' meets 'Think & Grow Rich.'
I enjoyed the theological and philosophical insights into personal achievement and success through the archetype of The Devil. The book also relates to Henry David Thoreau's 'Walden' and Ralph Waldo Emerson's 'Self Reliance' in it's introspective focus and distrust of society's institutions including the educational establishment and organized religion.

If you are interested in exploring your faith in Christ, I would recommend C. S. Lewis' 'Screwtape Letters.' If you are interested in questioning the assumptions of society, I would recommend Thoreau's 'Walden' and Emerson's 'Self Reliance.' If you are interested in personal achievement, check out Napoleon Hill's "Think & Grow Rich' and Mark Manson's 'The Art of Not Giving a ****'
