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.

Critic Reviews

"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 [This] previously unpublished Napoleon Hill manuscript....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)

A Must Have

Would you listen to Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil again? Why?

Absolutely. I feel this is even more powerful material than "Think and Grow Rich"

What did you like best about this story?

I believe the format used, a two-person interview with the devil, perfectly illustrates everything that Mr. Hill knew was important in a powerful way.

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

It's as if you're in the room with Napoleon Hill.

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

If I had the time to listen straight through I absolutely would. I listen while driving.

Any additional comments?

If you've read or listened to Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" a bazillion times like I have, this is a must. This book was written in 1938 by the beloved Mr. Hill however his family begged him not to release it. As a result, it was not published until 2011. It's the Law of Attraction and the entire story of how we all have to make the life we want.
Surprisingly, Napoleon Hill had a rough patch in his career and this is his story of how he resolved the issues that paralyzed him personally and professionally.

Amazing except for the editors comments.

This is one of my most favorite books I have listen to in a long time. The readers of the book were fantastic in the story was just amazing. The very disappointing component to the book was the editor’s comments throughout the book. The constant interruptions throughout the book really impacted the overall impact of the book. I wish all of her comments have been left for a pre-or postnarrative.

I didn't care for the editors commentary through the book. Other than that I thought the performance/ nerorating was great. I will listen to it again in the future.

life changing

If you got any value from Think And Grow Rich or Law of Success, then this is the book for you. Especially if you haven't achieved what you've aimed for yet. Knowing what causes failure (temporary setbacks) and thoroughly analyzing it is just as important as knowing what can cause success. Must listen.

insightful

I could not stop listening to this book, one of the best I've found on audible. The performance and information expressed by the "devil" will keep you entertained and will change the way you think about the world. It will really open your mind to greater possibility for yourself. To think this information was known in 1938 is mind blowing, Napoleon Hill has to be one of the greatest independent thinkers of the time. I haven't read think and grow rich or any other Napoleon Hill books but I will be adding them all to my wish list now.
