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 [This] previously unpublished Napoleon Hill manuscript....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

Good story, annoying editor footnotes.

This book would have been so much better without the editors commentary. She really threw off the rhythm of the story. Otherwise it would have probably gotten 5 stars.

Annoying Annotation

The lady coauthor drops into the book all the time to voice her thoughts. I would prefer to hear Mr. Hill alone.

great

fantastic story. Well written and very convicting. It was difficult to listen to from the standpoint that it makes you face some hard truths. But that's what he is about.

The best guru and the worse in one awful package

Napoleon Hill is amazing. (This is an obvious statement.) But whomever published this book decided to edit out much of his original content and add in her own asinine nuggets. I am so angry from the constant interruptions that I find it difficult to focus on the real content of the book.

Imagine you are eating the best crème brûlée you have ever had, except that someone has injected dollops of poo throughout. That is this book.

If you don't believe me, imagine how stupid one would have to be to think they could out Napoleon Hill Napoleon Hill, and then realize that this is the woman whose interruptions you will be constantly subjected to. Please someone release the original manuscript!

Powerful And Timely Interview

This book's content and performance (because it is much more than a reading) is provocative, stimulating, revelatory, and highly informative of the metaphysical and mental aspects of human endeavor. I can see why Hill did not publish it when he completed it. Perhaps we are more ready now to hear this message which has its roots in ancient wisdom.
There is so much we neither know nor practice regarding the depths of our true function and purpose in the course of living. This is an excellent guide for anyone ready to stop drifting.
