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.

A Good Book Spoiled by the Incessant Interruption

While I was excited to listen to this book, as I enjoyed Think and Grow Rich, I was deeply disappointed in the presentation. The flow of the original ideas by the author was continually interrupted with asides and be-musings of the editor. NO KIDDING, there were parts where 2 minutes of excerpt were followed by 2 minutes of anecdotes from the editor's personal life and various "what-ifs" and "have you evers". On and on it went. I kept thinking, surely the editor (Sharon Lechter) would eventually keep quiet and let the book stand on its own. Sadly, she didn't. Get the book and skip the the sideshow. It was like watching a movie with a friend who just won't shut up. I'm sure she meant well and is a fine person, but this should be about the author and not the editor.
