Using his legendary ability to get to the root of human potential, Napoleon Hill digs deep to identify the greatest obstacles we face in reaching personal goals: fear, procrastination, anger, and jealousy, as tools of the Devil. These hidden methods of control can lead us to ruin, and Hill reveals the seven principles of good that will allow us to triumph over them and succeed.
Annotated and edited for a contemporary audience by Rich Dad, Poor Dad and Three Feet from Gold co-author Sharon Lechter, this book is profound, powerful, resonant, and rich with insight.

It blew my mind completely and I feel it has changed the way I see things. Many of you will wonder why he choses to interview the devil rather than God and there is a brilliant reason behind it (the which many of you will see as "controversial"). You see, the devil is the one that everyone fears through life and in the prospect of death and I will assure you after you read this book and take a good look around your life and surroundings, you will not only find that "the devil" (in the sense of corruption withing humanity) is so minuscule and easy to defeat but you will also find a great sense of empowerment that will draw you closer to God, if you are a believer like me.
The amazing facts Hill talks about in this book are so deep in tune with our modern science and society that it really makes you question how in the world he came to the knowledge of such information in his time period. I recommend this book 1000 times and I will surely embrace his principles and apply them to my daily life.
It is amazing that this book was written over 70 years ago, hidden until 2011, and is still very valid today. The points he brings up about the education system, how children are being primed for failure, and the two major causes of malaise in a person's life: the Law of Hypnotic Rhythm and habit of "drifting"... all very pertinent to today's society. Napoleon states that only one that is in complete control of his mind, either under his own power or better yet within a "mastermind", can defeat the Devil's work. He even goes into divulging, through the Devil's words, how he would take over a powerful country like America (via electing a dictator) and destroying it from within through division.
All it takes for evil to prevail is enough good people to do nothing.
Truly revolutionary thinking.The organization is a little lacking. If read as a series of "let me get this straight..." over a period of days or weeks of interviewing, it's reasonable. If you read it as a book, as if it's meant to clearly deliver a straightforward message, you might be disappointed. Sharon Lechter might not be the best person to act as commentator. Her other work is good and respectable with Robert Kiyosaki. Just not the right spot for her.
