“Napoleon Hill was one of America’s great, influential thinkers who continues to have an enormous impact today. This previously unpublished manuscript, ably edited and annotated by Sharon Lechter, reveals how fear and lack of trust can prevent you from achieving success. Free markets rely on free people and trust.” —Steve Forbes, editor-in-chief of Forbes magazine
“What a perfect time for this masterpiece to be published! Sharon Lechter’s notes bring into focus the real genius behind Outwitting the Devil and help us conquer fears that bedevil our success.” —Harvey Mackay, author of the#1 New York Times bestseller Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive
“Hill’s teachings are most often associated, in the minds of his modern-day readers, with prosperity, which translates as money in one’s individual coffers. But truth be told, he has shared with the world his wisdom of ‘how-to-live principles.’” —Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Spiritual Liberation: Fulfilling Your Soul’s Potentialand featured in the film and book The Secret

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.
