Outwitting the Devil is a spectacular book by Napoleon Hill.

Today I want to share with you the Sequel to the best selling success book of all time, ‘Think and Grow Rich’.

If you haven’t read Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill I highly recommend it. In my opinion it should be required reading for any entrepreneur or small business owner.

While Think and Grow Rich sets the ground work… Outwitting the Devil is about understanding how to create your own life and truly outwit the Devil.

Outwitting the Devil Review

In 1938 just after the publication of his all time bestseller, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill reveals that he broke the Devil’s Code, forcing him to confess his secrets. The resulting manuscript — Outwitting the Devil — proved so controversial, it was hidden for over 70 years.

Sharon Lector, co-author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, 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 te greatest obstacles we face in reach 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.

Once I started reading this book I honestly couldn’t put it down. It was powerful, insightful, and allowed me to really choose how my day, week, live, business, love life, and everything around me goes. I feel empowered in my life.

The Books Layout

This book begins with an introduction and even a bit of history of how this book came to be. It was in Napoleon’s darkest times that this book was conceived and then later given life to.

After that it dives into a Q&A session with the Devil and Hill.

There is some debate whether this is truth or fiction and I leave that up to you to discover.

I will say this, “Learning the secrets to freedom and success are worth every minute spent reading this book.”

Enjoy this book! Do do recommend getting the book in physical format because I found myself highlight and writing notes in the book. This will be one book you want to go back to and read again. It’s that good!

      Interesting the book was so controversial that it went underground. I’ve read “Think And Grow Rich.” As mentioned in one of the comments, Doubt really is a debilitating culprit we all deal with, but best to learn strategies to become stronger than our doubt!

      Great post and review. I may need to add the book to my “to read” list.

      • Katrina

        I really enjoyed this book. Easy to read and you might not be able to put it down. 🙂 ~Katrina

      I recall reading the book many years ago and my take away was that the Devil had won as soon as doubt was created in our mind.
      I doubt that I still have the book since I am at a stage of getting rid of things I have collected over the first 60 years of my life. I hope that it will not take me all of the remaining 60 years.

        It was doubt and what the Devil calls ‘drifting’, letting life happen to you instead of creating purpose and living your life. Good memory!

    • Heidi Albertson

      Very intriguing- the title alone – I would love to outwit the devil!! justorDered it!

      • Katrina

        Hey Heidi! It might be one we add to our book club in the future. I would recommend reading or re-reading Think & Grow Rich first. 🙂

      I’m intrigued. I have read Think and Grow Rich a long time ago. I was quite impressed by it. I think I’ve read You Can Work Your Own Miracles. I haven’t heard of Outwitting the Devil. I shall have to look for it. Thanks for the notice.

      • Katrina

        Hey Lily! I’ve been told that I should be reading Think & Grow Rich at least once a year because we grow each year and read something different in the book each time we read it. I haven’t read ‘You Can Work Your Own Miracles’ and that one has me intrigued. Thank you for taking the time to read my post! See you in the blog challenge.

      Hi Chef. This book is on my list to order next. I need to go back to Think and Grow Rich and start it again.

      • Katrina

        I would recommend going back and re-reading Think and Grow Rich first. It is worth the read. 🙂 ~Katrina

    • Karin

      This book I think was better than Think And Grow Rich. I couldn’t put it down!
