When Napoleon Hill (1883-1970) wrote Outwitting the Devil in 1938, he had just published Think and Grow Rich, a self-help primer that was destined to become one of the bestselling books of all time. Caught up in the bustle of fame, Hill never published this standalone follow-up, yielding to the objections of friends that the text was too controversial. Now this long-suppressed tome of self-improvement is available for the first time. Outwitting the Devil is a parable about how our search for self-fulfillment is undermined by our darker side and, more importantly, how we can struggle and win against negative habits and unwarranted fears. To this powerful work, motivational author Sharon Lechter (Rich Dad, Poor Dad; Three Feet from Gold) has added useful annotations.
