“Napoleon Hill was one of America’s great, influential thinkers who continues to have an enormous impact today.”

Bestselling author Napoleon Hill reveals the seven principles of good that allow us to triumph over obstacles . . . and find success.
Using his legendary ability to get to the root of human potential, Napoleon Hill digs deep to reveal how fear, procrastination, anger, and jealousy prevent us from realizing our personal goals. This long-suppressed parable, once considered too controversial to publish, was written by Hill in 1938 following the publication of his classic bestseller, Think and Grow Rich.
Lechter (coauthor of Rich Dad, Poor Dad) says this 73-year-old manuscript "provides the keys for each of us to outwit the Devil in our own lives" and chart a course for success. Hill (1883 1970) opens with a compelling memoir of how, as a successful writer, he was asked by Andrew Carnegie to interview top tycoons and distill their knowledge into a philosophy of personal achievement. Hill followed his huge 1937 bestseller, Think and Grow Rich, with this book, which has remained unpublished until now because his wife feared a reaction from organized religion to a book consisting of an interview with the Devil and also in light of world events in the late '30s. Wanting to be addressed as "Your Majesty," the Devil claims that though he controls 98% of all people, "My opponent controls all the positive forces of the world, such as love, faith, hope, and optimism." Asked about churches, he responds, "Do you think I am a fool? Who would keep alive the fear of the Devil if I subdued the churches?" As the devilish dialogue progresses, Satanic schemes and tricks are revealed, while Hill's own observations on success, failure, and human behavior emerge. Many readers will find that Hill's writings still remain relevant today.
Whether you believe he actually spoke to the devil or not, the words in this book contain wisdom.
Great book recommend 10/10
Great read! Definitely opened my mind about failure and how to walk through it. Great thing to learn and have while fighting the battles of life.
The annotations are distracting
I bought a book to read the genius, inspired words from Napoleon Hill, but can’t find a copy of this book that doesn’t have annoying annotations. Publish a book for yourself, don’t tarnish the beauty of this publication with your sidebars.
