outwitting_the_devilCo-Author of one of the longest number one best sellers ever; Rich Dad Poor Dad and author or co-author of 19 other books mainly about personal finance and investing sat down with me to talk about her newest project.

Outwitting The Devil – Napoleon Hill / Sharon L. Lechter

Sharon was asked by the Napoleon Hill Society to take Hill’s manuscript that had been kept secret for over 70 years and update it for the modern reader. Mr. Hill’s wife thought the book to be to provocative and the repercussions she feared from having it released caused her to keep it from being published,

Sharon fully annotates the book with well placed references to what was going on historically during the writing of this book and with thoughtful questions and insights to help readers get through some of the more provocative or complex content.

The book is mainly about Hill’s long conversation with the Devil himself. The real Devil or… Well, it is up to you. The truth is; it doesn’t matter, by using the Devil as the interviewee Hill can tackle the Ying and Yang or both sides of the seven principles of success the book is really about. I believe the book is a must read anytime, but especially during our current economic catastrophe.

It is an important book and and Napoleon Hill fans will love this book as it is full of Hill’s genius. It is also a sort of biography of Hill written by himself, that gets extremely personal and introspective.

I believe this book is a game changer and has the ability to boldly change your present paradigm of thinking. This book will easily become another classic! – JW

    Popular though it is to define success as thriving personally, truly successful people commit heart and soul to inspiring and empowering also others. Sharon Lechter embodies this true definition of success – and simultaneously fills a critical void in the Life Skills educational process. “A game changer indeed!” I look forward to devouring and sharing everything you’ve got! Hugs of gratitude to you both!
