“Outwitting The Devil” by Napoleon Hill is an interesting book on various ways to avoid being overcome by the inevitable tests of life. The information that I personally found informative was the advice given to have a personal purpose and aim regardless of any obstacles that emerge. I admit that there is still so much for me to know in life and part of being unsure about some of the writings shared in the book stem from my life experiences. I have a feeling that Hill did truly believe that his information was coming unadulterated in his interviews with the “devil” but I believe that he may have unintentionally colored some of his writings through a human lense. For instance, on page 133 it is acknowledged that “being good” is un- related to what a person achieves out of life. In other words, there is an implied acknowledgement that those who achieve various successes in their life are frequently judged far from being “good” by other men and women. However, I also believe many of the men and women who transition to the heavenly realms after physical death are sometimes people that were harshly judged by many men and women on earth as not being moral and/or righteous enough to go to heaven. The point that I am trying to make is that the determination of good and bad people is sometimes subjective from the human perspective of some men and women. I believe that Napoleon Hill’s idea of goodness on page 133 is well intentioned but also based on human judgement. Aside from this and other undisclosed caveats, “Outwitting The Devil” by Napoleon Hill is a unique book that highlights various life topics that pertain to many people.
