Publisher's Summary

"If you understand completely what I am going to tell you, from this moment on, your life will never be the same again." -Earl Nightingale

This amazing message was first played for a group of salespeople at Earl Nightingale's insurance agency. They were utterly electrified. Word of it spread like wildfire, and everyone who heard it was positively ignited into action. Requests for a recording of the message came pouring in - thousands of requests per week. Within no time, more than 200,000 people had called, written, or just walked right into Earl's office to request a copy. As years went by, that number soared above 1,000,000. Today, more than 40 years later, The Strangest Secret remains one of the most powerful and influential messages ever recorded. It continues to transform the lives of everyone who hears and heeds it.

Greatness

I enjoyed listening to these older materials. The concepts are the same of what's needed in order to be successful in business. Putting the customers and employees first or people in general is the key to success in any business.

Very disappointing

The actual reading of the book lasts about 30 minutes and is interesting. However, the remaining time is a very boring interview basically promoting the company.

thought it was just the strangest secret

I was hoping for the original version of Earl's narrative but ended up with more. I've listened to the ads and the interview but really prefer the original audio. Thank goodness I can just stop the audio at the end of chapter 1 and go back to the beginning. The interview was good but not what I expected. if I'd known that it was more than just Earl's original The Strangest Secret audio I wouldn't have bought it. oh well.

Very necessary for anyone

I am a business owner, just had a stroke 8 months ago. Have come to realize that I was just going thru the motions living a decent life. This second chance I got is a blessing. Just by listening to this already have a road map to a greater life for everyone in our company and families.

Classic Recording for Motivation and Success

The first 30 minutes are superb. There is a short middle section about the company that created the recording and then the third part is an interview that is excellent as well. The third part is very different than the first part but you can really hear a lot of wisdom in that excellent interview. For the cost and the time commitment for this short recording, the investment returns should be exponential if you are a person who truly is willing to take action to achieve your definition of success.

But this NOW!

In my opinion, this is still one of the best. My advice would be to listen carefully and listen often.

Hello hidden sales pitch

Actual content from from Earl Nightingale excellent. Second part which is not Nightingale does not belong with content. Let down because this book was not cheap. Don't waste your money.

Excellent

So many don't realize how our own inner thoughts effect our daily lives and our business, not to mention the way we treat our employees who build our companies for us. My goal to be a leader that glorifies everything the staff does....because I have been that staff and if they aren't taken care of and happy your business can't strive.
