Earl Nightingale grew up in California during the Great Depression. Because his family was very poor, Earl educated himself in his local library. His main focus: what makes people turn out the way they do, in terms of their wealth, their career achievements and their happiness.

After beginning his career in the US Marines during World War II, Earl was hired as a radio announcer. He eventually became a popular daily broadcaster for CBS. Through his interest in both personal development and audio, he partnered with Lloyd Conant to form the Nightingale-Conant Corporation. At Nightingale-Conant, he focused on recording the ideas and lessons about success that he studied throughout his life.

I have listened at least a dozen times and had to replace twice my hard copies due to lending without returns. You will improve or you are the 80 percent.

I just love this book

There's nothing really dramatic or new in the narrative. It's a lovely 4 hour reminder of lots that you know, and much that you forget. I listen to it often, perhaps once every couple of months. Earl Nightingale has a voice you can hook on to while driving and the audio itself is detailed enough to qualify the content and light enough that you never feel like you're trudging.

Unlike many of the other programmes from NC involving Nightingale, this is light on 'interludes and bridges' and heavy on good quality content. Highly recommended even to those who study this kind of material regularly. The best I took from it was from first listen / read, that his simplification of complex topics gave me the nudge to pass similar to my kids. I feel much more positive about my parenting as a result.
