Book Description

Six short and simple words.

They are the "strangest secret."

There are more than six hundred thousand words in the English language.

And yet just six words...six short and simple words explain:

* How one person with identical skills can earn hundreds of thousands and even millions more than another

* How some people shoot to the top of the company while others are fired

* Why some people live happy productive lives while people of identical upbringings and education stumble from failure to failure

* Why some seem to achieve goals almost effortlessly while most can't seem to get on track

* Why some marriages flourish while others end early

In 1956 Earl Nightingale shared these six words with the world in a recording he called The Strangest Secret. When it was released, it rocked the consciousness of the 1950′s.

His recording, without any advertising or formal marketing, sold over a million albums and became the first (and only) spoken word message to win a Gold Record. It transformed lives and virtually created a new industry --- the modern day personal development/self help industry.

In the printed word, as an eBook, the incredible words and wisdom of Earl Nightingale may be even more powerful.

But either way, The Strangest Secret is indeed the single biggest secret to success that mankind has ever discovered.

** Includes a Nightingale bonus book “How To Create Million Dollar Ideas.”

** Includes an offer for FREE classic audio recordings of Earl Nightingale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to the Nightingale's voice. 10 Dec. 2011
By Bury70
Format:Audio CD
I had already become interested in motivational books and CD's before I purchased this set off Amazon; I had heard some of Earl Nightingale's recordings on Youtube but wanted to hear more. Nightingale explains how he came into the self development business; searching for the answer to a rewarding, more fulfilling life. He found the first clue in Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich; he further lays out a simple, though not easy (as we have to think), formula to work out what you want and how to go about getting it.
The set of six audio CD's come individually walleted in a ring-bound, snap-shut plastic box; in Nightingale's gravel-voiced tones, he covers such topics as the role of the entrepreneur, river people and goal people and what sucess isn't. I listen to it on a regular basis and still, after nearly three years of having the set, I still hear something unique that stands out. The best time, I have personally found, to listen to these recordings is when I am doing what someone once described as "hands busy, mind free" time; when I am walking somewhere or doing the dishes or cooking etc. The information in this pack has helped me enormously; partly from being kept motivated on the course I am on, but also stretching my capabilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Motivational CD I have ever bought 26 Aug. 2007
By Asuarah
Format:Audio CD
I'm a self-employed salesman and need to motivate myself daily to cope with the inevitable rejections. I'm therefore a great fan of motivational stuff. The Strangest Secret is the best I have ever invested in. These six CDS are purely inspirational. Earl dissects the secrets of success. He quotes from numerous top Philosophers and Thinkers, which demonstrates his quality and magnitude of research. This stuff is purely Gold Mine. He challenges you to work hard by setting Goals for yourself and makes it quite clearly that success is possible when you believe and work towards your goals. These CDs should be standard material for schools and colleges because it will open minds at a very early age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Earl Nightingale 25 July 2010
By H. S. Hallam VINE VOICE
Excellent vintage Earl Nightingale. Enables one to highlight and make notes of this key secret to success.

As much as I love listening to him on audio I think one gains more from the book.

Should be read in conjunction with the ORIGINAL Joe Karbo's "The Lazy Man's Way to Riches".
