    "Inspirational"

    I usually don't write reviews but this program is inspirational. A real awaking experience to the truth that you can be and do what you want in life if your heart is really in it and you have the necessary mental attitude. It takes you on a journey through several volumes which really make you question what you really want out of life. listened through and I'm going to listen again 10 stars!

    "The goto best self help book out there!"

    I rarely write reviews however I was a little skeptical and curious about this book. I just got done listening to it and I'm astonished on how good this audio book was! Earl Nightingale narrating it was the icing on the cake :) I've read and listened to many authors on these self help/progressive topics and now I know where it all came from... The original self help guru and author Mr. Earl Nightingale! I love it! thank you!

    "An apt title"
    Would you listen to The Essence of Success again? Why?

    Yes. This book has so much in the way of treasure. I keep going back over it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Essence of Success?

    Yes, all of it... I'm defiantly a fan.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    There really is too many to list. Just start from the beginning. I think most people will find most of the content very useful.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?


    It felt as though I was listening to someone who embodied integrity and honour. Such correctness made me want to stand upright. There was also the relaxed soothing delivery in the authors voice.

    "outdated"
    What disappointed you about The Essence of Success?

    Long-winded, tedious way of saying think positive.


    What could Earl Nightingale have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Offered more concrete advice with exercises.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Reader was good but content empty. Very dissatisfying.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Essence of Success?

    I wouldn't have commissioned this.


    Any additional comments?

    refund please.
