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.

Timeless Classic

Over the past 20 years I have probably listened to this close to 30 times. I just found it available on Audible and added it to my library.

Earl Nightingale was an amazing author.

Great classic, a must feel-good listen

I was a little concerned with the old recording at first, but the content was so good, I eventually forgot all about it. :-) so many different topics covered and explained throughout this book, a true timeless masterpiece

The fundamental principles for success

I have a lot of audiobooks and this one always gets the fire inside going. Focus on one goal, think about it the time. You become what you think about and never take a back step. I listen to this book everyday. I recommend it to people who are ready.

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.

The old ones are the best

Great audio delivered by the brilliant Earl Nightingale.
Time honoured principles that are as true and effective today as they were when first recorded.
Lots of new programs still echo much of what Earl shares in this compact gem.
Highly recommended to all.
More importantly, because these ideas can be utilised in so many fields ( testament to their value ), I believe this program would speak to many teenagers today, too. It would be great as a study in secondary schools!

Timeless

When I was a teenager I first listened to Earl Nightingales Lead The Field. The lessons and strategies have served me well in my personal and business life ever since. There are some simple but key messages in this program that can help any one who is prepared to open their mind and apply the great lessons.
