Publisher's Summary

In this all-new program from Nightingale-Conant, The Greatness Within You, you'll hear Les at his very best - inspiring you to tap in to the incredible potential for achievement, happiness, and influence that is lying dormant, just waiting to be unleashed!

Les learned these lessons firsthand when he had to find his own untapped potential. In elementary school was when he was mistakenly declared "educable mentally retarded". Teachers did not recognize the true potential of little Les Brown. However, he used determination, persistence, and belief in his ability to go beyond being a sanitation worker to unleash a course of amazing achievements, including becoming a broadcast station manager, a political commentator, and a multiterm state representative in Ohio.

Now Les is determined to bring out that same potential for greatness in you!

Good but repetitive

If you have heard The Power of Purpose, then many of the chapters are familiar. Even within this book some of the stories are repetitive.

Technical Difficulties

I loved the material but the volume kept fluctuating and I was listening in my car so I had to keep adjusting the volume while driving.

Story and Motivation - Disjointed Chapters

I haven't listened to motivational speakers before, but I like many of the quotes I've read by Les Brown, so I decided to buy one of his books to listen to. I find him motivational, he is a good speaker, and story teller, but my expectation of the book was that the chapters would have a connected, flowing, and cohesive message. It does not.

Some of the chapters are clearly targeted for people selling to doctors/hospitals and a lot of the chapters are the same or similar stories told over again from a previous chapter (recorded speech).

I will probably re-listen to one or two of the chapters, but this book is really a compilation of several speeches/talks Les Brown gave and stuck in audible book without much rhyme or reason for how it ended up here.

Redundant

I love Les Brown. I love his message. I don’t love this book because every chapter is a repeat of the previous chapter. They’ve collected a series of seminars on the same subject. There are slight variations but the theme and string of stories is exactly the same. You only need listen to the first chapter.

Les is always a delight!

I just love listening to Les. God gave him the power to motivate that's for sure. He shares his own story as well as insights that everyone can relate to while giving you the tools to break free from your own self imposed imprisonment.

Thank you Les!

Inspirational from beginning to the end.

Loves Les Brown, he speaks from the heart.
I love his true life stories the best, it goes to show that we can overcome adversity if we can change our mindsets.
I will listen to this book over and over again, and will recommend it to my team members and anyone else who are willing to change their lives.
