Publisher's Summary

This new version includes updated statistics and additional quotes from some of the greatest thought leaders, including Nelson Mandela and Buddha. It is written as gender-neutral, and for the first time it contains a women's point of view. Many of these older books focus on saying things such as: "when a man" instead of "when a person". Howroyd believes that words matter and can make a difference.

"Our world has significantly changed since Earl shared his principles in the 1950s, but his message is now more relevant than ever," said Howroyd. "Technology has supported our societies to be more informed and connected. Still, people are more lost, unhappy, and dissatisfied than ever. Young people are despondent, fearful, uncertain, and have lost a measure of hope and excitement about their futures. Sadly, an entire generation has never heard of Earl Nightingale nor "The Strangest Secret". Now they will greatly benefit from this message.

This timeless message about motivation, mindfulness, and character development will impact the world as the gift that keeps on giving." "Our hope is that with Janice's new version of "The Strangest Secret," a new audience will discover Earl Nightingale's original ground-breaking recordings and apply them to their own lives," said Vic Conant, Chairman Nightingale-Conant.

Buyer Beware

I'm a huge fan of Janice Bryant Howroyd, her accomplishments and her speaking ability. But I was in no way prepared for this barely 35 minutes of talk being the sum total of her offering here. The "41 minutes" is topped up by an advertisement for the publisher. Um... yuck? I can get totally jiggy with the old school talk on mindfulness/attention etc. that she gives, but do NOT ask me to spend ~$20 for this. I'm frankly a bit surprised Ms. Howroyd put her name on this. Lovely, serious woman - a true icon of accomplished businesswomen. But what was she doing foisting this overpriced fluff on Audible? My bad - I should have noticed the "41 minutes" mention, and I didn't. Positive thinking customer feels this message was garbled due to frankly greedy and misleeding publisher. No bueno, people.

101 for success, or an infomercial

Contains a lot of basic content for achieving goals - positivity, focus and developing skills. These are fundamentals to anyone that's ran a business or achieved a measure of success. The depth of content otherwise is relatively weak.

The content is backed by a copious, if not excessive, quotes from inspiring figures throughout history.

The audiobook closes with a pitch to buy more publications from the producing company, which sums up the entirety of the narrative pretty effectively.

Disappointing overall.

I follow Janice Bryant Howroyd

I will become a Billionaire so Janice Bryant Howroyd is one of the Billionaires I follow. For good reason her personality is refreshing, she is transparent and sure of who she is and where she wants to go. She has focused on the direction of her goals and Janice isn't easily distracted by outside forces. In my eyes This was a Masterpiece 💖 I will to meet her one day.

Great reminders and food for thought

I like the simple messages instilled in it, and the 30-day challenge. I believe this is a great reminder book that I want to keep in my library and pull out every now and then when I need a good boost. Practical and straightforward. Great for those seeking wisdom and advice that transcends age.

Not Worth the Time

This book has one good sentence: “You are what you think about.” However, her definition of success and how she measures it do not correlate. The idea that the greatest success is to be wealthy is foolish. Equally foolish is the notion that single minded focus on becoming wealthy would guarantee success in the pursuit of it.
