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.
