I have seen these principles working in my life. This short version on Think and Grow Rich is great because it covers all. I would recommend it to all people seeking change in any area of life.
I love the tone and presence of Earls voice. I know he is old fashioned as this is an old recording but there is something comforting and relaxing about this which allows the knowledge to seep in effortlessly
This is a quick 45 minute condensed version of the book. Beautifully read, a fantastic recap of the 13 principles. Short enough to listen morning and night, giving you positivity to continue your quest.
If you've read the whole book this is a great quick snapshot of the basic principles. Good all rounder A
""Unabridged" Doesn't Mean "49-Minute Infomercial For the Book""
Maybe I didn't read carefully, but when I saw "Earl Nightingale Reads Think and Grow Rich" with UNABRIDGED in capital letters, I thought I was getting an unabridged recording of the book. No: this is basically an infomercial for the book. Do not buy.
While this was great, I thought I was buying the full book? :( I don't even understand what this is?
This is only an intro to the book. I ended up having to buy another version that actually contained the book
If you have have already read Napoleon Hill material this is just a refresher. If you are new to the materail this is a great introduction but by no means a substitute for the entire text.
Really like how Think & Grow Rich was summarized...great introduction if wondering what all the accolades are about.
Very old fashioned business like...wonderfully vintage.
"A good distillation of Think and Grow Rich"
I find Earl Nightingale's voice very easy to to listen too.
I would not change a thing.
I found Earls performance to commensurate with his the other narrations.
That Ideas are things. Ideas have a large influence on our circumstances. Also, we have the power and responsibility to have control over our thoughts.
"Excellent summary of the original."
It is an excellent recap of the original. Great if you want to hit the main points frequently. I found the narrators voice to be a bit rough, but that is just personal taste.
"A great classic"
I haven't read the print version yet, but this is really a good audio condensation of the book, as Earl puts the essential points in prospective.
It's a clear and precise vision how to pave the road ahead.
He brings his own comments as one of the original coaches from the business coaching industry.
Yes, it's flowing and you don't see time passes as the speech is so fascinating.
A must buy if you don't have the time to lockup and read the print book at home for three days.
"OLD but always appicable."
That he summarized the book and gave you the key points. And I love Earl Nightingale's voice.
STEP by STEP of what you need to do.
SET goals and write them down and review them daily.
