LP to Publish Self Improvement Classic

Laurenzana Press has obtained the exclusive license to publish the eBook version of Earl Nightingale's The Strangest Secret at the Amazon Kindle store, Apple iStore and other eBook retailers. Nightingale's widow, Diana Nightingale, approved the license as part of her plan to continue “to expand Earl's message to new audiences in any way I can.”

Earl Nightingale originally  wrote and recorded The Strangest Secret in 1956.  It was to be played one Saturday morning to a small group of salesmen during his absence.

When Nightingale returned he learned that the message had made such a positive impact on the men they wanted copies to share with their friends and family.

He arranged with Columbia Records to duplicate the record to meet the many requests.

Much to his surprise, in very little time, without any real advertising or marketing, over a million copies had been sold and he received a Gold Record. The first and only Gold Record ever awarded for a “spoken word” recording.

The recording also became the seedling from which the entire Personal Development Industry grew.

Nightingale's daily radio program, Our Changing World, was the world’s most widely sponsored radio program and was heard daily across the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, the Bahamas, Guam, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, the Armed Forces Radio, and 30 countries overseas.

Nightingale passed away in 1989 and his widow has continued to promote his books, audios and videos to a new generation of users.
