But Amazon said the book was written by Earl Nightingale, one of my earliest radio heroes from the 1950s, so I said, "What the heck? It's less than a buck. I can't go wrong."
Ah, but the book is NOT by Earl Nightingale. According to page 2, the book is "edited and with introduction by Dr. Robert C. Worstell, from the works of Earl Nightingale." This book contains roughly 30 essays by Nightingale, with additions, changes, and subtractions by Worstell.
And there's the problem. When I want to read works by a master like Nightingale, I don't want to read a product that has the master's work intermingled with the thoughts and style of some editor--particularly when there's no clear indication of where the master leaves off and the editor begins.
Don't get me wrong. Worstell may be a good writer. But Nightingale is a GREAT writer. Too often, reading this book, I'd say, "That does NOT sound like something Nightingale would say." And I'd stop, look up the original on the Internet, and say, "I thought so."
Many of these essays by Earl Nightingale are available online, often at no cost. Look them up. Read the originals. Be thrilled by the phrasing, the choice of words, and the great ideas presented by Earl Nightingale. Sure, some of his language is a little old-fashioned. Shucks, much of his work was written half a century ago, back when language was not customarily gender-inclusive. But do you really need some editor to change "all mankind" to "all humans" for you, so you won't be offended? I hope not.
By the way, this is the same Robert Worstell who publishes a book called, "Just Another Publicity Excuse - How to Publish Your (Kindle) Book for Shameless Self-Promotion and Profit (A Parody)"
His three main points in THAT book are:
1. How to write a book - real quick, shallow, ghost-written.
2. How to publish your book - hire someone who does cheap kindle books, putting their name on the cover as payment.
3. How to sell a book online - using your devoted, Kool-Aid-drinking fan-base to suck-up and give you fake 5-star reviews without having read the book.
Don't waste your time on "How to Change Your Life in 30 Seconds."
On the other hand, if you'd like to look up Nightingale's essays online, here are the chapter titles from Worstell's compilation (I can't even tell which are actually essays by Nightingale and which are pieces Worstell got from someplace):

Enjoy! Learn! And GROW!
So well written and enjoyable to read. I have told many people about this book and will continue to do so. This is a book I will be re-reading for years to come. If you are ready to achieve your dreams, goals and desires - read this book and you will be on your way!!
This book did encourage and motivate me and is worth the reading, despite these few flaws.
Still a good, quick read that I recommend. If anything, you'll get a refresher course and quick reference from the other books of this type you may have read in the past. If not, then it'll all be new to you.
