Dr. Orison Swett Marden triumphed over his tragic childhood to become a man who was revered by millions and who became known worldwide as “The Father of the American Success Movement”.
Long before famous motivational speakers – such as Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, and Zig Ziglar – there was Orison Swett Marden.
Marden’s fame grew as a result of his genuine optimism, service to others, and his unique ability to communicate, motivate, and effectively present inspirational stories and powerful life lessons to people of all colors, creeds, and socio-economic backgrounds.
The Life Story of Orison Swett Marden was originally written by Margaret Connolly, Marden’s longtime assistant, in 1925, shortly after his death.
Leadership expert Richard Gorham narrates this wonderful classic in an effort to introduce the late Dr. Marden’s personal story and insightful teachings to a brand-new generation.
