This book is a disappointment; the author regurgitates the same old "don't let your life slip away" lines. He presents a few commonly understood "principles" and spends the other 90% of the book talking about himself to illustrate his points. This would be fine if the reader learned something new....not the case here. Save your money.
I learned a lot from this book and recommend it to others.
NO WHERE in the audible review is this book listed as a DEVOUT Christian guide to dealing with difficult people nor are the author's fundamentalist beliefs even mentioned. However, 75% of this book is about God, bible verses and what "Jesus would do" parables. I am a spiritual person and do not mind references to God. Yet, the title and the review are incredibly misleading. Also, there are several instances where the advice provided is based less on research or best-practice therapy and more on the author's belief in "Gods Will for the Family."
I am a huge fan of Brian Tracy; I have learned so much from his books. If you own his products, buying this one is not a good idea. The principles expressed here are the same as those shared in "21 Secrets of Millionaires" or "Eat that Frog: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time." However, if you are new to Brian Tracy's work, this is a good buy.
I highly recommend this book. The author provides a well-researched hypothesis, but is careful not to make statements unsupported by data. In addition, the easy transitions from chapter-to-chapter and great narration made it difficult to turn off at bedtime.
While it is always worth the money to buy zig ziglar's ideas, I could have downloaded most of these public talks from the "Zig Ziglar" Podcast, hosted by Mr. Blake Lindsey on itunes.
I am disappointed with this book because the information is so important, but the narration is terrible (I had to stop listening). In addition, it could have been much better organized.
While much of the information in this book is well known, the author presents it in a new and interesting way. She also employs up-to-date research to support her claims.
I love this book! This is a great audiobook to listen to again and again.
