After having read this book some time ago, then listening to it, I can say that HEARING Mr Ziglar deliver this information is abundantly more effective. The book was excellent, but the ability to hear his passion, sense of humor, and timing of delivery made the presentation come to life and gave true meaning to the content! I listened while doing other work -- multitasking -- and found that the tasks at hand were finished sooner, and with more attention to detail and a sense of purpose than if I had not been listening.
There are dozens of stories in this "story"! Mr. Ziglar brings to life people I'm familiar with (Mark Twain, Napolean Hill, Earl Nightingale, etc.) and people I've never heard of, simply by telling how they act and react to daily and life challenge. The book is a book of lectures, but the stories and characters he interlaces with his information make it "warm and personal".
Mr. Ziglar is a brilliant, dynamic, devoted motivationalist ... who just happens to be one of the most entertaining communicators alive! If anyone else were to have tried to "narrate" this book, it would not have worked!
You could listen to this book in one sitting, but it is designed in such a way that 15 minutes at a time will still feed you all the encouragement and enthusiasm you'll need for an entire day!
This is an extremely long listen, but well worth it. So much of what we "know" of FDR and Eleanor is propoganda and myth. This is nit a "tell all", but a sincere look at the realities that were the well-lived lives of this amazing couple, who both had a hand in changing how Americans think, work, and play.
