    Zig Ziglar, one of the nation's greatest motivators, provides words of hope and encouragement that will equip readers to successfully face daily challenges. It has been said that when the going gets tough, the hopeful keep going. That's because hope is the great activator, in other words, people with it take action to realize their goals. But many times the daily grind can be a hope-killer, so Zig Ziglar offers a solution!

    "Love Ziglar, Just Not This Book"
    Overall

    I really love Zig Ziglar's material; however, this one falls flat. It sounds like someone knocked the wind out of him. It's monotonous and doesn't present anything new. I would highly recommend other Ziglar works; just not this one.

    Would you try another book from Jason Scotts and/or Kirk Hanley?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Unfortunately, this audiobook is basicallly worthless. It only cost ~$2 but I want it back. 45 minutes = short. 70 tips include using rounding to truncate off decimals and 80 is very close to 79. Says that the Internet is a good resource. It sounds like this is someone's "post-college" try to make a little money writing a "booklet".

    Catch-22 is set in the closing months of World War II, in an American bomber squadron on a small island off Italy. Its hero is a bombardier named Yossarian, who is frantic and furious because thousands of people he hasn't even met keep trying to kill him. (He has decided to live forever, even if he has to die in the attempt.)

    Phil says: "Phenominal Reading - Story and Damn Funny"
    "Terrible story- ridiculous"

    What disappointed you about Catch-22?

    One of the worst stories I've heard. It couldn't end soon enough. Maybe an abridged version would be tolerable.

    Jon Stewart, host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning The Daily Show, and his coterie of patriots deliver a hilarious look at American government.

    Agree with the others - Love Stewart on TV, but this book is Boring!
