I tried so hard to like this, I really did. Too many people have said nice things about Zig Ziglar for me to have not been tempted to try one of his books. I opted for this audiobook.
Where do I begin? He has a heavy 'southern priest' style of talking that's somewhat condescending and very old fashioned. I found it difficult to keep focused, and this wasn't helped by his frequent attempts at humor with his audience. Bad, bad grandfather humor. This all intertwined with inappropriate religious references and shamelessly feeding on the crowd for affirmation of the points he's making.
Despite the material originating from pre-Internet days, I'm sure he has lots of good things to say but I simply cannot bring myself beyond his old world delivery and style.
I have a webinar to 800 people later today and was looking for a quick primer for the do's and do nots of presenting to a large audience. This short audiobook is brief enough to get across the main points of presenting without digging too deep into any specific topic.
Some of the references are a little outdated (e.g. transparencies as a presenting tool), though this doesn't distract from conveying what you should be thinking about in preparation for presenting to an audience.
A fantastic primer for carrying out presentations.
