    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Zig Ziglar is from a previous generation but everything he talks about it still relevant.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Stay Motivated?

    The analogies and stories. They are always a connection point for me.


    Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, and they are all excellent.


    Any additional comments?

    Ziglar books are ok, but the audio is where Zig shines. His delivery, his sense of humor, his politeness, and his respect for people really comes across.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Creative Thinker's Toolkit to be better than the print version?

    N/A


    Did Professor Gerard Puccio do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    This question does not really apply. However I would point out that the narrative was a little tough to listen to for long periods. It's 24 lectures and the narrative starts sounding like William Shatner is delivering it. The pauses and drawn out words were tough to take.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Overall good lectures. Very comprehensive. I think the delivery was the downside for me.

    What did you love best about Lifelong Health: Achieving Optimum Well-Being at Any Age?

    Health, Diet, and Exercise advice is out there in abundance. Knowing what is believable or not is always tough. Dr. Goodman's lecture was clear, to the point, and makes perfect sense.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very comprehensive and practical.


    What about Dr. Anthony A. Goodman’s performance did you like?

    Easy to listen to, it's a long lecture, but never got old.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    "Eat mostly plants, and not too much" is a great quote he used in the lecture.


    Any additional comments?

    If you step back from this subject in general, it's all about common sense and moderation. Eat wholesome, exercise more, get plenty of rest. But the how's and why's are clearly presented with common sense approach to achieving all of this. Everything from prostate exam options to menopause and children's health or allergies. Loved it!

    Eric Thomas is rising to national prominence by delivering a high energy message that tells youth through first hand experience how to live up to their full potential and greatness and by breaking the cycles of crime, hopelessness and despair that many face daily. Known for his engagingly personal approach, his messages are both dynamic & inspiring. When coupled with his own cycle-breaking experience, his blunt essays on reality and remarkable ability to reach even the most jaded of minds.

    Would you try another book from Eric Thomas and/or Charles Arrington and Eric Thomas ?

    No, just not my area of interest


    What could Eric Thomas have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    nothing, the book was fine, just not my area


    Any additional comments?

    This is a fine book/story for the right audience. But it really applies more to people who are trying to raise themselves up and get their core life together. Unfortunately I did not get this from the reviews and synopsis before purchasing. Great story, just not really what I was looking for in a audio book.
