    "Inspiring"

    I just love this guys enthusiasm, his voice is dreadful, but I just love him. I totally get his humor and he really does motivate me.

    This is not a book to take to bed. The car isnt a good place either as I take notes to capture those quirky expressions that get my creative juices flowing.

    I can listen to this over and over, always find something new to either give me a giggle and refresh stale ideas.

    "Zig without interruptions make it worth it."

    OK .. A previous review states that this is mostly material from his podcast. That in its self is a true statement the difference here is that you get the stories back to back without having to put the podcasts in the right order. And no interruptions.

    This is a great audiobook its classic Zig and some of the stories are repeated in other material but who cares it's Zig ! You can hear the same story over and over again and its still as interesting and motivating as it was the the first time you hears it.

    His excitement and love for life is contagious ! Great way to start the morning.

    You can listen to it at a faster speed but you wouldn't want to.

    "This book made me a Zig fan"

    This book is an excellent listen that will teach everyone something about attitude, direction, motivation, and having a successful career and life. Zig likes to use humor and short stories to make his points and I gaurantee you will listen to this book over and over. His best work. Of the 20+ audio books I've downloaded, this is my favorite.

    "Encouraged"

    Yes Zig is a Christian and he doesn't hide that fact. For people of like faith it is a refreshing collection of encouraging and motivating advice with biblical reference brought in once in a while. For others who don't share his beliefs it is still full of great wisdom that is very relevent regardless of the odd bible verses tossed in which some might not like.
    He is a speaker and motivator very highly regarded and comes highly recommended to anyone.
    To make it even more enjoyable he has a great sense of humour making it a fun listen as well.

    "Repeated material"

    I love Zig, this review is in no way to discount his material, in fact if your a new listener, you'll get a nice round introduction to his style and his motivational power. However if you've heard his other titles and/or listen to his podcasts, the material on this release is a compulation of that work. In some instances, I believe it may have even repeated some of the material on this same recording. I often listen to him repeatedly anyway, but feel I already own most of this material. I heard little to nothing new.

    "Inspiring"

    His message is simple, yet profound. He is fun, down to earth and a brilliant story teller. I listened to it all more or less immediately cos he's got lots of good stuff to share, remind us of and to inspire us with.


    The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because he speaks too fast, and he tends to shout a lot. Would have been perfect otherwise.

    "Great Material,but Not New"

    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.

    "Wonderful in Every Way"

    If you've not heard of Zig Ziglar you are in for a treat, Zig is an amazing speaker & will keep you entertained, make you laugh, make you think & make you look at your own life. This man is speaking from experience & from his perspective on life. I never thought I'd be able to listen to this audio book with his Southern accent, yet, I fell in love with the accent & his words of wisdom. He can get carried away and forget where he was, yet, he'll end up to what he wanted to say. Again it's a book that is well worth the read, it'll make you think & encourage you to motivate your life.

    "Real down to earth guy"

    In Zig's down to earth style, these lectures 'rock' with common-sense ideas that are fast becoming uncommon. I only wish that Zig would remember that he is not only talking to Americans - but to people all around the world - that way he would have tried to explain concepts and slangs that only Americans would understand.
    However, the Audiobook is a great source of motivational ideas.

    "A bit Preachy"

    Starts off really well, but then get a bit preachy and biblical. Loses momentum and i found myself drifting thinking of other things whilst this was playing in the background - sounds quite dated too.

    "Stand up comic & career manager rolled into one!"

    A collection of old Zig Zigar tapes in put together in a new format. Zig is one of the original fathers of the personal development industry. You laugh your head off at his humor whilst learning valuable life lessons.

    Voice was very intriguing

    "good common sense with religious undertones!"
    What did you like best about How to Stay Motivated? What did you like least?

    I likes the messages within the cd and the stories and hummer used, i found the cd a little bit preshy and felt one of the life messages was to find faith!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Zig Ziglar? Why or why not?

    i would not try another book, this one was a series of studio and seminar recordings which repeat, repetition seems to be key to staying motivated as with a lot of things in life. i imagen any further recordings would be of a similar nature.u could just listen to the same cd again and again!


    Any additional comments?

    it is very old fashioned and feels like an old recording in style, very 1990 american chat show/ american church style.

    "Wow, fantastic book!"

    Good old Zig didnt disappoint. I have listened to most, if not all of his podcasts, have read many of his books and this one was another gem. For anyone looking for real motivation, read this book. You will not be disappointed. Zig, thank you very much. I'll keep reading this book till I commit your advice to memory and its a part of me. For everything you shared in this book, thank you! Your books are helping me change my life. I cannot wait to see myself in 5 years. God bless your family.

    "Brilliant. Amazing."

    I have listened to this three times so far. I say so far, because I will listen to it time and time again. It keeps me focused, it keeps me grounded. What an amazing man Zig Ziglar is. I find myself quoting him often and it always makes people laugh.

    His technique is to entertain whilst you learn but with a strong, clear message. Not easy I'm sure, but he delivers it so well.

    I highly recommend this. Even if you don't think you need to, you will find it beneficial, I'm sure.

    "Common Sense, Straight Talking and Good Humour"

    I came too late to Zig Ziglar; only learning of the great man after his passing. I had always meant to listen to some of his stuff but never got around to it. An Audible trial was the ideal opportunity to try it out and I have been delighted with it (both Audible and this recording). Zig's common sense, straight talking and good humour makes listening to these recordings an absolute delight and he has me driving around with a smile on my face as I listen to his Southern drawl via my car's bluetooth device for my iPhone. This is my first time listening to Zig's stuff and I do not know the extent to which this compilation is repetitious, but as a newcomer it is tremendously good material and you get a huge volume of it in this one item. Zig was clearly a very religious man and this comes across very strongly in his talks; this may not be to everyone's taste but as with everything Zig does he carries it off very lightly and in a very charming way which I did not find overbearing despite the fact that that was not what I was listening for. I'm only about halfway through this bumper set but I have no hesitation in recommending it very highly.
