©2008 Zig Ziglar; (P)2008 Made For Success
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 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.
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.
This is such an incredible book on just keeping your eye on the prize, and not letting the little things get in your way. I love it, and I love listening to it again and again and again!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Zig Ziglar's energy and inspirational and motivational stories and secrets to success can literally change your life.From listening every day and several times over for several weeks i started to feel more energy, more enthusiasm for my job and for exercising and in general for life.
his sheer energy and enthusiasm and humour that will make you laugh and cry and get motivated
there are many but the jokes he intersperses with his stories are fabulous
"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.
I really enjoyed this audiobook.loved the accent.Great life stories.worth a listen to in my opinion.
"Age old new ideas"
Great! I am not a reviewer but I hope this one encourages you to get it and listen with an open hopeful mind... See you (and I do mean you) at the top🙃
"Positive and uplifting"
I started listening to this after hearing Seth Godin recommend it in an interview. Although it sounds a little dated today, it's nonetheless very positive, uplifting and life-affirming. Zig's delivery is funny and charming, his advice common sense. I loved listening to every minute.
its a motivational book good the have in the ear keeping your self talk productive
"Zig always delivers!"
A truly fantastic audiobook with lots of funny humour. Looking forward to listening to another very soon. 👍😉
The book is inspiring and practicable. I have started putting the advice and qualities into use.
