    "Entirely religious material - Not what I expected"

    I listened to another Zig Ziglar tape a few years ago and I liked it, so I gave this audiobook a chance. The previous tape I listened to was inspiring and Zig was full of energy. It was a lot of common sense material.
    THIS audiobook "Staying up, up, up,..." is almost ENTIRELY a mono-tone, religious review of biblical scriptures.
    "Psalm 23 says"
    "Mark, chapter 2, verse 10 says"
    "Paul, in Leviathon 5 tells us that"
    On and on......
    I did not enjoy this audiobook at all.

    "Love Ziglar, Just Not This Book"

    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.

    "Zig has a lot of wisdom to share"
    Where does Staying Up, Up, Up in a Down, Down World rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is an exceptional book to encourage you to do your very best.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Zig is always very candid about life lessons he has learned. He had great advice on the type of person we should go to when we are looking for help and direction in our lives.


    What about Zig Ziglar’s performance did you like?

    A great story teller.


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

    It's important to get advice from those that have gone through similar situations. This helps them them to understand the heart and emotions of a matter. Good advice without firsthand experience can be the wrong advice at times.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book and worth the read for anyone desiring to live a life of integrity.

    "very religious"
    What disappointed you about Staying Up, Up, Up in a Down, Down World?

    I didn't realize it was going to be about the bible and religion. I was extremely disappointed and I couldn't finish it cause this is not what I bought the book for. The book should have been called, what the bible and religion and can do for you to stay up in a down world. But, if you like bible talk and religion, you might like it.

    Story
    "I want my credit back!"

    The only thing I liked about this book was the author's name. Although this book is supposed to be a 'self-help’ book, I felt the author's overly “superiorly virtuous” attitude and self- righteously pious condemnation of some public figures was inappropriate. I do not listen/read a self help to hear the author's opinion of who behaves badly and who does not. This guy is a republican to the core. If he wants to help and/or inspire people, he can leave out the political banter and the religious superiority. May I have my credit back?
