Listen to everything by Zig Ziglar.

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.
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.
Mr Ziglar tells inspiring stories like a favorite uncle or grandfather in order to help make our lives better, either by the improvement of our actions or merely our perceptions. Thank God his inspirational message has been recorded for posterity.
This is an exceptional book to encourage you to do your very best.
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.
A great story teller.
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.
This is a great book and worth the read for anyone desiring to live a life of integrity.
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.
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?
