Ambition can be a powerful force for good in our lives. But only if it is legitimate. Sometimes misinterpreted and often misunderstood, ambition - true ambition - is not a selfish quality. It is not another word for ruthless; it is not something to be shunned or subdued. Legitimate ambition is an honorable trait. At its very best, our ambition serves us and other people. In fact, pursuing your ambition is one of the most selfless things you can do.

Marketing and PR expert Peter Shankman has been working with the biggest companies in the world to create what he calls zombie loyalists--fervent fans who help companies massively increase their customer bases, brand awareness, and, most important, revenues. Imagine an army of customers who will do your public relations, marketing, and advertising without being asked each and every time they give you their money. These are zombie loyalists.

the book was rather basic and could be summed up as, "common courtesy can actually be a bankable asset for your business." it has nothing revolutionary about the book, but great title and great narration makes it worth listening to.

In February 2013, Toronto's former mayor, Rob Ford, was caught on video smoking crack cocaine. Weeks later, he was accused of groping a campaign rival; had to leave a gala for being too intoxicated; and was fired as the coach of a high school football team. The events were part of a stream of Rob Ford "mishaps", which include a DUI; accusations of domestic violence; a trial where the Toronto City Council stripped him of his powers; even accusations of murder.

He's got the biggest personality in business. His trademark line "You're fired" from The Apprentice is one of America's most recognizable catchphrases. He's survived the biggest real-estate bankruptcy in history and climbed his way back to the top. He's Donald J. Trump, and he's going to tell listeners the secrets to succeeding like he has in Think BIG and Kick Ass in Business and Life. His co-author is Bill Zanker, CEO of the Learning Annex, which he started with $5,000 in Bar Mitzvah money.

the narrator was good until the end when he tried out his annoying and possibly offensive accents of Chinese, Texas accent, Indian accent, et cetera.

story was like a less kitschy version of the secret for angrier people. overall I'd still recommend this.
