By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 May 2004
Format: Hardcover
This book has a wonderful way of teaching important life lessons. It begins with a familiar quote from the Scriptures. Then another quote (either from Zig Ziglar or someone else) expands on the Scriptural reference to make an everyday application. Third, there is a page-long story that exemplifies both principles. Some of the stories are from Zig Ziglar's own life, and others are ones that have touched him. This multilevel approach is very helpful in deepening your appreciation of the concepts involved.
Basically, Mr. Ziglar takes direct aim at the purposelessness, procrastination, defensiveness, misconception, Ugly Duckling, tradition, and bureaucratic stalls. He feels that these stalls are the most harmful to the quality of personal life and progress.
The key principle behind all this is to improve how you relate to others and how they will relate to you . . . seeing the essence of the good life in better relationships. Think of this as the Golden Rule. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
Mr. Ziglar places a great and appropriate emphasis on family, love, friendship, humility, perseverance, service, optimism, dedication, and inspiration.
This is a heart-warming book that will help you smell the roses, even in the midst of what look like daunting circumstances. As Mr. Ziglar points out, it doesn't matter where you start from . . . just where you end up.
Overcome the stalls that steal your potential joy and value in your life!

Zig's book is just wonderful, and is a book that must be read. It gave me a different insite to life and has been quite encouraging.

It is rare to find a book that has an answer to must of our questions. This book is full of encouragement.

A Worthwhile Read 3 Mar. 2011
By Kelly Libatique - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Inspiring, motivating, and knowledge-building. If you like easy to read, easy to take to heart, and all the while challenging to the mind and soul, then this is a good read. You'll find yourself going back to it again and again for reference.

There is also a big spiritual element to this work as Ziglar pulls from the learning and wisdom of Scripture.

In a nutshell--classic Zig Ziglar.
