A golden oldie - see it in context, and it stands the test of time
on 11 January 2015
A nice easy listen, with some excellent lessons, and moves at a good pace. A good introduction to the works and philosophy of Zig Ziglar.
Some reviewers have commented that the material is old, or outdated. I disagree. You have to see it in its original context, and update some of the references in your head as he's talking, but the concepts he touches on are as valid now as when he made the recordings. Similar to great works such as Think and Grow Rich, the material here has stood the test of time: it's not fly-by-night, trendy claptrap riding the wave of the latest trend of BS, it's the good, solid basics.
Other reviewers have also complained that Zig sees the world through the eyes of being a practicing Christian. Well, yes he does! That's who he was, that's what he talked about, and that's what he based his principles on. At least he's true to himself. If you don't like that sort of thing, he's not the man for you! Personally, I think he explains what he's saying very well. A reviewer has said that he preaches against the evils of rock music! But listen more deeply, and extract the principles from what he's saying and what he advises against, and you'll get the maximum value from the recordings.
Worth listening to for a second or third time.
