Maybe useful if you can stand the southern drawl in your ears!

I am sure that Mr Ziglar knows his stuff, he is highly regarded by his peers. He presents his guidance in a folksy, down home sort of way and peppers this CD with funny anecdotes, entertaining as well as educating.
BUT....the single most memorable thing about this audio CD is Mr Ziglar's southern drawl. His voice actually grates on you after a period of time, to the extent that I couldn't listen to any more after about 20 minutes. In addition, it is clear from the intonation and cadence of his voice that much of what I did hear is heavily scripted, it is obvious he is reading his dialogue. There are few changes of inflection or vocal cadence, with the effect that at times it is almost robotic.
If you contrast this CD with one by Brian Tracy, you will immediately hear the difference. Brian Tracy uses his voice to draw you into what he is saying and keep you interested, I am sorry but Ziglar on Selling was not a wise purchase in my opinion.
