Rehash of Zig's older material plus Jesus Christ

Zig admits early on that he is getting older and chances are that this is his last book. In this book Zig passes the mantle of leadership to his son, Tom Ziglar. Zig also mentions that this book is the best of everything that he has learned over the years. It is a rehash of his previous material that is very good for new listeners or seasoned listeners that need a review. For over thirty years I have seen Zig perform live and read or listened to his books. It is unfortunate that his message over the years has become excessively Christ oriented and religious. Zig has always credited his success to his becoming a Born Again Christian. However his relationship with Christ is excessively pushed in this book. If you enjoy crediting everything that happens to you to Jesus Christ then this is the book for you. If not then skip this one and get a book from earlier in his career.

One of the best most encouraging self-development books I’ve read in a long time. (And that’s saying something given how many books I read!)

Zig Ziglar, need I say more?

Ok how about this: This book is a culmination of the 30day talks Zig gave for years also called Born to Win. In it he talks about all of the things needed to become successful in life. There is the classic 7-Spoked Wheel of Life as well as his phrase: You were born to win, but you must plan to win and prepare to win before you can expect to win.

Considering Zig has been an authority on personal development and success since before I was born, I’m thinking he might have a few things worth listening to. It’s probably a sign of how encouraging and impactful this book was that, as soon as it was over, I started it over again.

Not only is this book uplifting, but it also give practical actionable steps towards improving your life. For those who are just interested in business development books – READ THIS TOO! At the end of the book, there is a special chapter on how to apply all the lessons Zig talks about to business life.
