"Born to Win" is basically an updated combination of much of Zig Ziglar's previously published (though groundbreaking) material. The book guides the reader through his well-known "plan, prepare and expect" strategy. Much of the material in this book is already contained in "See You at the Top" and the "Born to Win" audio seminar, so there isn't a ton of new material. The book is an excellent introduction for individuals new to Ziglar's world of self-improvement and it provides a great summary of...more

I know this review will be colored by recent reviews. I was reading this when I heard that Zig Ziglar had passed away.

At the beginning he mentions this is his swan song, as he doubted his health would allow him to have the opportunity to write more.

Zig introduced me to personal development and motivation and has always been a great source of charm, wit, quotability mixed with good old fashioned down home wisdom.

This book is more or less a "best of" and someone looking for something new and radic...more
I hadn't read any of Zig's book before this... so this one was neat since it compressed his four decades of books in to one--kind of. I listened to it on audio and was a bit disappointed Zig wasn't the reader. There were some great life points in there that can/will also be transferred in to my business.

I've never read any Zig Ziglar books, but I decided to give this one a read since its recommended by Dave Ramsey and I do everything he says.

It's a short read that will take you through three parts of success: planning, preparing, expecting. It's kind of what you'd expect from a motivational're awesome, you can do anything you want, help others, etc.

There's quite a bit of spiritual talk which, in hindsight, I should of expected, but didn't.

Overall I enjoy listening to successful old t...more

Excellent book to read for personal and business growth!
Sandy Yang
I had no clue what I was listening at the very beginning. It quickly got my attention, and I had to say, it helped me to be strong during an extremely tough days at work. I listened to it many times.
If you are not sure about yourself, or if somebody puts you down, listen to Zig Ziglar. He will cheer you up. RIP Zig Ziglar.

food for deep thoughts and many life truths.
perfect for self-development
Suzanne Gunter McClendon
If I could give this book - and this man - one hundred stars, I would. Anything by Zig Ziglar is a shot of hope and encouragement, which is something that we all need these days.

Read it. Be inspired. Set your goals and be prepared to win! Zig says that you can do it, so you can!
I'm sure if you've read Ziglar before this is nothing new--it is a compilation of some of his other books. However, this was my first Ziglar read and although I found it repetitive/preachy at times, I thought the advice was sound and I liked his explanation of why it is important to set goals.

easily digestible and straightforward. if you are a productive or business nerd, there won't be anything new in here for you to follow, but it does work as a healthy does of that kind of inspirational diet.
This is an excellent book! looking forward to putting this advice into practice.
David Peterson
listened to this book on CD. Excellent book! This has been one of my favorite books. I definitely will listen to the book again and will purchase the book for my own library.

A very practical yet good read if you lost your way or path to your goals in life. This also motivates every person how easy it is to succeed.
Travis Ogden
Great summary of Zig Ziglar's work. I enjoyed this book and took many notes. He weaves God into his teachings which I like as well.
You within the society you live - can't succeed if you don't pay attention to others. Lots of stories - inspiring sort of book.
