I've been reading and listening to Zig since the '80's. He's had a big influence on my life and I even attended an event in his house outside Dallas, when I attended his Born to Win seminar back in 1995. His autobiography is pure Zig, all the way. The ups and downs, the good times and the difficult times and a testimony that still inspires me.

Great book!

Zig Ziglar is a man I put on a pedestal that is only shared by men like the wonderful late Mr. Rodgers. His life is an amazing testament to any business man interested in the business of what is good, right, and upstanding. His examples of how positive thought can not only change your outcome, but the outcome of those around you is compelling. Any person, especially any person in business, should read something by Zig Ziglar in their life. His books are outstanding, and this autobiography tells ...more

It was definitely interesting to read about "Zig" life (especially that he grew up with the name "Hilary". However, the book was poorly written which I thought odd considering he writes books. I was more of thrown together memories with no idea of timeline, and endless accolades for people who helped him. I am thankful he showed his gratitude to these people but it was a little much. Anyway, I still enjoyed learning a little bit more about his life and his successes and struggles. He's a good m ...more

If you want to learn about the mental and emotional attributes of good salesmanship this book is great. It is easy to read and makes sense. Ziglar comes across as a friendly, grandfatherly type as he advises you. I used to think I would never want to read such a book because I never wanted to be a salesman but it shows you basics and the fact that you can't really get away from sales in your life. You have to at least sell yourself at times. This book puts that in a good perspective.

Great read and insight on the life of Zig Ziglar. Even though he was basically naturally talented, he really threw away that talent for a long time. He failed because of ego and ignorance. When he started doing things for other people instead of himself, he finally found the super success that he had always desired.

My only disappointment with the book is towards the end it started to drag as he talked about his faith and politics.

I love all the Zig motivational and sales books, this was quite a change because it talked about all the mistakes he made to getting where he is at today. Very informative and really gives you another look at Zig.

Maybe a little long on the early years. Interesting that he spent the first 27 years of his life chasing after the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but before things clicked. I don't think it's a coincidence that it coincided with making God first in his life.

Really a great book - listened to it on CD. Zig is motivating, funny, real and just wonderful. Truly moving and touching to hear him talk about his childhood in Yazoo City, MS in the Great Depression. He was one of 11 (12?) kids, raised by a young widow. Very uplifting and motivating book!

Zig Ziglar is one of the most amazing men of our time. He has a tremendous depth of life experiences to share with everyone. His advice can be adhered to by all ages.

I loved this book about a man I truly admire.
