Format: Hardcover
Zig's popularity didn't really explode until this book was released for the first time in 1993. And most authors choose to refer this book, out of all other ones Zig has written for others to read. Instead of focusing on just pure motivation, Zig teaches the art of living a happy, well-balanced life. The books starts off by raising you out of the trench of depression, then by giving you hope, arming you with a positive attitude and then instructing you with the best goal setting program I have ever read. Some parts of the book in opinion were quite dull and could use more follow up information,
but just the a good orchestra the final product was beautifully composed. If you're looking for a fun, humorous and simple book, I strongly suggest you take a look at Zig's Success for Dummies first, before buying this one. If you have one you do not need the other. The reason I like SFD better is because it combines his books See you at the Top and this one together.

Format: Hardcover
"In my own life I always pray for guidance as I choose my goals," writes Ziglar. In the margin I dated it and wrote "I do too." This book contains so much rich, practical, doable wisdom, not wonder it's a classic for achievers. Persistence leads to desired results. He quotes Robert Collier in making the point when he noted, "Success is the sum of small efforts--repeated day in and day out."
Ziglar talks about seeing one's self in the mind's eye as a prelude to accomplishment. "I dreamed overy forty years ago that I would be traveling the world, making speeches to every conceivalbe kind of group. I literally saw myself in front of vast audiences making those talks," he tells us.
On feeding success mentally, he reminds us of the necessity to surround ourselves with people who are going to edify us. He adds, "read good books." This is one such good book. Read it!

Zig's message and inspiration have given me the hope, power, and courage to have the things in life I want. My attitude about life has changed dramatically and have remained high for almost a year. I would recommend this book (as well as all his books) to anyone wanting to succeed in life. Thank you Zig from me as well as my family.

Format: Hardcover
Zig presents principles in this book that would help anyone who is willing to take the time to apply them. The section on goal-setting was very useful to me and very practical. Zig has a way of making things easy to understand and in his upbeat style you come away knowing that you can do it too! Another thing that I really appreciate about Zig is that he doesn't put his faith on the backburner. He clearly presents Biblical principles because they have changed his life as well as the lives of countless thousands of others.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book at a book fair at my job and was reasonably impressed. Mr Ziglar definatly knows how to motivate people, and help with self esteem. One great example from the book is an assistant of his who was afraid of public speaking. She had to run a presentation for Mr. Ziglar once when he was late. At first she was really upset, but once she did it she loved it. She later became a sales trainer for one of the largest cosmetics companies in the country.
He also goes into changing jobs and being positive. Like when you talk about your job you say "I work for xyz company, and let me tell you about this great guy I work for". As opposed to "Man that guy never liked me and they keep taking benefits away". This may seem like common sense, but i like the fact that Mr Ziglar examines a fact that many business leaders don't want to admit. Bosses know when they are shafting you but don't want to hear it ( 90% of the time)even if they ask for input. An interviewer knows that if you loved your job you would probably not be leaving, so you need a good exuse, such as no further room for growth, needing a new challenge, or relocating if the 2 companies are far enough apart.
One final point about the book i would like to make is this. Mr. Ziglar gives a bonus in this book. He tells you the one book that just about every single one of the CEO's of the top companies in the country have read. This book is the bible. I like the fact that in today's politically correct society that we live in that there is a author that seems the love and faith in god as paramount to someone's success. A nice statistic is that 80% of the CEO's of those same companies admit to being either christian or jewish. A faith in the man upstairs can definatly be beneficial to your carrear. Happy reading and God bless you and God bless America

Great motivational and inspirational book. Zig has come up with a lot of good ideas to help those confused or depressed, or just need a little more inspiration! After the first initial chapters, some of Zig's messages seem to appear repeating itself, but nevetheless, still a must read for anyone who needs to pump up their life a bit.
