From Library Journal
Readers of Ziglar's other how-to-succeed books will know what to expect: formulas and slogans by the dozen, illustrative anecdotes (often drawn from his own experiences), a few facts of behavioral psychology made easy, and some arrestingly provocative statementsamong them "You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want!" As a rule, success-winning formula books tend to ignore the problems presented by the differences in people's individual capacities, with the result that they too easily assume the practice by everyone of a few simple principles will guarantee success. Ziglar's book is no exception to this rule, but, all things considered, it is a cut above most titles of this kind. A. J. Anderson, Graduate Sch. of Library & Information Science, Simmons Coll., Boston History Fairbank, John King. The Great Chinese Revolution: 1800 to the present.

This book is basically about how to be a good example and inspire others by living consistent to your values while applying timeless principles to leadership. Like sports, it is often doing the fundamentals really well that leads to tremendous success. For example, look at Tiger Woods. He always returns to improving and grooving the fundamentals.
What makes this book particularly worthwhile is the quality of the story telling, analogies and examples. This helps the principles to land. While this book is simple and straightforward, it's not necessarily simple to apply especially when you get in a difficult situation that tempts you to violate your own principles.
I have been fairly successful in business and worked for more than one Fortune 100 company in different careers. I also had the good fortune of working in Silicon Valley for such companies as Oracle, PeopleSoft and VMware in a variety of management roles. I have tested these ideas in practice and as a result built winning teams. Any of the books I have bought by Zig Ziglar have paid for themselves many times over. I hope you have the same experience.
