5.0 out of 5 stars Zig Zagged Plenty Before He Reached the Top, April 23, 2015
This review is from: Zig: The Autobiography of Zig Ziglar (Paperback)
Length:: 2:57 Mins

Zig Ziglar wrote the book "See You at the Top," yet his road to the top of his profession was far from easy. Born the tenth of twelve children and losing his father at age five, he grew up in near poverty, dropped out of college, and failed in many risky business ventures that threatened his financial security.

Even so, eventually he gained fame and respect internationally as a speaker, author, and sales trainer. He became friends with corporate leaders and American presidents. His name became synonymous with optimism, hard work, and lifelong learning.

The book includes frequent illustrations of his homespun humor, such as his remark that he "dieted religiously," meaning that he never ate in church.

Too, he devotes considerable space to his family's most tragic event, the death of daughter Suzan from pulmonary fibrosis. To help other grieving parents, he wrote a book about how his faith brought peace and strength he could not have known otherwise. In fact, throughout the book he speaks proudly of his values, shared by his beloved wife--"The Redhead"--and their descendants.

I applaud Zig Ziglar for acknowledging the friends and advisers who boosted his career and shaped his life, in contrast to egotists who claim to be "self made."

Having admired Zig for years, I wish I had been aware of this book sooner. His candid life story reflects courage, repeated recovery from threatening circumstances, and the commitment to teach others how to maximize their skills and opportunities.
