More About Zig Ziglar
Hilary Hinton "Zig" Ziglar (November 6, 1926 – November 28, 2012) was an American author, salesman, and motivational speaker.
Zig Ziglar was born in Coffee County in southeastern Alabama to parents John Silas Ziglar and Lila Wescott Ziglar. He was the tenth of twelve children.
In 1931, when Ziglar was five years old, his father took a management position at a Mississippi farm, and his family moved to Yazoo City, where he spent most of his early childhood. The next year, his father died of a stroke, and his younger sister died two days later.
Ziglar served in the United States Navy during World War II (c. 1943 to 1945). He was in the Navy V-12 Navy College Training Program and attended the University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina. In 1944, he met his wife, Jean, in the capital city of Mississippi, Jackson; he was seventeen and she was sixteen. They married in late 1946.
Ziglar later worked as a salesman in a succession of companies. In 1968, he became a vice president and training director for the Automotive Performance company, moving to Dallas, Texas.
As of 2010, Ziglar still traveled around taking part in motivational seminars, despite a fall down a flight of stairs in 2007 that left him with short-term memory problems. State Representative Chris Greeley of Maine mentions Ziglar in the credits of his CD on public speaking.
Ziglar wove his Christianity into his motivational work. He was also an open Republican who endorsed former Governor Mike Huckabee for his party's presidential nomination in 2008.
Ziglar, who had been suffering from pneumonia, died at the age of eighty-six at a hospital in Plano, Texas on November 28, 2012.
Zig Ziglar currently resides in Dallas, in the state of Texas.

Zig's Book Nov 22, 2008
This is a book EVERYONE should have if they want to be a success in and at life. 100% positive , energizing, and inspiring!
A classic guide to improving your life Jun 27, 2008
Speaker and writer Zig Ziglar makes the most of being endearingly cornball. He straightforwardly writes, "I plead guilty to loving the Lord, my wife, my family [and] my fellow man." He proudly wears his heart on his sleeve, dedicating this book to his beloved spouse of more than half a century, "Sugar Baby." He is sentimental to the extreme, writing across from the title page: "You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want." Well, people obviously love Ziglar's schmaltzy wisdom. For almost four decades, he has been a hugely popular motivational speaker and writer. This book, a classic from 1975, has been published in 12 languages, including Korean, Serbian, Turkish and Slovenian. Unlike many motivational, self-help authors who serve up insipid clichés and warmed-over mush, Ziglar offers worthy, inspiring - if simplistic - ideas on improving your life and achieving your goals. Some of his message stems from his cited Christian beliefs, but his focus is on boosting your morale, not your morals. getAbstract thinks he'll make you feel good about yourself, the people around you and life in general, if you can just accept that corniness is part of the package.
great book Aug 9, 2007
It's a great book to motivate yourself and others. Now I also bought the cassettes. I wish everyone(family) has one like this. Then we will have a better society. I like the stories in the book. I have already used one in my toastmaster speech. Buy it, Read it, own it, I bet you won't regret your time.
Solid, practical advice for everyone.... Feb 23, 2007
In this classic book, Zig Ziglar present 9 principles that will get you to the top. It is written in an optimistic upbeat manner that will truly inspire you and Mr. Ziglar is always mindful of a holistic, balanced way of living that serves your real purposes. For example, at one point he says, "before you climb the ladder of success, make sure it is leaning up against the right wall." These are the kinds of pearls of wisdom this book contains.
There are many people who have written good reviews on the contents of this book, there is no need for me to repeat all of this hear. However, I want to comment on the spirit and style of how this great information is presented. Simply put, Zig Ziglar is a master story teller that walks his talk. He is one of the only people I knew who got the best of the "Sixty Minutes" team!
If you are interested in making it to the top while preserving your values and not selling your soul, this could be a good roadmap for you. I discovered Zig Ziglar in my twenties, saw him speak and had a personal conversation with him.
In my twenties when there was a recession and I was feeling despondent because I didn't have a lot of job experience and I couldn't get a job, Mr. Ziglar listened empathetically to me and that suggested that the recession is not out there. It's between your ears and he said, "let's you and I make an agreement not to participate in this recession. I know that I'm still making lots of money." This really landed deeply and when I protested that I didn't have a lot of experience, he looked me in the eye and said, "you have twenty three years of experience being honest, open, communicating directly, keeping your agreements, etc." If your lack of experience comes up in an interview, tell them this and add that anything else you need to learn is easy compared to building good character. I never forgot that moment and in my next interview I tried it and I landed a good job with Pharmakon Research International as an Associate Scientist. I credit Mr. Ziglar with having the empathy to really see me and tell me just the right thing that restored my confidence. This is the space this book is written from and if this sounds good to you, I think you will get a lot out of it.
Some of the language of this book is old fashioned. However, the principles are really timeless and now that I am older, I realize he was right and that much of my success is the result of internalizing these principles and the principles of other good men that I have had the good fortune to know and be touched by.
Worth reading Feb 28, 2006
This book has a lot of very good material on enthusiasm and goal-setting and attitude. I highly recommend it for that. However, Zig gets a little preachy when he starts telling us we should spank children to discipline them, as well as his religious views. The final chapter is basically just thrown in to tell you his views. The main problem I have with the book is how Zig refers to homosexuality as a "bad habit" and how he equates "homosexual" literature with pornography. If you can overlook his homophobia, you will probably enjoy the book and get a lot out of it.
