More About Zig Ziglar & 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.

What a wonderful book that encourages you every day! May 8, 2007
Who needs encouragement? The answer is "Everyone who has breath needs encouragement." It means everybody around you including yourself. I found this heart warming stories of people with integrity, faith, love,and kindness encouraging me every day. Whenever I read this book, I almost can hear Zig talking to me in his Texan accent. It may appear as just a little book, but through this little book, you will gain a direct access to Zig's life long philosophy, passion, wisdom and encouragement. Read the book and be the person who encourage others around you!
What a downer Jul 5, 2004
I have been a fan of Ziglar's for many years and found his books and audios inspiring, but now he has gone off the deep end with his non-stop Bible quotes. If you like being preached to, this may be for you, but it wasn't for me.
