Reviews - What do customers think about Success for Dummies?

Goal setting not up to par...  Dec 29, 2005
I enjoyed this book. Lots, and I mean lots, of stories about making it in life. Zig provides lots of motivation to the reader to start succeeding in life and by life, Zig tackles all facets, not just financial. Heavy on the religious, which didn't bother me, Zig believes that people must be well-rounded to succeed. One problem, which I felt was a big problem, was the way Zig has you select goals. After spending considerable time selecting what you want out of life, Zig has you categorize your goals based on financial, family, spiritual, mental, personal, etc. Then, when you get done, he says something like, "Okay, now see if you goals are well-rounded. If they are not, then cut out some of your goals that make yourself off-balance." This is difficult b/c many goals overlap, which is something he doesn't discuss. But why not have the reader select two goals from each category first??? Also, he ignores any research discussing how to deal with issues of teen sex and drug use. He simply says abstain, which is great but simplistic. This would save a whole lot of time! Bottom line: If you are looking for motivation, this is a solid book for you.
Earth to Zig...  Nov 14, 2003
The author states that one can get what one wants by helping others get what they want.

He not from big city, is he?

Good book, but not in the "For Dummies" format  Oct 7, 2003
This book is an inspirational roadmap in a well balanced and successful life. Zig Ziglar draws upon a wealth of personal experience to illustrate the importance of balancing the various parts of out lives to attain to true success, not just material success. The fault I find with this book is that its subject matter is not a good fit for the "For Dummies" format. Success in life is not a subject you can pick and choose, which is the essence of the "For Dummies" concept. This is a good book, but be prepared to read it cover to cover to derive the greatest benefit.
Well rounded approach to success  May 18, 2003
This book covers all areas of life that people need to address to be successful. I appreciated his coverage of the importance of spirituality. Although he is a mainstream Christian, he makes clear that spirituality can be found in other religions as well.

The only thing I disagreed with were his comments about obedience being vital to success. I don't believe in absolute obedience. Obdience to organizations and authority figures should be relative. For example, if you have a religious authority figure who wants you to do something unethical or immoral, you should follow your conscience and remain obedient to God's law as found in the Bible. Human beings do not deserve absolute obedience as they are imperfect and prone to mistakes.

Also, I thought he used too many examples of famous people in sports as positive examples. I do not play golf and couldn't care less about sports, but I still tried to find the positive in his statements (such as the value of personal integrity, the value of working together as a team, etc.) Is the person who is not rich or famous unsuccessful?

I felt lost in my career until I found this book!  Mar 21, 2003
I decided to check this book out of the library at a time in my life when I couldn't decide what I wanted to do in life. I had been out of college for two years, and couldn't seem to find a job in my field since I moved to Ga., despite my interviews. I was exploring different fields related to Special Ed. It sounds weird but, somehow while reading this book, I just knew what I was suppossed to be doing. Due to the series of questions he asked you about your goals. I highly reccomend this book to any one who can't decide where to go in life. Zig, told me that I wasn't really "lost" I just needed to find some direction in life. He was so right! I guess I just needed someone to tell me to wake up and decide what I was going to do with the rest of my life instead fo just subing all the time. Ironically, enough he guided me back on track to Special Ed, when I read the story about the man who found himself going back to the same career he used to do. I guess I just needed someone to tell me that for my life to feel on track, I needed to enroll in the TAPP (teacher alternative program), and be a Special Ed teacher instead of just being the aid like always. I really feel like God wanted me to find this book at this time in my life. True, Zig is relgious, but even if you aren't I feel like anyone could benift from his book. It has quite a few "duh" moments that a lot of people never think of. I have been hearing about Zig ever since I was like 9 or 10 and had always wanted to go to his seminars, but never had the chance. It is so true about what people think about him! Thanks Zig!
