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.
