Not Ziglar’s best book, but certainly situational! Many of the other books by Zig Ziglar are longer and more in depth, this is better for a quick reference, or if you are reading on the go.

This book is just over 100 pages and is a very small pocket book that can fit in your, well… pocket.

The price isn’t bad either when you consider it’s one of Zig’s.

People have said that this book was worth the money, but wasn’t life changing. Some said it was basic, and a bit nostalgic as it was similar to some of Zig’s older work.
