What disappointed you about The Ultimate Zig Ziglar Library?
The ultimate library seemed to be a lot of the same stuff cobbled together; in some cases even repeating exactly the same stories. Could have been condensed into half the amount of time.
What was most disappointing about Zig Ziglar’s story?
A lot of it was a bit outdated and a in parts Zig did overly preach.
Would you be willing to try another one of Zig Ziglar’s performances?
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Yes, there was, like any personal development books, some worthwhile takeaways, but unfortunately too few and far between for a 14 hour audio book.
Any additional comments?
Unlike the great and timeless Jim Rhon, Zig-Ziglar did feel a bit dated. Some old stories and archaic jokes were ok, but at times he did seem like a preaching old granddad. "The two worst things in life...Rock Music and Pornography. Apparently there is hidden subliminal 'bad' messaging in Rock music! and it goes against god, so keep your kids away.
There were a few good bits, but got a little too repetitive and preachy towards the end. Not something for keeps. I persevered with the 14 hours, but I wont listen again.

There were lots of times when you'd be listening to a speech and think 'hang on, I heard this an hour ago or yesterday', so there was a lot of repetitions, which is down to bad editing.
Not sure about the zig ziglar singers, that was excruciating. Lots of thinks to take from it, but what is worrying is that you are made to feel if you don't believe in god or have a faith then you will not achieve any greatness or happiness in your life. This is quite dangerous rhetoric but then again bible bashers know no other way. I respect people for what they believe in and I expect the same in return but I think mr ziglar would not entertain anybody with a different take on things. People without a faith or belief in God ARE GOOD HONEST AND DECENT WITH INTEGRITY AND COMPASSION FOR OTHERS, so if you do listen to it then be prepared. Ps, if you like listening to rock music, then that has to go, apparently its lyrical influence is corrupting us all. Damn, I really did like the Beatles, but if I wanna be happy and successful.....

I loved listening to this book, reinforced several teachings from other motivational teacher's and mentors.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Better Editing. This seems to be a group of unused material from other projects.
What could Zig Ziglar have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
I still Love Zig. However this piece of work had many repeating bits and included singing from the Ziglar Singers. I didn't know there were Ziglar singers. I dreaded every song.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Zig's messages are always worth hearing, I just didn't like the unorganized fashion this was presented and the redundant use of the same stories and materials over and over. This was pieced together from many live events and really had no focus other than "Stuff" Zig did before.
Any additional comments?
If you just like hearing Zig and don't mind the repetitiveness you may like this. I find his fully focused presentations to be much better as opposed to this compilation.
