In the real-life stories Zig shares, drawn from nearly fifty years as a world-class motivatinal author, speaker, and businessman, you'll discover how others have risen above fear and failure to embrace the quality of life they were meant to have. Their experiences will teach you how to accomplish more than you ever dreamed possible, even as you learn:

Let the master of motivatin help you clear your mind of failure-prone thinking, as together with Zig Ziglar, you redefine success and take hold of your dreams. Let him inspire you to be Better Than Good!
In Ziglar's new book, Better Than Good: Creating a Life You Can't Wait to Live, we get the usual fare from this writer. There are lists of things to do in order to set and reach goals, improve integrity, enhance one's marriage, and do a better job at work. There are also endless stories of people who overcame great odds to become champions in their areas of expertise. And there are also stories of losers, such as the man who let Bill Gates be the first to market MS/DOS and, thus, missed a chance to become a billionaire. This is fun reading and exactly what we've come to expect from Ziglar in book after book, speech after speech, and training film after training film. No surprises there, and, in fact, he freely admits in several of the chapters that he is reprinting material from his earlier books, or material he has been given permission to reprint from other writers' books.
However, now writing for Integrity Publishers rather than some of the secular imprints his books have appeared under previously, Ziglar openly tells of his conversion to Christianity, his witnessing to his brother and friends and business colleagues, his favorite Bible verses, and his prayer life. He bluntly states that his relationship with Jesus Christ is the most important thing in his life, and he encourages everyone to find this same Savior. He even goes so far as to say that a good life--even if it is "better than good"--will not get anyone into Heaven. Only knowing Jesus as Lord will do that.
Looking back now, Ziglar says that he made many mistakes along the way, but, nevertheless, he would not change one thing about his life because he would be afraid it might change where he would wind up. And he likes where he is now. Oh, he has an old man's conservative crankiness, he admits; but his daughter, who serves as his editor and proofreader, makes him tone down his rants and pull back on his judgments. Still, the distillation of nearly five decades of studying salesmanship, leadership, motivation, Christianity, patriotism, education, and parenting is found in this new book. There is wisdom here worth listening to, and it is presented in a readable, "talkative" style. It's the kind of book that can be read from cover to cover, then put on a bookshelf and kept handy for days when rereading of one chapter will provide emotional stimulation and rejuvenation.
