I really like this book because I learnt a lot from this book. Although this book is about philosophy, but only a little theory involved. The concept of this book is easy to understand. The main theme of this book is the six steps to the top. Here is the summary of the book:
Step 1 Self-image: If you have a positive image, you can do everything well.
Step 2 Your relationship with others: The way you see them is the way you treat them. So, you better find the ¡§good¡¨ in other people and in every situation.
Step 3 Goals: Everyone should have at least one goal. The goal should be fulfilled four requirements: i.Big Goals, ii. Goals must be Long-range, iii. Goals must be daily, iv.Goals must be specific.
Step 4 Attitude: A right mental attitude helps you to build a positive life attitude.
Step 5 Work: Most successful people are really enjoyed their job.
Step 6 Desire: People have their own desire will became more successful.
These 6 steps are really useful in our daily life. The concepts of this book are practical and positive. It teaches us how to built a better future. After I read this book, I really feel more confident to my work. It was because this book teaches us that we should believe the concept of ¡§I CAN¡¨. Once you believe in yourself, you can do everything well.
The only bad point of this book is too much emphasis on religion. I am not fully understood some stories are about religion. Some sentences are even directly copied from the Bible. All in all, I do really like to read this book.

This book has many philosophies about how to get a better life. Zig Ziglar used of many real life examples and his personal experience to elaborate the formula to the top. Here are the six steps to the top:
1. Establish a healthy self-image: Image improves = performance improves
2. Build a good relationship with others: Always find ??Good?? in others
3. Set your goals: The only way to get to the top is to have a meaningful goal
4. Have a positive life attitude: React positively to negative situations
5. Work ?V Act now: Start your work to achieve the goals
6. Desire: Take whatever ability you have in whatever you are doing and utilize it to the maximum

Recommend this to everyone ~ it will help motivate you to reach your goals.
The premise is simple: We all hold the keys to our own success, and we deserve it. It is not accidental but deliberate and takes hard work.
1) Success starts with self-image because you are the only one who can make that possible. Before you convince anyone else, you have to convince yourself.
2) Successful people are ¡°Good Finders¡±; they look for the good in other people. ¡°You can have anything in your life, if you help others get what they want¡±. (page 57)
3) No goals = no game. Activity is not accomplishment. Don¡¯t be a wandering generality. Goals should be big, long range, daily and specific.
4) Unlimited possibilities. Records were meant to be broken. Until Roger Bannister ran the four-minute mile, most thought it was physically impossible. After his achievement, people broke the record constantly.
5) Work as a team. There is a limit to what you can accomplish by yourself. Example: Geese fly 72% farther by flying together.
6) Attitude is everything. It determines the outcome. While you cannot control the environment, you (and only you) can control your attitude. The pessimist says. ¡°I will believe it when I see it.¡± The optimist says, ¡°I will see it when I believe it.¡± (page 206)
7) Create good habits because habits define our lives. Example: The average teenage student watches 17,000 hours of television before they graduate high school.
8) Successful people enjoy their work.
9) Keep going. "The price of success is less than the price of failure". (page 33)

More than twenty years ago, this book, along with a great friend from the Church played a pivotal role in helping me to turn my life around. The book amazingly does help lift a person from the depths of despair and doubt. It's principles are easy to put into practice. I found Zig Zigglar's style to be entertaining, great fun--he makes it easy to stay motivated and focus on the most important principles in life that seem so easily lost. SEE YOU AT THE TOP made me laugh for the first time in such a long time. Now, I am refreshing my attitude with OVER THE TOP. I got the two-tape version. That was outstanding so I got the book and I'm not disappointed. I always wanted to thank Zig somehow, and I should have found a way to do that.

If you only buy one book about success this should be it! Zig Ziglar is a man of faith and positive vision. His philosophy is summarized in the idea that we are born to help others. Furthermore, by helping others we will be able to achieve our own goals. Zig writes in an anecdotal style that is delightful and easy to read. His writing will challenge you, make you laugh and shine the light of introspection upon your priorities. What is it you want to accomplish? Zig will show you the steps of procession that will guide you to the top and to your ultimate life goal. I could not more highly recommend this book.

I read this book again "for the first time" (as an old commercial goes) and could not put it down. Zig's no-nonsense, old-fashioned approach to success is timeless! It is a worthwhile book to read for those who want to learn success from the soul outward. Some may consider the style and manner of this book as trite and arcane but in this day and age of guerilla business tactics this book is a still a breath of fresh air. This is one book you will come back to time and time again.

Zig Ziglar is one of my favorite inspirational speakers. Wisdom, insight and personal experience are served up in this classic presentation. A worthwhile addition to the library of anyone who is interested in personal growth and satisfaction.

This man has a gift to lift you up and point out in a fasinating way how we set ourselves up for failure - a great CD to put in your car and listen to - his southern accent is engaging. A great listen or read (if you buy the book)
