“His name might not conjure up a familiar face, but he is present nonetheless, and present everywhere. What Ziegfeld’s book does best is showcase how success is a relative term …  But if success, to you, looks like a challenging – even adventurous – life full of rich detail, laughter, and just enough adversity to keep things interesting, then Ziegfeld has earned himself the highest honors. And so has his story.”

– WENDI NUNNERY, HuffPost Columnist & Author

“Ziggy’s true stories perfectly depict the wacky ups and downs of being an ‘almost famous’ performer! Some parts are so funny it’ll make you cry and other parts may just make you want to cry.

If you want to know the truth about what it takes to build and create a career for yourself – and how to make the most of it, then this is the book for you.”

“Besides being a treasure trove of fun, I still must give props for the author for holding back some of the more delicate details he has been privy to. I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars because the author has truly lived a unique and eventful life, so the highlights he gives us as the reader, are equally remarkable and captivating.”
