Robert Ringer

Best-selling author and motivator Robert Ringer joins WND’s commentary lineup today as a weekly exclusive columnist.

Ringer, known as “a voice of sanity in an insane world,” uses humorous anecdotes and stories to communicate his insights and strong stands on controversial issues. His writing is uniquely entertaining but packs a straightforward punch.

“I guess it was way back in the late 1970s that I first read a Robert Ringer book – one of his New York Times best sellers,” said Joseph Farah, editor of WorldNetDaily. “It is a real honor to have this veteran of the old media on board this New Media enterprise.”

Of the eight books under Ringer’s belt, three have been No. 1 best sellers: “Restoring the American Dream,” “Looking Out for #1” and “To Be or Not to Be Intimidated?” (the updated and totally rewritten version of “Winning through Intimidation”). The latter two works have been listed by the New York Times among the 15 best-selling motivational books of all time. Millions worldwide have read Ringer’s books, which have been published in several foreign languages.

Ringer’s latest work is entitled, “Action! Nothing Happens Until Something Moves.”

The success of Ringer’s books has generated a loyal following of business leaders, salespeople, entrepreneurs and others from all walks of life.

Notes an analysis on Ringer’s website: “The psycho-babble, superficial feel-good platitudes and tired clich?s that saturate the pages of so many self-development, business and motivational books are conspicuously absent from his works.”

Often referred to as “the thinking person’s adviser,” Ringer has appeared on numerous national talk shows through the years, including “The Tonight Show, Today,” “Good Morning America,” “The Montel Williams Show,” “ABC News Nightline” and “The Charlie Rose Show.” In addition, he has been the subject of feature articles in such major publications as Time, People, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Barron’s and The New York Times.

Ringer’s free e-letter, A Voice of Sanity in an Insane World, is available via his website,
