  • "Let go of "I don't know""

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This book thoroughly debunks the idea that some things cannot be measured.

    The principal problem is that when people think of measurement, they think of precision. If they cannot think of a way to measure something precisely, then they think the thing cannot be measured. By letting go of of this attachment to precision one finds that there are lots of ways that things can be measure that provide tremendously useful information. In most cases some rough measurements will reduce considerable uncertainty, and greatly improve decision making.

    Warning. While this is a great book, it's hard to follow math on an audiobook. I'm glad I read it, but I wish I'd been using my eyes rather than my ears on this one.

    How to Measure Anything: Finding the Value of 'Intangibles' in Business

    Anything can be measured. This bold assertion is the key to solving many problems in business and life in general. The myth that certain things can't be measured is a significant drain on our nation's economy, public welfare, the environment, and even national security. In fact, the chances are good that some part of your life or your professional responsibilities is greatly harmed by a lack of measurement---by you, your firm, or even your government.

    Story

    This is an excellent book on how power is use in the workplace. Many of the examples echo experiences I've had in my career. I wish I had had the knowledge in this book year ago.

    The negative reviews of this book say more about deficiencies in the reviewers than deficiencies in the book. This is a book about the – at best – morally ambiguous techniques people use to obtain and retain power. For many readers, the experience of having those techniques articulated is repugnant, and their reaction is to blame the messenger.

    The sad fact is that at times power is achieved with dirty tricks. You’re better off knowing about these tricks; otherwise, you’ll be blindsided. For example, one case provided in the book was about an employee who was fired because she was too competent, and was a threat to her new boss. The exact same thing happened to me early in my career. And I’m not just relating my opinion of the case. A decade after the incident I encountered my boss’s boss on a flight I was taking. She apologized to me. In the months after my firing it had become clear that my boss was incompetent and was making up lies to protect herself.

    It can be a cruel world out there. The information in this book can help you defend yourself.

    Brimming with counterintuitive advice, numerous examples from various countries, and surprising findings, this groundbreaking guide reveals the strategies and tactics that separate the winners from the losers. Power is a force that can be used and harnessed not only for individual gain but also for the benefit of organizations and society. Power, however, is not something that can be learned from those in charge....

    Story

    "Different" is probably only of interest to people involved in marketing.

    Through a variety of examples author Youngme Moon illustrates that breaking the rules of conventional marketing wisdom is often the right path for companies to follow. All too often marketers and senior management aim for the big middle, but in markets where the middle is already reasonably well served, this is often a mistake. Instead, radical positionings can be far more effective. For success in the marketplace, it doesn't matter how many people think your product is okay. What matters is how many people love your product. Moon describes and gives examples of ways this can be achieved by breaking various rules of marketing, such as taking what may be considered a product's weakness and exaggerating it and promoting it as a positive feature; whereas conventional marketing wisdom would dictate playing down the negative attribute and focusing on other attributes.

    If you're a marketer, this is a great read which may stimulate your marketing thinking.

  • The Charisma Myth: How Anyone Can Master the Art and Science of Personal Magnetism

    "I'm glad I listened to it"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Periodically I try to throw a self-improvement book into my mix of books. I don't always review these books because it doesn't seem fair to rate them the same way I do all the other books I read- based on their entertainment value. They aren't "page-turners", and I can put them down. Since this is now the sale book of the day I will throw out my two-cents on it.

    The author is very knowledgeable, and presents a lot of new, useful information. I plan to listen to this book again in the future because it does contain a lot of ideas I believe can make a difference in my life. It seems like many self-help books have one or two good ideas, and they keep going over them again and again for the duration of the book. That is not the case here, Cabane's ideas don't repeat, and the stories and examples she discusses make the book fun to listen to.

    If this topic sounds interesting to you, I would really recommend listening to this book.

    I love audible because I seldom have time to sit down and read a book, but when I do have time to read I want to make the most of it. I treated this book differently than most I listen to. I sat at my desk with the provided printout and "went to school". The book has lots of activities it asks you to do. By the end of this short book I did improve my speed, but more than that I learned what things I need to keep improving if I want to read significantly faster. I believe this book was a very good investment of my time.

    This is not really a book, it's more like a 1-hr podcast. I bought it during a sale for only a couple dollars.

    I went into this knowing it was short, and cheap, and as such I thought it was very good. I think the author gave some compelling reasons to better organize my time to maximize the valuable morning hours. I was looking for a little motivation and this book provided it.

  • How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big: Kind of the Story of My Life

    "A very fun self-help book"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Scott Adams' story is a great one, and the majority of his advice is very solid. I loved his advice on diet and exercise, and laughed out loud many times throughout the book. This book is far more interesting and enjoyable than most self-help books. The only reason I gave it four stars was that some of his ideas were a little too far out there in my opinion, especially about the power of affirmations to actually change the future, even where it wasn't related to his actions. Although, in his defense he admits it seems strange, he just tells how this concept played out in his life.

    I think most people, like me, don't read self-help books with the intent of completely emulating everything the author says, but rather to find a few nuggets that can be implemented in our own lives. If you are looking for an entertaining book that can also give you ideas to improve your own life, I highly recommend listening to this book.
