Before this one i had listened to 50 self-help classics, it was good, but this one was great!
While i did not enjoy all 50 there is atleast 50%-75% of books that i will be looking into further.
For those of you who have never done the 50 classics series it's like cliff-notes for 50 books in that genre.
I think one reason i liked this one so much:
1. Great book selection
2. Great info (notes) on the books
3. Had some up-to-date books (in the year 2000's)
Overall if your looking to make more money and have prosperity in the future this is a GREAT place to start, make sure you have a note pad with you!
p.s. i'm now working on 50 Psychology classics
Bottom line: this is a great book with REAL WORLD applications that can be used not just in negotiations but in ANY human interaction.
I wasn't sure about this book at first, but it had a lot of great reviews so I gave it a shot... I was first frustrated with the book because it would tease a lot of info or revisit points already covered and/or seemed 'obvious'.
Getting deeper in the book it started to make sense. A lot of the things this book covers seem pretty obvious but it works, I recently found this out:
I was having some major issues with a 'big bank' and they refused to reverse fees. After my wife spent over two days on the phone with them unsuccessful, I used some of the tactics in this book... took 15 minutes, and done -
I'm now looking at more opportunities to utilize this information. I've read at least 4 different books on negotiation and another 4 on persuasion along with my BA in psych etc; this is a great book with REAL WORLD applications that can be used not just in negotiations but in human interaction.
*You can read my many other reviews, I give my honest opinion of the books I get here - I would hope you do the same ;) Thanks for reading.
I'm not really into "stats" but this book was interesting all the way through and I found plenty of gems.
I would suggest the UNABRIDGED version (I tend to get those when available).
If you liked Predictably Irrational (different Author and subject... but something feels "similar"), then you will like this one also.
Some great financial advice... small things can make a difference.
