  • "Still thinking about this book... m..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I can honestly say that this book really makes me think about my actions and forces me to plan ahead. Months after reading it, I am still trying to apply the principles of this book into my life. I see some reviews that state, "it is the same old material", but I do not know anything about negotiating and I found this book to be excellent in the presentation of the material and on the logic behind what the brain thinks of it. For example, the brain thinks that it is a form of manipulation, but in actuality it is more of a win-win situation. I never saw it that way and it makes sense logically. I probably won't go as far as some of the people in the book (ie: the guy in the eyeglass store went too far, in my opinion). After "reading" it once, the following important points stuck with me months later: find the decision maker, make a human connection, talk calmly, and that a little research goes a long way. You may not get everything when using these principles, but you will get more (the name fits the book perfectly) when you do!

    Negotiation is part of every human encounter, and most of us do it badly. Whether dealing with family, a business or diplomacy, people often fail to meet their goals in every country and context. They focus on power and “win-win” instead of relationships and perceptions. They don’t find enough things to trade. They think others should be rational when they should be dealing with emotions.

  • "This is the story of TOMS"

    Story

    This is the story of how TOMS (the shoe company with a purpose) got its start and how it is run. Truly an interesting story with some examples of how other companies with a purpose got started. This is not a how to guide, rather, it is Blake's story. The narration was not the best. I was just being read, without feeling or emotion (think back to reading aloud in school). Which was kind of a bummer for an inspiring book.

    What matters most to you? Should you focus on earning a living, pursuing your passions, or devoting yourself to the causes that inspire you? The surprising truth is that you don’t have to choose—and that you’ll find more success if you don’t. That’s the breakthrough message of the TOMS One for One movement. You don’t have to be rich to give back and you don’t have to retire to spend every day doing what you love. You can find profit, passion, and meaning all at once—right now.

  • What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast: And Two Other Short Guides to Achieving More at Work and at Home

    "Annoying, but worth the listen"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I was ready to write a snarky review of "What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast: A Short Guide to Making Over Your Mornings - and Your Life" (2013) - until I listened to the third book. I liked that so much, I went back to the beginning and listened again, ignoring what annoyed me.

    This audible collection of three short books by Laura Vanderkam on time management. The first is the Breakfast book (Audible Ch 2); the second, "What the Most Successful People Do on the Weekend: A Short Guide to Making the Most of Your Days Off" (Audible Ch 6) and the third, "What the Most Successful People Do at Work: A Short Guide to Making Over Your Career" (Audible Ch 11).

    The Breakfast book started out with an idea that I found immediately helpful: exercise in the morning, because later in the day, you may not have the willpower and other things might come up and take your time. That's not a new idea, but Vanderkam presented the reasons in a way that resonated with me. Finally. That's why I kept listening. (And let's face it, I'm sure not getting to the gym after a long drive home.) I also liked her idea for breaking bad habits: find friends that will honestly watch you, and if you fail, your penalty is donating to an organization you don't believe in. An example: donate to Karl Rove's PAC if you are a card carrying member of the ACLU.

    The Work book had some very helpful ideas for structuring work to be more productive, and they were beyond the adages like turn off the e-mail and do the heavy work when you are most productive. Vanderkam talks about how to identify when your clients are going to need you; how to delegate work and encourage team members to develop their management abilities; and how to take breaks that enhance your creativity and ability to do your job more effectively.

    I didn't like how Vanderkam kept mentioning 168 hours, how time can never be recovered, etc. After a while, I started to feel 'I Must Be Doing Something Meaningful All the Time'. That's pressure no one needs.

    And now, for the reason I was going to snark: it's nice that Vanderkam lives on the east coast with fabulous daily train service; works from home; is married; has friends over for dinner Sunday nights; ran through her pregnancies; and just finished a marathon without ever running more than 35 miles in a week because she did other exercises. And about her four hour runs on Saturdays - that's nice, but someone has to pick up the dry cleaning, grocery shop, take the kids to games, clean the house . . . And I'm a single mom! I could relate to Sheryl Sandberg (Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead (2013)) and even the fictional heroine in Allison Pearson's 2003 book "I Don't Know How She Does It: The Life of Kate Reddy, Working Mother" but I couldn't relate to Vanderkam personally. I am glad I took the time to listen to what she said - literally, since she's the narrator.

  • What Every BODY Is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent’s Guide to Speed-Reading People

    "Let Me Hear Your Body Talk"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    One of the first books I listened to on Audible was Joe Mavarro and Marvin Karlins' "What Every Body is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent's Guide to Speed-Reading People" (2012). It was so long ago that I hadn't started writing reviews, but that was fortunate with this book. I've been using some of the techniques described in the book for 18 months, and they work. I wouldn't have known that when I finished the book.

    I am a civil trial attorney, and I long relied on gut feeling and intuition when I picked a jury. In other words, just dumb look. This book gave me the ability to know, with some basis, whether a jury liked my client or the opposition, and whether I was effectively advocating my client's defense. Once, in a memory seared sharp, I completely torqued a juror off, which I realized by her flared nostrils and lips pursed together to nonexistence. I was able to dig out of that situation.

    This isn't the key to picking a perfect jury, but it helps. It's like knowing a secret code.

    I occasionally listen to the book to refresh my techniques. The book teaches how to speed read people, but learning the techniques takes a lot of time, patience, practice and feedback - when you can get it.

    I'm giving the book an overall 4 because it is so useful, but it's a 3 on the story. Despite the exciting topic, it's pretty dry and academic. The narration is a three, too. It sounds more like a business seminar than a narration.

    I want to mention that "What Every Body is Saying" and Pamela Meyer's "Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception" (2011) really builds on Navarro's techniques. Listen to them consecutively, and it's like a college psychology course.

  • Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go To Work

    "What if there’s a Psychopath in the Next Cubicle?"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    In 2011, Simon Baron-Cohen published “The Science of Evil: On empathy and the origins of cruelty.” That book discusses psychopathy in detail, and the organic reasons someone may lack empathy. Autism is probably the most common reason, but psychopathy - which Baron-Cohen convincingly argues can arise from congenital or traumatic reasons - is the scariest. Autistics generally don’t blend in, and often lack the social skills to progress in a corporation. Psychopaths can fit in, and often do. Worse, psychopaths, unlike autistics, may enjoy hurting people.

    Dr. Robert D. Hare and Dr. Paul Babiak’s 2006 “Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go to Work” provides tools to identify psychopaths in the workplace. The common mythology is that psychopaths are compulsive serial killers, but that is definitely not the case. Bernie Madoff, the mastermind of the biggest Ponzi scheme uncovered in US history (in 2008), meets Hare and Babiak’s definition of a psychopath. Madoff ruined so many lives, including his own son’s (Mark Madoff committed suicide in 2010), but he has never been accused of even throwing a punch - much less pulling a trigger.

    Hare and Babiak provide guidance on how to deal with psychopaths. The best recommendation is to just get away from the psychopath - as you would from any dangerous snake. That’s not always possible - the economy is terrible, a move may not be possible, and the psychopath may be your child’s parent - or your own parent.

    Babiak is actually listed as the first author of “Snakes in Suits”, but Hare is actually one of the pioneers who identified psychopathy as a mental disorder. Hare developed ‘The Psychopathy Checklist’, which is widely used to diagnose criminal offenders.

    “Snakes in Suits” is an interesting, thoughtful book, and a reminder that while most of us are “neuro-typical” (in Temple Grandin’s [author of 2013’s “The Autistic Brain] parlance), there are people who think differently and may never be able to empathize.

    The narration was good, and kept me engaged.

  • Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception

    "To Tell You the Truth . . . (not so much)"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    According to Pamela Meyer each person, on average, is subject to 200 lies - a day. I was astounded – I don’t see 200 people a day. Some days, I only see my family and my co-workers in the small branch office I work at.

    Where are the lies? I started thinking about it: it happens when several of my Facebook friends ask to “Add my birthday.” They’ve been duped by an advertiser seeking personal information, and it gets passed along. The lies are in the ads I get to enlarge a certain body part. The products can’t work – I don’t even have the requisite body part. The lies are on CNN, Fox News, during interviews of people later found guilty of horrible crimes. And there are white lies I hear, when I ask my son or daughter how school was, and they say “fine” to deflect me from asking about an Algebra or Physics test they may have tanked. Sometimes, I’ll never find out things weren’t really “fine” – the test turned out well, and I’ll chalk the crankiness caused by stress for teenage hormones.

    People lie, and Meyer’s book is a great guideline for realizing when that happens. I am a litigator, and I learned a lot of the techniques she outlines by years of experience. For example, if someone uses the phrase “To tell you the truth,” what comes out next usually isn’t the truth. It might have a little bit of truth, someplace, but it might be a complete fabrication. If someone smirks while testifying, they are lying and expect a judge or jury is too stupid to catch it.

    I wish this book had been available 20 years ago.

  • "I'm glad I listened to it"

    6 of 6 helpful votes

    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.

    What if charisma could be taught? For the first time, science and technology have taken charisma apart, figured it out and turned it into an applied science: In controlled laboratory experiments, researchers could raise or lower people's level of charisma as if they were turning a dial. What you'll find here is practical magic: unique knowledge, drawn from a variety of sciences, revealing what charisma really is and how it works. You'll get both the insights and the techniques you need to apply this knowledge. The world will become your lab, and every person you meet, a chance to experiment.
