Every book is worth considering. It's the kind of consideration on what to do with the book that differs.
You have what it takes to shine, but sometimes find yourself falling flat? I thought I had to work extra hard and go through struggles to achieve my goals, until I got this book. I realized that altering my approaches just a little, with the concepts mentioned in this book in mind, helped me get ahead more.
As a self-proclaimed nerd, I felt that this book spoke to me. It provides practical advise dressed up in nerdy concepts (leveling up, character sheets etc.) which makes it fun to look at the grind.
If you ever wondered how the media gets its news, and how easily someone with the resources can manipulate them, this is the book for you.
Influencer is not the book that you might think it is. If you are looking for something on how to become a change agent then this book is for you.
This book is very well researched by its Authors, they include many examples to support the concept they are talking about; Mainly how to influence change, which is broken up into different strategies and each chapter focusing on one of them. So many examples are included hence the 8 and a half hours.
The plus side of this audio book is that if you are someone who is interested in understanding people better, or you work with people, especially psychologists then this audio book is for you. Some of the stories used as examples where a certain strategy was implemented and worked were interesting to know of, some I had heard of before but not in detail.
However on the downside the book is long and can get a bit boring dragging on and on, I reached a point where I just wanted it to finish but I spend almost 1 hour going to work and 1 hour coming back so I had the time to go through the entire book. I know some of you will not be able to.
All in all the good content (especially the real world examples used) out weigh the one negative of this book, that its too long.
So if you are someone who wants to learn strategies to aid you in influencing change on an organization or community level then you will appreciate this book and what it teaches you. I have an interest in psychology so there you have it why I did not rate this book less than 4 stars.
My recommendation to who ever is thinking of getting this audio book is don't, rather buy the book and read it at your own pace.
