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
If your willing to put in the work this book is going to push you in the right direction.
Any time a book starts off by saying it's not your 'average self help book' you know your in for an average self help book with re-hashed info. This started that way and quickly changed, this isn't a book that you can read and get a few ideas from. You have to be willing to put in some work and after that you will find yourself in a better place. I will admit there are a few spots I glazed over, but overall I was quite impressed with the delivery and structure along with the exercises included.
Well worth the read, I actually bought the hard copy for my wife to read (she doesn't like audiobooks lol)
*I'm a real person who writes real reviews on the books I get, if you don't believe me, check out my other reviews :) Thanks for reading
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.
