It's great obviously I was referred like many others but unlike others audio books the readers
performance was good a little monotone but I don't mind and the stories used to explain the ideas are good but a little long winded and boring for the modern day listener in my opinion
good listen. I will definitely be listening to this book over and over again. next time I listen I will have a pen and notebook and take notes.
at first I thought... "what am I listening to..." by the end I felt I had to listen again, with more of an open mind, the things that are mentioned in this book are the life skills I feel kids should be learning at school but it's never too late to educate. so go ahead an read its a real easy listener as well. got me through some tough days that's for sure!!!
The book is filled with scores of stories that do not seem plausible. "I smiled at the cleaning lady on my way in to a sales meeting, I did not get the sale. I came back a few hours later and the cleaning lady had told the manager he should buy from me because I was nice, and I got double the order"... Most of them seem so made up.
I did, however, enjoy de book and I am applying all the principles I learned.
Maybe a revision is now in order, so that the examples reflect this century. Social media is a huge part of our lives, and I don't believe a " :') " is the same as a real one. I wonder if today's version would claim " I LIKED the cleaning lady's wall posting, and when I left, she tweeted about it a couple of times, and the manager logged in and submitted an order for twice the amount".
This book will help you understand how to go about in putting people first and how to make them feel good about themselves. After that is accomplished you will have accessed,a way to be heard, be understood, be recognized. A step in the direction that you will benefit from.
This book offers great approaches in dealing with others.
It does operate in ideal scenarios, neglecting certain negative interactions. I would be interested dealings with specifically unpleasant people, intent on being rude. Not everyone respects kindness and certain approaches taught in the book.
The complaint is a small one, generally this is a resource that will greatly improve interactions with most people.
This book offers insight to great principles that more people should consciously PRACTICE in their daily lives. Definitely something that I'll be listening to on a consistent basis to keep me mindful of how to be an effective communicator and reiterate leadership qualities...
I have read this book 7 times and continue to learn new ways in "How To Deal With People", I read this book for the first time 27 years ago, I should have done what they recommend in it, read this book once a month, my life would had been so much better, but there is never to late to start again, I love this book! I recommend it to anyone who wants to get ahead in life... Not enough say about it...fabulous reading!
