I loved the book, and think it is a MUST to have, but I definitely suggest you by the hard cover so you can READ the book and get a real grasp on the step by step sometimes thought by the author...
I give it a 5 star, right up there with Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
what an amazing book. spans all religions, cultures, situations etc. so cool that the author himself reads it aloud. and does a great job at that. so we'll written. a fantastic read/listen for anyone. no one could read this and not take something away.
From what I've heard so far, he has been using broad and partial examples, examples that are too technical and hard to understand and no real implementation strategy (so far). I thought this would be a great second book after reading Dale Carneigie's How to Win Friends and Influence others. Nope. Bunch of jargon and over explanation. Sure this book may get better but this book has made two hours of impression and I'm not willing to give it the benefit of a doubt any further.
LISTEN TO THIS.
They should read in in schools. What grace and and eloquent insight to all of our needs. It really leaves a sense of purpose in our world and a guide to creating the most effective environment. I don't even have to right words, just listen to his.
And not a single moment of vanity or self promotion from the author throughout.
one of my annual listen - through. this year, still new lessons. highlight this time is understanding the difference between personality ethics and character ethics. I choose both, but place more emphasis on character ethics. lovely book. will routinely listen through for many years to come!
