Let the self-congratulatory opening serve as a warning to the overall structure of this torturous volume. The author has gained success hocking his neatly-packaged and wholly inoffensive theory of human behavior to human resources departments around the world.
I almost feel sorry for the multitudes of hapless corporate up-and-comers forced to ingest and even recite portions of this pseudo-scientific schlock. If you're looking for a slightly more academic version of "The Secret" this is the book for you.
The narration is also rather dull.
13 hours describing studies that show that having people skills is better than lacking them. Big surprise. The narrator was also terrible, he sounded like a robot.
I wish I could imbue this into the brain of every educator on the planet. Now to put it into further action in myself! :)
It is a classic book, with great insight.
I would prefer Daniel Goleman narrate.
It is extremely difficult to stay focused on the material because of the narrator.
This book should be a series of books dedicated to each aspect, self help, psychology, and educating. The combination of all this topics made me disinterested in 80 % of the book.
The content of the book was useful, but the reading was berry difficult to follow as it seemed to be ready a computer (though it was read by the author)
I had quite a few "aha!" moments with this book. learned a new thing or two and about myself. I will have to devour this one a few times for it all to sink in.
