Not sure there are some concepts I would have liked to make notes
No. Some of the stuff he wanted to be funny was not funny to me but really corny. I could have done away with the sexual innuendo. Definitely not funny.
good concepts could have been more direct. Then again for a personal presentation it might have been ok. I read it back and forth to work and it just was, at times, hard to follow.
These type books are my new infatuation and this is arguably the best one I have listened to yet. It probably helps that I have listened to so many books of this nature but I really liked the way this gentleman explains things. My honest opinion is that most anyone would enjoy this one.
Useful, adaptable, most-read
I can't pick one part of the book that was not useful for busy ppl
this book gives wonderful insight into the ways that we commonly make mistakes in our reactions to situations and it gives helpful advice on how to change the way we handle those situations. i found the format of the book extremely useful where the author gives an example with a typical (yes you are probably doing it this way) response and then revisits the same anecdote with the preferred response. Highly recommended is a bit of an understatement.
the useful advice and understanding gained from listening
he is THE best narrator I have listened to so far. clear, has life in his voice, never annoying
Yes! Extremely helpful and insightful.
Recommending this book to everyone I know. Seriously.
I felt like the narrator's voice is kind of boring and put a lot of stress while listenining.The book is good but I will rate the audio book 3/10
Love listening to everything in science, astronomy, neuroscience, education and creativity.
David Rock has written an excellent book that consists of solid neuroscience examples and cute analogies that is neatly tied to real world examples about how brain responds to different office situations. I have a reasonable neuroscience background and thoroughly enjoyed his description about various brain areas and how they function. With these insights it becomes much more easy to apply various strategies to excel in office environment (and school or other competitive environment). The speaker was quite pleasant to listen after initial adjustment period. A MUST listen title.
The audio was almost meditative at times. I found it most useful when starting the work day to listen to a section and apply the techniques throughout my day and week when applicable.
The nuances of insight in how we react, what we say and don't say, and at what time is one of the finer points of having successful or failing interactions with the ever interesting human condition. I found that the detailed approach to examples and case scenarios while at times pedantic and plodding, help simplify complex interaction issues that everyone goes through. The backing science behind it all just helped bolster the understanding of how it all ties together to make or break your everyday communications wherever you go...
Perhaps I've read or listened to a few too many of this sort. It was fine but nothing new or rather different. I often listen to audio a few times or check my own notes on books that inspire thought, or new perspective and idea, I began listening to this one again. I didn't, or couldn't. the 3 stars is for effort.
No for the reasons above
I am not a big one for self-help books, but this book is very helpful in the way it not only sheds light on the science behind brain function, but also offers useful tips on how to apply that insight on a daily basis. It keeps the science simple and the examples relevant: we all face the daily challenges that the author's principle characters encounter. He shows us why we succumb to fuzzy thinking and offers a way out of the vicious cycle of self-defeatist behavior. Very worthwhile!
Honestly my life changed because of this book...specially the labeling technique helped me leave some unwanted habbits...it was one of the best books i have read on the subject...a big thanks to the author for this masterpiece.
I listened to the book twice...specially the part about how to avoid bad habbits
He was nice...i am not into reading so cant say
Change your life :)
No just tell the author he is a genius :)
