I read the authors' works before. Particularly reading this one after reading Influencer seemed as if I am reading the same. There are books which I read over and over again and I find every read as humbling as the previous one. But I didn't have the same feeling on this one. I couldn't latch on to the book for long.I was disappointed to have spent money on this one :-(
Perhaps my review would have been different if this was the first book I read.
I love Mr.Grenny's narration and wouldn't have asked for more.
This book truly defines the genre of self development. In this incredible book, the authors write in such a language that is very easy to understand, with background stories or parables to help deepen the understanding in even greater detail.
Favorite thing: There is no wishy washy magic fairyland twinklin toe magic formula to use in changing a bad habit (we all have them admit it, esp me.) I've been looking for that majestic formula or 1 easy solution to improve myself. Every single person is an individual. There is no person EXACTLY like you out there. The point; this book helps you to understand yourself better as a person. It's packed full of success stories, and imperative strategies for not just self development, but addiction recovery, or trying to lose wait, etc. There is also a website that has a code contained in the book packed full of information with tips, ideas, and strategies that you tweak everyday consistently, until you accomplish your goal!
Don't like: only thing; book is not long enough because it's so good.
This is my first rating ever and I never rate or care to rate books. Well that was until I ran into this one.
I've listened to it several times. These authors at least 4 other books & 3 of them I've listened to multiple times, bought the physical books, bought the e books & even took the course for the book!
Brian is an avid reader. He is interested in great stories and human behavior. His job is as a behavioral specialist in public schools.
I have not only used this information in this book to change me, but I have also equipped my own special education students with the skills needed for change. This book is a life changer! Read it! Take notes! Change!
Simple as possible review. If you want help changing things, habits, and your life; make this one of the set you should have. Listen twice, do the work. Just about like you'd expect it to be. Get it.
Many of the things are similar to other books I've read, but there a several gems of insight that I liked. Such as "distance and distraction" and "turn a bad day into good data"... Well worth listening too.
Worth the time spent listening to ways to improve oneself. Six sources of influence is worth the cost
