    Story

    It just so happens I am a grad student in a business leadership program in the midwest. Since we are off for the summer I was looking for something to help keep me from getting rusty, so I've been listening to this course while driving back and forth to work.

    I prefer the half hour format per lecture (my drive is about that length). While not as in depth as the individual courses I've taken so far, as one would expect the perspective is slightly different from those presented by my professors and the case studies are different from the ones we discussed in class giving me the opportunity to digest the content in a more nuanced manner.

    Definitely worth a listen!

    This expanded edition includes dozens of practical tips and case studies from readers who have doubled their income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book. Also included are templates for eliminating email and negotiating with bosses and clients, how to apply lifestyle principles in unpredictable economic times, and the latest tools, tricks, and shortcuts for living like a diplomat or millionaire without being either.

    Story

    If you are interested in bloated, self-promotional nonsense then this is the book for you.

    The book's meandering from one superficial anecdote to the next with an occasional sprinkling of oversimplified bullet points will make you think you are listening to a bad but semi-charismatic motivational speaker right before they start serving rubbery chicken and pulling people individually into rooms where they can engage in high pressure sales tactics to buy timeshares in Florida.

    Sigh.

    I can't believe I let someone talk me into getting this (banging head on keyboard).
