While there are some good ideas in the book, the author comes across to me as tooting his own horn a bit much. The stories he used to explain his points starred himself in the leading role. They didn't seem to be selected for their usefulness in getting across the point, but rather to illustrate his high regard for himself.
Especially troubling to me was a story about an issue he had with a female worker. He went on and on about how he mastered the situation, but there was very little evidence of awareness of what her experience was and her motivation for the action she took. I can't put my finger on it, but the story left me with a creeped-out feeling and questions about the self-awareness and other-awareness of the author.
William O'Neil is a maybe. Chris Ryan, definitely not.
A muppet. A five year old. Anyone. Please make him stop.
