There is something in these bite size sales vignettes for everyone. I enjoyed the format and was able to go back and review some of the concepts.
Uh No characters here. But the episode on cold calling was excellent.
No comparison available
The entire book was well thought out but I have certain difficulties getting motivated and being disciplined so there were several sections on that subject that were well done.
Highly recommended for the modern sales professional.
No I think there are some technical chapters where the print version would be better. It was good to have the pdf as well.
I don't know of any other diet book to compare it with. But it is a life changer so perhaps "Younger Next Year"
So far I am trying the diet and not finding it too difficult. The book did advise about some of the withdrawal symptoms which actually happened. But now that I am over that I find that I am eating less and feeling good about not being a slave to wheat.
I think the author takes this story way too far for even a sci-fie junkie to enjoy. It is so far fetched it borders on being comical. The premise is taken way too far. I would scale it back and make it more conceivable. It is even too far out there for Nicolas Cage to portrait.
Peter could have made the ending less romantic. It was like some 1940s movie. Especially after such a overly dramatic climax. But maybe that is his intention; to get movie rights.
I thought he did a very good job and will search his other books.
Yes but not a block buster. If anyone would star in it would be Nicolas Cage. Hmm Nate Cage.
Tried too hard to be different and lost my interest.
I would be tentative about purchasing another book by the authors. There were many chapters that were too basic for what I was thinking I was purchasing.
I would have given us the sound bite of the examples given. For example when describing how composers change keys an example would have been better than simply stating the piece that some may or may not be familiar. Also listening to the scales would have been an improvement over simply stating that the major key sounds positive and goes TTSTTTS.
I think the book was trying to be too much like music for dummies and therefore used cute jokes to liven it up. They were not bad but a little personal. The use of instruments was sometimes a good addition, especially if you are a guitarist, but some others could have been used. I didn't hear a harp when they described its nature, which for a beginner would have been interesting.
This book did not inspire me to compose differently or experiment with new techniques, which is what I had hoped it would do.
If you are a beginner and want to obtain additional insight into basic music this book will be enjoyable. If you are anywhere beyond beginner you may find half or more of the book as uninteresting.
