    Story

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Overall

    This book suffers from several flaws, however, once you get into it, it is hard not to enjoy. First of all, the narrator doesn't fit the part. If you listen to the expertly narrated Game of Thrones, you will know what I'm talking about. Much of the book has a somewhat amateurish feel to it as well, such as the long winded metaphors and repetition used by the protagonist more often than is necessary. On the other hand, the story is engrossing. You're always wondering what will happen next. I will indeed be purchasing the second book. Hopefully, the author will have worked out some of the kinks.

    Everyone wants to be an influencer. We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence. For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters.

    This book had an immediate positive effect on my ability to influence change within my organization. I've listened to it twice now and I don't expect this to be my last.
