I would say this is the bottom of the list of Maughan short stories. They are OK, but not memorable. It has been a week since I listened to them, and if you asked me what they are about I would have to say I don't remember.
Of course. When he is great he is great. But not here.
Sorry, can't remember
The narrator is beyond excellent. What more can I say?
Hard Times, Tale of Two Cities, and so forth
His change of voice as he spoke each character made it a lot easier to follow the story. He is not just a narrator, he is an excellent actor. I can't praise him highly enough
No, it is too precious to take in one sitting. Also two long 16 hours I think
Of Dickens's many masterpieces, this is my favorite.
Not from Goulston
HIs anecdotes. They lacked the ring of truth. My perception is that he made them up. Hard to believe he is speaking to a high level executive and just by asking in a question the executive is brought to tears, saying he is distaught because his son, or mother, or wife, blah, blah, blah is disturmbed, or drunk, or dying or whatever.
One anecdote after the other than I confess I cannot believe.
His great insight is no insight at all. He could have taken his case right out of Dale Carnegie's book How to Win Friends and Influence People. Actually Carnegie's book is the far better of the two.
I was not able to finish this. It is pure pap, trivial, unbelievable, and of little value. Read Carnegie;s book instead.
He did a good job, especially considering the material he had to work with.
All his anecdotal stories. There were none of them believable.
Save your money. Don't buy this book
Maltz's original book is a masterpiece. Sadly Kennedy wrote a new version which is much longer. He has dumbed down Maltz's book. Don't bother to get this book.
Just get the original Pschocybernetics and study that. It is loaded with gems.
Kenney's addition is loaded with trash.
The performance is fine. The content is a disgusting dumming down of Maltz's masterpiece
