    Negotiation is part of every human encounter, and most of us do it badly. Whether dealing with family, a business or diplomacy, people often fail to meet their goals in every country and context. They focus on power and “win-win” instead of relationships and perceptions. They don’t find enough things to trade. They think others should be rational when they should be dealing with emotions.

    Story
    If you could sum up Getting More in three words, what would they be?

    Think of them. Meaning think of the other person as the most important party. It will guide your dialogue.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The story of a woman getting a better outcome in a negotiation at work. It was closest to my current situation and the motivation for reading this book.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Cashman – was your favorite?

    n/a


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Getting More?

    Obviously better negotiation. But his examples are just what I needed to help me apply the tips and techniques. He tells you both parties concerns and how they were met. I loved it! It's lengthy so you can imagine how much information is stuffed into this book. I can't stop bookmarking!!


    Any additional comments?

    The best book on negotiation and a great companion to How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. Full of modern and recent examples!

    What made the experience of listening to Why Does He Do That? the most enjoyable?

    The thoroughness of the information. He left no type or scenario untouched.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was the type of abuser I've experienced. Being able to identify him as such and have an better understanding of how he thinks and what I can do to get out was empowering.

    Not that I know of.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not sure this would be a great film per say but God it would be great if it could be made into some sort of educational video for teens. That would be awesome!

  • The Laws of Manifestation: A Consciousness Classic

    Story
    (6)

    Over 30 years ago, a small band of people began an intentional community called Findhorn. They lived by applying principles of attracting to oneself, through love, whatever materials, energy, or help were needed to promote wholeness or further growth. David Spangler, who was one of those early residents of Findhorn, began writing down how those laws worked. In 1975, his writings were first published as The Laws of Manifestation. This long-unavailable book is now available again.

    What would have made The Laws of Manifestation better?

    I think the author should have clearly stated the steps or laws of how to manifest your interests. He states something then contradicts himself in the next paragraph.
    Sort of like "The ways to manifest are clear. First you must do A and B but don't do A then B or you will lose the power and cause havic in your life." See nonsense! I was confused the whole time and had to keep rewinding thinking maybe I zoned out and didn't catch a critical part. But no the author just made every phrase, sentence, and story seem vital and mysterious. It wears you out!


    Has The Laws of Manifestation turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not at all. I love self-development but unfortunately you get a few who talk in circles and blame the reader if you get no results or don't understand him.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes though a bit fast in ways.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really. A few insightful sentences but not worth the time invested.


    Any additional comments?

    I had high hopes for this book. While the things I wish to manifest are material, this author seems to bash material wealth and "stuff" as a bad thing to request from God. He suggests that my so-called "personality mind " is selfish and wrong for desiring material wealth and manifestation, stating that these things aren't what we need to be requesting. We should request things that are more so need and wants for the good of the group. I think if you want to manifest something you should examine why you would like it and what you would do with it. I agree it's important not to be selfish wanting material things, and that what we want only manifests if it's good for everyone involved in the process. For example getting a nice watch or a better house isn't only beneficial to the individual it's good for those who work to make the home or product it's good for the people who admire the beauty of the item also. This material item may be someone's inspiration to start a business which benfits millions of people bringing them wealth and happiness as well as to those invoved. Thereby justifying his theories on the laws of manifestation.

    With regard to the word use and structure of the collection of lectures and material, it was sooooo difficult to get through that it's taken me two weeks to even barely understand the begining intro of the laws (which isn't in chapter 1 by the way). Such a waist of time for the average person even slightly enlightened person.

    What I gathered from the book is that "higher thinking" means that you shouldn't want to have the things you wish and dream for , just the feeling that you have them, the essence.. and that's just silly.

    These 100 eye-opening ways to create wealth are drawn from the author's successful careers, with many touching personal stories as well as stories and examples from the hundreds of clients these master coaches have advised. This book is chock full of ways to make money, deepen life's pleasure, increase personal wage-earning power, and start fresh entrepreneurial ideas right at home.

    Story
    Where does 100 Ways to Create Wealth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    100 Ways is one of my favorites to listen too because each item number gives you guarenteed useful points. It is in the mid to low rating for the speaker because he's so boring after a while. At some points I got annoyed and thought "alright enough with the story move on dear."


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 100 Ways to Create Wealth?

    I appreciated that he quoted some of my favorite authors like Napoleon Hill and Florence Scovel Shinn. It made me respect is content more too, knowing that he was familiar with these authors.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    No he was very dry and his inflections were barely noticable. Think Ben Stein voice... and it only gets worse! You have to listen a couple times to pick up some points. I expected it to be like Intro, Main Point, Example/Story, with his inflections indicating when something was important. It took repeating it to pick up these parts.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Heck no! Too dull although excellent and valuable points were made. Narration is too rough.
