    Overall

    I had very high expectations from this book. I had hoped to learn some useful techniques in improving my technique of posing questions. I was disappointed to find out that 90% of book only talks about the importance of asking questions. It would not be an overstatement that this 6 hour book can be summarized in less than 20 minutes.

    Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

    Joanna says: "A quest for dreams come true"
    "One of the greatest books ever"
    Overall

    This book is a must listen. No matter what are looking for, this will help. If you are looking for a good fable, it is that. If you are looking for a spiritual book, it is that. Just relax and listen. Don't over analyze. Before you even realize, it would have made a difference.

    This is a good read to understand Kotter's change theory with the help of a fable.

  • The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 45 mins)

    Story
    (809)

    In keeping with the parable style, Patrick Lencioni begins by telling the fable of a woman who, as CEO of a struggling Silicon Valley firm, took control of a dysfunctional executive committee and helped its members succeed as a team. Story time over, Lencioni offers explicit instructions for overcoming the human behavioral tendencies that he says corrupt teams. Succinct yet sympathetic, this guide will be a boon for those struggling with the inherent difficulties of leading a group.

    Mark says: "Clear Headed Guidance on Building Teams"
    "It is worth reading"
    Overall

    The best thing about the book is that it is not boring. It is written like a fable which makes it easier to follow. I however got the feeling that the story stressed on two dysfunctions (trust and conflict) more than the others. Don't expect to know how to build effective teams after reading this book but view this as more of a thought starter.

    No is perhaps the most important and certainly the most powerful word in the language. Every day we find ourselves in situations where we need to say no: to people at work, at home, and in our communities; because no is the word we must use to protect ourselves and to stand up for everything and everyone that matters to us. This indispensable audiobook will give you a simple three-step method for saying a Positive No.

    Sean says: "Truly applicable"
    "Don't underestimate the title"
    Overall

    This is an excellent book. A must read for everyone. Don't think this is just about how to say NO firmly. It is much more than that.

    Why did crime in New York drop so suddenly in the mid-90s? How does an unknown novelist end up a best-selling author? Why is teenage smoking out of control, when everyone knows smoking kills? What makes TV shows like Sesame Street so good at teaching kids how to read? Why did Paul Revere succeed with his famous warning?

    Zentaro says: "An interesting listen"
    "Don't waste your time"
    Overall

    Not sure why is this book a best seller. I couldn't afford to waste any more time after listening to it for 45 minutes. The author does not describe anyhting new. Moreover I didn't get a single idea which could be put to use.

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

    Jeremy says: "Even Better The Second Time"
    "One of the best"
    Overall

    "Made to Stick" is classified as a book on marketing by most websites. I think it is a mistake. This book is so simple and powerful that the ideas presented can ve used in almost any setting from home to board room. For anyone wondering "why do people not get it", this book has the answer.
