Great short story. Great Audio. really easy to apply and understand. Would suggest to anyone that directs people and take ownership of there product.
I have yet to listen to something from Malcolm Gladwell that I did not consider excellent. Having dyslexia really makes this book a must read. For I was driving in my car to work listening to this book, was on the portion of dyslexia and had to pull off the side of the road for I started crying. The tears were hearing someone understood and be able to explain all that I’ve gone through in my life. I’ve never been able to put into words or understood truly my issues. For you ask a hearing impaired person or sight impaired person what is a here and what do they see what all they have heard and seen was nothing. Asking a dyslexic why do you read this, do you reverse letters, how are you not reading this correctly. Is the same thing of asking a blind person what they see. All I know is I would not be as successful as I am without being dyslexic, I do not believe I would have pushed myself or have gotten the support from my parents if it was easy. As Mr. Gladwell states in the book, I would not wish this on anyone but it disadvantage I do not see it as.
I consider myself a very successful architect, I specialize in hospitals. Very technically/complicated building, I’m considered a code expert which requires reading and understanding. I contribute my dyslexia to giving me the gift of understanding. Very difficult for me to read the codebooks, my comprehension level is high
Would I recommend this book absolutely YES would it be at the top of my list NO. “Start with Why” was great, this book is good. I think some of the lessons from start with why should have been applied by the author on this book. What I mean is, he seemed to ramble at different parts of the book. He spoke about respect and how it’s achieved, and how small things really do matter.
Ms Brown has comic relief as a great means of teaching. I have never laughed so hard and in learned so much at the same time. I truly felt very exposed while listening to this book. Four times now, and may want listen to it yet again.
most of the books I've listen to our self-help business development. I decided to take a break. This is an amazing book I want to reach out to every park ranger and thank them for their selfless non-recognized efforts. I did not realize this book was more about an individual until the end. The stories kept me engaged. I camp, I hike, I backpack I did not realize the potential of some of the dangers that were around me.
Haven't written many reviews, I felt compelled to write this, thank you very much for the book.
Really enjoyed this book, a lot of good knowledge and description on how to teach as well as give presentations that will be better perceived
The example of how to apply could have been deeper. the stories of true life people was GREAT
Totally amazed at how well and how much I got engrossed in reading this book. I physically had to stop myself and turn it off from time to time. It really makes you think about your everyday actions and how you make decisions
Wish I had this when I was much younger. Very good read/listen to. Would suggest it to anyone trying to lose some fat. I've implemented this for the most part and I am amazed on how full I feel all the time. I realize a lot of my eating is out of something to do. I am so glad I am not a smoker I would never be able to quit
I love this book and will pass it on. there are some many items in this book that need to be seen I wish there was a webpage that had these pages so I could print them out and study them.
