    This book is intended for purchase alongside Robert B. Cialdini's original book Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion. Why did 38 neighbors in New York City observe a woman's cry for help yet fail to respond to her murder? How do Boy Scouts and Hare Krishnas capitalize on humans' automatic responses? According to Robert B. Cialdini, PhD, author of the best-selling classic Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion, the answers lie in a basic understanding of human social behavior.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I do not know if I will listen all the way to the end. the first half was a discussion of other reviews of the book! Give me strength. Total waste of time so far.


    Has Influence in 30 Minutes - The Expert Guide to Robert B. Cialdini's Critically Acclaimed Book (The 30 Minute Expert Series) turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes, I bought 2 of these series. I will try #2. IF it is as bad I will return them both. Really a great dissapointment

    In David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, or cope with a disability, or lose a parent, or attend a mediocre school, or suffer from any number of other apparent setbacks. Gladwell begins with the real story of what happened between the giant and the shepherd boy those many years ago.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! Malcolm Gladwell Narrates and he is wonderful to listen to. The content is excellent and thought provoking.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of David and Goliath?

    I am about half way through and can not wait for my next car ride to listen further. The section on college selection criteria and results was quite interesting. I would recommend this to any parent or child in college selection decision mode!


    Have you listened to any of Malcolm Gladwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, Very good. As stated above, I am so glad he does the narration. I love listening to him speak, and the content is always interesting.

    Based upon his weekly Harvard Business Review column (one of the most popular columns on HBR.com, receiving hundreds of thousands of unique page views a month), 18 Minutes clearly shows how busy people can cut through all the daily clutter and distractions and find a way to focus on those key items that are truly the top priorities in our lives.

    Yes I would. This was a simple, logical, easy to follow approach to becoming more productive. I teach and coach productivity and recommend this book to all. Very clear and easy to follow.
