I really appreciated the perspective on how sales roles and selling culture have shifted over time. There are often negative associations with professional salespeople, but this book makes it clear that influence skills are critical and we are all in the business of swaying decision-makers. I particularly liked Pink's focus on the shift from salespeople holding superior information to them needing to curate available data and recommend solutions for their clients. I see my sales team work through this daily, as our clients have the same or sometimes more data at their fingertips than we do.
This is a little long, but very well researched and performed. Catherine the Great was a very interesting person, both personally and in terms of what she accomplished for Russia. This really helped me get through some long commute hours - highly recommend!
The abridgment of this text is criminally short. Unfortunately, I bought this on my mobile phone and didn't see how short it was, or I would have known better. There isn't even enough content here for a Cliff's Note. In my opinion, it is extraordinarily irresponsible of Audible to be selling such an incomplete version of the text. Massie's books are great - this version does him a HUGE disservice.
The only good thing I have to say about this is that the reader's voice is good. Pronunciation isn't great, but tone is lovely. Otherwise, this is a total waste of money.
Yes. There are a lot of interesting tidbits about SNL and Fey's stint as Sarah Palin. It's great to hear all of these stories told in her own voice.
I got the most out of her "Rules for Improv" and the workplace - really insightful about how to collaborate and innovate in a group.
