Overall it is a good listen. The authors calls his tips "secrets". Every time I read or hear somebody call something a secret that ridiculous book of the same name comes to mind. So yes I would chance that.
His insights are not great specially if you read good books about sales before. But the authors wraps them well in a psychological frame.
In chapters 2 and 3 the authors describes Behavior Styles and Core Values, he describes each of them briefly and them proceeds to explain how they interact. But he fails to explain how we can figure out who fits into each category, which would help a lot. Instead the author hints that we need his professional advice on that. Meaning extra service and money on his pocket of course.
The best "secret" of the book is definitely the best one "It's all about me". But I'll the details for who listen to this book.
It's was. It's an eye opener but don't expect that all your relationships problems will disappear after reading this book.
If you liked this book you should read some sales books as well like the psychology of selling.
Very fun to listen - the main character, Emperor Mollusk, is certainly one os the best villains around.
A bit cliché - the domination of the universe.
The narrator is very good at creating different voices for every character.
Haven't finished the book yet to say if the sinister Brain is going to control the universe.
There are about 8 or 9 different guided meditations, one in each chapter, making it very easy to switch between them. These guided meditations are short, about ten minutes each and are an ideal listen during your day, when you are waiting in lines or while driving - just don't follow the narrator advice to close your eyes and you'll be fine ;)
I'm listening to this book almost every day and I can already notice the difference in my mood.
this is an incredible book about meditation in general and a new way of seeing the world as it is not as a construction of your self. I recommend this listen to everyone who is like me always anxious for no reason, like the world is about to end at any instant.
I'm planning to listen to it many times, probably two or three times a year.
The first thing I realized when I started listening to this book was that it was different from most other self-help change your mindset book. I have heard the main points the author expresses somewhere else but he is able to put it all in a new perspective. Even if you listen to NLP books, the power of your subconscious mind and from authors like Abraham-hicks, you should pick this book up.
Why “the secret” never worked? It’s because you can’t fool your subconscious mind into believing something unless it already believes in it. All the suffering is ego created, a beast that lives in the past or in the future completely ignoring the now. Live the now, the past is gone, and the future does not exists.
This book is just a big collection of tips on making friends. There was nothing I could call groundbreaking, not even innovative for that matter.
The author seems to be someone who read how to make friends and influence people and decided to make it shorter and more "wired". The last third of the book is all about how to become part of an online community.
I've always been curious about hypnosis and NLP but everytime I got around to reading a book about the subject I always got bogged down with so many details and difficult language, so I always assumed It was hard and not for me.
After I listened to this book everything changed, NLP is very different from hypnosis and this book opened my mind to so much usefull stuff that I recommend this book for everyone, From teens to elderly people, it can significantly improve your life quality if you start changing what is inside your head.
There is nothing new here. This book really won't change your life, is superficial. Maybe a psychology student would find something useful, but it does not give you any sound advice and the cover and title are deceptive.I won't give one star because at least the book is to the point.
If the author would at least talk about something you can do to overcome the self defeating behavior as the cover suggests it would be much much better. Just knowing how people go on self defeating behavior won't change much.
This book really surpised me, vert interresting content, no bull****, but the thing I enjoyed the most was the narrator's performance, it feels like you are having a personal lecture on sales by the author. Which is very close to the truth.
Definitely no, there is so many good tips you have to listen in bits at a time and reflect on them, a second and this listen are advisable too.
The main points I got from this book were Speed and ease, and being the single point of contact with the customer. Whoever listen to this book will undestand what I mean.
Ever since i read fooled by randomness, I've read and recommended all of Taleb's books. He is the master of anti bulls*h*i*t.
The most memorable moment of Taleb's books are as usual his conclusions and afterwords. It is like listening to the wise Grandfather I never had.
When he explains his ideas on antifragility is also very interresting because the concept has been around all his previous books, but it is the first time he explains in a way I feel like I really get his point.
Taleb writes about what he wants to write about, he does not just say it as you listen his book you can feel he is not constrain about anything because he really say what is on his mind and curses very often
A few times it's gets boring when he rumbles on and on about the same subject, but his message is so universal that this could even be a philosophy book though I'm sure the author woudn't agree to that.
This book covers a lot of ground on economics. As I am a beginner on the subject I found this book very interesting. If I had had the printed version I'm not sure I'd have been able to go through the whole thing since it's a long book but the narrator did a fantastic job. Students of economics would find this book useful as well.
The first half of the book is mainly about concepts and explaining how things work on the market. The second half was way my favorite where the author destroys many of the fallacies we hear politicians talking. I wish everyone who votes would hear this book.
