The fact that Patrick first writes in a fable enables you to connect with some of the issues that you face in your own meetings, and then the processes and working through them with "real" people who do exist with the same challenges in your own organisation enables you to grasp the concepts that Patrick is sharing with you at a realistic level. The book is neither too long or too short!
David is a good author, but a lousey narrator. Unless its pitch black and there are no visual distractions, David is very, very hard to listen to! Having bought his audio cassett many years ago, if I had looked and seen he was the narrator, I would have never bought the book!
David provides many fine details about his core subject
The same guy that Bryce Courtney uses. David has the same monotone, no infliction and toneality differences in his voice and a poor narrator
It does have a follow up book, An Eye for an Eye, I havent read it as yet
David, if you want ot sell more audio books, get someone else to Narrate!
Becasue Bryce is never predictable, nor is this story
Danny's Mum, I am sure you could write a book on Brenda alone
Great, as usual
No, the book was not centred around any "one" moment, the book had a number of these present
No doubt to hear messages throughout that I was too absorbed to hear the first time
There wasnt a "best" it was a story you wanted to learn from, and this meant listening to the end
No, first time
The "Journey" not the "Gym" (where we beat ourselves up)
Paul conveys such a compelling message within all of this book
Compelling to the End
You cant compare Bryce's work, why would you, he's a master story teller
Humphrey Bower would have to be the best narrator I have ever listened to, his ability to style the difference voices throughout his performance, really does add value to this book
I diid not know that it was the first book of 2. I actually read Finishing for the Stars first!
Once again, the simplicity and delivery of the message
Havent read anything comparable to what Lencioni dellivers in this book
Not necessarily, it is that I prefer to listen to books like these, and when they are this good, I then go and buy the book anyway
I just love the journey that Dan Millman takes us on with his books, I like the simplicity of his communication and more importantly the impact of his words. They're not "out there" like others in his field, his work is simple and congruent with this world I am living in!
The was the first of Patrick's books that I read, and the concept of telling stories to enable the reader to grasp the concept has been well articulated by Patrick. The book could fit into most environments where someone could identify with the "personnel" so well portrayed in this book understand the principles no matter what level you are in an organisation and apply them with success. A must read business book for anyone developing this suite of skills in the "Organisational World"
