    Everyone wants to be an influencer. We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence. For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters.

    Ahmed says: "Not the book for everyone"
    "Painful to listen to"
    Overall

    Another book that takes other peoples research and uses it to prove things that we already know. Gladwell is the only who can do it and make it interesting this really hard to listen to.

    What do you need besides motivation and willpower? In Commit to Win, Heidi Reeder, PhD, unpacks over forty years of research by psychologists and economists to show that the key to reaching any goal, whether it’s to hit the gym more often or to finally quit that dead-end job, isn’t motivation, willpower, or determination. It’s commitment. Busting the myths most of us believe about commitment, Reeder shows that it all comes down to four variables.

    In this groundbreaking audiobook, New York Times best-selling author Steven Kotler decodes the mystery of ultimate human performance. Drawing on over a decade of research and first-hand reporting with dozens of top action and adventure sports athletes like big wave legend Laird Hamilton, big mountain snowboarder Jeremy Jones, and skateboarding pioneer Danny Way, Kotler explores the frontier science of “flow”, an optimal state of consciousness in which we perform and feel our best.

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

    This explains the mystery of top performance. We have all experienced a flow state but few of understood how to get into it and repeat it. This book shares the state of the art of mastering our state of mind.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to but it is a deep book that requires digesting and reviewing to get the most out of it.

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    S Prabhu says: "Excellent book; well adapted for the audio format"
    "One of the best books on Audible"

    Lots of fun to listen to and really makes you think.

    Overall

    The big idea is work harder??? Do you need to buy a book to know that? It is entertaining but get a comedy book if that is what you want. I checked the author out and he has not been a salesman in 20 years. He is just selling himself. I'm not buying.

    The Maverick Method is a powerful and unique selling method that provides the complete picture of how complex sales work. The Method has been researched, developed and practiced over a 20-year period. We have studied and modeled over one hundred of the most successful salespeople. Unlike other selling methods, the Maverick Method has been proven by salespeople on the frontlines of the most difficult selling environments imaginable.

    Story

    Far different then the tips and tricks sales books that flood the market place, this book is completely original. The Maverick Method takes a modeling approach and matches it to the terrain of the complex sale. The case studies and strategies are all based on real people who have outsold their competitors, which is incredibly valuable. With the focus of the book being that there is no one way to win a deal, it does not push that there is only one way to sell. The focus of the book is on advanced selling skills and strategies that I have not seen anywhere else, they are easy to learn and make perfect sense. Even if you are an A-Player with twenty years of experience you will be inspired by this book.
