This book provides a great perspective on the modern "cognitive revolution". It does not make predictions, rather it demonstrates the potential.
Yes, as long as it is a different narrator
His tone was dark, emphasizing the wrong words, and didn't convey emotion. It sounded like a synthesized text to speech.
Please redo this audiobook with some other narrator! I just couldn't get past that.
Right about the middle
The content is very good. It demonstrates the various perspectives we and our co workers take when interacting with one another.
The main narrator is very good. However, the sound affects, secondary narrators, and intro/outro to every chapter is very annoying. This made me excited to be done with the book, even though I wanted to take in the content.
Vito J. Pandalfo: Listen to me!
It is a fictional story where wait disney guides a new ceo through establishing organizational health. I doubt the readers of this book are children or not intelligent enough to listen to a unifying theory. Get rid of the quasi fictional anecdotes and present an intelligent framework!
Yes, the narration was good.
The fictional ones. This really should be a meta analysis of historical business practices in regard to organizational health.
If you're new to organizational psychology, this may summarize some of the modern ideas. But if you are an intellectual who has read a free boss on the subject, don't bother.
This book did a great job of allowing me to understand "why nations fail" It presents a logical and intelligent framework for viewing social history, without making specific predictions (save for a couple on China). Well worth the listen, even though for me, and 18 hour book needs to be done marathon style (1.5 weeks) or it will take a month or more to complete.
Illustrative, synopsis, narrative
The book does a nice job of portraying a cohesive image of the current understanding of social neuroscience
The book takes some narrative liberties in interpreting research. Much if the evidence and research in this field is isolated and incomplete. The author takes a few unjustified leaps in his implied understanding.
NOTE: cognitive and social neuroscience is a very young field, we do not have as complete or concrete understanding as the author implies.
Yes, it is a good reminder of how to conduct yourself. I am glad it is not longer
Maybe, I would be weary he would reference anecdotes rather than cite evidence and research.
Definitely higher in terms of how I will use the content. Keeps me thinking lean.
The story line was pretty good, but could have been more compelling.
