This is full of usable nuggets. I listen while driving, and was constantly bookmarking.
I will consciously not buy another book read by this narrator.
His inflection, tone, pace and rhythm is so pedantic and distracting that only the value of the words kept me listening.
There are many quizzes, and they were thoughtlessly read verbatim, i.e. Question one: and then the words, "Strongly disagree", "Disagree", "Neither agree or disagree", "Agree", "Strongly agree."
It's possible no one could repetitively read that ten times in a row, chapter after chapter, without stimulating mindless waiting for the next section.
This should have been modified for ears.
If you've already purchased this, push through. The content is worth it.
Exactly what to do, and why.
There are so many usable action items that I bought a hard copy for easy reference, and to loan. Last week I used something I learned to stimulate a new exercise for a workshop I teach every month, and for the first time, they got it! They got it! My cheeks were sore from grinning for three days! Brilliant, usable information.
Usable, memorable, information.
To do or not to do isn't a decision. Widen the question, think of 13 things to do in addition to, or instead of not doing.
This is Chip Heath and Dan Heath's third book. It's as valuable as the first. Can't wait for the fourth!
This book is on my A list. At least once a day I suggest a client read it.
The metaphor makes understanding principles automatic -- which is what the book is about: brilliant.
His pacing and inflection add interest without suggesting emphasis or importance.
Use more emotional reasons and fewer logistics to validate change communication.
Really enjoyed Made To Stick. Eager for their next book.
At two hours and five minutes (two-thirds of the way through the book) there still isn't any content. Just new jargon, "GemmelSchmertz"; multiple cliches, "the busier you are the busier you get"; and common maxims, "it's important to prioritize, to do what's important to you."
