We don't have to agree with evertthing Thomas L. Friedman and Michael Mandelbaum yet like the classic World is Flat this should spark conversations. I'm a proud parent of a 6th grade school teacher and and wish parents would read this. Todays Manhattan Project should be fixing our educational and vocational training. This book gives practical solutions in the changing world and hopefully American which ends I can WILL before flat world 3.0 is here and apathy stays the course for our next generation.
Yes! Open your mind and listen. You don't have to agree.
You may be pissed you will probably laugh or maybe be confused yet most of all will be smiling all the way through. This is a smart listen book where straight, right, middle or left will do something great. Help you think... a solid imho must listen! Thank you Dan and Audible.com.
Engage, passion, listen.
If you are new to sales you can learn the habits to never start. If you are an old geezer like me who is especially fortunate growing with the same company, there is useful advice in stop doing what you may be doing loosing progress.
Example of saying things not needed after close is agreed. Love the words, premature verbalization.
Mostly just samples. I like his approach. A good coach that is not yelling in eardrums and keeps you thinking after pause. Looking forward to hearing more business titles.
So What? Now What?
Have purchased many sales-helps mostly via Audible.com., fills time between business contacts: This book was recommended surprisingly as a suggestion on home page. Glad I clicked, half when in suggested title to my team and now want to recommened to serious listeners. Especially helpful grasping challenges new technology has given us. Enjoy the book and sound advice on being present stoping bad habits and shifting into neutral.
This year, my best listen yet. Overall a top10 which says a lot from a person who has been a member since 2000.
The Power of Pull. Sheryl Sandberg is a terrific example of someone with ready resources with passion to promote a needed message. Sure, she is a person of significant influence in tech field yet this book is on big time needed changes with practical advice. Great answers to think about and apply.
Not that I can remember although she is very good. I look forward to hearing her voice again. An easy clear voice which compares well with great listens in the past.
Almost, maybe three sittings yet finished easily in a couple days.
Thanks again Audible.com for a service that keeps getting better.
Simple, Direct, Practical.
Narration is excellent
The 2nd half
I will listen to this again for the practical advice of changing behavior by raising awareness. Like life which evolves even if one chooses to be listless, this book helps simplify choices and conflicts. Why do we keep doing the same thing? Listening to this book was like spending time with to a good friend. NOT judging yet guiding. The timing for me was good. Thanksgiving Day, Americans often share, reflect and appreciate. Day after, off to the races getting deals and pushing away. Strange beings we humans.
John Stossel clearly with unique simplicity puts holes in supposed well meaning government agendas. ??Those willing to open their mind with new ideas and listen without prejudice (right or left) can catch the bigger picture. ??We Americans need something better. ??Government works best when less complicated and less of. ??Let common sense and accountability set the standard and we get a bonus. A balance budget and more citizens living and enjoying the pursuit of happiness.
I have spent thousands of dollars as a long time member with Audible. This program under $3.00 when well listened will change lifes. Having the man himself speak earnestly explaing his passion is a beautiful thing. Thank you audible.com for providing a gift which is eaisly downloaded. Just listen, think and grow rich. Great things do and will happen.
Best book I've consumed since, Thomas Friedman's The World is Flat. Free download where Chris Anderson understanding of attention and ease of words explaining things sets him apart from many so called experts. Wow! and thank you Audible.com for distributing.
Usually I listen to Non-Fiction, if you are looking for a good story this is it. Narrator Adam Grupper does a wonderful job.
Lecture two is music to the ears for anyone interested in the revolution that is being shared around the world. Its more than technology its all about hope dream and todays reality. Our future looks great! This is the only time I have reviewed on Audible... as a seriouslistener thank your for making this available for everyone.
