  • Just Listen: Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Mark Goulston
    • Narrated By Walter Dixon

    You’ve got a business colleague who’s hostile...a client who’s furious...a staffer who’s deeply cynical—how do you get people to do what you want in tough situations like these? In Just Listen, veteran psychiatrist and business coach Mark Goulston reveals the secret to how to get through to anyone, even when productive communication seems impossible.“Here's the challenge,” Mark says.

    Joseph says: "Not for everyone"
    "Great information and interesting"
    What did you love best about Just Listen?

    Just Listen held my interest--it combines physiologic reasons for why we behave and react the way we do, and then it offers a lot of examples and illustrations. The practical advice and techniques are usable and helpful. I immediately put some of the techniques to work!

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Just Listen?

    I enjoyed many of the stories--from the hostage situation to the executive preoccupied with his wife's biopsy. The narrator is compelling, using good voice inflection and emotion.

    Have you listened to any of Walter Dixon’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not. Mr. Dixon's narration was as good as any I have heard.

    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    There are many ideas that I will use. I have already used the one about telling an employee that I should improve his environment to incentivize him to work harder. I would also like to start using the

    Any additional comments?

    It was interesting that many of the techniques are similar to those in Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People!

  • Your Brain at Work: Strategies for Overcoming Distraction, Regaining Focus, and Working Smarter All Day Long

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 42 mins)
    • By David Rock
    • Narrated By Bob Walter
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Meet Emily and Paul: The parents of two young children, Emily is the newly promoted VP of marketing at a large corporation while Paul works from home or from clients' offices as an independent IT consultant. Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. Just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task.

    Lindblad says: "An amazing insight to the brain"
    "Brain food for thought"
    Any additional comments?

    This book used two fictional characters, Paul and Emily, to illustrate more effective ways of interacting with others in a day's work. I like to know rationale for how I should approach situations, and this book provides it. By relating the brain's physiologic functions to each scenario, I have a reason for why certain approaches work. The only aspect that I did not like is how the author tries to liken the situations and the brain to a play--referring to the director and actors. However, the scenarios are very practical--I bought this for an employee who works for me.
