Im a fan of Steve Jobs (not Apple). I think we can learn something from this man. All his achievements are no mistake. And the book describes various situations about what Steve did and what he would do.
If I have found useful recommendations to avoid boring meetings. But no, the book is full of useless tips that in the real world no one would apply. For example, remove the chairs of the meeting room. Verify the dimensions of the meeting room. Prepare for meetings (the day is full of meetings, and I should spend more time preparing for them?).
I have not read 1000 of books on meetings, but this one really sucks.
The end (which I didn't hear because it was too boring, I stop hearing it at the beginning of the last chapter).
All that is useless, that means, an important part of the book.
Interesting, applicable, relevant
The message. Start with why are you doing what u are doing. It means passion to do something and not just to be there "for the money"; start with why and things will be easier and people will follow.
The message is repetitive. He could have written in half the pages and still be relevant.
No one. The book contains no real story. All there is is "tell he truth". That's it, I told you the whole content of the book. Plus, the narration is really bad, don't know how audible permits this. Not always the author is the best narrator. You can hear him pauisng and stopping, breathing. Volume goes up and down, etc.
That there is no story at all. Or that all can be said in "tell the truth to everyone". That's it.
Not at all. Waste of money and time. I didn't finish the book, I tried to listen to it until chapter 11. I couldn't more, it was so boring. Once I listen to it during insomnia; it worked fine.
Don't buy it.
It was difficult for me to follow the story in audio. Actually, didn't complete the udiobook to the end. Many names, places to follow in audio. Maybe it's different in a written book for u to read.
For audio, it's better to have less characters (names, places). To easy follow.
The audio was ok.
Just couldn't follow the story, so it was (for me) confusing. I listen to books while driving, so maybe that's why difficult to follow. If u read doing other activities where u can concentrate more on the story maybe u'll find it ok.
Yes, I liked to hear the story rather then read it.
Well, everything. Im a Steve Jobs fan so my review is subjective. Present me with any Steve story and it's difficult for me not to like it.
The ones where the author speaks about his relation with Steve and some anecdotes.
Again, I am a fan of Steve Jobs and Apple. If u like his life, opinions and view of life and business, I think u'l like it like me. If not, u anyway may find it interesting.
Yes, if u are interested in trust in society.
The history of trust from (very) ancient times.
From the audio, I do understand his English (Im a Spanish speaker), so that's enough for me to say the audio is just fine.
Do you trust me?
It's different from other Schneier books (Secrets and Lies, Beyond Fear) and he concentrates only in trust (a part of security). So it was interesting to know about this field, but it was not (for me) THE Book like the ones I just mentioned. Anyway, nice audio book.
The story is good, but the author is not a reader, it's very hard to understand him. Why is Audible allowing that the authors read their books if they are not good for that?
Yes, but if Christopher is the one who reads the book, I would never buy abother AudioBook from him.
Disappointment because of the audio. Very hard to understand, terrible in fact.
No, my point is clear by now.
