    What made the experience of listening to The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business the most enjoyable?

    Minuses - 1) The author starts off with an attack on MBAs and a justification for the book. That is not necessary and doesn't resonate well. I very nearly gave up on it for that reason, so skip the first chapter. 2) This is not anything like an MBA, which is fairly obvious, but I think the title is unnecessarily misleading and should be changed to 'Shortcut to an MBA' or something like that.

    Pluses -1) The author has done an enormous amount of good research. 2) He covers a large amount of ground 3) He has some good insights on the topics he covers 4) The author narrates and it comes across really well. 5) There are ongoing online resources.

    Overall a good purchase - I bought it on audio and kindle

    What did you love best about New Sales Speak?

    Her enthusiasm and delivery, she's really top knotch. Take a look at some of her YouTube videos to get a feel for her delivery.


    What other book might you compare New Sales Speak to and why?

    How to deliver Ted Talks by Jeremy Donovan is the nearest I've listened to.


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

    No but I will look out for them.


    What did you learn from New Sales Speak that you would use in your daily life?

    Sometimes people say things that you already know, but in a way tht helps you communicate them better, and that's the case here. Things I noted were: how people judge you as a presenter, the three biggest qualities for sales success, are the slides for you or the audience, visual aides v aide memoires, are you informative or persuasive.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're looking to up your game as a presenter, don't only listen to what she says, but how she says it. This is a short piece but that's great as most audio books are too long.

    Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.

    Nate says: "A few pointers..."
    "Fantastic introduction to body language"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this book because it is informative and entertaining. So many insights that you will identify with.


    What did you learn from What Every BODY Is Saying that you would use in your daily life?

    I saw two people in a meeting at work, sitting close together but leaning far apart. It was having listened to the book that I could tell they really didn't like each other. So many insights you can apply to the real world. I also bought it in hard copy to see the images. Many are online.
