This is not a book, is a conferece J. Maxwell gave, based on his book "Winning with people".
I recommend to read (or listen) the book, because this speach is a cut off version of the other book (with 25 ways to win this people).
I have listened several audiobook from J. Maxwell, when possible I recommend to listen to the books read by himself. He has the clear idea on where does emphasis is needed and where passion needs to be put on.
This is not a book for one sitting because it has a lot of point to think about and reflect on. Its better to take it little by little.
In the whole, the book shows you how to watch thing from other point of view, in a way that makes you grow as a person and realize what is really important in life. The points are very simple and well founded, but sometimes not that easy to follow.
It is very remarcable how J. Martin reinforces his points not only on catholic belives, but also in other christian, buddhist and muslim believes.
The examples of people he uses makes you want to read several other books and biografies (I have done it already).
I would like to read it again the next decade. After 10 years of work experience Im sure it will bring a different view of a bussines.
The best part of the audio version is how Mike transmits the passion for the bussines that Jack Welch surely had. In several parts the book gets hard to follow because he is so exited telling what happened in certain meeting or in certain problem that he speeds up the story. But at the same time, is so contagious that makes you want to become the next GE's CEO
The preaches are very nicely achived, and very well founded. The narrative and the passion of Rick is contagious. But I didn't like that at certain point of the book, little by little, it hints that the purpose of everyone's life is to live in the church, by the church and for the church. The book doesn't show a way to find your purpose, it tries to convince you that everyone 's purpose is the church.
The book inspires to take action and fix several flaws you may have in your path for a more spiritual christian life.
Elijah's performance is great. The way he makes up the voices and the accents in every character is awesome. The difference he accomplishes reasembling a fake british accent and a true british accent is payless.
For me, as a foreign audio-reader, the performace adds a lot to the already great novel.Though the whole bookk the wording and grammar is not scholarly correct (p.e. I says, you was, by and by, etc.), but in the context, the time, the place, and the characters is just an awesome and amusing cultural sample of american literature. Much more enjoyable in audible that the paper version.
